Makes one think maybe you're relinquishing your current position on dibbs for this block.

Having had the pleasure to watch you evolve from enthusiast to near Pro WC block builder, I've taken your above quote as a given before you even made the statement

Your blocks as finnished products are way sexy But, these flat give me a woody: http://www.rigshowcase.com/img/60DjEY4/3851

I posted several questions I had for fsrdaddy, but he had already answered them in a PM.

Yes I have, unfortunately I did not write it down, the heaviest one is #2 (mine) weighs in at over 600 grams #1 is around 585 and #3 was never weighed but was the lightest until #4 which I will weigh when complete. It is the lightest yet and from what I can tell right now is very close to an intel stock cooler in weight.

Some people simply do not understand this. When I posted my first block for appraisal someone gave me a price of $45, I laughed. I would have smashed it with a sledge hammer before I let anyone have it for that!

Flat out, if you're a serious water cooler, these are more than worth it. Not only do they work superbly, they look incredible in your case. Makes the Apogee look like a toy with its little plastic top! LOL! These blocks are for serious Water Cooling enthusiasts. For people who understand the work that has gone into something that wasn't produced by some mindless manufacturing machine. I've said it before and I'll say it again, these blocks are functional pieces of art.

EDIT: Not to mention, these would be IDEAL for a chilled water setup. Due to their all metal construction, there's nothing to get brittle and break.

I agree 100% and I admire fstfrddy's talent and dedication. Plus, I've dealt with him before in a trade, and he is an honest person who I would do business with again. I wish I had the money to get one of his blocks... and I probably would if I could learn to save my $... but as soon as I get some I end up spending it... lol.

Being a fruegal Scotsman, price can be a strong genetic consideration after all copper wire was a by-product of two Scots fighting over a penny

But all jokes aside, I've never had a problem goin off my budget for any well made, functional and passionately handcrafted one of kind item. I will own one of fstfrddys' blocks, of that I've been assured. And I don't mind waiting for a block of this quallity, as I stated before the idea of owning Stinger V8 is way appealing

And if ANYONE doubts the merits/performance of fstfrddys Stinger blocks, they need only read the post by Renegade, the man who currently owns more of them then anyone else on the planet including fstfrddy.

And if Renegade doesn't start a prestigeous club for Stinger Owners Only, rest assured that I will in the not too distant future.

If I did that, me and fred would be the only members! LOL!
