Ok the thing is some people would give AMD a pass on that and moan about Nvidia doing it.

yep its the same principle. Imagine they started asking for a license for cards 2 years or older. I guarantee they would end up in court. But it seems since watercooling is a niche market, it will go ignored.

Nope. Aquacomputer lost a customer here. And I think they will lose many more. How can they expect us to pay a yearly fee to keep using the aquaaero 6XT for example when they haven't produced any new models? How is that justified "lets just update our software and charge them anyway. We dont need a 2018 model for them"

I looked at the slide, and seen 6 Pro owns can have the free upgrade to 2017. So I installed it and it would not work. Went back to look, there is a small note, only for people that have run it for 90 days or less. The XT model gets a no run time limit upgrade to 2017.
