Questions and Answers:
Q: What Blocks are your choice for CPU?
Q: Reason for your choice?
A: I love the design of the blocks. I really like the clean acrylic and nickel plated style blocks to show my coolant. I like the ablitiy to show off as much of my water loop as possible. They also do quite a bit for the community on their website from the cooling configurator to the think cell. I have never had a bad product from them and will most definitely continue to use them in the future.
Q: Have you MOD any blocks?
A: I painted the mounting bracket for the EK Supremacy CPU block from black to white, and I did custom paint the EK memory monarch universal DIMMsfrom black to white, I have also made an LED harness to plug into the predrilled LED mounting holes on the EK blocks.
Q: Any BAD experiences with blocks? what and brand?
A: Nothing water block related becasue its all been EK.
Q: If you could suggest a MOD the companies could include in the OEM product what would it be?
A: I would say more companies could include OEM water blocks like eVGA does, and ASUS just jumped on with the Poseidon.
A: I would like to see more full board water block options from motherboard suppliers, and from aftermarket cooling companies as well. Full board blocks for mATX boards and what not.

I have found this to be helpful to the beginner modder. The guide to the modders toolset!
Summary and word from Modder/builder:
would I have been using a PC since as long as I can remember. My dad had a custom built PC in our house since before I was born back in 1986. I continued on tradition building my own gaming rigs throughout the years, but recently I started modding going on 8 months ago and it is quickly becoming the main goal and focal point of my life. I would love to advance from a hobby to a profession one day, but until then I am going to continue to work hard and try to inspire other modders as the ones before me have inspired me!
