Keep it clean and the only part you would ever need to service is the oring. That can be done for about 10p.

I guess once you learn water cooling taking apart a block is the least of your worries tbh.

I flush and clean once a year.

More than enough.

The only things that will fail eventually are the rubber parts, as as I say they are all easily replaced.

IDK if this precedent is going to be set soon because of copper prices but seriously 200 for a block. lmfao. Bitspower do a full sodding distro plate (huge) with pump mount for $250 US ffs.

I just bought a perfectly lovely TR block for thirty five pounds delivered.

I don't care if I would save 5c, I'd rather save 165.

Recently I needed a GPU block. I find one on OCUK for 125 (EK). That is on sale. They are usually about 180. Nearly bought it, but info on their site was cloudy. I then find out I need a stock 2080 block and got a Barrow for 80. From the UK, I could have saved 25 on that but didn't want to wait 40 days (shipping is screwed ATM).

But yeah, I just don't understand why they are pricing stuff like that. Not unless as I said copper is about to become worth as much as silver :confused:

Bought me an American CPU block recently a while back, just for giggles, along with some new TridentZ Neo RGB ram for my 2nd rig. The flow rate through this sucker is unreal!

The black aluminum matches the HeatKiller GPU back plate perfectly. And for the RGB haters, no lights at all. :D

A Frankenstein's mess of fittings from Darkside, Bitspower, and EK all in one shot, LOL!

This flow rate used to read around 6LPM with a HeatKiller IV AM4 block. Now it's reading almost 9LPM. No idea if the numbers are accurate, but I have 4 of these Barrow flow meters, and I've never seen one read this high in a loop, ever.

Under full load, I haven't exceeded 60C for my 3900X 12 core. Along with the 2080ti that tops out at 35C even with +250 core / + 750 memory OC, this loop performs exceedingly well!

How long does the average block last?

As long as you dont use mayhem aurora, should work indefinately provided you dont upgrade to a new cpu where the block attachment no longer fits. GPUs, same reason although rarely do GPU blocks transition over to the next gen.

Almost all cpu blocks going back to p67 are compatible with Intel.


And heatkiller have been proven to be the most least restrictive blocks on the market allowing you to run your D5 pump even slower yet maintain the 1GPM recommended flow.

But how the hell is your 2080ti only 35C under full load? are you running a 60hz 1080p montitor? :O
Mine peaks at 51C and that is with 3 x 480 rads with fans running at 45% PWM. Then again. im running a 1440p ultra wide screen @ 100hz.

Slide cover replacement kit for the Beyerdynamic 770 that keeps the headphones attached to the head band, Both of the stock ones on my 770 have become loose and very brittle over the last year, Found a guy that 3D prints them out of material a lot stronger than Beyerdynamics brittle plastic, 14 and free postage, Big spender :D

No idea why beyer changed the slider cover design. I've got a "vintage" pair of 770's from the early 2000's that still have the originals with no signs of deterioration unlike all the newer ones I've seen in work that crack.

The original plastic was sturdy, The newer slide covers they use are made from cheap Chinesium and cost maybe 50% less according to the guy I got my new covers from, Companies now don't care about quality, They want profit on top of profit.

I want to know too since my Overkill loop cant even get there. Im living in Norway with -10 outside and the pc next to the window yet I cant drop it that low.
