    Aren't they officially known as GALAX now rather than Galaxy/KFA2?

    I thought that was a region thing or was GALAX supposed to be unifying the name across all regions?

    They were going to be Galax, but I think that another company owns that name, so they had to go back to KFA2. Did a quick search and the only results are about Galaxy (the NA brand) merging with KFA2 (the european brand), doesn't seem to be much information about the name dispute afterwards.

    Only $100 more than air cooled is not too unreasonable. Not clear from pictures whether there are inlets on both sides of the water block which is important for clean tube routing.

    Would need to see a review and some more pictures, but pretty tempting

    All the gpu blocks I've had, have threading all the way through cjs150, I'd hope this is the same, it let's you choose which side is 'dead' and put a stopper on it.

    The blocks have ports on both sides. I just finished a build with two of them.
