For cleaning out the rad before use, should I bother purchasing a cleaning product like Mayhems Blitz, or is vinegar/water just as good? Would filling it with a 5% or 10% straight vinegar mixture for a few hours be safe, or do you really need to dilute it?

I'll check it out, thanks

If you look at the XtremeRigs results, the SR2 is no sacrifice until you get into what would be downright loud. I've used both those rads a number of times and would take the SR2 or GTS over the GTX every time.

Or Optimus Foundation. Either one blows the Velocity away in performance and build quality. I didn't say anything initially because I'm tired of the "you're being mean to EK" whining.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Hi,
Yeah foundation is awesome for sure but also 120.us
Heatkiller 4 pro is probably a little cheaper under 100.us but better than the velocity at 110.us
OP is in Canada so shipping from Germany I imagine he's already doing that might as well go to watercool and check out their offerings

Optimus being in Chicago could be a cheaper shipping option though but I read Canada is locking down the the country so also they don't have any gpu blocks

Yeah I was going to say quiet = GTS series

But even on TPU velocity is pretty low on the board.

There is no need to purchase a separate cleaning product. I have never had an issue keeping my blocks/rads keep with vin/water. You can be very heavy-handed with the vinegar...it's mostly water after all. I've done 20%.

I've settled on the SR2! Thanks!

I checked out the Optimus Foundation block, looks really awesome! I can't find much comparing it to the EK Velocity, but I did find a post by someone saying they dropped 5c switching.
They also have a Signature V2 block, how does that compare with the Optimus Foundation? Is it just aesthetics?

Thanks for the chart!

Yeah the country is starting to button up with the human malware going around. Hard to say what kind of effect that will have.

I don't mind paying the extra for the foundation though. Didn't realize the Velocity wasn't as loved.

Any recommendation for a different GPU block? The EK was one of the only options I could find for the Strix 5700xt

Hi,
It's good but foundation to me is better at 120.us instead of 180.us
Plus it has a ton of bow on it so does the foundation which I doubt a 6700k needs anyway

That's why I said heatkiller 4 pro at first it fits your chip plus any 6-8 core too if you ever upgrade board/ chip later
Under 100.us likely and it's quite good and watercool also have awesome gpu blocks.

Didn't notice the big price difference! I definitely don't need the Signature than.

Forgive me, but what do you mean by bow?

I checked watercool and they don't currently have a block for the strix 5700xt, not sure if they have plans for one. I made a post on the thread you linked, thanks

Hi,
Cold plate bow is a bulge away from the base of the water block

For example my 9940x is like the inside of a bowl or cove so a bow in the cold plate makes it fit the chips shape freaking Intel nonsense design

On the other thread he's good about comments pretty quickly daily or maybe 2 days max.
