    Why doesn't Intel just start working with cpu cooling manufactures to integrate their chips into these blocks as an option? Obviously people want the best cooling solution. Most people wouldn't attempt this method on their own given the deliding process. Mind you, given how sloppy Linus pulled it off, gives a little reassurance for others to try it lol.

    Linus - Dont waste time draining loops... proceeds to pour water all over the mobo... thus wasting even more time. I guess Linus is lucky that he runs his own company because he would be unemployable anywhere else.

    Yeah but. It was so easy to get the block on. And they had it off already the second time. Why didn't they just connect the loop to the block first?

      I guess that if a pipe disconnects and spills water while you're putting the block on the bare die cpu, then you're even more in trouble...
