Well, that just cemented my NB water block purchase.

I see you have DD and ST listed jakUp, which do you use, and why?

Isn't the swifttech the better block, I mean, it basicly has zero restriction and a better top.(booh@plexi)

Many say its a better block, but the plastic barbs suck and it already leaked once. The comparisions show it half a degree within the DD.

That's not surprising considering that the mcw30 basicly is a flat piece of copper with a delrin/acetal top, the basic design of the maze4 should be pretty ok too, but it is hard to beat the non-existing flowresistance of a flat piece of copper aka mcw30.

Can you get the maze4 with a copper/brass top? I'm not really a fan of plexitops, as they will crack eventually.

They're dealing with modded P5W DH Deluxes I believe.

That is one nice thing about the P5B Deluxe, folks are getting a 500-517 FSB with only 1.55v MCH. Naturally there are folks @XS modding the P5B deluxe to get a 550FSB:

If I get close to 4.0GHz with my inc P5B D I will definitely improve my cooling from air and HQ heatsinks.
