Best CPU waterblock?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hi guy's. I'm using an EK Supreme block on my CPU but I'm trying to get my Q6600 past 3.4GHz which is needing a lot more voltage and driving my temps right up. Just wondering if anyone knows for sure a cooler block than this?

Hi

The D-Tek Fuzion is an excellent block.

The D-tek v2 is supposed to be a great cooler. I'm only beginning my forrays into water cooling, and i'm set to recieve my block either today or tomorrow. I probably won't have my loop till next week or so, but according to everyones results, that is the block to go with.

XSPC Edge.

However, don't expect too much from upgrading your waterblock. You maybe able to get 2-3C lower and that's about it.

I believe that its not available in the US yet. I was going to buy that, and i couldn't find one anywhere, so i got the D-tek instead.

ive got an EK supreme and it is a very good block..ive seen a review or 2 where it beats a fuzion stock for stock, but a fuzion with quad nozzle will probs beat it a few degrees..but really you wont see much of a difference..get a better rad,fans or pump for bigger change in temps..also try using a shroud on your rad if your arnt already.

I'm using probably one of the best rads and pumps out there. Thermochill PA 120.3 rad and Swiftech MCP 655 pump. I haven't got a shroud on my rad though. What kind of changes would you expect with a shroud?

"Paging Ira-K..."

He did an experiment with and without shrouds, I don't remember the exact numbers, but it was a bigger differnece than simply 2-3 C from a different block

EDIT: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...t-shrouds.html
^He got around a 6C difference

P.S: The Fuzion v2 is a nice block, very happy with results so far, im about 3 degrees above ambient
