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...

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

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
