Fuzion V2 vs EK Supremacy

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I currently own a dinosaur.... I mean, a D-Tek Fuzion V2, bought 7 years ago, that has cooled down my oldest LGA775 Q6600, a i7 920, and a 3570K over the years.

My question is, I know this waterblock is nothing new, but, would there be a *massive* difference on a delidded i5 3570k (or difference in general) to a newer block, like an EK Supremacy? And any difference when compared to other block that are not so high-end as the Supremacy?

If the difference were greater than 5ºC, I would consider it, but if there were barely any at all...

I'm asking since I've found no review that compares the Fuzion V2 with newer blocks directly.

Thanks!

Check out the new version of the EK Supremacy Evo. Do yourself a favor and save the time trying to compare the dinosaur with the new Evo biggrin.gifthumb.gif

I saw there was a considerable difference from the EKSEVO to the other blocks, but I don't know where my FV2 falls on that list... because, as said, I'm not going to spend 70€ + shipping on 5ºC biggrin.gif

It is all about personal preference, you aren't spending 70 Euros on 5C, you are spending it on the block itself tongue.gif

Since it is watercooling, that block itself is only one factor in temperatures, whether it be 1/10 or 1 out of however many other components you have that affect the water temperature of your loop. At the end of the day we know there are some improvements on the EK Evo and we can get an idea with the reviews comparing it to the older blocks but there's no magical 20C improvement on the block so it's going to be that +/- 5 that makes you either happy with this purchase or not.

If everything is running fine I would say save your money.

I understand perfectly... didn't think of it that way.

The block is working flawlessly yes, it just needs some cleaning. I suposse I was just asking myself "Is there any need to upgrade?"

Not really. There is literally no reason to upgrade, unless you want to feel "fresh". Just spend some time with your old block, clean it, polish it, give it a new finish maybe? wink.gif

I'm sure we all share the experience of needing and wanting when it comes to builds, most of the time it falls on the want side.
I'll agree with aka13 though, give your old block a nice cleaning and I don't think you'll need to look back as if you are missing anything. I hope my waterblock can last as long as yours did smile.gif

I suposse the same goes for my radiator, a Thermochill PA.120.3. Old as hell (just like the block), but it still works as it should, with 6x Yate Loons SH in push pull.

Thanks a lot for the input and comments! everyone gets +reps biggrin.gif

Rad is a bit different, it has a massive area of copper, which propably has accumulated some salts. Get yourself some cleaning solution, for example Mayhem cleaning solution, clean it, flush it, change the coolant. Could improve your performance by 3-4 C.
