Any time hehe. These devices always intrigued me, but I like the flexibility of custom watercooling, just gives it the edge over the competition.

Good review, now I hope someone will become interested enough to take mine off my hands:). Watercooling bit me and while the Elite was nice, WCing is too much sexy for me to say no.

A note: I always got better temps with the thermal paste that came on the block in the box, my temps were higher with MX-2, may be a bad application, not quite sure.

The thermal interface material we provide is Artic Silver Ceramique. It seems sometimes they are a little over zealous w/ the application though. I've requested that we reduce the amount applied.

Sold! Saved 100 going through Price Compare too.

I didnít realize how that worked till now, if you just browse to ncix they
give a price of 449, but going through Price compare you get some kinda coupon,
and its only 349. not bad....

Insomniac, as requested in other forums. Please contact me directly so we can help you with your temps. My email is barry.reicker@coolitsystems.com and my phone number is 1-866-621-2665 x238. I've seen you on our forums and on NCIX but to the best of my knowledge have never spoken to you directly, I think we can get better temps for you than that so please contact me.

Regards,

Barry

Thanks for the very in-depth review. Based on your review, I just ordered one of these from Xoxide and hopefully, it will arrive in time to install it over the weekend.
I'm hoping to overclock my 9650 past 4GHz and I think I just might be abld to get there with this unit.
