DangerDen | Maze 4 Water Blocks
Aww, ain’t they cute?! Just look at those babies! Owning a product from a company like Danger Den is much like owning a trophy, but unlike a trophy–you get to take it off the shelf and play with it. Its products are, in all respects, among the best looking and designed blocks on the market. It is always a pleasure to review the workmanship of one of its fine waterblocks. It has been in the water cooler business for some time now, offering safe and affordable water blocks for our processor cooling needs.
So again we have an opportunity to have a look-see at its latest and greatest water block to hit the market: the Maze4. Mainly designed for the Intel Pentium 4 based processors, it comes in two flavors. First, the Pure-Poly topped block, and the CT (Copper Topped) water block. Both use the same internal Maze4 design, 1/2″ fittings, and get the same pressure-tested quality check before shipping out—which makes for a good feeling once it arrives at your home/office.

When I think of Danger Den, or talking with colleagues about its products, there is one thing that sticks out about its water blocks; Sexy! Its water blocks show the effort and design that went into them, and that’s something I’m sure they’re all very proud of down there. No other water block on the market offers what these guys have. On top of this, they are very well built to ensure a leak-proof environment. That alone makes its blocks worth every penny.
Earlier I mentioned that each block is tested before shipment. What this means is that each block is tested for durability and leaks at 85 psi. If you’re not familiar with 85 psi, it basically means a lot of pressure applied to the inside of the block by a hydraulic pump pumping air into the water block. If a block fails that test, well, you know where it ends up then.
Another great feature is the lapping. Each block is machined perfectly and lapped to 600grit before shipping to ensure a very flat surface with as few pores as possible.
