Aqua-Pcs Flow Performance CPU Block


So how well did the Aqua-Pcs Flow Performance Block perform in todays review?
The Flow Performance Block is certainly a water block that is aimed towards the lovers of bling, and the Acrylic top certainly would look very good under a UV black light with reactive coolant. The block is well constructed and includes everything that you should need to get your CPU 'under water'.
As far as cooling performance is concerned, the Flow Performance Block is around the average. Whilst it managed to keep my Q6600 processor acceptably cool, it was soundly beaten by the XSPC X20 Delta. The increased pin count on the bottom of the Delta's Copper base would no doubt have been a significant  factor in the results we saw today.
Pricing for the Aqua-Pcs Flow Performance CPU Block is very competitive and comes in at a paltry £21.70 (Excluding VAT), which is a couple of £'s cheaper than the XSPC X20 Delta.
All things considered, the Aqua-Pcs Flow Performance CPU Block would make an acceptable purchase for those new to water-cooling or those not looking for the best performing block available. The Flow Performance Block would perhaps be better placed on the latest dual-core processors, but it does give reasonable quad-core performance.
The Good

The Mediocre
