Twins! You as well get plenty of drool.gif I was really leaning towards XSPC blocks for my 670's, but the more I read about and see the Heatkillers blocks, the more I'm interested in their products.

IO have been ooking around and trying to figure out which block would be the best deal price,looks and performance wise for the 7970 I should be getting delivered today. I know that performance should be a higher priority than looks and try to keep to that idea as long as it's not something totally hideous. But this Heatkiller block even if it didn't perform well would still make it on top 3 choices list. Which to be honest I still haven't even been able to decide a top 3 list yet. Guys what would you put on a top 3 list if you were personally buying a waterblock for your 7970?

In no Particular order ...

HeatKiller X3
Swiftech Komoda
XSPC Razor

After that ... If we ignore looks

Oh and to clear up a minor discrepancy... I've NEVER run an additive in my loop. The coolant is crystal clear and the opaque tubing that I run doesn't require an anti-microbial. I like a fairly dark room so the lack of sunlight is a definite plus in this regard. No additives not even Killcoil. Was considering it but I already have copper brass and nickel in my loop. I thought better of adding another metal. thumb.gif

Strange how no one is selling Durelene in Europe...........

If that's misinformation then well I don't know what to say.
Eddy doesn't want anyone experienced reviewing that block. He emailed Tweak Town who only put it up against a handful of blocks. In fact, he was so incensed that Sidewinder(Jab-Tech maybe?) had the audacity to make such comparisons that he threatened(did?) to hit them with a Liable suit.
So you go ahead and keep guzzling the Kool-Aid. I have no axe to grind where EK is concerned. The bulk of my Loop(FC, CPU, Pump Top and Fittings) are all EK.
Two or 3 reviews are culled through Google Search. If you wish to refute me at least have something a little more substantial and from the accepted Review Sites. But I doubt that will ever happen because Eddy isn't asking them to review it. Two or 3 obscure reviews don't count as "Many" btw. thumb.gif

I found this test:

http://www.hardwaremax.net/wasserkuehlung/wasser-kuehler/487-test-ekwb-supremacy-der-verstossene.html?showall=0&start=3

the older EK HF is better than the newer block in there

http://www.hardwaremax.net/wasserkuehlung/wasser-kuehler/487-test-ekwb-supremacy-der-verstossene.html?showall=0&start=4

His conclusion:

For us it was quite tedious to evaluate the Supremacy. So we had secretly hoped that some performance improvements for cooling power would be available. But this is not the case. Instead, you get a cooler that was well made and special design features. One must also write to the fact that the performance is excellent, and for a highly overclocked system easily enough. Many points collects EKWaterblocks your accessories, because here everything is here that you need for all modern sockets.

But the Gelid Extreme makes her a lot, so when we entstdand partly the impression that the Producer wants to increase the cooling capacity based on the Thermal Grease. So you can talk throughout Viewed from a well-rounded package that is available at a price of about 60 €. Its high-quality, and excellent accessories with all its aspects and possibilities is better than sum of its predecessor. So it is not the cooling capacity, but the overall package was brought to us our exclusive award.

I for one love all of my EK blocks. They are the older Nickel-plexi ones and they are sexy as hell! No issues so far either other than some staining which is to be expected when using Mayhems Grape Red...

I have no idea. Don't really feel like pulling them apart and since I don't plan on changing the color scheme any time soon I'm not really fussed about it...

The HK's are a little more pricey, but I feel the quality and attention to detail are definitely there. thumb.gif

Even the smallest thing like providing pre-cut thermal pads, which is something you're not aware of until you open the package, is a VERY welcome aspect of HK's presentation. My previous experiences with Koolance and EK for my old GTX 580's, where I had to cut the pads down on my own, leaves a lot of opportunity to frustrate the end-user - especially if you have more than one GPU. mad.gif

I was looking at the XSPC's myself, but ultimately, I just fell in love with the Nickel-Black look of the HK block. drool.gif

I filled my blocks with vinegar and let it sit for about an hour. Rise and repeat until most, if not all, of the staining is gone. Even with my EK plexi Nickel EN blocks, the plating was not affected by it. Removing the other gunk (like plasticizer or debris from flaking blocks or radiators) is a different matter, though, and would most likely require taking apart the block to scrub it clean with a soft towel or toothbrush.

After struggling with my plexi Nickel EK blocks on my 580's, I think I'm done with the novelty of plexi blocks, for now. In the end, it was too much work to keep up with the clean appearances and it's not like it performed any better either. redface.gif

Personally, I think they tanked their business when their customer service went down the drain with the discoloring of their blocks. Then, to turn around and say that it must be someone elses problem, not theirs, was a slap in the face to the community. Design or not, EK and Eddy cake take their Liability Suit and shove it.
