I need a cpu water block that can withstand temperatures of at least –34f or colder.
What is the best cpu block for the price? Preferable for both Intel and AMD cpus.

As far as I know, it shouldn't really matter, but I'd go with something like the HK 3.0 or something that's all metal.

Just taking a stab at this, but it matters if it has an acetal or plastic top as it could be prone to cracking, so I agree something all metal would be best, but someone please correct me if I am wrong.

-34f? You won't find it in watercooling methinks. But you can get that low temps with phase change. Look in the extreme cooling subforum here.

Hopefully the unit im gonna build will get that cold!!!!

Water Cooling Guide for Beginners. Only seven pages and will tell you most of what you need to know to get started.

As for the OP, if you can do this, the HK 3.0 copper is probably your best bet. What do you plan on using to get a loop down that low?
