    Ugly as hell. I'm sorry but if i'd spent that much on the mobo, the last thing i'd want to do is take off the armour.. Let alone cover it in a giant square! Watercooling looks better IMO when it's got lots going on.

    Looks pretty strange... Could have some modding potential though and I do appreciate waterblock manufacturers putting out more motherboard waterblocks...

    Always amuses me the now fairly ubiquitous bs premium feature of plating mobos in 'armour' as a way to justify huge mark ups.

    I might be reluctant to remove the armour too, particularly if the board was then less likely to turn a crossbow bolt, withstand Valarian steel or lessen its chances of winning the Hand's Tourney.... :D

    Knowing Bitspower, it'll cost almost as much as the board.

    ...and it looks nasty.

    Now THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how you do a full-cover waterblock.

    So glad I didn't follow that link before reading on. I almost visited it without knowing you were directing it at an entirely differing gender !

    Saved in the nick of time ;)

    I was addressing those partaking in the discussion at the time. Regrettably you had not joined in yet (which no doubt accounts for the lacklustre discourse hitherto). But now you have, good manners behove it to acknowledge the fact with a belated edit of my post. :)
