    Nice round up Deton EK always makes some stellar looking gear, but I have to tip my hat to XSPC pretty impressive cooling there.

    Yup...smart buy is XSPC but for exotic and durable I would go with Koolance. But I wish XSPC figures out the way how to plate the copper base without a significant increase in cost because bare copper eventually will oxidize. Actually, the Danger Den block is already shows some sign of oxidize after few runs of the test but XSPC seems hold up well.

    smduff; I know you're EK fan but they need to change some of dated design. For example, I find most of their full cover GPU blocks are very PITA with the seal ring because the groove is slightly wider than the thickness of the ring. Therefore, the seal ring is very easy to pop out the groove.

    Second, loose plastic spacers gotta go, time consuming and messy to use thermal paste as adhesive to hold them in place. Nowadays, most blocks has build-in standoffs. Common EK, we know you want to be different, to be original but it's time to make us feel less pain to assembly your block.

    You didn't read the review from start didn't you?

    Why don't you tell us your results since you own the blocks. Swiftech makes Hydro block exclusive for EVGA.
    If the Hydro block design based on pin-matrix then it's probably out perform all the blocks here.

    With that said, the question then becomes: which GPU water block? In order to answer that critical question, today we’ve got a GPU water block roundup for the GTX 590 to examine products from some of the top manufacturers to try to determine just that. And for the record, before we hear any complaints that we didn’t include Block X or Block Y, we’ll address that right off the bat by saying that there are reasonable limits as to what products can be procured and tested in a certain timeframe. Further, the GTX 590 is a very expensive, very specialized graphics card; not just any company makes a water block that fits it. So we've made every attempt to include the major manufacturers that do have products now available.

    I'm currently away from my home, and my setup contains one loop that cools dual 590 and cpu, which is not 'clean test' like this review does. that's the point...

    do you have a rough numbers?

    When I did the 5870 blocks roundup, the Komodo out perform all the blocks but it's very restricted. So, if they Hydro uses pin-matrix version 1 design then it's damp, damp restrictive. I hope you have very strong pump.

    Default Re: GeForce GTX 590 Water Block Roundup

    Can personally vouch for the Razor blocks. When in Sli, both cards got up to 85 degrees and fans screamed like hell, but now both run no higher than 40degrees. When looking at blocks, the guide for the EK block put me off, due to the stand offs, and having to cut the pads, so yes. Fully agree with the review.
    PS, my two cards are zotac and gigabyte, and neither allows voltage adjustment in afterburner, and my scores drop when clocking past 670mhz(overload protection?). Am i doing something wrong?
    Great review.
    Thanks

    No you didn't do anything wrong and yes it is OC thermal protection, you need to disable it if you want to push it. But I advise you not to do it because I hate to see your $700 cards flame in smoke. Also MSI AfterBurn doesn't support voltage tweak I think because it didn't work for Asus card either., without voltage tweak you won't be able to reach 700Mhz. This why I love Asus cards, you can push its limit.

    I was surprised with the Razor performs because of its micro fins, they are little thicker than EK and Koolance blocks.

    The one in the review is the old electrolyte plating. I checked for flaws but there were none. The new technique they use would be electroless method which they use special chemicals to do the plating instead to battery current.

    Deton, it is times like these that I really feel like using my own money to put a german sample in your hands. (And I don't mean getting frisky with David Hasselhoff.)

    Of these four blocks, I agree 100% with XSPC's product. Great results at a great price. And XSPC hasn't given me a single reason to hate them. The good guy wins this round. Thanks for the research!
