Nice design, An AIO or waterblock are pretty much mandatory to get the most out of Vega.

Nice. This makes me want to consider aluminum for my new loop. I can get a £20 360mm rad on ebay and grab the blocks and fittings from EK for a fairly cheap solution. It'd look great too. Hmmm...

Gotta admit that is pretty sexy. Glad they are moving away from flat with circles, it's getting kinda old.

Also, for those that may not know. I would expect to see the amount of alu WC parts increasing. The price of copper is at an all time high, so yeah I would expect to see more alu gear.

If he buys the kit he won't have to worry.


That gpu block looks really nice. I've been tempted to get the GTX version. Just not sure if it's worth it in my tiny ITX build

Yes. Sorry. Should've mentioned that the ebay 320mm rads would be aluminum also (certainly cannot get copper ones that cheap). I already have a reservoir and a line on a ceramic pump so as long as buy the blocks and fittings from EK it should be good together.
