Best bung on a buck is Supreme LT. Price of GTZ with performance just under K350 without restriction. You can not beat this.

...Or you can try to get Heat Killer from USA seller. I'm standing in line, but manufacturer backlogged for 3-4 months...

P.S. I have Supreme (original) Acetal from my blocks round up test. E-mail me if interested. Looks drop dead gorgeous.

If you have a GTZ already, I wouldn't waste money on another block. I have yet to see a well-organized review that puts the gap between the various top-tier waterblocks at more than a couple of degrees.

Is the backlog for the HK's that bad? Damn, I was just casually browsing Sidewinder about half a month ago, and saw the Cu version in stock, so I ordered it, and it was shipped without any trouble.

True. But 2 degrees here, other two there ... it adds up. My personal quest is for silence, so I have to have the best blocks and bigger rads to get to lowest rpms ...

Sidewinder the only dealer at the moment. They don't sign new partners as they can't make enough for all...

Don't get me wrong, I WANT those two degrees. I'll take one degree, in fact. But that's really not everyone's approach, and he said that he already had the GTZ block.
