XS should have one... At CES 2007 in Jan, didn't Swiftech have the open challenge? I know D-Tek was there and Swiftech discovered bowing then.

Found some interesting data. Looks like I'll be going Fuzion based on its out-of-the-box performance and price tag. Much better than the GTX which requires bowing to compete :\\

Yeah I think the Fuzion is by far the best of the new commercial WB's....

Then again... D-Tek is researching nozzles for the FuZion. Homemade ones supposedly drop temps by 1-2C.

I can probably machine out a few good nozzles for the Fuzion if it's worth it.

I also can probably make a good backplate out of aluminum to allow a hard mount


I also would obviously lap the base, no matter which block I buy.

I threw out the first round of test for the shootout, with a new Gigabyte mobo and DDR2 due in tomorrow
the results should be posted by the end of next week.

Place an o-ring on the center inlet tube between the top and mid plate.
The optimal thickness is suppose to be that of the D-Tek barb o-ring.

I am very pleased at the performance of the FuZion WBs I am using. I used to be Storm only...but these are great WBs. The new GTX is crap IMO..they totally sold out and made it as cheaply as possible.
