expensively true. i spent $150 on my initial XSPC kit. saw it on the shelf while at microcenter and thought "oh that would be a fun project for not much money". It took less than month before i started looking at GPU blocks. Found that the XSPC razor for my gtx780 was highly reviewed. i figured what the hell? i'm only in for $150 at this point so i spent another $150 on the vga block and back plate for a total of $300. great value. i could now overclock the cpu 1.2Ghz above stock and my computer still runs twice as quiet as it did at stock speed and air cooling. i saw a gain of 30+ fps playing arma 3 on its absolute highest settings.

.....that bliss lasted for another month. then i found you jerks.

now you have me rebuilding my system and dumping an additional..... honestly i don't want to count the total amount because i would have to kick myself for spending that much money on a system that was running perfectly fine. now you have me modding cases, adding radiators, running push/pull fan configurations (which costs a small fortune btw), reservoirs and upgrading pumps

so ya.....thanks guys yessir.gif

As long as ppl keep cracking their plexi tops, not likely tongue.gif. Derick has touched on this and one of the main reasons is that it's harder to mill acrylic. So not any time soon frown.gif.

Newer blocks that beat the summit cost about the same or less.

I had originally settled on the EK clear CSQ block. But i think the black ice acrylic top will keep the dark green/black theme i'm going for and look great.

I've had both the FC bridge and crystal links and I agree with lowfat. The Crystal links look way better!

Can I join the party? Also, I have the MSI Lightning 680, I am looking for the bridge so I can get rid of my J bend there on the block, anyone have a clue what its called? I have been on EK's Site about the FC Bridge, but... I can't find anything that looks closely to it.
