Funny. I was just gonna post that. Watched the video a little earlier and considering the price, seems like a pretty good deal.

so it's ok i wanna bought this

but if the CPU is delidded, maybe the supremacy will be better?

supremacy will always be better, but not but too much. Thermal performance with one of these cheap blocks should be better than the run of the mill CLC blocks, but a few degrees off of the average mainstream waterblock.

On the top end, they are fighting for tenths of a degree. As a budget block, it isn't bad. But pair it with a budget rad and a good budget pump, you should have better cooling than a CLC with similar rad space rad space, but still about 3-8c off of a good custom loop.

Thank you,

what do you mean by CLC ? It's All-in-one watercooling system? Like corsair H110 ?

CLC are closed loop coolers. A subset of AIO coolers, that have aluminum rads basic pumps and cannot be expanded or opened for service or expansion.

H110i is a CLC, swiftech h220x2 is an expandable AIO. Just two examples.

Can i expect to be better than h110i?

I had these blocks before. The first block, you have to be careful as it might hit one of your MB heatsinks/shield. You can check jays2cents vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo9m0KJrIy4, its just a different top/cover, but same same. 2nd block, is for gpu I think, it won't cool the vrms.

Do you think I should buy the acetal/pom version or the acrylic one ?

I don't care about aesthetic but it might be useful to see inside the acrylic. Because the acetal one is completely close except the fittings
post #59 of 85
Pom/acetal is a more durable material compared to acrylic. Less likely to get stress fractures from tightening fittings too much.

I have always avoided acrylic options when I could.

Getting better temps than h110i would depend on the other variables in the loop. Pump, fans, and radiator performance. If using two 240 radiators with above average fans and a halfway decent pump, then definitely better temps than h110i. Similar radiator with similar fans and decent pump with give a degree or two after temps stabilize.

If just cooling a mainstream CPU, the difference between one and two 240 radiators will really just mean being able to lower fan speed for similar performance. Add a gpu in the loop, and then you will see more of a difference in temps from one rad to two.

I have the black one. I think you can put a small LED on the acrylic one, not really sure,. I see a lot of these in taobao.
