I couldn't post a news item or review, so I figured I'd post this here instead. The block got released today (10/29/12):

From Koolance

The Koolance CPU-380 sets a new standard for manufacturing quality and thermal performance. From the cold plate and flow path to the mounting hardware, every aspect of the block has been refined with unprecedented results.

It features a microfin nickel-plated copper cold plate, acetal top, and thick steel mounting bracket. Standard G 1/4 BSP threading will accept any Koolance fitting diameter up to 19mm (3/4in) OD compression style. Please select the desired fitting type for this base model (it does not include fittings).

The CPU-380I supports most boards using the following processors:

Intel socket LGA 2011
Intel socket LGA 1155/1156
Intel socket LGA 1366 (may require BLT-CPASZD12 if motherboard back plate is fixed)
Intel socket LGA 775

The CPU-380A supports most boards using the following processors:

AMD socket AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2
AMD socket G34 (with separate BLT-CPAMDG34)
AMD socket 1207(F)/C32, 939, 940 (with separate BKT-CP021K and ACC-CPU350)

Thanks Stren for the review. Used to use a Koolance 340 water block back in '08 when I first got into water cooling. It is nice to see the 380 performing so well:toast:
