itan's H20 blocks are sealed and removing the "outer shell" only revealed a copper cover soldered to a copper base. As I indicated in previous sections it seems the radiator tubing are also made of copper thereby minimizing the possibility of dissimilar metal corrosion, the nemesis of every water-cooling system.
The only problem I can foresee here is the inability to break down the water blocks and clean any foreign objects which tend to lodge themselves in the water-block channels and/or pins and obstruct flow which eventually degrades performance. Of course ensuring your fluid isn't contaminated is the best defense. Below we see both water-blocks along with the aluminum heatsinks provided by Titan.
Next we have the Sapphire X800XT laid out with the GPU block and included aluminum memory-sinks. The installation hardware shown will accommodate just about all ATI designs. Just a few pieces of the included installation hardware are shown here.
Below wee see both blocks after the leak test process and the ATI GPU water block installed on our card. The installation was made easy with numbered parts and an instruction manual. The leak-test process was uneventful, one criticism would be he use of spring-loaded plastic spread pins. These eventually wear and cannot be repeatedly re-installed on numerous blocks.
Titan did a great job at predicting the required hose lengths; I was impressed with high-quality tubing used by Titan which was extremely flexible. Below the CPU water-block has been mounted on the DFI Socket-939. The CPU block was an all copper affair with an excellent finish.
Taking a closer look at the Robela VGA bock installed on the Sapphire X800XT (R423 Core). The spring-loaded plastic spreader pins aren't my favorite since they eventually wear after repeated installations and with enough pressure on the mounting hardware I've seen some dislodge. Most people don't really complain though.
Installation was simple, for AMD Socket-939 Titan supplied a Lever-tensioned cross brace which uses the same tabs as a stock AMD cooler and the mounting hardware for the VGA block is either spring-loaded push pins or through-mount bracket depending on the card model/make. Below we see a perspective looking down into the case and cooling system.
Of course the question we need to answer is how well the Robela's diminutive pump, yet massive radiator will work together in a multi-block H20 cooling system?
