since the block was round, do you know if it fully covers the IHS?

It's been some time since I've heard of anything Koolance.

The casted type pyramids in the block are the trade mark of Koolance. I have an older square block with a golden/yellow plastic cover and 1/4" fittings.

Their block is no EK-Supreme, but for tweaking the BigWater 760i, it can be handy.

cool, thats the only setback ive seen of circular blocks. for example, my crappy water block is square but the contact surface is round and doesnt make full contact

Yup, like Nate said, it covers the whole CPU.

I quickly put it on an old skt A board I have and it will work, BUT if you have large/tall capacitors next to the socket you may run into an issue with clearance.

When I find my camera I'll snap a pic for you.
