Default Danger Den TDX Water Block Preview

We take an in-depth look at the latest water block from Danger Den; the TDX features the same performance increasing nozzles as the RBX but improves on its design. Tested on an Athlon 64 setup we take a look at what it can do!

erm,

The silver block is NOT sterling silver (92.5%), it is very pure 99.995% silver. Considerably more expensive and also quite a bit higher thermal conductivity than sterling silver.

Stirling silver is probably no better than copper, if not worse given the high concentration of impurities. Stirling is for jewellery. Anything requiring thermal properties should stay well clear of stirling silver (take note aquacomputer and you REALLY shouldn't be charging more for a sterling block than DD does for the near pure silver TDX)

Couldn't you update it again, and remove the line saying, that it's good to have the water stagnate in the waterblock? It's not good! It reduces the effeciendy of the waterblock, if the water stays in the block.

You haven't corrected the 925 sterling silver in the first paragraph...

And indeed, stagnating water is bad... Just say that turbulences increase heat absorbtion by the water from the copper...

PS: first time I read article, as I had no time before

Oh, and you should know the TDX is less restrictive as the RBX, which makes another good point for buying it...

Don't you have a Cascade to compare to? Would be nice to know how they are up to that old design of cathar... (which might be a bit too restrictive in my watercooling setup which needs to be finished: Tygon always escapes my grasp )

talking to me?
I'm not the Author remember. Liquid3d is planning on doing a follow-up which includes comparisons to the German WBblock and the RBX; that's why this is a "pre"-view
