    I've always liked Koolance's nickel plating and universal mounting. I do NOT like the top mounting bracket. It's always seems so flimsy/ugleh.

    Looks very much like a round shaped HK block. Without the full copper goodness.
    BUT it looks like a ninja shuriken, which is a very good thing.

    Tell us how it performs, go go go!

    the block is absolutely sexy.

    no comments can describe how the block looks up close.

    I just need to get the holder painted red and then it will compliment my current setup.

    Interesting. Must be cheaper than the HK 3.0 or Apogee GT. Im not sure it will do as well using that older style engraved slot cooling. I think the micro pins are the new thing.

    Micro pins have been a Swiftech thing for ages. The 350 also had micro-pins.

    Been messing with a 345 block and acutally, they are rock solid.. a little too solid. Makes the Dtek look like a peice of Foil.

    The older versions with the ball-bearing thingie did suck.

    This looks beautious - lets hope better flow and as good or better cooling as the 350.

    Anyhow here is the KL360 temps..

    They look a TAD bit better, but ambient are not working with me today.

    So take this as a grain of salt... and wait for a real tester to show real results.

    The 360 does show as an improvement tho.
    I would need to get multipul mounts down for it to be more accurate, which is why i am asking u guys to take this a a big grain of salt. :rofl:

    So...this may well be an HK killer like I said in the other thread. :)


    Looking forward to this test as I want to get one to replace my trusty 345 Plexi.

    there all scared of me... :laugh:

    no but seriously.. i think they are waiting for a bulk collection to throw on at once.

    The 360 > 350.

    If you were looking for a block, you wont be disappointed with the 360.

    I have not had a Koolance block since the one with a plastic yellow transparent top. That was a while ago.

    Nice raw numbers to get a glimpse of what is coming. If the block is offered in 3/8" or 9.5mm my interest would be peaked.
