I have a Antec Kuhler 920 on my rig and am very impressed with the cooling, and I love the Chill Control software! I had a Noctua NHD14 before this, and while it cools well it is HUGE and really limits you on what memory you can do, as well as blocking view of a good bit of the mobo I also worried about the pressure it puts on the Mobo, because it's one heavy monster! I might get into custom water cooling eventually, but I'm not much of a machinist or tool person, and that all sounds kinda complicated. I also am worried about leaking, which I don't have to worry about with the 920.

I'm also a HUGE Model Train guy, and some guys are into building from scratch, me, I love building regular kits or getting prebuilt, I don't have the tools, money or patience to build from scratch. lol

I would not use on AMD as the reflow temp is 20c higher than max temp of the chip.
great for intel tho.

sorry I missed you, I fell asleep lol, I do that!

Um you and samin62, can both learn about water cooling, its not hard at all just costly in the beginning, the first set up is the most expensive as you have nothing so I always suggest starting with a kit now my personal fav. starting kit is Swiftech h20-220 here is a link to one site with it http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=26994 I recommend this one for many reasons main thing is the pump! The laing D5 pump is used by about everyone there are also other choices but this pump seems to last forever! Secondly the CPU block is top notch in every review (in which I am starting to lose faith with reviewers) The Apogee XT is #1 even on this sites water cooling admin's review (best flow and cooling for the price)!

I have owned this kit as well as had a few buy it and they never complained because it was the parts they kept using as they upgraded (not because they had to but because they liked and wanted to) I got a different resivior and also added koolance full cover blocks to my video cards and down the road I put a dam screw through the rad so I needed to get a new one and was going to go for another swiftech as it really did very well before but I got different rads Danger dens (real reason was they had Cross Flow which made installing look nicer) but all'n'all it is the way to go if you are on your PC allot and gaming or you get the Overclocking bug! lol


EDIT PS> B Negative the spec's on the AMD indigo extreme are only written for the Intel ones don't know why but the real re-flow for the AMD one is about 55c~62c mine melted in there somewhere as the temps got to 62c then DROPPED FAST lol, weird seeing that for the first time though! But the spec's are not 20c over the AMD chip trust me, The chip shuts off the system automatically when in the bios if it gets over factory specs,( I have tested that a few times by accident, fired it up with out heat sinks) in fact it has been rumored that you can't ever hurt a chip in the bios only during OS loading, after the bios. I am not a programmer so don't know why but that has always been what was told to me

That explains it for the reflow..Max temp for AMD is 62c,The Intel version would mash your chip
The bios will only save your chip if set at 60c and thats if you remember to enable.

Thanks for the tips and info! That Swiftech is NICE! I think probably it will be my next upgrade, I like Performance PC's too, it's a Toys R Us for Geeks LOL
