was a pretty unknown brand to me. Aquatuning is warranting its distribution to the European masses. Their first block, being released in November 2008, carries the same name as the company. In fact Phobya is not a company but a union of several ones. This to allow each participant has its own saying in the development and production process.
When I received the box I thought it was empty... This block absolutely is the absolute featherweight amongst these Nehalem blocks.
Clear IN and OUT markings on the top will ensure proper hook up in your loop. If you mess up, then you must be partly blind. Outside looks are futuristic, yet kept very basic without too much rif raf.
The bottom copper plate is extremely thin (reminding me of the Corsair H50 bottom plate) I really wonder how it could ensure proper conductivity between the microscopic small pin structure and the fluid passing by. If you look closely you can see the copper being bend by the screws.
The inside is less dull then the outside. A super crafted dispenser plate with micro nozzles and channels directs the cooling fluid in and out of the block. On a sidenote : don't dissemble the block for fun, took me ages to get the o-ring back into position.
Hmmm without sounding too repetitive, yes the same stuff here; screw, springs, washers and nuts and one tube of thermal paste included in the package...
Last piccie of the Phobya block completely mounted and ready to rock...
