I know that several people have recommended EK water blocks, but I'm pretty nervous about the one I linked in the opening post, for the following reasons: I was reviewing the return policy on FrozenCPU's website, and they say I have to return incompatible parts within 7 days AND I have to pay a 20% restocking fee; that's bull****, considering how many non-reference PCBs are out there. Manufacturer's don't have complete foolproof compatibility lists either, and mine in particular has only been verified for compatibility "visually". When you factor in the shipping costs that start building up to ship incompatible parts back to FrozenCPU.. I'd rather go with a part with verified compatibility. I did some googling, and about the only thing that I can find is:
This seems like maybe the way to go. What do you guys think? Is heatkiller a good brand, or should I risk it and go with EK?
The other thing to consider, is that FrozenCPU isn't stocking the EK cooler at the moment, while the heatkiller is in stock.
