This blocks even with the high price compares favorably with the gtz. Higher performance and better craftsmanship go a long way for blocks. Especially if the company release new mounts for the thing every once in a while.

My gtz initially leaked which really scared me because initially caused my display to go completely blue screen. Luckily after a good drying, everything works 4 months later. However to stop the gtz from leaking I had to put a ridiculous amount of pressure in the screws that hold the thing together. Enough that I began to strip the screws which is completely ridiculous.

Thats a nice block Zlojack. It looks really well made.

Seem to be nice blocks but they may have a tough time in an already saturated H20 market.. Prices seem about on par, if NCIX sold their stuff people may buy it.

I'm coming pretty close to considering one these guys, actually. Some testing threads that I've seen, they seem pretty positive, and for whatever reason, my GTZ just doesn't seem to be giving 100%. And if you skip the shiny, these is a hell of a lot cheaper than Koolance's CPU-350 block.

Yeah, this is the block Langer is using in his build, I think, albeit a customized version. They're really nice, just no LGA771 mounting brackets. Then again, even if they had them I probably wouldn't want to spend twice the amount for blocks over Fuzions.
