I don't like seeing 40s in normal day to day.
I get what you are saying. And from a technical perspective you might be right. But, here a few things to think about when you see posts on this thread in particular. We like to mod our own gear for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, we do so out of necessity, curiosity, improving engineering, or just for the fun of it. This thread is not about throwing on a block and getting the lowest temps. We like to mod, and screw around with our hardware. Some of these folks don't have the money to drop on gear such as in your sig rig.
I understand what you are saying but this is the wrong place to poke at what mods these guys are doing. We like to do things different for all the above reasons I stated. Its not just about getting the lowest temps with a block that someone else manufactured. You are more likely to see someone here machine their own block than to buy something off the shelf, which would be costly, but this group likes to think up different, new ways of doing the same thing.
No-one here is going to argue that a full cover block is not the better lower temp way to go long term. But think about the college kid who has his mom and dads old PC and just wants to make it a little bit better on a shoe-string budget. Or, and old fart like me who just likes to screw around with his PC and do things my own way too. There are lots of us weird folks on here like me. Not saying you are wrong, but you might think about this when posting remarks that could insult someone's hard work to do it different, and cheaper too I might add.
Is that logical?
