Thanks bud. The Missus allowed me a little more lee-way this time Do you have a price on the G5 Frag? It's definitely an extremely well performing block, I bet the price is nice too.

Granted, it is THE most expensive waterblock money can buy, but its also the best performing and most blingy as well (SOLID silver base ftw). IIRC the G5's are between $200-300 USD.

Screw the Asspogee, the base on that thing sucks. For a bit more the MP-05 is well worth it. If you have a high pressure pump, like the Swiftech MCP655, and the high pressure nozzle kit for the MP-05 Pro, it will pretty much match the Swiftech Storm. The MP-05 Pro feeds off pressure, so with a high performance pump, the MP-05 Pro would be your best bet.

i have the Storm and i sometimes regret getting it, i wish i got the MP-05 b/c it requires it dosnt need a high pressure pump like the Storm, well i mean for best performance, b/c now i have to always have pump -> cpu block. and the MP-05 just freakin looks better

Just to add another one to the mix, the Alphacool NexXxos is a very good performing block..





Granted it's fairly restrictive, but as you can see its pretty much the best block on this graph.

Thanks for the further suggestions lads, muchly appreciated.

@ XMS I was actually looking at the NeXXos, is this reasonably priced? http://www.chilledpc.com.au/store/de...8e77d93f0013cf

Does anyone have a link to an e-tailer that stocks the MP-05, who'll ship internationally because I can't find 'em here in Aus.

Just for laughs, I was chatting with my brother-in-law today and he was telling me how difficult it was stowing the stacker case onboard the sub. He said 'do you know how hard it is fitting a square shaped object through a round hole?'. They ended up having to open the hydraulic ram doors where they load the torpedoes in, just to acomodate it rofl.

Petra's Tech Shop is willing to ship worldwide, though you have to contact them first. Run by an XS member, it's supposed to be a great shop, Petra (I think his real name is Andrew) is a nice guy. Looks like they're all out of the AX MP-05 blocks right now though... You can also get the now favorite Masterkleer 7/16" tubing from them and, if you choose to go with a fillport, they have the newer delrin made one's so you don't have to worry about corrosion at all

Thanks WC, that's twice you've assisted me. That's worthy of reppage
