Modders Choice – Water Cooling Blocks

WHAT IS the MODDERS-Choice for Computer Cooling water Blocks?

This being the first installment in the MODDERS-Choice Series let me explain how it works.
1. This is your soapbox not mine, not the markets, not the site owners, it’s yours.
2. MODDERS and Builders from Case Modders Face Book Group vote in a POLL.
3. Sometimes I’ll rotate Q&A forms around for Choices, sometimes we’ll all participate in the thread.
4. I’ll work hard to sponsor giveaways with each topic, hopefully the actual MODDERS-Choice item when I can and you only need to LIKE our Page in FB and comment here in each article to enter. https://www.facebook.com/ModdersInc.
5. If you didn’t get in the article, we’ll have a formatted response you can add in the comments, increasing the content, information and knowledge shared with the brotherhood of MODDERS and Builders.
6. This is not a “REVIEW” so not too technical, however the Choice product/company and/or Choice item will get a spotlight and in some cases so will the sponsor/s of any giveaways.
Looking forward for MODDERS-Choice is:
~ Lighting, sponsored by ICE MODS https://www.facebook.com/mundivalur 60cm LED strip with Remote Controller
~ Sleeving, sponsored by Lutro0 Customs https://www.facebook.com/Lutro0Customs 1 full Sleeving Package, Modders Choice of Sleeve, Color, Pins, Connectors, Wire and Heatshrink, I’ll even throw in a heatgun myself
