everyone's first wc build leaks.  always.

while you are shopping, get yourself the CoolerMaster H212.  

every watercooler needs at least one air cooler in her arsenal.

Was thinking about the Evo too as this is even advertised as a cheap Evo.

Just hit up amazon to look at Evo's and realized cooling loops are a whole new money pit I knew nothing about...!

I don't see 1151 on there for my 6700k and the dimensions for this block look a lot different from the others that look to be 1151 compatible

The nickel EVO is nice.

I'll give it to Intel, they may screw us on pin count, but at least the cooler specs have stayed consistent.

For God's sake, handle this one like a watch assembly, not a tire change.

Keep the broken one too. Someday you'll have the skillset to watercool your cat.

This is a pretty general mistake. The biggest WC oops award still goes to the guy on RRR that pulled about 40 rotary fittings apart to paint them. -They don't come apart...

That nickel is probably my best choice.  I'm going to check that other block again because it's sexy.  I already have to push the caps out of the way with my current block and I thought the specs on it were even bigger.

That nickel Evo seems like it would look nice with the MSI 1080ti ek x if it ever comes out...

I'm guessing these are the block measurements.  sure, small variant.

But it doesn't change the universal mounting.

Went with the acrylic and nickel Evo.  Should be a little upgrade.  Don't know if this is a dumb question, but it sounds like and looks like the mounting kit might be universal.  Can I keep the plate that is already mounted through the motherboard on and just replace the block?
