Is the Phobya Waterblock for $56 a good buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
There was an issue with one of the ports being milled/threaded on a thin port of the acetal top (google: "Stren's cpu review"). I haven't heard if they (phobya) have addressed this.

For the price check out the Raystorm or the Apogee HD. There's an Apogee HD w/ a built in mcp 35x pump too thumb.gif

I'm now looking at a MCP655 with PWM and a bits power mod kit. Will I bee able to use monsoon fittings on that?

Have you already tried to boot into 5.0ghz and see if your CPU can handle 5.0 without 1.6 volt or extreme high voltage?
Not all chips can hit the same speeds at the same volts.

Best advice I can give you is, don't look at one chart and make a decision, look at it and research 10 more times to see what and why affected those results.

Remember, H2O will only cool so much and ambient temps matter a lot, the other part is your CPU, whether air or water, your CPU might not do speeds at volts or temps you like.

Wish you best of luck mate:thumb:

not unless you buy a custom mcp655 that is made with fittings for example

the bare pumps don't allow for barbs just tubing

Yup going to have to agree, Not all chips are created equal. Just because you can boot to 5.0ghz using 1.55v doesn't mean it will be stable.
Small wonder.

Well I'm trying to get a CPU from this batc number 3234Cx15, 3218Bx15 I've been researching and it seems like they can go to 5ghz with 1.4v and stay stable.

Batches are still a very gimmicky thing to go on. IMO it wasn't like the older days that a certain batch is for sure very good. Ever since Sandy came out batches don't mean that much imo.

KuuFA is right,
if you research more you will even see the same batches that do "5ghz with 1.4" dont do 4.7 with 1.4ghz, batch number will not guarantee you any results, its less of a 50% chance of yours doing what another users does.

I urge you to not use this as a purchasing point, you are going to have a hard time finding a exact batch and when you do you will be irritated that your chip doesn't do what mine, his or hers does

GL though mate:thumb:
