Questions and Answers:
Q: What Blocks are your choice for CPU?
A:  I’ve been in this world for a very little time, so all i know is EK stuff it seems like a good brand but they need to tweak the customer service

Q: GPU?
A: EK has the only water block available for my GPU ( GTX 680 Direct CUII  ), so no choice there I guess.

Q: Bridges?
A:     Never used one

Q: Memory?
A:     Never used one

Q: Reason for your choice?
A:     Well all the parts came in a kit from EK and it had a reasonable price tag, so I think is a combination of price/performance/looks

Q: Have you MOD any blocks?
A: No, but I’m planning to mod my new plexi top for the EK Supreme water block with some LEDs that match my color scheme

Q: Any BAD experiences with blocks? what and brand?
A:The top on the EK Supreme Cracked but a lot of people say it was because I over tightened the fittings, I hand tightened everything so who knows, may be I’m the hulk and I don’t know it yet ha ha ha.

Q: If you could suggest a MOD the companies could include in the OEM product what would it be?
A: Definitely RGB lightning
A: Carbon fiber options

I’m too shy to jump on that field yet
Summary and word from Modder/builder:

Well as I said, I’m not the best Modder/Builder out there, but I can say that the first time you water-cool something is definitely the best one, because you have the thrill of something that you haven’t done before,  and for me, water-cooling my pc broke all my expectations because it yielded better results than I expected, and now i see how could I water-cool everything to improve temps and performance

Please share your current buildlog link or favorite

I do have a build log but is not published on any forum because I see every build log and they are better than mine, in every way, so I don’t consider the need for a build with an out of the box water-cooling kit to be posted on a modders forum.

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.
