    Hi,
    Price doesn't and is way off for temps.
    Optimus foundation is still 120.us and also 1c cooler than ek top dog mag nickle at around 300.us++
    SigV2 is still 180.us 3c cooler.
    So yeah unless one just loves to give money to ek optimus is the clear overall winner price and performance.

    Hi,
    Here's the foundation 1c cooler at 4.8 and the ek top dog with polished copper cold plate
    Yes this one is very close performance but again price is a joke comparison 120.00 verses 300.00

    Hi,
    Used a different application method for applying thermal paste worked pretty good thermal grizzly hydronaut is growing on me
    Applies a thin coat on the chip and the cold plate on both these runs
    Foundation now has sigV2 temperatures lol and clobbered acetal copper at 4.8 by 4c not bad for a 120.us water block I'd say !

    Interestingly enough R20 was dead even at 4.9 but R15 extreme foundation by 2c cooler but minimum temp was 2c warmer :/

    What did you polish with? I received the EK Velocity Plexi today. Looks nice. Will install soon...

    Hi,
    Got some stuff at auto zone called scratch out

    lol yeah the logo button doesn't stay on very good anyway after removing ke - ek doesn't matter I just call it costs twice as much for less performance as is

    Hi,
    Looks can be deceiving
    Looking cool and cooling a cpu/... are two different things
    Thermally velocity is low on the list even though this list is a weird way to evaluate thermal efficiency by using averages seeing if you get a better idle temp it messes up everything
    Max temps are best for judging which blocks cool best idle is silly to go by that in anyway.
