Well maybe they need to get with the times...

Solid block Solid price. who cares about what it looks like. personally I like the shiny look, like previous posts just powdercoat if you dont like the look, and where the hell are you getting your powder coating done for a block part like this my local guy will do it for 10-15 bucks, 75 is just ridiculous when considering how small it is.

Some of you guys don't have a CLUE ...you think 75$ is a lot for this block ? lol ,most of the parts in this block are CNC machined from a solid stainless,made to last .. unlike some of the competitors that will make a block from some sheet metal and plastic,most of the blocks made by Koolance are just a joy to look at it and once you have one in your hand you will know what you payed for ,nickle plating won't chip like EK junk.
Koolance makes a lot of kick S WC parts,warranty is great and they will allow switching tops on their pumps ,the design /aesthetics needs a little refresh tho
I'm still on 370 rev 1.2 and love it (don't see the reason to get the new one since the perf. difference is just not there ,just my 2cents.gif

The CPU-380 is the top performer, but if you don't like the aesthetic then there are plenty of other blocks that won a silver award like the MIPS IceForce, the Swiftech Apogee, the DT Sniper, the Koolance CPU-370 and the XSPC Raystorm. All of them perform almost as well (1C delta) and are good choices.

bold = totally agree
and after take 2 day to think regarding this, I'm decide to go with 380, thanks for the review buddy, keep up the good work thumb.gif

Same. I'm a Bitspower person and after experimenting with various other manufacturers fittings, I will stay with Bitspower for just about everything I do.

I was seriously considering the XSPC Raystorm in Chrome until I read stren's reviews (and others), and while I can't knock the Raystorm (I have a regular one in my TC Folding Rig and it is awesome), I just can't ignore the fact that several reviews have shown that the CPU-380i is not only better, but for that "Chrome Look" and I going for on my current build, it's also $20 cheaper than the XSPC Raystorm Chrome.

I'll most likely be ordering one this Friday.
