One of the companies that have had a tremendous, and unexpected even to themselves, growth rate over the last year has been Watercool. Their Heatkiller IV range of CPU and GPU blocks have been so popular that customers have been facing delays, but this has not stopped Watercool from offering a block for the very first time to cool non-reference PCB GPUs as well. It is a time of expansion for them to keep up with the increased demand, so it is only natural that we take a look and see what the fuss is all about and continue the GPU waterblock series accordingly. Let’s thank Watercool for the review samples and begin with a look at the specs from the product page:
