Wow, are all blocks for this gen going to have such complicated flow, or was this artistic to charge more? With the higher TDP, I'm not sure if more restriction is a good idea.

Likely yes, as the vrm now needs cooling on both sides of the gpu.

Heat traps inside a water block that has no liquid in it and or air bubbles..... Have you liquid cooled before?!?

As long as the air is out of the loop and there are no "dead zones" I call them creating pockets of air the liquid will more all of the best away from the localized area. It is just how liquid cooling works. Otherwise any and all corners in any situation would have been a true issue ever since.

Coming from a person who only uses liquid cooling I'd like to say I'm on top of it. Liquid doesn't get "trapped" and retain heat. Air does if there is a pocket that didn't get bled out.

In this example I like to say "I see dumb people with money!"
