    for this to even be viable – everything needs to be covered in wood – not sure I am on board.

    The only way those wooden blocks would look good is if you got bamboo-sleeved PTG tubing to complement them.

    It looks really really nice, but I don't know if I would ever do a wood theme loop. I have mixed feelings on these, damn they look nice. Especially love the fittings. The new TR blocks are gorgeous.

    I'm starting to think I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't give a flying f*** about thread ripper, let alone thread ripper 2. In fact, I don't think I' take one if it was givin' to me, more "i got more cores!!!!" hype, that i dont care about.

    Talking about the EK water blocks. I would like the copper ones over the aluminum ones. I think exposed copper looks so good! I know about 10 years ago there were alot of coolers that were exposed copper with I think like a clear coat paint on them or something, but they looked so good. I also like the nickle plated stuff but as far as I can tell the nickle plating can wear down over time internally. That said both the different styles of aluminum plates here look good to me. It is a difficult call which is better. I would go for performance over looks when it comes to a budget item.

    Ek should make some digital flow and temp sensors with a display to connect it. Not interested in the new consumer stuff they offer.

    EK: Making rectangles out of different things.
    Material is cool but can we get a better design? I've seen noname brands with better waterblock designs.

    I love the wood tops, love the expansion to the FG line: Hardline fittings, the designer GPU plates (both kinds–the Aluminum colored ones are amazing), and the new velocity blocks are pretty cool. Would love to see extended coverage on how they are different and perform differently than the Supremacy blocks.

    I like the RGB shift in direction towards Addressable. RGB isn't going anywhere, IMO, and leaping to the even more customizable addressable/digital space is smart by not only EK but all the companies embracing RGB.

    I built my whole computer case out of stained cabinet grade plywood. I wish I would have known that they were planning on wood fittings and waterblocks before I fully invested in a normal metal loop :/.

    I wouldn't purchase, but I think these look pretty cool and I hope to see some builds with them.

    I would like to see this AIO on market ASAP !
    I have a weird case and i can't put a normal custom loop inside. I don't have the room to fit a pump and res combo… So if I want to switch to a custom loop this kind of loop are my only choice !

    Brown wood wouldn't be my first design choice. But quality materials, highend prints and other surface treatments are the way to go. I don't buy RGB Plastic covered kiddy action stuff. Even when, the product is the best performer.

    But wood is also kind of insulator, so some mixed feelings :/

    Pickled wood finish, please! The gray would look so good in a black build.

    aren't the contrasting temperatures of a PC going to warp the wood?

    Would be nice if the wood blocks were not lacquered so people could do custom wood burning designs or if EK would do simple burns/engravings themselves. (running electricity through wood is an easy way to create unique surface burn designs quick and cheaply)
