I'd grab one in a second if they had them available for their older blocks.

This is neat, hopefullly XSPC releases their own version of this.

Cool!!! So this is specifically for running without the "lid"? I thought folks weren't actually running naked, I was under the impression that they were still putting the lid back in place only without the factory goop that wasn't providing a good thermal transfer.

They do. But some people would run naked if they could. The problem is that stock mounting just won't work. You'd run a high risk of crushing the die if your guess work of tightening the block. At least prevents me from doing it.

What EK should do is also sell a shim for the die.

yep there should be some kind of gasket surrounding the die.

I am very proud of EK or releasing such a product, it takes huge balls

It seems you have to remove the socket clamp? That doesn't really make sense, I'm sure a water block could be built to take up the space that the IHS did....

Not sure what their reasoning is for the way they made it, but good on them for making such a low volume enthusiast part.
