At the core of the Phoby UC-2 lies a new middle layer, based on the patented micro channel recirculation technology which was already successful in the UC-2'nd predecessor. Further developement of this design for use with a slot structure in the cooling plate allowed the creation of a CPU water block which plays amongst the best on the market. Not only excellent cooling performance, but also outstanding design and quality make the water block unique and innovative. Upon introduction to the market, the Phobya UC-2 immediately climbed to the very top of the CPU water block market [Cited date 14.6.2012 source: Hardwaremax]
A protective foil protects the polished underside of the water block. Please remove this foil before installation! 56x56mm in site, the cooling plate features an extremely fine slot structure which is one of the most advanced on the market. 68 cooling channels fill a surface area of 35 x 31.3mm, each only 0.2mm wide. The fins in between the slots also have a thickness of only approx. 0.2mm. Above the slot structure, an approx. 1mm thick middle plate is inserted. It serves two purposes:
1: In the middle an injection slot is placed, perpendicularly directing the coolant collected from the inlet chamber into the cooling channels
2: At the bottom of the middle plate coolant recirculation channels are implemented. These channels increase flow rates and create mico-turbulence caused by cross-flow, further increasing cooling performance
A wide array of tests was conducted to determine the one design whichlead to the ideal result. Width, length and number of injection slots were variied until the desired result was achieved. An innovative coolant drain system rounds off the design of the water block, featuring two recirculation channels from the outlet collection chamber to the outlet.
For maximum fitting compatibility, the connection threads are spaced 23mm apart (center to center), even allowing the use of tubing with an outer diameter of 16mm! As a result of this well-rounded and innovative design, the Phobya UC-2 achieves sensational cooling performance on single-, dual-, quad- and even hexa-core CPUs!
The black gloss design was further improved and now comes in a more elegant version. Besides the black glossy top plate, both mounting plate and screws are now completely black. Laser engraving on the top plate marks In- and outlet with arrows. Two versions of the water block are available, one compatible with AMD and one with Intel.
Note: After in house testing 1/2" x 3/4" compression fittings will NOT fit this CPU block.
IMPORTANT: HAND-TIGHTEN FITTINGS ONLY! Only compatible with fittings with a thread length of 5mm or shorter. Damages to the top plate caused by improper use are not covered by the warranty!

Phobya decided to abbreviate this cpu cooler so that more people would buy it. The real name for this cooler is Ultimate Crap-revision 2. Just like the person that came before me the block leaked. I was able to remove the front plate to determine from which port was leaking. After checking the washers, check, then applying some teflon tape to both fittings i was able to get the out fitting to stop leaking. More tape on the inlet to the tune of about six to eight wraps, and it still leaked like a stick pig. Now I''m out $60 plus shipping and i have to explain to my customer why he will be getting his computer later than expected. Repeat - AVOID AT ALL COST. Not worth the headaches.

I thought this would be a decent block for the money. If mounted flat, laying down, it might be alright. Vertical is a different story, at least for me. The first leak happened around the input. I first thought it was the o-ring on the barb, but come to find out it was between the housing and the female plug. Once that was corrected, the block began seeping fluid out between theh top plate and the side walls. Not much I can do about that but hope that some type of silicone or caulk will seal it. I am using a 750 lph pump so it may just not be able to handle the pressure. Either way, this one has got to go.
