[watercool] Heatkiller for AMDs TR4 - Page 4

post #31 of 93
Well, you already kinda guessed it: no, the block will not be available this week. In our supplier's shop, the machine that they produced the parts for us on died and had to be replaced. They were able to produce all parts necessary for the mounting brackets, but are seriously behind schedule for the block itself. So, the mixed message is this:


The Conversion kit for the already existing Heatkiller IV CPU blocks is available and ready to be ordered through our shop.

We finally could assemble the two prototypes for the TR4 block itself this Monday and run them through our test benches for the rest of this week. We hope to have enough data to make the final decisions beginning next week, and aim to release the block to the public in ~2 weeks. We are super grateful for your patience and understand and share your excitement.

Will you be sending out samples to review outlets once production starts? There is a serious lack of independent data on how well the TR4 blocks on the market perform, and most of us can't justify buying several blocks just to find the one they really want.

I'm really tempted to buy your block when it becomes available, but so far the only testing I've seen is from Hardocp where they showed that the XSPC and Bykski designs performed within 1 degree centigrade of each other. I appreciated the testing, but it didn't include anything about flow restriction, etc.

I'll jokingly say we should start a "get VSG a ThreadRipper setup fund" kind of thing, but I suspect @geggeg would want to swat me with a radiator or something for playfully wording it that way tongue.gif he does do nice and thorough testing though!

His testing would blow Kyle's testing out of the water.

I was tempted to buy a proper flow meter just to test the TR4 block I have, but without multiple blocks, it was a waste of time.

We already have one independent tester signed for a sample after release. But demand is low at the moment. We'll see how that changes over time smile.gif

As far as I know, he has a very packed schedule already. But yes, of course we would love to supply him with a sample if he should decide to make a comparative test smile.gif

Patiently waiting for this. Rocking a EK block at the moment but would like to see what you guys bring to the table.
