Very interesen question.
Also I look at this water block myself - and choose between it and the test leaders - Aquacomputer Next PVD Silver Vario Vision, Koolance CPU-400l, Alphacool XPX.
But judging by the reddit - it was bought by one and a half people who refuse to answer questions.

Those are some small fins. Judging from the pictures, it will perform very well but will need a high head pressure pump for best performance. I see it being one of the, if not, the most restrictive block on the market but if you have a dual pump setup with head pressure for days, this block would be a great block for you. I have a Swiftech SFK with 125micron fins and I can tell you temperatures on the Swiftech scale very well with pump speed / head pressure. The Signature V2 has 102microns channels.

I will know the results from the foundation black (AMD) once I get the new machine up and ready by end of this weekend. I am comparing it to an Heatkiller CPU IV and using D5 Next as the pump.

It's not easy trying to setup an new machine when I need an active PC and the CPU, Motherboard and GPU are all currently setup in another water cooled rig that needs to be transplanted over. Timing the change is difficult.

From what I've seen of this block, the water flow channels for heat absorption doesn't look large enough to cover the Ryzen CPU spread.

I wish an professional reviewer would look into it but there doesn't seem to be many other outside of thermal bench (VSG) and Igorlabs

Yeah, not a whole lot of interest in custom loop review. Techpowerup has been the best source for me in terms of decent quality review and number of blocks reviewed.

I miss the days of Marin's Liquid Labs...

VSG/Thermal Bench I believe does the cooling reviews for TechPowerUP now. They appear to be very detailed.

I just bought the V2 this morning after looking for reviews. It will be interesting to compare it against my V1. I run a 6W DDC pump and can verify that the flow rates are very weak with this pump/block combo.

GB Z68-UD7, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, 32GB GSkill ram, Seasonic M12D 850W. CPU and MB water cooled. Mountain Mods Pinnacle 24 case

I purchase tonight two best version of D5 pump - VPP655 and VPP755, with reservoir sure.
I believe, this power will be is a enough.

I hope for your feedback, because the reviews are at Optimus waterblock actually very contradictory.
I contacted German colleagues who owned the first version, they responded that performance is inferior to Aquacomputer and Alfacul.
The second version for the price is already equal to Aquacomputer Silver Vario PVD.
