8800 GTX waterblocks - Page 3

post #21 of 23
I like GPU only blocks myself too, but all of the blocks cool well enough.

Performance wise, I think the order of ranking is something like this:

1)D-Tek Fuzion GFX - But very very restrictive, best in GPU only loop
2)MCW-60 - fairly low restriction too.
3)EK - Most restrictive full coverage block
4)DD - Lowest restriction block of the bunch

So, there are lots of options, sort of depends on your priorties. A GPU only loops will get the best cooling with the D-TEK GFX.

Here is my old test:
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=157994

Full coverage they are both good, I havn't tested, but have seen several people post the EK did a little better.

In the end...

They are all good and cool plenty well enough. Many people don't gain any overclocks by the differences, this is even more true with the G92 cards.

So...

GPU only loop = D-Tek GFX, most restrictive, but in it's own loop who cares.
CPU & GPU loop = DD if you want the least restrictive and save all your flow rate pennys for the processor to give it #1 priority. The MCW-60 isn't far behind in restriction.

The EK, however has amazing machining finish quality and looks sharp. Although you might argue it's a bit hard to see at the bottom of most cases up side down...?

My2c...had alot of different blocks on my gtx..

Cognoscenti you're a few hours too late lol... sorry. I already ordered a pair ;P

Thanks dr4gon. I'm not a hardcore clocker so I don't think I need the best. I like it to look good while it does it's thing lol...

This is what made it a go for me lol ;P I don't know why I'm just not a big fan of the ramsink look. Just looks umm... non-uniform or thrown together. Obviously personal opinion of course.

Thanks for all the info Martinm210!
