You can lead a horse to water... but you can't make him order the right parts?

Any idea if petra's is going to have any sort of GX2 waterblock? If they come out with a good waterblock i'll probably be going to water just because its really the only option when it comes to effectively cooling them.

Ek, danger den, and evga have all been working on them.

I think danger den has a prototype block cut at the moment. But expect mainstream availability in about 2 weeks.

See water cooling setups are loads different then pc stuff. cause there isn't really a lot of like noticeable things that differ between items. so its a new learning process for me.

Rule of thumb though, don't trust Thermaltake with cooling of any kind cause they just use cheap parts.

Theres plenty of difference. When it comes to pumps, high flowrate is better.

Water blocks, copper or silver are the only acceptable metals.

Bigger tubing fittings are better. I.e. 1/2" tubing will outperform 1/4".

When you do piece it together you must have all the same barb sizes. Mixing 3/8" and 1/2" doesn't work...
