    @Martin can you maybe go about updating this as the new GFX rev2 block recently came out?
    Just purchased it over the original, doesnt look as pleasing but looks nice none of the less.

    I don't have a V2 and I've since seem to have misplaced my MCW-60 somewhere in my parts drawers and my loop is completely changed so I have nothing to baseline from other than a V1 vs V2..

    The new block looks promising comparing pressure drop curves, but less so comparing c/w curves. Not sure I believe that though, I didn't expect much gain on my CPU V2 vs V1 per the curves published, but found more..

    Anyhow my V1 has been doing a fine job, and I don't have any reason to spend the money on a new one.

    I have a Black Ice Pro II currently, does job fine, but that looks much more worth the bucks paying for it..
    just looking for comments on it

    Looks cool, but it probably won't outpace an MCR320. A quick an easy comparison is easliy done by looking at the width, the MCR320 is oversized in width which gives it more frontal surface area.

    Magiccool 120mm width
    MCR320 = 128mm width

    8/120 = about 7% more frontal surface area which is the single most important part of cooling in radiators.

    There is no replacement for frontal surface area...that's why the PA is purposely longer than normal too.

    Glad it's helpful

    My ramsinks are epoxied on with artic adhesive, so I can only try GPU only blocks on this particular card.

    Someone provided this link where canucks did a GFX vx MCW-60 Vs DD block though. I didn't see it until after I finished my testing, but it appears they also had similar results between the two blocks:

    http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/hardw...uzion-gfx.html

    There was also this madshrimps review I had previously seen on the MCW-60 and DD:

    http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=get...59&articID=554

    I thought I saw an EK comparison somewhere too, but I can't seem to find it now. I thought it was also several degrees higher in temperature.

    Anyhow full coverage wasn't an option for me, but I probably would still go with a GPU only block because they perform better and cost less.
    I guess you will have to retest with the upcoming MCW60R3 then ;-)
