    Nice looking block, hardware is average definitely think it could improve, but liking the block so far. Nice work.

    Still working on my new 3930K overclock, but I figured I'd share some quick and dirty stand alone results. This is with a rather light 35-40lb mounting force (lighter weight springs than provided) that I've been tinkering with as a new test standard (fixed mounting pressure).

    Thats a pretty respectable result, especially given the flow overhead available for custom plates.

    Easily the most competitive homemade block ive seen in the last 10 years. Great work .

    Five mounts done,



    Now for testing/retesting of other blocks for some comparative data next.

    The new 3930K is up and running and cranking out the heat...
    Pretty happy about the higher heat load and more consistent mounts too.

    No, no problems although with Socket 2011..you don't need/use any sort of back-plate since it's already built in. I am also using a standardized set of springs/washers/thumb-nuts so I can better measure mounting pressure (Approximately 35-40lbs) consistently between blocks. I'm using XSPC Raystorm M4 studs, One large metal washer, one small M4 washer, one small black nylon washer, one DD M6 spring (approx 7-8lbs fully compressed), and one DD M6 Brass M4 oversized thumbnut.

    The 5Noz came with M4 screws, 20lb springs, and a standard M4 nut. The springs are a bit too strong to fully compress and the standard M4 nuts would require a deep 7mm socket. I prefer using a lighter spring myself to have measurable pressure. I also believe the new 5Noz package comes with large thumb-nuts.

    So...no problems, but I am using 2011 which doesn't need a back-plate and I am using my own "Standardized Test" hardware so I can better evaluate performance between blocks and it's faster/easier for me not having to mess around with motherboard removal, etc..

    I went the extra step in installing and evaluating "As Shipped" hardware with 1155, but after killing my motherboard and seeing how 2011 doesn't need a backplate, I'm being a bit more conservative/lazy and testing the blocks only this next round using a fixed set of hardware...

    Ah. Thanks for clarifying. So curious, if a backplate of another block has M4 threads, can we use that if we think that it's a better backplate?

    Sure, as long as the screws or studs have deep enough threads for tightening it down..no problem.

    The black thumb nuts look like they are being taken from tooth paste tube.
    When is the full interior to be visible to public eyes? I am more interested in that as @ first glance on Martin chart it looks a lot like old Supreme with ancient mounting kit.

    Tackleberry - old chart was on a 2600k, this is a 3930k. Temps look average to good, flow looks excellent.

    Thanks Martin. Now I need to test this on a 2600K to see how it handles the ihs of the smaller die

    Nice review, thanks Martin!

    Impressive performance and a new block at that. I guess you have to buy one to see the jet nozzle

    Now if IVY would hurry up and get here so I have something new to watercool.

    Dude, the one with the black cap is the tube of shoe polish, white cap is tooth paste. Which have you been using?
    You see what you did there? You got between me and the coffee, now this creates a SITUATION!

    Are there any issues (performance or otherwise) with running the stock socket 2011 backplate?

    Actually they all look like on AMD but the Heatkiller 3.0 mount. Manufacturer after manufacturer keep making AMD blocks that mount sideways.

    Nice review from Martin and wonderful to see it perform for independent testers as good as claimed .
    Though imho there was not much need to hide that much nozzle system, as probably any competitor vendor if interested in can buy block itself and study with care locally in person, not from public reviews, but those said reviews because of that suffer a little bit by lacking few interesting photos/details for readers
