Which block?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Trying to build a really cheap CPU loop for an I7 920.

Trying to decide if this block is any good, the price seems amazing but not sure about it-

http://www.svc.com/oczthydf.html


It's either that or the standard heatkiller 3.0 for $40. Will the HK be that much better?

You can't really beat that price. If cheap is your priority with a good level of performance this is definitely the one to pick up. Of course you can look at used section but I wouldn't bother.

Lol the link you gave it to a cpu block that dont fit your board.
you have the 1156 pin, alos you can look for 1155 pin same mobo config.
I like my heatkiller . ek high flow is the best. I got a mcw80 on 480gtx so that is most restive part. so My temps @ 4 ghz folding 4 days 70degs hottest temps. i dont care for ocz water blocks.

Thanks, but it's $9 for shipping so that puts it up to $33. The HK3.0 I can get for ~$40 shipped, can you find any reviews of this block VS an HK?

Than the scenario changes. 7 dollar will definitely worth it. Basically Heatkiller will be performing better than the Swiftech in the review I posted. For that review setup it would probably be $7 for -8 degrees.

The Heatkiller will outperform that block by 5C+, definitely worth it. The Hydroflow doesn't use an injection plate, the Heatkiller does. That alone makes the HK a better block. Add in the better looks and mounting system and for $7 it's a no brainier.

can tell you right now that the HK3.0 will be better than the OCZ block. If you can get it for $40 shipped that is a win and I would go for it.

Like Averwind said the HK3.0 is better than the GTZ and the GTZ is better than the OCZ.

OK sounds good, just wasn't sure of any major differences. The injection plate thing is what I needed to know. Thanks guys.

I may have missed something here but if your looking at 40.00 for just the cpu block, you still need a pump,res, and rad not to mention all the little extras
(tubbing, fittings, clamps, ect)

why not for 110.00 get his kit and be done

then you have everything and your set

Thats a good deal but I can't fit a 240 rad, only a 120 (gonna be a thicker one though). Plus that reservoir is also like 5 times times larger than a MCP350 with a XSPC top (which is what I plan to get).

Right now I only have the pump for $35 and the block I can get for $40 as I said. Everything else looks to be a new purchase, as I can't find any decent deals used. Jab tech has good prices though-

120mm rad- $35 (44mm thick 2 row)
4' clearflex tubing (3/8'' ID 5/8'' OD) $4
Antimicrobial silver strip- $5
XSPC top- $33
4 EK HF 3/8'' fittings- $10 (rad comes with 2, so I only need 4)

With shipping $95 for all that. Plus $35 for the pump and $40 for the block, couple buck for some distilled water so like $175 for a complete CPU loop thats really good and compact.
