Default New watercooling products at NCIX

There's some interesting WC products coming into NCIX now- I'd like to compare the accelerator nozzle for the Fuzion waterblock to stock.

Ek Water Blocks Full Coverage NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS GPU Block with Mounting Hardware G1/4 Threads

Water Accelerator Nozzle Kit for D-TEK Fuzion CPU Block

Danger Den MAZE5 GPU Water Block for Most NVIDIA & ATI Video Cards 1/2IN Barbs & Zalman RAM Sinks

Magicool 360 UV Blue Triple 120MM Water Cooling Radiator G1/4 Threads (comes in single 120mm too)


Look here for more

This is the only place I have ever seen the Nozzles listed. They aren't even on the D-TEK site yet. It says 1-2 week special order, but I doubt you'd get them in that time.

AFAIK It's meant to increase the force with which the water makes contact with the heated surface inside the block to increase the heat transfer. Here's a kit for Danger Den, so I assume it will look like one of these parts.

I see. Im kinda a bit disappointed about my FuZion. It doesn't hold temps that good. And i mounted it the tightest i could while not making the board to bend. I think im going back to my Apogee or maybe ill get an Apogee GTX. My apogee gave me freaking good temps on all processors i tested it. Even the Storm s*cked more than my lovely Apogee.

Anyway, thanks Babr!

A Fuzion should be walking over an Apogee. Try completely remounting it. And a Storm really isnt that good of a block for LGA775 CPUs.

It's meant to vary the water flow, by increasing the opening (thus reducing the flow) or decreasing the opening (increasing the flow). If you have a variable speed water pump like the MCP-655, you don't need nozzles.

What I don't like is the fact that any component added to a loop will create more turbulence and possibly decrease the water flow, without even knowing about it. Also, adding a smaller nozzle may just create a back pressure - and you don't want that.

I've played with different setups about one year ago, and only higher temps (by 1-2C, that is) were measured. I wasn't convinced of the added benefits of nozzles.

My 0.02$, CAN of course.

Yeah problem is fixed by now. The motherboard is just reading temps pretty wrong... Coretemp reads temps correctly. I think...
