^ The HeatKiller blocks and back plates are so nice. They've really matured in appearance over time.

I love EK's blocks for a few reasons;

1. They're the ONLY company that sells numerous product accessories, many of which are aesthetic, and they sell white acetal tops, which I love. If other companies were not so focused on super shiny externals, I'd buy from them, but sadly they aren't.

2. I get really great performance with my Supreme-HF, granted I haven't tried any of the new blocks because, frankly, they don't look nice unless they are all used together in a similar themed rig, but my last gen blocks are doing great!

3. They're attractive, in my opinion. I love their bridges, and I love their logo's design. I have no issues with the CSQ blocks, and I especially love their black acetal tops. I'm not such a big fan of the plexi tops, but I don't like plexi that much regardless. I will continue to give business to EK because I like what their products look like, and the performance is good.

However, if I ever want to do a copper build I know that Alphacool (or is it Phyoba?) is out there with their sweet copper themed blocks, but that's really the only instance in which I would personally use other blocks.

Respect. Come on guys lighten up on the EKWB issue, I figure design changes are a way of enhancing your latest rig, who wants their GTX7XX or HD8XXX to look like a watercooled GTX 295 or HD4970? If you were a prolific upgrader, you would sell off your old system and snatch up a matching kit from whatever company sold the most appealing products. I think EK service is exceptional, especially with their cooling configurator service which I have been using to identify which boards I can water cool.

Right now my RATS NEST PC doesn't care about brand loyalty, even the fittings are from 5 different companies, the only thing that's doubled up is the aquacomputer aquatsream xt ultras, so I probably wouldn't want a plexi CSQ but I wouldn't cry if I had a nickel acetal one. However I reckon if you have issues with the new EKWB then consider this; not only did they release new waterblocks for the latest graphics cards, cpus and ram, but they also went out of their way to ensure that the majority of high end watercooling users who didn't have the latest or weren't going to spend so much could also have a slice of the CSQ pie on slightly older hardware.

I personally go for the highest performers with exceptional quality, and I like European engineering for that regard (TFC Feser Monsta, Aquastream XTs, Upcoming 79x0 NI-BI from Watercool, noctua fans). Even at the higher prices I pay, construction and durability are a must, and the only built in obsolescence that these devices have is when or if a new one comes out you may want it.

I agree European engineering is were it is as far as blocks and coolant are concerned.

I too have a P67 Sabertooth sitting in my build room waiting to be put into a 600TSE. I want to get the Z77 Sabertooth fan for it though...
