Need to experiment with flow so ordered something.


You're doing it wrong!

No RGB? That will at least give you a couple degrees difference I'm sure.....!

j/k

Thank you for feedback. Much appreciated!

Its got rgb but im allergic to disco biggrin.gif

Quick testing fwiw i hit 68.50 but i ran a prime and logged temps 6 hours in on bykski@ 67.3 which i have screens of.

I will do the same when bubble free in a day with some cure time albeit mx2 requires no cure time.

It's shaping up to be a solid block and very aesthetically pleasing.

EKWB is going to release today a monoblock for the zenith with more on the way, Asrock and gigabyte where promised but from the looks of it.... Same cooling engine as the standard block.. Not good. Unless the extra mass helps.. Not good... It could even be worst than the standard with the added vrm heat.. We'll see.

Sounds like it's working about the same as others do.

I agree with L33tBastard, need the RGB working. Don't use red as it is hotter; bllue is usually the coolest. tongue.gif

So the Bykski beats it by a little bit?

Good to know!

What CPU and overclock are you running? I looked back but didn't see it posted. redface.gif

I had a look at the EK monoblock. It does the contact plate does look a bit bigger than the EK TR4 one. At least it looks like the cpu does not touch the plate screws as I think it does on the EK TR4 water block. I mcan be wrong. My problem with the EK monoblock is that the actual fin area...looks the same as the normal cpu block, and that's a shame. Maybe bitspower would come up with something better. I'd preffer EK or some other non restrictive block or monoblock for the parallel SLI and CPU loop but I guess I'll have to wait for more results on the Phanteks and some heartily description about it.

I ordered it I will know in about 3-4 weeks since it wont ship till 11/2. If you look at the picture they slid the chip to the side so the plate screws look like they wont contact the IHS but they will.

Edit: I am wrong the plate is bigger.

lol yeah. Took me a while to actually see that because of reflection. But yeah that was my first feeling when I looked at the picture. But still, if you look at the top fixation points of the block to the motherboard and if you look at the actual socket it looks like that if the screws touch the cpu will be by just a tinny bit.

EDIT: oh ok, that's good then. Leaves us with the tinny fin area....

Ill snap a pic next time i unmount it

The base copper plate covers TR and then some. Gueestimate overlap is 1/4"
