Recent Water Block (GT/Fuzion/Storm) Test Results

I've been compiling a list of independent (largely informal) test results for the new crop of CPU water blocks that have recently arrived on the scene. They appear to have dislodged the venerable Swiftech Storm from top spot on the podium. Their large thinner bases, combined with their higher flow, larger internal cooling surface area, and maximized turbulace appears to be netting folks anywhere from 3-10 degree improvements in CPU delta temps under load.

Unfortunately, due to the variables in mounting and even variations in temperature results from one run to the next, its impossible at this time to declare one block difinitively superior to another.

Check out the test results for yourself at the XtremeSystems Liquid Cooling Forum.

I personally like the looks of the recently announced Swiftech Apogee GTX (but expect it's performance to be very similar to the Apogee GT)...

Since Fuzion and Apogee are compatible and either of them is proven to be the best, I would try to combine them together. Redcorn seems to have done that and the performance is better. Why don't you give it a try?
