Thanks for the advice, did that and they said Copper + Nickel is no problem, So the EK block it is.

Ok so turns out my boss and by extension, I can get those Cougar fans for $10 each and they look absolutely amazing so they win for price to performance and looks ratio.

Just my opinion here.
Mixing metals is mixing metals.
Yes, nickel is relatively safe. And yes, many if not most do not have any problems.
But I just don't understand why people rush to cover their blocks with yet an other metal (nickel)

All mixed metals will eventually start to eat up at each other, all of them.
Maybe not.tomorrow, maybe not in 5 years, but the will eventually.
So I just don't understand the desire for nickel plating.

And an 80mm thick rad like that should absolutely be in push/pull.

The problem is that I can only find the Alphacool and XSPC water blocks in full copper, and I was warded away from the XSPC and I can't actually see any copper on the Alphacool ones so, if you can suggest a good waterblock for a GTX 770 in Australia, then be my guest, but otherwise I don't have much in the way of choice.

The other option is if there is a good Nickel plated radiator that would perform similarly to the NeXxos Monsta

Well, the Alphacool fittings are not plated inside, only outside, bare brass on the wetted parts.
But Alphacool fittings are limited in choice.

And no such thing as a nickel plated rad, at least the inside would not be.
But Mayhem stuff already come with anti-corrosion juice in it.
So you should be fine.
As I said before, most, almost all, don't experience problems with mixing copper and nickel.

What really bugs me it that EK Supremacy blocks have a stainless steel jet plate.
I would prefer to see a brass or copper jet plate....or even a plastic one!
I don't know if other makers use a stainless steel jet plate or not.

Ok, screw this anyone know of American or any other water cooling part distributors that ship internationally? I am sick and tired of PCCG being my best option but they have hardly anything in the way of parts.
