Optimus Waterblock

I am wondering if anyone has experiences with Optimus CPU Waterblocks. I just ordered one of there AM4 blocks out. There aren't many reviews out there except the hardocp one (using the intel v1 block) and they had some very good results.

I hadn't heard of them until a week ago when they posted their new product line on Reddit. Their Foundation Ryzen block definitely has my attention, but I'm not sure if it would be enough better than my currently owned blocks to justify buying.

Definitely curious to see some reviews on the Ryzen block since it's supposedly optimized for the chiplet layout.

I never heard of them,But the block design looks good enough to me to run,I do love how basic their fittings and pump/res looks.Some of us like the bare basic simple design to things like that.

Ah, they are still alive. They didn't even have an AMD block when I went looking for my build so I assumed they went defunct.

Duh, I just ordered Anfi-Tec Drei. It's not perfect (nearly) but should also cool the new Ryzen well. I do have not yet 3K series Ryzen. I talked with Martin Beck and he said improvement could be only 1°C or less. I could do also some mini review when I get that 3950X...

Thanks for the information. I still want to do some test. If the performance is not much difference, I am going to use either the Black Nickel CPU IV block as i think full metal blocks looks the best, in particular the black nickel. We have not seen many improvement in water blocks and radiators for long time.

It looks like their new Foundation blocks have abandoned the idea of the occasional thick fin for o-ring support. They do look good though.
