D-Tek Quad Nozzle Worth It?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is the nozzle set worth the effort? How much difference have you guys noticed? I'm going to place an order soon, and was wondering if I should grab it.
TBD..

"It is better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it..."

Plus, for $7.00 on the top of your order, why wouldn't you?

From everything I have read, as long as your pump is up to it, nozzles work well.
As long as you aren't putting too many other thing in the loop. The do restrict flow, but can help temps.

it's like 2 seconds more effort to drop it in and the washer is beneficial too...

It works as it should and I would throw it in.

I bought the kit, but so far I've only installed the washer. In my opinion the washer should have been in the original design. I might install the quad nozzle when my NB waterblock arrives.

Whoops, almost forgot about this thread.

So what does the washer do? I don't think I ever heard of it.

There is a suprising amount of water that bypasses the block without a washer. I would recommend anyone with a fuzion to at least run a washer in place. It won't bow the block and is extremely easy to install.
