'Bout to splooge on a GTX 680 waterblock. Someone quick, tell me if I should wait for the Heatkillers to come back in stock on FrozenCPU, or buy a non-nickel plated EK block. Also, is the backplate worth it? I heard that the blocks are real heavy.

They definitely have some weight to them. You'll probably be okay without it, but I feel a bit safer knowing my 6950 has one.

I would wait for Heatkiller to come back in stock. Not that it's a better block, but Eddy (the owner of EK) has pretty much pissed of the watercooling community over the Nickel issue.

Quick question: If you turn your computer off or put the computer in sleep/hibernate mode, does the pump still run? Is it meant to run 24/7?

The nickel plating would stain and corrode despite just using regular distilled water and EK/Eddy did not acknowledge it as their fault, but instead he blamed it on the users and also other companies. They had a formal lab test about this too, but he still did not take the chance to fix the issue. There are now EN Nickel blocks, which are more resistant to the issues, but some people still get the staining and corroding.

Here is the thread about it on OCN:

It shuts off and it works fine if you do shutoff or decide to run your computer 24/7.

Nope. Only runs with the computer on unless you hook it up to run like that but no need.
