Liquid Cooling the 2500k

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've currently got my 2500k running at 4.5Ghz and I want to clock it higher, to around the 4.8 - 5 mark. Now i know you wont get this out of most chips, and a 550W power supply feeding what i have. I currently run a hyper 212+ for cooling it with dual fans both on average about 1700 RPM. I am considering getting the Thermaltake 850i Prowater for a liquid cooling solution. So basically my idle temps for core are 29-32 degrees, at load 50-54 degrees, The inital CPU runs at 69 degrees idle, according to speedfan. Basically i want to know, is there any point in stepping up to the ProWater? and, some tips on getting to 5Ghz on my board would be nice, not a MUST though

I wouldt bother with the thermaltake, just get a rasa rx240 kit. You get a better block, pump and rad for not much more money, and its much more expandable
