Default Custom Stinger V8 Waterblock?

I am wondering where you can order this from and how much it is. I went to the site ( http://www.stingerwaterblocks.mysite.com/index.html ) and all seen was is descriptions of various water blocks.

I've never seen them for sale anywhere. As I understand it, the guy who makes them does them custom, and you have to contact with him directly. Bit of a waiting line too, if I'm not mistaken. VERY rarely, you'll see them floating around EBay, but don't expect one to be cheap.

Yup it sure is
It looks even better in person

And its a chunk of copper that is mad heavy.
But all that copper and customization comes with a price.

I remember contacting him about his 400+W peltier block sometime back and balking at the price (And this is from a person who owns more than 10 CPU water blocks, 5 pumps and 8 radiators).

LoL yup, but that pelt block is a bit more than mine i believe.
But you cant blame him since its custom, he hand mills them and takes a long time.
Well its like buying a piece of art :)
Thats how i look at it.

Mass produced waterblock have their great price due to,mass production lol.
Im planning to get that new Enzotech block, looks great and seems to perform well, but thats still under testing.
Ive got 5 CPU block,4 pumps and 6 radiatiors myself
Selling my 480GTX on ebay now though, its just too big to fit anywhere! and now that i have my Mountain mod case, it surely wont fit anywhere in there LoL

I Wub my Cather G5, in fact I almost bought a 2nd one for the heck of it, but the seller was scared because I'm Canadian :rolleyes:

Can't wait till the day (who knows when, maybe never) when he finally rolls out the G7, I will run to jump into line to buy it at an outrageous price :P

V8 with Polycarbonate mount is $79.00 US and the all metal Polished Brass version is $170.
I am going to guess shipping at about $10 to $12. Both blocks perform the same. The brass version is a showpiece.
