I have seen cases of people using their older CPU blocks to make single slot solutions, but it is fugly.
I sound like a Koolance fanboy.
I have always loved koolance, i have several cpu blocks and a gpu block for my280. So i think i am a fan,.
But I think the point Fit was making is that it was just rushed out, they could have added just a little more design and it would have looked wicked. I like the polished metal look, but it's the outline that kills it for me. So i don't think we were locked and loaded ready to flame but mearly stating the obvious.
In a rush to get to market, a good koolance observation is that "theres no creativity in waterblocks" and i agree, they prob were so interested in first to market, that they just banged it out. No biggie, but we're just looking for some style along with functionality,..
