That said, next build will be piece by piece rather than a kit.
Yeah what he said...lol. That's the route I went(Tt first WC) also but thanks to a carefully placed shortcut on wifes laptop I got a swiftch apex ultra kit:) last christmass and waited till I picked up two gpu blocks before I installed it. Maybe not the most extreme but I like it and it performs well. IMO I think Tt's waterblock problem(cracking) is because of the H bracket. There is nothing stopping you from overtightening it and causing too much pressure on the acrylic.
