Intimidator CPU-GPU-Chipset Water Blocks Review

Cooling/Water Cooling by piotke @ 2004-04-16

Now that water cooling systems are becoming more popular, you'll find a lot of retail solutions. Most of them are high priced and offer only average performance. Building the setup yourself is an option, but getting the blocks is the most difficult part I think. Good performance for a decent price...
This week I've been testing a new revision of a set of warter blocks from Frigus Engineerings. Blue powah!

CPU block

Intimidator S-Uni V1.0 Blue

Frigus Engineering’s new line of anodized alloy/copper blocks are highly efficient, combined with low weight and an excellent price. It has a good-looking anodized copper top with a full copper base.

This block fits right on the new AMD 64 and the Intel P4 series and comes with:

  • Anodized Alloy top
  • full copper base
  • 10mm Brass hose fittings
  • Hold down material

  • The installation of this block is not very difficult. The hold down material is very similar to those use by others. I will be testing this block with a powerful and hot Athlon 64.

    The overall finishing is close to perfection; the base has no mirror look, but is decently enough finished.

    I have some pictures for you, but there is nothing more left for me to say about this block.

    Ow, I almost forgot, for those who might be interested, here is a rendered image from the inside of the block.
