Personal opinion about mixed products

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Always been trying to keep the products from the same company.

ect EK CPU blocks, and GPU blocks and so on..

how do you guys go about this ? do you just mix whatever you think looks best, or do you keep the components from the same company as much as possible ?

Personal opinion..

I can to think of it, as i am about the put a new build together. with a GTX 670. but i absolutly dread the new GPU design from EK, so been looking at other options..

but on the other hand, i don't really have a problem with the EK Supremacy block for the CPU.

I mix companies personally. I would get a DT GPU water block if such a thing existed. tongue.gif

Every loop I ever had back in the day was a Frankenloop.

Just don't mix elements.

I try to keep all blocks the same and then all fittings the same. Everything just looks better.

Also, how much of the GPU block are you going to see? It faces downwards....
