EVGA Releases the Hydro Copper Waterblock for X58 Classified Motherboards

During the weekend EVGA released a new part - the Hydro Copper waterblock (PN: 200-CU-HC59-B1) for its EVGA X58 Classified top of the line motherboards. Featuring a sleek black top and a full copper design, the Hydro Copper waterblock can drop the operating temps of the X58 Classified by half, and still it won't make your watercooling system too restrictive because of the block's unique E-Flow design. Priced at $129.99 USD the block ships with both hi-flow 1/2-inch and 3/8-inch fittings depending on your needs. The Hydro Copper is fully compatible with the following EVGA parts: 141-BL-E759-XX, 141-BL-E760-XX, and 141-BL-E761-XX.

Too bad the Classified board is 550 bucks here, I would've considered it.

Is it just me, or does $130 seem to be too much for any waterblock, let alone this dinky chipset trinket?

Ah, I suppose so. You're already paying out the ass for a i7 setup, another $200-500 on WC parts depending on what brand and if you are going to WC your video card(s), why not throw this extra $130 on the pile?

Hmm yeah.. kinda overpriced for a small piece.. and seeing its simplistic flow design and having not much "ridges" on to it, it does not look that hard to manufacture..
