The Delphi cold-block from the HyrdoCool is compared in size to the Nautilus one. The size reflects the micro-channel technology of cooling 200W from the Hydrocool to now 500W with the Nautilus. Delphi just engineered the cooling capacity with the new block without sacrificing the size too much.
The Hexus review and the review on Legit Reviews will show the performance benefits.
I'm not too sure about his 6 minute install time.... You have to power the system down, cut tubes, drive to the store and buy distilled water, fill the system up, wire it, clean the old thermal grease off and install new compound, figure out the mounting clip, and then plumb it all through the PCI slots... not to mention topping the system off with water after it starts. Still a good read.

he-he, you should have said the chipset cold-blocks that I did back in 2003. They are still available today. The GPU fittings have a 15 degree tilt to allow the tubing and clamp to fit onto the block and not hit the video card.
