Hey guys part 2

ive found some bits, an im thinking about buying bit by bit here are some bits

Whats the best barb sizes im thinking 1/2 does it change performance

CPU Block: D-Tek FuZion £37 1/2" Nickle Plated
Pump: dB-1 Compact 12v Ultra Quiet Compact Pump £26
Rad: XSPC RS360 Black £28
Hose: PrimoChill Anti-Kink Coils 1/2"- Black
Res: XSPC Bay Reservoir - Black £19

And hose clamps but which are all the same i think LOL

so guys are these bits any good or just naff

an will it work better then air cooling or is it just the same?

Thank

I wouldn't get black hoses because you can't see if you have air bubbles, and makes it much more harder to bleed the loop.

Maybe get Clear tubing, and dye your coolant close to a black, or just make your own coolant, with dyies to make black

Seems like a decent setup for someone on a budget. 3 protips.

1. BE PATIENT!
2. Triple check ALL connections before you even think of putting liquid in it and leak test for atleast 4-5 hours.
3. Take lots of pics.

Thats not bad at all, that pump should be fine with a cpu only loop and a Fuzion block...I wouldn't use jets in it, that would make it to restrictive with that pump, you can still install a washer and bow it for better performance with s/775..D-Tek FuZion Washer Made Easy. ...You might want a back-plate, it seems to help make better WB mounts.Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set..I'm sure you can find them there to....I'll leave you my cleaning and set-up PDF to...Read all the stickies here also, good stuff in them...

If the usual places dont have the block, i've found stock here, but its a bit more expensive than the rest.

oh man this is great news

i gotta wait at least 2 weeks for pay day tho

ive seen that the EK cpu block has a better performance against a stock D-Tek but how about if i get the accelerator nozzle kit would it make any difference

an you reccomend gettings pro mounting kit



ive seen the results of a D-tek fuzion running a Q6600 at 3.5 at 57c

anyone no what kinda speeds an temp to expect when overclocking my e6600 ?
