I think if sswilson and Cpt Vortex also add some info it will be helpful since those 2 are basically in almost all threads in here commenting and helping.
Heh... I'll offer some suggestions if I see anything that comes to mind, but I'm by no means an expert in anything... there are others here on the forums better qualified to comment. :)

Since most newcomers to water wont necessarily know this info.

And I second the full coverage block section.

You should mention that bowing the GT nets you a few more C's.
Best bet for that would be to use a link to the price matching feature. That would keep pricing current.

While this has the potential to be an extremely useful thread, I'm not entirely sure what to think about some of the commentary. No component in a watercooling system exists in a vacuum, and just throwing out numbers (i.e. block#1 is one/three/X degrees warmer than block#2) has limited value to someone new to the sport.

Nice !

full cover block tripled...... just list them as a possibility, since they are by definition good for only one card.

For the FC Blocks, I don't have performance numbers though. How can I possibly rank them?:help: I'm thinking EK and DD are the only brands in Canada that make FC Blocks.

- they do a better job on the card they were created for
- more expensive
- dont work on other card

The FC section is good, but you should make sure you mention that it cools both the actual processor on the card as well as the RAM, VR's and any other chips that require cooling.
