Default New Block coming... Apogee GTZ

Cooling-Masters (In French, although many members here won't mind)

It's preliminary, and the testing was done by the manufacturer, but it definitely sounds promising.

Pressure drop appears to be only marginally worse than the old GTX, and not as bad as the EK Supreme (which uses the same micro-channel approach). People wanting to use compression fittings shouldn't have any trouble, even with the large 1/2"x3/4" fittings. Temperatures are great, although the difference between it and the other heavy hitters is arguably within statistical margins of error. No aluminum (anodized or otherwise) in contact with coolant.

And of course, looks like NCIX intends to stock it at some point, too.
