If the price is too high for your taste, there is the Full Nickel, all-metal Velocity which is only 1.4°C worse than the Signature and costs 100 bucks less, but I don't see anyone mentioning that relation. Going further, the Classic Supremacy block had the same performance related to the V2 and costs 140 bucks less, yet no one is mentioning that.
The only thing important, as it seems, is that a water block with more options, a unique design, with better performance, way better flow rates, is more expensive than the second-placed in performance, which has [B]just two[B] material version available, and has a much worse flow ratio. If you take all of this into account, doesn't it seem fair that the Magnitude is more expensive? I mean no one is forcing you to buy it. By the logic I have seen here the Classic Supremacy block is the best pick, which offers 307% more Performance per Dollar related to the V2.
So my question is. What is important to you?
Material choices and customization?
Country of origin?
Fancy marketing words like "space-grade" or "cast acrylic"?
It seems to me that the three available EK products cover each category, but still, I see a lot of flaming.
I have always respected the competition that was innovative enough to come up with their own products and own design
and had a unique look. The market is big enough to have competition and to push the boundaries so my primary role here is not to diss the competition.
I'm just trying to use some common sense here and to get some real feedback, other than "EK is garbage" so that EK can work on their upcoming products.
I really hope that we can avoid distasteful and rude comments, and have a healthy conversation and get insight on whats is important for members of this forum.
