I agree. IC7 is pretty much the best out there.

Take MX-3. You don't need Nanoxia, Liquid Pro, IC7, Indigo extreme unless you're a hardcore OC-er and every C matters for a couple of MHz's more.

IC24 is a little less than 4 times the size (the container) of IC7.
IC7 > all
(Personally, I'm just using all the AS5 that I've accumulated and haven't used)
