BLAST FLOW Siberian Rev2 Modular VGA WaterBlock
So how well did the BLASTFLOW Siberian Modular VGA Waterblock perform in today's review?
There is no doubt that the Siberian is positively the sexiest and most drool-worthy block currently available, in my opinion. The block has looks by the shed-load and would certainly compliment any high-end water-cooled rig. The overall finish of the waterblock is excellent even though my sample arrived with a few scratches.
Cooling performance of the BLASTFLOW Siberian is very good with greater flow and less-restrictive qualities than most of the waterblocks we tested it against today. Unfortunately, I was unable to assess the Siberian with the cooling plate due to the non-existence of one for my graphics card, but I will revisit this review in the near future and add results with the cooling plate included.
Pricing for the BLASTFLOW Siberian Modular VGA Waterblock is reasonably priced with other full-cover waterblocks with the VGA-only block coming in at £59.99+VAT
and the cooling plates at £21.91+VAT
respectively. While some may baulk at the additional cost associated with the modular features of the BLASTFLOW Siberian, in the long run, the cost will be offset by the fact that you save money by not having to upgrade with every new graphics card release. Or alternatively, you can just run with the VGA block only. The BLASTFLOW Siberian is available throughout Europe and the USA with Aqua-PC's
being the respective resellers and distributors.

- Nothing to report
