Damn that a nice block.

Has the look of a custom block.

Never heard of them either, but they do have a decent selection.

Bad timing to be introducing a $100+ CDN block in N. America...

I wish them luck.

Watercooling people pay for looks though

People pay like $10-15 for Bitspower fitttings, so I don't see why they wouldn't spend $90-100 on a block...

I got one!

According to some tests done (albeit at low flow) so far, they are the winner over a whole bunch of blocks tested. I'm waiting for some more testing at higher flow rates to be done by mcoffey at RealRedRaider.com

Some (not so great) pics of mine!

It's just the way I was holding the camera, probably. Those are machining marks on the base. I tested it on a glass tabletop and it has a very, very, very slight bow (nothing compared to the EK Supreme)
