Looking for a new CPU block for a i7 build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have 3 D-Tek Fusion V1 blocks. And if I could would like to keep them and just use them, but I see no new back plating for the i7/1366 mobo out yet. Plus I would like to use my new Bitpower compression fittings for my Tygon 3603 1/2 tubing. I know they will not work with the Fusion blocks. So I am looking for another block with little or some restriction in it. I see the new Swiftech APOGEE GTZ is getting some good reviews with only some restriction. And I can use my new compression fittings with it. I was wondering which loop would work the best?

BI 240GTX - APOGEE GTZ - eK 4870 X2 - MCP355 w/XSPC Version 3.0 - BI 360GTS - MCP355 w/ XSPC Reservoir - (One loop with 2 pumps)

BI 240GTX - APOGEE GTZ - MCP355 w/ XSPC Reservoir (CPU only)

360GTS - eK 4870 X2 - MCP355 w/ XSPC Reservoir (GPU only)

Thanks for you input...

Individual loops would be best. By looking at your first setup the 4870X2 will get the heat from your cpu.

I'm been looking for a i7 block also. I also got suggest the swiftech apogee gtz. I found a review that showed the flow and restrictions on several different blocks. Dtek is releasing a adapter plate for the fuzion but they haven't given a date yet. I planned on getting the dangerden mc-idx block, it seemed to have a little bit better flow from that review. I'll see if I can find it again.

I would say to go with the individual loops. There will be a lot of heat with your graphics cards.
