XSPC X2O Delta CPU waterblock

Testing Continued

Testing Continued

If you haven't heard the name D-TEK FuZion then you must have been hiding under a rock for some time, as it is reputed to be one of the best water-cooling blocks available for dual- and quad-core processors. Let's see how it performs...

Q6600 and D-TEK idle graph

Q6600 and D-TEK load graph

Slightly elevated temperatures can be seen here over the XSPC X2O Delta which may be attributed to the elevated ambient temperature. Overclocking of the Intel Q6600 to the same core-speed that was used to test the XSPC X20 Delta waterblock and the D-TEK FuZion really starts to shine...

Q6600 overclock on the D-TEK FuZion

D-TEK Overclocked temps

The D-TEK FuZion in the overclocking phase of the review returned a better cooling result over the XSPC X2O Delta waterblock, even with the slightly elevated ambient temperature. It's not a lot, but enough for the D-TEK FuZion to retain its crown this round.

Idle, Load and Overclocked comparison graph

I have included a graph above to help illustrate the temperature differences between the XSPC X20 Delta and D-TEK FuZion waterblocks. For ambient and water temperatures for each, please see the bottom of the smaller graphs previously.

Let's head over to the conclusion page to see what we can draw from this comparison...

We take XSPC's latest CPU waterblock and pit it against the D-TEK FuZion. Take a look at the review and the results may surprise you.

Excellent review there PV,

I've been waiting nervously for this cos I'd already plumped for the FuZion

I'm now very happy I did with my hotter running B3Quote

Thanks Uncle_Fluffy for the feedback. The X2O Delta is still a very nice block and more than capable of cooling your quad-core. But you'll enjoy your D-TEK too Quote

nice review Matt, i would not be surprised if this block would out preform the fusion when the 8 and 16 cores come out. kind of like the storm and fusion today.Quote

Hi ai_01 and Ham...thanks for the feedback. Your comment certainly holds some weight as XSPC are working on a new revision of the Delta as we speak. As I find out more details I'll let you know...Quote

Mr. Smith
Superb review mate.

Having just ordered the fuZion I was especially pleased (as was Fluffy) when the comparison between the two concluded with the fuZion retaining the cooling crown.

This talk of revising the Delta has me worried!

Must... Have... Best...Quote

Thanks mate Yeah XSPC want to beat the FuZion for sure so it'll pay to keep an eye out in the near future, and with the next revision they may well do it.Quote

I would have though that the block not coming with barbs would have been seen as a con in the conclusion.

Nice review othwerwise though.Quote

16-09-2007, 23:07:22

The block does normally come with barbs but due to the supplier being exceptionally busy I was cutting him some slack. If you order the Delta it will come with barbs, hence the reason that I didn't include it as a con. Thanks for the feedback anyway mate Quote

Nice review, this may be the CPU block I will use for my WC setup Quote

21-09-2007, 08:56:36

Thank you. The X20 Delta is a very capable waterblock and as an added bonus you get to save some money along the way.Quote

Aye this is a lovely waterblock, been in my loop since dayone, lovely Quote
