I have for sometime now climbed upon my soap box and said that we have got to start building smarter and not bigger if we are going to improve cooling. With the RDX, this is a block where this clearly have been done. It also gains a lot of strength by not being a single concept, but a collection of ideas. Danger Den are without question going to gain criticism from people saying, this bit is not new, it had been stolen from this or that block. I have to say it was my instant response. On stripping the layers what you find is that they have tried to use what we know in smart and innovative combinations, to produce a new and high performing block.
This they have definitely succeeded in doing. For those about to scream, it is not Ford who owns the pistons, only how they specifically utilize them.
This is a well designed block which comes with the added bonus of being genuinely easy to fit. However this is a dual outlet, which makes it a complete nightmare for us with dual CPU's and not much better fore those with thin cases. This is in no means a replacement for the likes of the Maze 4, but more another block within the range. Though I am not sure this is the plan.
The lack of width of this block also does not lead itself to be usable for those who want to explore the land of TEC's, which is a shame as dual outlets do lend themselves to extreme cooling so well.
So we get to the award. Anything other than a GOLD AWARD would be an insult to the block and to add I have to take my hat off to Danger Den, for building a block using more brains than metal.
