Does it matter? That wasn't the issue at hand. The issue was whether or not companies should or should not do it; and EVGA does. You will always save money by doing it yourself, at least in this hobby.

Once again, this exists. FrozenCPU offers this service to all their customers for both EK Waterblocks and Heatkiller Waterblocks on the high-end nVidia cards. It's too much of a logistical and financial nightmare for a company like nVidia or AMD to offer this, nor do they have interest, so they leave it to the distributors instead. And like Jakuson said, it's just too small of a market. Computer enthusiasts like us are a minority market.
