Now if only better companies than EK would put out monoblocks (Bitspower doesn't count to me, since they're crazy over-priced and ugly AF). God how I wish Watercool did more motherboard specific stuff!
Bitspower monoblocks are based on their Summit series, and they have bad performance compared to others. Watercool is awesome. I prefer it over EK every day. They had some idea of universal VRM block, but that failed. But the king of the hill is Aquacomputer. They just have some serious back order issues. It is 30+ days for their amazing GPU blocks.

If you already have C7H there is probably no need to change. What I have meant above was that if you were buying 2700X and C6H was much cheaper than C7H there was no reason not to go for it. But if you are buying everything now, even though more expensive, C8H should be a much better choice than C7H.

I have currently a 2700x and a x470 asus strix itx... I am on the fence if to buy a ATX board or a itx mobo for my possible 3900x.

Mostly will depend on price/cooling performance - if I go full custom water cooling or if I stick my Dark Rock Pro 4 on it and call it a day.
