    Other than the choice of the Tuniq TX-2 Thermal Compound, I liked the presentation and details of this test. T_ski, as always, you give an excellent and thorough review. The price of this block just blows me away. That is pretty damn cheap with Danger Den products, especially with the craftsmanship involved. Looks like I may go with a TEC or this CYO water loop. Thanks.

    Actual testing was with AS5. CPU contact only was shown with the TX-2. I just used the TX-2 because I have a lot of it laying around. I'm running low on AS5 and hate to waste it until I get more :(

    The one that I have{same one for AMD} had a small backplate.

    I do love the block, and my temps are low, I would like to see this block work with the accelerators (if that's what they call it where the put a flat peace of plastic where the water is coming in).

    My block that I received from them looked shinier to me as well.


    The one thing that I didn't like was the instructions to install it. Might be a good thing to post a picture of what that looks like.

    No I didn't take a pic of it. I will if I take the motherboard out sometime for you.

    Its small and was about the size of the block itself. Yours just went in the motherboard holes then?

    Hey T, I was wrong I was thinking about doing my video card block that day.
    No back plate for the AMD one either.

    Sorry about that....

    Do you think you could review the one with the Brass top? I would like to see if the temperatures would be better with it.

    AFAIK there isn't any kind of performance difference, just a more solid mounting. I can check with my contact at Danger Den as see if they have any testing results for the two.
