Default D-tek Fuzion block mounting

Quick question for you guys, been looking at the Fuzion pro mount kit, will the thermalright lga 775 bolt thru kit work in place for the fuzion block..

Thanks.

The top hold-down portion of the TR kit is useless for any waterblock.

The screw/spring assemblies and the backing plate might work, depending on the exact Fuzion configuration. The V1 has a top mounting plate that pushes down on the entire block from above, that the TR kit doesn't have a prayer of working with. The Pro-version mounting (stock with Fuzion V2) might work, although I've never actually tried it myself.

I bought this block off someone, and he said he had the lga 775 mounting kit, unfortunately stuff is missing, the screws don't have a head to it, just big screw rods.. So until he doesn't respond back, I'm stuck on mounting this block..

And unfortunately he's a famous person here..

Buy a 775 Quickmount kit, it will have the promount bracket on it, except with pushpins. Now just remove those pushpins, and use the thermalright bolt through kit on it. Make sure you use a good enough washer, so that the springs don't clip into where the pushpin holes were



See what I mean, just remove the pushpins, and slap on a washer for each corner

Question is where do I buy one, unless someone on this forum has one, or even the original mounting hardware, that would work too..

Thanks for the comments though..

Well I went a little ghetto and used the swiftech apogee gt mounting but used the thumb nuts from the fuzion hardware to mount this thing.. This was just a test, when I put my loop up, hopefully it works fine, it tightened perfectly, and there is enough contact so far..




Sorry for the blurry pics..

There isn't really anything wrong with that mounting at all.

Perhaps a little on the ghetto side but meh..

Yes the board is warped but that is because your not using the metal bracket to apply even pressure to all sides of said water block.

I got it to install, it came out to be mounting hardware for the DD TDX block, followed the procedure, installed with no warp at all..
