Perfect. Thanks for finding that. I love the look of this block....and it turned out to be a pretty good performer.

looking forward to seeing what yours looks like ugotd8. If your is different, then mine is unexplainable.
EDIT: the only way I could fathom it being a defect is if a large portion of the acetal wall is missing at threads. Hole cant be punched any more towards periphery. And if large portion is missing, and threads go all the way down, water is going to make it through a slit between bottom of threads and block.
EDIT2: I just posted on the alphacool forum support thread, so hopefully I will get an answer. It really looks like by design with sharp edges, and cant see any marred areas or how it could be miscut, but like others, my gut is telling me no one is that stupid to sell something like that on purpose...so have to wait and see what they say, or if no answer ...wait on pics from ugotd8 and confirm or not.
Interesting, with all the reviews on this block up, not 1 pic that has an angle where you could see the hole.


The block just showed up from PPCS, it is IDENTICAL to yours in every way. Once you hold it in your hands it's impossible to think anything other than it was designed that way. There are zero threads on one half of the opening.

Anyone seen the MIPS 2011 block in stock anywhere biggrin.gif

Did you already run tests to get base numbers on your previous block?

Yup, I have some numbers, although I won't be able to direct compare them. I'm adding a GPU block as well as a Nova 1080 to my loop.

Do the block after the 1080. That alone will negate any comparison at all. wink.gif


I would compare, but I accidentally put my HF into my other rig hehe. Oops.

Hehe, would love to but I've already got it completely torn down.

FWIW, the DT Direct has passed the first test on my socket. Mounted it and filled it with a syringe full of distilled. No leaks at all after an hour. Onward and upward. thumb.gif

The true leak test is while under pressure. And with as much water as the tubes and nova will hold, that's gonna be a lot of pressure. Anyhow, no worries, mine doesn't leak either. Looking good.
