    so, I own this older block.. it was a one size fits.. but old, like 2007..
    left my watercooling .. now
    I want to get a screaming i 7 4th gen water system going.. new build...
    How can I tell if this heavy copper bit@h will work, cover the cpu, on a 1150 board and 4th gen i 7?
    I suppose I could walk it into a micro center.

    thoughts?

    Well if they sell it for 1155, I'm sure they must have tested the fit on the chip/socket for coverage.

    My lga775 cpu ihs is about the same size as my lga1155 ihs. In fact, it looks identical in size. Die size is another story. That is compared a c2d 6300 to a 2500k.

    well, I realized I had a bunch of really nice danger den stuff, pump, block and a fantastic huge shrouded radiator.. spent small fortune and then left the stuff when some serious life issues took me away from oc as a hobby
    now.. im hoping to salvage some of the parts... and do a new i 7 build out.. thanks.. worst case Ill buy a new block....

    The only thing I would be worried about is the mounting holes for the cpu block. I got a really cheap DD tdx off ebay that was built for lga1155 but has no easy way to mount to other holes. Otherwise, it cooled my 2500k overclocked 4.5ghz really well.


    This is a picture of the lga1366 version. Not exactly a universal cpu block.

    im thinking some type of hard wire braided fishing line etc

    .. or maybe an adapter made of cork.. something flammable
    omg.. its way too late for me to be having a serious conversation.. Im taking it into Micro center Friday am.. and will report back on the fit into a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H which is in open box area

    well thats nice, the holes where a perfect fit on the new 1150 board... not sure how it was designed to mount, but Im sure DD will sell me some clips or bolts

    I didn't think DD sells anything anymore.

    Last I saw they were going out of business, and just trying to sell all their left over shit. Honestly, id get a different block if you want to water cool a current chip. Those DD blocks look like junk.

    Looks and reality are different things.

    The one in the picture I have and used on my 2500k. It is not top of the line performance but is plenty good. Going to an apogee drive II which is a superior water block dropped me 5c only. 5c may seem like a lot in terms of watercooling but going from 60c to 55c is nothing special. Good temps are good temps.

    its a tough call, Im owning this.. and I do not know its crap...
    Looks solid, deep copper and nickel with Lucite topper...
    I know its working as I build a test system before dismantling and storing.. its thus been "used" but never actually installed and tested...
    Ill keep the build notes....
    and
    we
    will
    c

    the issue I suppose is how to test? Really seems a lot of work to drain and reinstall a new block...
    just to test.. then you also own the new block.. hum

    as a side note.. I have the card cooler I installed, that was a trip.. and since its OLD, I wonder what I could use it on to cool, my local go to guy stated " cooling the cpu will solve lots of motherboard heat issues"... its roughly .5 or 3 inches sqaure... I guess I could cool the bottum of the polate for the cpu????
    thoughts ?
    ideas?
    insights?'

    also my new card is NOT needing to be water cooled and the area it would need would be enoumous... 660 TI gigabyte oc
