its good for out of the box cooling, maybe a price drop will change everyone's minds about this product.

According to techPowerUp you are correct sir. I quoted a conversion so perhaps us Americans are just getting a better deal?

Why did they bother with a CPU cooler as well? Is it just me or are the Sapphire engineers lacking in smarts these days

They needed a pump somewhere...

I'm guessing to have an effective WC setup each component has its own loop? Or I guess you could group together some less heat intensive things in one loop... im not a WCer so I duno

If they wanted to include CPU cooling, they should've at least give it a 240mm x 120mm radiator.

Bottom line it's garbage and the block on the CPU, OMG who ever designed that needs to be kicked in the groin.

I agree, a CPU block on a closed loop VC water cooling system is stupid. Unless you have a 2 CPU socket motherboard, a CrossFireX system would be a waste. If it was just a pump, a radiator, and the card/block that would be ideal. Just out of curiosity, has anyone found a retailer that carries them?
