    Wow
    It's looking good, even better than the GT version. Hopefully, there are some review for this block. Wondering if this block can handle Intel quad core chips?

    that does look good indeed. I wonder if the bigger o-ring trick is still possible on this? If not i'd rather have the GT as you can get up to 3c more from doing it.

    But what am i talking about, i got a fuzion :rolleyes:

    Yeah looks like a better design then the old storm. Also of note: I found from my watercooling experiments that a good amount of pressure on waterblocks is necessary for optimum cooling with some of them.

    19 pounds equal $40, for a copper top?....a whole copper block only cost $80 and the aluminum top (standard) cost $70. Both perform the same the only different is the look.

    Most people don't like aluminum & copper mixture but this one have anodized and acted platings for the inside, so it's safe.

    Yup, the copper top look meaner but can justify for the top replacement.

    Do you not think that it makes any difference with heat transfer with the copper top and bottom or is it really just for ascetics cos if it is $40 is allot of money I agree, I thought It may actually make some difference. :confused:

    The top is just for look, the bottom plate is the most important one. This plate content the matrix pins and smooth machined surface block.

    As I said, if you're already have the standard one (like me) then you don't really need to upgrade to the copper top (replacing it) and if you're first start out buying it, and you want the copper look then get it. Because it cost only $10 more than the aluminum one.

    I really like the copper top but I'm not going to waste $40 for just a look. My comp have a window panel and it sits on the floor in the corner and I'm hardly look at the inside (out of sight), unless I do some work on it.

    However, I'm willing to trade off $40 for the performance though.
