You really got me on this one, just from looking at it I would of thought it was more restrictive then that..Not that its not i just thought it would be even worse...Thanks for the testing...

I've been wondering about that chiller, look forward to the results...

Thanks!
Yeah I thought we might have a new king of restriction when I first looked at it, but the pin matrix on the bottom really isn't all that restrictive and they did chamfer the nozzle holes where there was room, so that probably helps quite a bit.

I think alot of manufacturers are ignoring the sharp edges and how much improvement you can get with a little chamfering. NaeKuh said I could do whatever I want with his EK supreme, so I'm going to try a simple nozzle cleanup mod and see what the pressure drop improvement is.

Anyhow, this isn't my testing, but Niksub1's thermal testing of this block along with several others with his RD30 pump at 18V: I think it's a really good method of testing, but the RD30 and E6600 may slightly favor more restrictive blocks. I'm still suspect that a 5.5mm nozzle will be the sweet spot for single D5/DDC3.2 pumps.

if that's from an RD30, what do the 1,2,3,4 and 5 stand for?

Looks like it cools pretty well to....I'd think that the more pump behind a restrictive block would make a big difference in temp's to...You could almost peel paint off a wall with the Iwaki pushing through it, which I love...

That block would be sick with a silver base and then grind out a silver top for it...The silver base might be good for another C or 2 to...I might have to get a silver one and do that, I've always wanted a silver block....

Heck yeah smoothing and chamfering can have a big impact...You want to keep all that velocity for the block and rad not scrubbing it off in the fittings...Look forward to seeing if you can do much with the pressure drop...

So, is the Fuzion better with just a washer and no nozzle when cooling a CPU? I'm just a little confused. Thanks.
