Yeah, the premium CPU waterblocks have reached a plateau. There literally isn't any real way to increase the heat transfer from the block to the water more than they already have. The last several blocks have only been able to shave 1-5 degrees off prior generations. I'd imagine the same will soon be true of the self-contained units pretty soon as well.
