Advice on CPU Waterblock

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I was using an XSPC Rasa waterblock, but since I was still new to watercooling when i did this setup I used premade coolant over distilled water, in which I payed the price for now. So I was hoping someone could give me a suggestion on an waterblock that is Suitable for the Phenom II x6 1090T. Im also using an RX360 rad and the X20 750l Reservoir pump

+1 the rasa block is actually one of the best. (Should be at the top of that chart given Eks current nickel plating issues ;-)

I cleaned it last night just to get my rig running again, used ketchup and an toothbrush, followed by boiling distill water then just regular distilled water. I was just wonder if an others are better but by the looks of that chart i guess not

In order of performance;

Koolance 370
Apogee XT rev.2
Heatkiller 3.0
EK Supreme.

These blocks beat the Raza by at least 2 degrees. The chart us misleading. That is not overclickeded and higher voltage temps.

They all perform within a few degrees of each other. I own the Apogee XT and Healer 3.0 and get unbelievable temps with Phenom II 980/Apogee XT 1.6v at liar 49 degrees prime 95.

This. That rasa block is one of the best on the market. Take it apart and use a toothbrush with some distilled water/vinegar and clean that bad boy out.

Ill let someone else chime in with the specifics on how to clean block as I have never done it.

But personally Id keep your current block and save some money.
