Aqua-Pcs Flow Performance CPU Block
Ok let's take a look inside the Flow Performance block's packaging to see what's included.
The tissue paper and bubble wrap that the blocks came shipped in should provide ample protection.
Included in the Flow's packaging are:
* 4 x mounting bolts complete with nylon washers, tension springs and tension nut.
* 1 x Flow Performance CPU Block
* 1 x universal adaptor plate.
Everything is included in order to get your CPU water-cooling well under way. Although there weren't any barbs included in the packaging, the retail version should with come barbs. At Aqua-Pc's website you should be able to choose between 1/2", 3/8", 10/8mm compression or 10mm push fit connectors.
Let's have a little bit of a closer look at the review specimen shall we...
A Closer Look
The Flow Performance block feels solid, but yet is considerably lighter thanks to the Acrylic top. The block also comes well lapped. For those of you who love the 'bling', the Flow Performance block has a provision for inserting an UV LED into the top...Mmm gotta love UV.
I must confess that I have really fallen for the silver version of this block.
The Universal hold-down plate is an ever-increasing feature that we are seeing manufacturers include in an effort to provide compatibility and longevity for those on older sockets. Whilst it certainly serves a purpose, you would no-doubt agree that the increased size of the plate may cause issues; especially on newer motherboards where the passive cooling solutions of ASUS and Gigabyte are bordering 'over the top'. However, I am happy to report that this didn't cause any problems when it came to testing the block.
