    I'm assuming you've seen the Supremecy elsewhere with that delta T? We haven't tested the Supremacy anywhere other than in this review, which is a direct comparison between it and the Bitspower block using a specific set of hardware and our specific overclock settings.

    This was the Precise mount, which is called "Supremacy precise mount", not the Supremacy CPU block :).

    This, a high-end watercooled GPU... We're only a water-cooled compact PSU away from a ludicrously tiny high-end gaming machine.

    Was there any fitting issues with the de-lidded CPU and the Bits-Power block ?

    Thinking about de-lidding mine, the only thing stopping me was having to buy a new precise mount supremacy.
    Is that not the case ...

    Thanks in advance

    Kudos to Bitspower for putting this out. As crowded as that particular board is, I wonder why someone didn't do it sooner.

    Don't forget that de-lidding doesn't refer to actually running the CPU without the heatspreader. It just means you've taken the heatspreader off and applied your own thermal paste between it and the CPU core, and replaced it, which most people find drops the temperatures significantly. The EK PreciseMount allows you to use the Supremecy waterblock without the Heatspreader - that's all - which might lower them a couple of degrees more. You can't use the Bitspower block without the heatspreader, though - it's machined to line up with the daughterboard and chipset with the heatspreader present. Once you've secured the CPU into place, it's pretty much like a normal one to be honest as the lid is firmly fixed in place.

    Thanks Antony, very helpful.

    Great review, I sooo like the look of that Bitspower block, it just looks much cleaner than what I have fitted on my Impact...I know Bitspower have been posting renders for the impact on FB. Very tempted.
