Conclusion

The Eddie EK block has surpassed my expectations. With great looks and a full cover design cooling the memory as well, the block performs at the highest levels to match. The quality of the block is excellent and the craftsmanship is top-class.

I would not hesitate in recommending the Eddie EK GPU block to anyone currently looking to watercool their graphics card. The installation in my case was an absolute breeze and the horizontally mounted barbs make routing very easy.

With a fairly steep price of £49.99 at The Watercooling Shop, the EK block is not amazingly cheap. Is it worth the money? Yes I am pretty sure it is.

Definitely a block for the discerning enthusiast, Overclock3D gives the Eddie FC79 an Editors Choice Award.

The base looked a bit tarnished mate? Was this the camera's doing, or was the blocks base not protected with a layer of plastic?Quote

The base wasn't scratched at all, it just had some ingrained marks from milling. There were no surface scratches at all - these were just "stains"

Shiny doesn't always mean flat

EDIT: No layer of plastic: but adequate protection was given to the block Quote
