Default CPU Waterblock Roundup for Core i7 in the works

Part one is online at http://www.madshrimps.be/gotoartik.php?articID=931

-------------
Our reviewer Leeghoofd who previously tested the Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultima Water-Cooling Kit is preparing a larger roundup of CPU water blocks designed and compatible with Intel's latest hot running Core i7.

The current list of contestants is as follows:

Enzotech LUNA CPU Water Block


Enzotech Phoenix CPU Water Block


EK Supreme 1366 CPU Water Block


Swiftech Apogee GTZ CPU Water Block

More CPU water blocks might be added to the list as we wait for samples to arrive.

Extra addition is this fancy looking EK D5 Pump Cover (to allow 10/13mm tubing)

Can you include the Koolance CPU350, the XSPC v20 v3, the D-Tek Fuzion V2, the Enzotech Saphhire and the Cuplex DI?
Thanks.

We are trying to get as many as possible, but it's not always that we ask that we will get them... more blocks will be added but each company will send it's best blocks...


EDIT : OCZ also confirmed they are sending a review sample

Not yet, but all blocks have been tested and the reviewer is working on the article. Iirc, the deadline has been moved since we got some feedback for and from the manufacturers.

Part 1 is up soon mate, sorry for the big delay, but there have been some misshippings ( I got some S775 blocks instead of 1366), then there were controversial results. After some chit chat with the manufacturers testing was redone in a different way (yet some results remain unchanged) but the testing time was doubled now ( 2 different pump speeds,... )

Part 2 will include more european blocks (from alphacool,...), this ofcourse if all goes well with the shipment this time
