Hi,And I can personally vouch for the Foundation block. The 3070 Ti forced me back to the C14S or else I would still be using it. But, to be honest I don't miss it that much at 142W, it is a big difference thermally but you know how these CPUs are, no real diff
The TechN is as good if not better.
TechN if you're in the EU is a good option
They did have some wonky cold plate milling quality issues "cooling fins were crooked as hell" in the beginning though not sure that was fixed or not they said they weren't binning bad cold plates because it would add to costs I had some image samples but they are on a different machine.
Optimus always has good quality and frankly these two blocks cost the same amount in the US it's a go to if in stock.
Here's a sample
By the way I would of gotten a techn intel copper if they had one but no way a nickel plated one with that type of milling.
