This is a simple guide on how to clean the D-Tek Fuzion CPU Block, PRIOR to installation.

1) This is the standard D-Tek block with the standard D-Tek barbs fitted.

Posted Image

2) First thing I do is remove the standard barbs
Posted Image

3) Flip the block over and you'll see the 4 hex head bolts.
You'll need an Allen key or a Hex head screwdriver to remove these.


Posted Image

4) Remove all 4 bolts, usually the bolts even have some plastic sludge on them.
I usually clean off as much as possible with some tweezers and some small pointed scissors.


Posted Image

5) Remove the bottom half of the plastic base from the top and remove the rubber O-Ring.
You'll notice that the O-Ring has excessive amounts of rubber from the manufacturing process.
This can potentionally get into your water loop and clog up your pump or another component.

6) Remove the excess rubber from the O-Ring, it will just peel off easily.

Posted Image

7) Return the O-Ring to its correct position, take care to make sure that it stays in place when you put the block back together.
Screw the bolts back in nice and tight and fit some barbs.

I tend to change the D-Tek barbs to the EK ones as its a little easier to fit hose clips over 1/2" tubing as they don't have as big a lip.

Thats a great little guide Marcus =D> Thats the kind of guide i would need to see.
I would'nt have thought the thing would need to be cleaned, so this could save someone gunking up their rig. or worse. :?

also, it looks like you could also get a petter performance from the block by doing what you suggest.

Best thing about it mate is that's actually your CPU block so you know it's been done properly ;) ;)

yeh thats the right way round... make sure the O-Ring underneath the middle piece is still in place (theres 2 o-rings altogether, one on top of the middle and one under)

Na you shouldn't need PTFE on because they have O-Rings fitted already.
Use it as an extra pre-caution if you like though.

Im inclined to agree actually though take take if using it on acrylic blocks as if you put too much on you can end up damaging the threads when screwing the barbs in.

But yeh any metal - metal contacts I probs would use it.
