There's a review by Bill Adams of overclockers.com of the LRWW (Little River White Water) waterblock, the block before the Cascade. The link is to a local copy on Cathar's (the maker of the LRWW and Cascade waterblocks) website but you can obviously also find it at overclockers.com. I am a little suprised that you chose a DD product over an Aussie product, mostly due to the fact that the AusPost prices for getting stuff to/from the USA scares the crap out of me. I'll admit that I'm biased as I own a LRWW waterblock and have learnt heaps from watercooling and enjoyed the silence that comes with it from that waterblock (and Cathar himself, mind you). However, you certainly make a valid point about the temperatures and I certainly admit that getting a solid silver waterblock can tend to ruin your budget (especially if you are a struggling student like myself). On the flip side of that, do remember that your local Australian producers do a bang-up job of making stuff! Buy AustralianTM! (cue green tag fluttering down and yellow stick figure kangaroo tag.... christ how long ago was that ad campaign!). I am looking forward to how you do your watercooling as I have had great difficulty in getting rid of the mess of tubing that lives in my pc. The closest that I believe that a lot of case modders have come (in this country at the least) to achieving as minimal watercooling tubing visible as possible was the Atomic Heavy Water project (suprising how the magazine actually has some semi-decent mods and the website is still so poor - /cue plug for OCAU!). Well, make us proud my northern cousin (who I expect is probably an awful lot warmer than us in the south are!). Aha! Not visible! ..... /gears start ticking over in head Cheers, mence.
