Hi, I'm going to upgrade my liquid cooling setup soon, & i'm thinking of getting a Heatkiller 3.0 or Koolance 370 CPU block, but i've noticed a strange design on the bottom of Koolance block.

Does anyone know if this is really how it looks?
I've also seen other pics where the bottom is flat.

Yeah I think it's just a reflection of something. By the way, why not get a EK Supreme HF?

From what i've read there's not much differnce in flow & heat exchange with some of the newer ones, but i will check out the EK Supreme to.

There's a chart in these forums somewhere where the guy compared the EK and Koolance. EK has the best flow but Koolance beat it by like 2-3c. Either block is good. Koolance is like 20 bucks more expensive though

Koolance CPU-370 is definitely the best performing block on the market, but that doesn't really say much when a lot of great CPU blocks are only ~1C worse. Personally, I suggest the XSPC Rasa a ton, it's a great performing block for the cost, being $40 less than the CPU-370, while only performing ~1.5C worse. I'd put the $40 else where and buy an extra 240mm radiator, where you'd see a ~5C drop. If you've maxed out the amount/size of radiators you can use, and money isn't really an issue, then the Koolance CPU-370 is a no brainer.

OK i found a review on the Koolance 370 at PureOC & from the pics they are showing, the bottom is defenetly flat, so the first pic i found must have a reflection on it?
& i don't mind paying extra for the Koolance, as i really like look & design + every .1-1.ect drop in temp will be good to finally see in my new setup. I've been stuck with a thermaltake bigwater 120x1 = CPU only, for a long time & getting 36 in idle @ default clock, so i'm now going with a black ice SR1 280 = push & pull. So the OC'ing to at least 4.0GHz can begin.

No..the base is not flat ..the newer versions of the block have bowed base for better contact/spread ,there is more and more bowed base type of blocks this days and it's a good thing ;

Aquacomputer Kryos is also another great choice.

In reviews I've seen that include it, the Aqua Computer Cuplex Kryos HF edges out all all the others in thermal performance.

If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
