Questions and Answers:
Q: What Blocks are your choice for CPU?
A: EK

Q: GPU?
A: EK

Q: Bridges?
A: EK

Q: Memory?
A: EK

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!

Hidden away in a dark part of the Modders-Inc offices is a man, no a machine, that writes reviews so epic that they have been listed in the top ten best reads by the New York Times. Well that is what we tell him otherwise we have no idea what would happen if he knew the truth.
