My System Specs

Default anyone ever use the OCZ Hydraflow


HYDRAFLOW LIQUID CPU COOLING BLOCK HydroFlow HF-MK1 CPU Waterblock / For AMD, AM2, 775, 1366 / Core i7 Compatible




I got a few of these on back order from a supplier they have then in Fremont and they only cost $5 each and come with 4 barbs each so I bought them just for the barbs but has anyone ever used this block?
is it any good?

I've never used one but from what I recall they are an older gen block that came out around '08, by today's standard it might perform something like a Swiftech GTZ

Found this little diddy about it: OCZ Hydroflow CPU Waterblock Review

Probably around 5-8C higher temperatures compared to modern blocks. Nothing substantial.
