Author: Mrs.Cool I've been liquid cooling for 4+ years. This block is the highest quality I've seen yet. I had a koolance block fall apart on my board and observed condensation using the tygon tubing sold by another vendor.
Danger Den sells thicker tubing, which is just right for my setup (no more condensation). More important, this block exceeds my expectations. Also, I'm very happy w/the DD radiator AND MOST DELIGHTED BY THE EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Cooling EVGA'S 8800GTX (831) & in a loop with my FX60, idle~30c to load~40c.
Author: Lord AtTiLAs Wonderfull piece of art. Awesome cooling power. Lowered GTX much more than I expected. Worth every penny.
Author: Core2kx This product was a perfect fit and delivers great cooling performance for the card. This is THE water block to get for the GTX!
Author: Flybye OMG this block is AWESOME!!
Beautiful quality (of course) and it lowered card AND ambient temps over 20C! If you are sick of having your case feeling like the interior of the sun, this is the block to get to cool down that nuclear explosion we all call an 8800GTX.
Author: Bryan B Excellent quality that I've come to expect from Danger Den. From cosmetics to performance, this water block is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for 8800GTX owners!
Author: Joel Anderson You cannot go wrong with this block... paired with the right loop, its heat dispersion is 2nd to none. Not to mention the superb craftsmanship and overall look of the block. Top that off with perhaps the best customer service in the market, and you've got yet another solid, Danger Den product. I'm sold for life!
Author: Wh0079 What can I say about this block? A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever. Definitely holds true for this product! The ease of assembly is a HUGE plus also. This was/(is) (still is just one block at a time) my first attempt at water cooling and I was able to assemble and install with little trouble. I think the only two problems I had were
A. actually getting the initial housing off of the GTX. I was so concerned that I was going to break the card in the process. A quick call to Denís support put my mind at ease and resolved that though. Incidentally, for those like me that have no experience with removing the GTX housing, let it be said that when you are removing the plastic assembly, as long as you have CONFIRMED that you have removed all the screws (screws that hold down the fan itself, not necessary to take off. I know cause that is how paranoid I was; I went ahead and removed them too)! It does take a bit of elbow grease to get it off. Consider all of the places you need to re-apply the thermal compound, that stuff keeps it in place pretty well.
B. The other issue I had was leak testing. Now this, I think should come with the instructions. Because I was so eager to assemble the card, I never did a leak test. My test was to plug it in put a paper towel @ the bottom of the case, check every couple of minutes, and hope for the best.
I did see a topic on leak testing on the forum that I believe suggests submerging the block in water and look for bubbles but I already had put it together by then.
Everything works beautifully now but I do think that there really should be more on that subject beyond a sentence stating that you should Leak test.
I spent a good deal of time searching different forums on the subject but there really isnít a great deal on the subject yet everyone agrees it is a vital step.
NOW I wouldnít even bother writing this mini novel if it wasnít for the bar none, hands down, fantastic customer service/support. I wouldnít even know how great the product was because I would have gone with Zalmanís solution.
Dan, (Mr. Den)? spent more time and effort than I deserved trying to help me with my solution and itís because of that and that alone that I opted to get this block. Even after all his work, I had to go with the Zalman RESERVATOR XT for my pump, radiator, reservoir, and because itís included in the kit, processor block. Even after he gave detailed solutions and learned that I opted for a competitorís product, he continued to be friendly and supportive. Itís because of THAT and nothing else, I felt a sense of ÖwellÖ obligation to get SOMETHING and I am glad I did!
With continuing my water solution build he has given frank, open and honest advise even as far as suggesting that I NOT get a particular block because it was superfluous. That the Striker Extreme does an adequate job in cooling what I thought I should get a block for. How many times do you hear from a business, DONíT spend your money on OUR product, you really donít need it. Itís things like that I respect, gives me a sense that if this person says that I need this type of solution, I am going to tend to take him at his word.
So thanks Den and Dan, you may be costing me hundreds of buck, before all is said and done, but at least I know I am getting the best solution from a staff that will stand behind their products!
Author: Joey Bond i havent ordered it yet but will soon, am just drooling right now
Author: Ripp Easy to install, no leaks, great block. I have an 8800 GTX OC and it was running at 68c idle, it is now running at 42c idle and have yet to hit 50c while playing Crysis demo at very high detail, and high detail, and other games like ETQW. Nice block... BIG BRICK =)
Author: Got Moose Great product, I had been contemplating buying this for a while, and im glad I finally did. It lowered my 8800GTX from 65c idle and 80c+ under load, to 50c idle with 58-60c under load, with an ambient temp of 75f. I have it on a loop with a core 2 duo 6600 with a MCR220 radiator. You do need at lest a dual 120mm radiator, due to the high heat out put of the 8800GTX. Other then that I highly recommend it, great product, and glad I bought it.
Author: George I have 5 BFG 8800GTX OC version cards. They are brand new, never been used. I want to water cool 3 of them and install themon an EVGA X58 FTW mobo and see how they do. I also want to overclock the cards slightly. I like the looks of the waterblock. I can't wait till after the holidays.
