    @vinman; sure does drop the temp if you replace the block, Stan (Doctor Death) did it and he said it drops 5C for him.

    @4ham; you can get a complete kit for less than $200 and still have stellar performance. To show the respect to our sponsor therefore I'm not to mention the name but you can check our review section.

    just to name a few; it's hard to tell which one is best for you, so now it's come down to its value, availability and personal aesthetics perference.

    Most the above blocks included everything but Apogee XT has 1/2" barbs but non for the others.

    Are you thinking of doing a custom setup?

    I didn't forget, I left it out on purpose because it's an old dog and it has been out for a long time, got beaten by all the above blocks and WaterCool didn't bother do nothing about it. All they did is revised its aesthetics, shame on them , it's still the most expensive block and still not compatible with 3/4" compression fitting without using 45 adaptor, damn more cost add on here. And the backplate is still not include in the package.

    The worst thing is got beat by 3C, therefore it doesn't desert my expertise recommendation

    Yes! along with a new build this weekend, and will be starting a new tread in the appropriate area real soon. going to modify the Boreas cooler with new lines and thinking of changing out the block
    that's why I asked, I have a XSPC bay rez with the 200lph pump with head delivery of 1.2m and was hoping it would handle the flow with that block or should I just leave the stock block and pump in the system.

    I don't know if it is worth it? I have the H50 push/pull and yesterday got 4.2 GHz and passed 10 passes on extreme setting of Intel Burn Test with 8 threads enabled.

    Maybe I should just use this bugger and then build a new 2600K which apparently do not need watercooling for extreme overclocking... Running now 24/7 @ 4.1 GHz

    unfortunately the 200mlp pump is not capable to handle most the above blocks due to micro pin-matrix design,they are restrictive, perhaps you may consider the EK Supreme HF or Koolance CPU-360, they have micro channels instead of pin-matrix, they are less restricted.

    for a short term then it's ok but we are talking about long term and the life of the CPU here.

    2600K may not need WC but if you shooting for highest OC then water or good air cooler will help you to achive that. This chip do get hot if you do extrem overclock, btw why is on earth you want to get 2600k chip and clock it at 4.1Ghz? If that's the case then it's better get cheaper version of SB.

    Yup, my SB build is on the query.

    No my current build I got 4.2 GHz on yesterday stable and i backed it down to run 4.1 GHz 24/7.

    The 2600K's will run at much higher clocks on air...
