It was recently on the front page and it looks to be a small bit better than the Swiftech.

Just wondering why nobody's noticed this nice 2 barb block other than to knock it when it first came out as a rip off of LRWW when it is clearly not.

Well for me, and others I am guessing, it is more of a waiting for the d-tek white water to come out, rather than talk about a new block which doesn't seem to work as well. JMO

Can you post a link to the quote of the person knocking it????

I just did a search and found just a little bit of bad talk about it. Perhaps it was at pro-cooling that I saw the really bad remarks.

Anyway, aside from the Morphling block, this is now at the top of a very short list for me. I really don't like 3 barbs or I'd get a Dtek WW.

I'm in the process of making a cheapo block anyway. We'll see how it performs.

If you don't know about this link...nice link for designing water blocks...

How To Design A Water Block

"The CAD drawings are available to download for all people who want to make their own. They’re exported to IGES which should work with most equipment."

Mine is a SUPER simple design. Basically It's a 3 layer block. The base will have some grooves carved out parallel to the water path with a dremel. The middle layer is just to seperate the top plate from the bottom and create a simple water path. The top plate mearly seals the unit and has the barbs.

Basically water goes in NEAR the center and out about 1.25" away. I'm using a tiny seperation plate so that it will be restrictive and increase the water velocity.

Anyway, it's just something to use till I buy a commercial block.
