Help me choose a 775 water block.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need to buy a 775 waterblock.
The one Im using now has been modified and the wrong holddown still doesnt fit correctly.
I need to buy a new block.
Im using 3/8 tubing at the moment so I need that size fittings.
Im looking for price/performance.

Just found one in the for sale section.
I did some reading and it appears that this would satisfy my needs.
Thanks for input.

The price of all the blocks is pretty minimal compared to the overall water cooling costs...are any over US$65? Most seem to think the D-Tek Fuzion has the edge, although some others may be close.

Really the Fuzion is one of the best and you can get nozzles kits for it to. FuZion CPU Block...D-Tek FuZion Accelerator Nozzle Kit. I don't think I would use jets unless its a CPU only loop and you have a good high head pump...I'd use a back-plate with any s/775 mobo, it might make it easier for you to get a good mount with one...Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set

The more i look at the new multi-core TDX the more i like it to...It has a lot of potential I think....MC-TDX s/775

I thought there is at least one review of the EK Supreme that had it working better than the D-Tek Fuzion. In many ways it is similar to a well nozzled D-Tek Fuzion, and if I recall correctly, the D-Tek Fuzion wasn't nozzled in the test.

Ira, why do think the DD MC-TDX has that potential? It hasn't in published tests. It seems similar to the Fuzion, except the Fuzion scavanges from four corners, and has directional vains there. The EK Supreme slits act as a nozzle over the multiple dies.

What I don't understand, is how the D-Tek worked without the washer.

The TDX looks like a good free flowing block...See that little patch of recessed pins? I'd shave those down a little farther and then make a jet barb for it, see what that would do...





Like this in my Stinger's jet barb....I've tried X,+, and just slots but the shower head pattern fstfrddy sends them with seems to work the best...Thats a 3/4" jet barb, the thing is a freaking work of extreme art... Thanks to fstfrddy...



The EK would be a real nice one to play with to, the jet plate looks like its around 22 guage, you could make all kinds of configs for it out of brass sheet, slits and holes and what not...That and it has the old time fin base, I'd have to try to cut across it about every 32 of a inch to make some micro-pins right in the center...That might help bump the turbulence a little with a shower head pattern right above it in the plate, then slits or whatever along the rest of the plate....Put a pair of the old orange impeller 18W DDC in series with it and you could peel paint with it.......I run CPU only loops with high head pumps so restriction really isn't a problem for me....I love paint peeling blocks...

I think EK has a shower pattern actually. The base has fins instead of pins. While this site won't let me link the picture, the picture on overclock3d shows that the plates is perpendicular to the fins, effectively creating a mesh at their juncture.

In all of these there is the question does jet area cover the hot area for quad core two die processors? The EK probably does. However, I', not sure the low pin area on the MC-TDX or the area covered by the nozzle on the Fuzion does.

I assume in all cases the purposes of the jets it to break through any boundary layer around the pins.
