Is the DTek Fuzion V2 good enough for an i7 970 ????.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi

I already own a DTek Fuzion v2 with quad insert and 1366 mount from when i was going to watercool my i7 920 D0.

What i'd like to know is will this water block still be good enough to cool the i7 970 or should i really be thinking of getting a better block ????.

Thankyou

Dave.

Stick with the DTek. That cpu block can pull out some nice temps.

rep for you both

Are we talking only a few degree's between my DTek v2 and other blocks out at the mo ????.

One thing i've seen is i cant fit 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD Bitspower compression fittings to the block due to how close the inlet and outlet are but am i right in thinking i could instead fit a couple of the Bitspower 45 degree compression fittings instead as shown here:

Thanks guys for your input so far.

The fusion is a very old block...

Uses the old design of low resistance, with high channels.

One of today's top 5 will give u a noticable reduction in load temps.

But as i already own the DTek, would spending £65-£75 ( $105-125 ) on a new top spec block be worth the noticeable reduction in temps or are we talking about the difference only being more noticeable if i overclock to the extreme, i'm looking to have my i7 970 cpu at around 4.2ghz, maybe a touch more.

All input appreciated

Dave.

The Fusion V2 is what? 3 years old? If there are half a dozen blocks that best it, (not counting multiple versions of the same thing) I'd be surprised. I don't believe it's worth the upgrade.

if you have the cash for an i7 970, surely you can spare a bit for an XSPC Rasa cpu block, then sell the "old" block

The FuZion v2 isn't that old... a DD Maze3 would be what I'd consider old.

That said, the main feature that gave the FuZion v1 and FuZion v2 an edge over other waterblocks of the time was the base topography and how the curvature altered the HIS-to-waterblock contact patch. Internally, there isn't really anything special about them.

Sure, the FuZion v2 won't perform quite as well as more modern blocks... but we're talking a difference of a few degrees. Considering that the OP already has the FuZion v2, I don't see the performance difference being worth the cost of a new CPU block. Maybe I'm crazy--maybe I have aluminum on the brain ()... just my 2¢

Note to the OP: You may want to experiment with the standard nozzle insert and see whether or not it performs better, since the 970 is one large die (the quad core nozzle midplate/insert was designed for dual die CPUs). If you aren't satisfied with the performance of the block with either insert installed, then sell it off and pick up a newer block. There's no harm in giving it a go and then making your decision.
