Need help choosing 1366 cpu block - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Looking at the "flow rate" chart, it looks like you guys are right. The "swiffy" apogee has a lower flow rate when compared with the other blocks, then again, the spread between all the blocks is pretty narrow.

Is flow rate really an issue when it comes to the performance of the block?

The way I see it (and correct me if I'm wrong here), but a more restrictive block tells me that there is more obstruction in there, ie; more surface area for heat to transfer from the block to the liquid.

Also, from where can I get an SXPC rasa? Is there a retailer that sells it?

I love my Apogee XT. If you're going with compression fittings just remember to check if it's compatible with the block.

Koolance has the newer 370 block out.

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...d-roundup.html

(Does this roundup give a good indication of quality? i,e; is delta T the only parameter to consider performance-wise?)

The best block is the EK Supreme Full Nickel, but it goes for 75EUR from the manufacturer, which would be ~ $115 with shipping. This is too much.

Tied for second is the Swiftech Apogee XT (~$70), has anyone tried this one?
Use delta T for CPU block loops only. (Very small differences anymore)

For multiple block loops also consider flow rate.

Finally, consider the mounting mechanism, looks, and price.

Generally the top several blocks are so close anymore, it's hard to suggest putting much emphasis on that other than bragging rights. Neither one will net you more overclock than the other, so I would suggest restriction and the latter criteria more than fractions of a degree in temperature.

Thanks guys, I think I'll get the Apogee simply because it's more easily available for me.

I asked another question in my first post here:

Wikipedia says the upcoming socket LGA2011 will be able to use backwards compatible coolers from LGA1366

Does that mean I'll be able to use the Apogee on an upcoming build?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_2011

probably a no brainier, but heck, I've been surprised before.
