Default Better waterblock than D-Tek Fuzion CPU WB?

I've been looking for reviews for this WB lately and it seems that its better than the Fuzion CPU WB. Is this true?

In some cases yes, but it is also more restrictive. This means it is best used in a CPU only loop, and not very good if you have a VGA or Chipset block in the same loop.

Also, this might be off-topic... anyways, is a full coverage WB for the GFX better than something like the Fuzion+UNISINK combo?

People seem to swear by both, my FC block seems good, and I dont mind the hit to my overall temperatures, though they are LARGE. If you're worried about warping, then go with the smaller block.
