Default best 2011 waterblock?

Recently purchased a good used 2011 setup just wondering which block is the good? Might throw a mobo block at it too if I can find a deal.

The difference between water blocks is negligible. Buy whatever your like aesthetically or what is cheapest.

Agreed with lowfat most perform within a few (1-2)*C of eachother.

Usually people buy for looks or brand loyalty.

I like to use Dazmode for my watercooling purchases.

They mostly stock EK now after problems with alot of other brand quality issues over the past.

They have their own Version / line also and its mostly rebranded EK stuff with Dazmode's own graphics on it.

You can get those versions fairly cheap and still get the Nice EK quality so thats what id recomend.

If your buying from Dazmode though try to make sure you buy all you need as their shiping is a touch expensive and its smart to combine orders with them to save on shipping.

so get everything at once that you may need {tubing - treatments - silvercoil ect).

good luck.
