Nice block but I can't believe that they didn't clean it out before shipping it to you, that's a good way to screw up an expensive pump getting nasty debris in it.

Looks a very nice block, shame about the shortcoming of the packaging and care taken during manufacturer

Shame about the negative points, we can actually get hold of these but sadly the bad points are putting me off

I love mine. Mine came slightly dirty as well but a few hrs in vinegar solved that . Great review XMS.

Yeah, I used Arcticlean to sort mine out - but vinegar would probably have been better.

In a way it's good to know that i'm not the only person to have a dirty MP-05 block - so now it can't be shrugged off as an isolated incident.

While the block is a good performer: they will have to improve their quality testing. I am totally unimpressed with manufacturers who let QT slip and there is simply no excuse. I don't think I would recommend people to buy this over a Swiftech Storm - as I know Swiftech's QT is at a very high standard.
