The concept of a modular block means it's also resellable - so you're
more likely to invest in it in the first place, even if you chose not to
continue with watercooling at your next upgrade cycle. Your investor can
then just grab a base plate for a little cost and the whole process
keeps on rolling. The only worry is corrosion and block lifetime, but a
conscientious watercooler will have taken measures to prevent this.
With that said, the block’s performance speaks volumes for how much
promise it shows and with a few refinements this block goes from being
one with promise to one that outright delivers. We’ll be having another
closer look at the block again in a week or so, as we’ve got a
custom-built overclocked and airbrushed Vadim PC to marvel at while we
put it through a grilling in /bit-tech/ labs.
