Default HWC, do you have an Apogee GTZ yet?

Or if you don't, is it in the works?

For some reason I feel SLIGHTLY more comfortable with temperatures from you guys as opposed to Swiftech.

The GTZ looks promising, and I'm a fan of both Swiftech's products and their forum presence. I'm thinking really hard about getting one myself to replace my Fuzion V1, but frankly my temps aren't my limiting factor at the moment. If I build a Bloomfield rig, maybe then.

It's actually me who used to do the water cooling reviews here. They offered me one, but I just don't have the time for it.

Sorry guys :(

Too bad Linus couldn't come on over to HWC, it'd be EPIC!

If Linus had some spare time like he did back then, it would be great but we lost him a little while ago. Too much work now he says.....pffft.

Basically, water cooling has gone as far as it ever will. Many water cooling enthusiasts have tinkered with several designs and only managed to drop a degree or two from current blocks. Water cooling hit a wall, next step, phase.
