Ill check back later, omw out the door to work I plan on adding it into my loop tomorrow on my day of tomorrow so expect pics!
Edit* so at work now, anyone have an opinion/experience with the HK GPU blocks? (Specifically the universals, I was trying to find some reviews/performance numbers but had no luck but I'm assuming performance is similar to their CPU blocks, I do know they make a high quality product)
The reason I went universal over the liquid extacy full block was because I just couldn't justify the cost of the liquid extacy block (total cost with shipping came to like $170 or $180 which is more than I spent on the HK block, fittings, heatsinks, and the titan PCI slot cooler, and also more than almost every other full cover from every other manufacturer) plus I can use it on future GPU upgrades which is nice.
I went with the HK over the EK not only because I prefer the look of the HK but also because of the locations of the G1/4 ports being on both sides for better tubing options and I won't have to use 90 degree fittings.Edited by Mike84 - 6/26/13 at 8:22am
