BranHanna: Yeah, watercooling can be a PITA if you're a constant upgrader like me. Each time you tear down the loop, you risk more headaches. I have the added complication of a honking TEC cooler on my loop now too that's not making things any easier.

I wont buy anything from swiftech again after my incident with a GTZ block. Bought it brand new (1156 was still very new) and wanted proper mounting brackets for 1156. Swiftech had them, but of course wouldnt give me one for free, wouldnt sell me one because im canadian, and apparently only sent 3 worldwide. Aside from the pump and resevoir im using, ive found it all to be substandard overpriced crap.

After reading this thread the idea of throwing a full coverage block on my 5870 is making reconsider lol.
