    These seem to have been released under the radar so to speak, I only just noticed them whilst shopping for parts:

    ZM-GWB8800 GTS
    ZM-GWB8800 ULTRA/GTX

    Retail for around £50-£60 GBP in the UK, they use the typical zalman small bore sizes.

    [EDIT] These are aluminium blocks by the way.

    its about time. i thought it'd be out a long time ago. still, i won't upgrade since the blocks i have right now are good enough.

    ive got a copper cpu block so prob not a good idea for me to get aluminium gpu one, but if you have additive in water would it be ok?

    a lot of companies will tell you that its no problem if the alu block is anodised, other people argue that the anodising wears of or something like that, so its still dangerous over time. either way, why take the risk when there are copper blocks available that don't cost more?
