I agree completely. I personally think more manufacturers should do it, or atleast give the option as an accessory or something. There's so much you could do, it gives you a canvas for something that was not previously doable unless you made you own - which is actually gaining traction in the modding field I've noticed lately. They could even implement it in as part of the stock motherboard cooling if they really thought about it.

Sexy beast that mobo is. biggrin.gif

I'm still trying to find a top performing block for the 3770k that will be on this. Red tubing, Matte black fittings, Red Led Fans, Black Antec df 85.. I'm worried the Koolance cpu 370 might clash with the scheme of things. Any suggestions on a black cpu block to match the look of this?
post #17 of 329
Well there are a couple, you could get the Apogee HD, Bitspower Summit EF, Heatkiller Rev 3.0, Koolance CPU-370SI or the XSPC RayStorm. Forgive the Aussie site lol, it's our biggest store and google brings it up first redface.gif

I'd assume you'd like the RayStorm more than the others as you can put LED's in it and it's a black finish, and it's also one of the top performers if I remember correctly.

Edit: That was just a quick go through of the site, I believe there are a couple more that others may be able to point out. We don't get everything here in Aus but when we do we pay through our teeth for them lol.

Should i be concerned about an Acetal holddown versus a metal hold down.. And im a big fan of Copper..vs Nickel.. Are the EK nickel blocks still something to stay away from

I think they're all held in by metal mounts... apart from the CPU-370SI which is all one piece I think. Either way I don't really think there's an issue with it. I mean if there was a problem they wouldn't sell and they probably wouldn't have been produced in the first place. tongue.gif

The EK Nickel plating issue is a whole 'nother ball game. Lol. Some people aren't having any issues with them, others still are. So who knows. The only thing you really could do is find out for yourself if you really want to. But if you go that route I'd suggest using their coolant so they can't blame you for saying it was the coolant or something in the loop that caused any issues if they did arise, atleast that's the way I look at it. They can't really refuse a warranty claim when it would be there own product that caused it. You can play it safe though and just go for the RayStorm, can't really go wrong I suppose.
