6700k waterblock.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am trying to make my first custom watercooling loop. What are the main differences in the $45 and the $85 cpu blocks? What is a good cpu block for the money?

Well, there is no big difference when it comes to the temps. Max. 1-2° between a HK4 Basic and a HK4 Pro...for example

So you could buy a low cost chinese made block like this guy here:

or the Aquacomputer Kryos delrin - made in germany


or you spend more money for quality and bling for a HK4 or the new upcoming Koolance CPU-390 block

But there really isn't that big of a difference? I was convinced that the cooling block was the most important part, other than the radiator. I plan to add my r9 390 to the loop at a later time, if that makes a difference.

Nah there isn´t a big difference, just have a look at some roundups with cpu waterblocks, like this one :

Same with gpu blocks

Performance wise they're within a couple degrees apart from each other...but build qyality and customer support and aesthetics are a big factor with more expensive blocks...do yourself a favor and just find an EK Supremacy Evo on ebay or craig's list..can't go wrong with that, it's only 60 or so u can find them at. Chump change compared to what you'll spend doing a custom loop.
