It's a much more guaranteed fix than just waiting for the water to evaporate and hoping there's no conductive residue or corrosion anywhere.

To be fair, though, tap water in London taste horrid. Still won't do you any harm, but bleugh.

The cost of the block alone puts it around the price the price of a standard 780ti, but surely you'd also have to add in the cost of other WC components? It seems the majority of people have jumped ship to AIO CPU coolers instead of full loops, so the majority would have to build a dedicated loop to achieve these results.
Seems like a missed opportunity to match it up with a 780Ti.
