    Default EK parts

    Anybody got an opinion about how good EK waterblocks are and where they fall in the table of "best cpu blocks"

    While I'm here....what is this I've seen about nozzles are they worth having? is there much effect on the flow rate?

    In watercooling world here are the best of the best CPU blocks;
    Dtek Fuzion, Swiftech Apogee GTX & GT

    check out this review from DoomedPC site

    About the nozzles, its all depends. I think you know what it does right?
    If you have weak pump I won't use it. Yes nozzles does hurt your flow rate. A good designed cpu block don't need the addition nozzles.

    EK are far superior to D-Tek and Apoc from my personal experience.

    I've had them all and found that EK are far better for budget and for performance as well.

    Nozzles are just for show TBH, I have never had the need to use them and for what I've read it doesn't impead your flowrate but consentrate the flow in a faster flow/extraction rate.

    Up to you if you wont them but I say you don't need them tbh.


    When you thinking of putting this in the action?
