    Not bias are you ALPHACOOL?

    The review IMO sucks. The charts prove nothing, the testing is rubish...so on those grounds I would ignore the Nexxos.

    Yes it is a great block but there are better examples and better blocks...namely the Swiftech Storm /Storm rev2. Which are more suited to varying pumps.

    I'm running and can highy recommend the NexXxos on the rig in my sig.

    It's a sweet block when paired with powerful pumps (like dual AQX50z's ;))

    He may be biased but the block is extremely good. About on par with the Storm tbh - though has a more focussed pump range.

    I like my Swiftech 6002, pretty sure it was under £40 (bought it a looong time ago though)

    i will be running it with an aquaextreme 50z 12v pump so would the alphacool block be a good bet, i have seen it for £24.

    :)

    I have recomended the block before, I just get annoyed about testing methods some times. I only tend to listen to reviews from Pro-cooling. ;)

    Shouldn't you include that information with any comment you might make regarding your own product?
