Apparently best mount for 2011 CPUs is Swiftech Apogee HD.....

Hey mate... yea thats a good block. I got an XSPC Full Copper, a very heavy block and really doing wonders with this loop (as u know i have one different loop biggrin.gif )

Thing is; physical mount is not actually enough, proper contact still remains an issue for these hig wattage CPUs. All these blocks are giving good coverage for 1155 or 1156 CPUs. As 2011 CPUs are pretty big, mounting sometimes can be somehow problematic but could still be solved. According to tests, Apogee Swift HD seems to work best for 2011.

When I got this one I refitted it with the 2011 jet plate that comes with the block , got a good improvement of about 5c -9c with the gelid TIM wheee.gif

That's close to what mine runs at for a 360 , 240 set up wink.gif
Forgot to mention that I'm running @4.5GHz. My loop is like this:-
pump/res >> CPU >> 360mm rad >> GPU >> 240mm rad >> pump/ress

With H100 (delta T): 7C idle & 32C BF3
With Raystorm (delta T): 5C idle & 27C BF3

^^ Is these figure look ok to you? I think I see little difference because the water still being cooled by 240mm rad before it reached CPU. I have this crazy idea to put 360mm or 480mm rad (the latter if enough space) at the bottom & put the PSU at the front, where the removable HDD cages located.

It seems most water block performed closely with each other. You might interested with this review:-
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?285753-CPU-water-blocks-roundup

However the review was using 3930k which is known to have mild bow. Our 3820 doesn't have bow though by looking to the thermal paste impression left on the CPU. BTW, I have to use "+" method for the thermal paste to spread properly because of huge heat spreader surface on 2011.

what about that res i linked back there.....that should be big enough right
post #3048 of 6491
Thread Starter 
They are a good block. My first block was a 360i performed well too. and about $15 cheaper than my EK . The heavier the better (more copper) thumb.gif
post #3049 of 6491
ok looks like i am set on the

Koolance 380i or the Raystorm....both are $75

XSPC RX240

this reservoir http://www.dazmode.com/store/product/bitspower_water_tank_z-multi_150_-_60mm_tube_reservoir_-_red

^ if you guys think it is big enough

and really dont know what to get as far as pump........looking at 2 right now

this http://www.dazmode.com/store/product/dazmode_storm_d5_vario_8-24v_pump/ (the one i think i am going with cause price and rating)

and this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18221/ex-pmp-230/Swiftech_MCP655-PWM-DRIVE_12v_Water_Pump_-_PWM_Enabled_Full_Version.html?tl=g30c107s1802


lol @ all the choices

I know too much choice wink.gif You want a pump that does at least 1000 - 1200 liters per hour good for when you decide to w/block your cards more flow the better . Also if you can get a 250 long res more capacity of course
I have 2 res's one in the drive bay and one outside my case . I can add/remove it from my loop any time thanks to Koolance and their QDC's All up nearly 2 liters of coolant smile.gif
