You had a crappy passive cooler then. Stock won't cut it half the time. Any air aftermarket chipset cooler should do fine unless it isn't properly installed. I am using a Jing Ting Chipforce cooler without the fan with 1.6V on my NB and my temps are at 36C full load with 80F ambient.

are you using speedfan to read your NB? ira-k recommended it to me a while back and I'm wondering what some of the other readings are I'm seeing..

I'm using ITE Smart Guardian. It's an app for DFI boards and is considered to be fairly close on your temp readings.

All very nice info, this has turned into more of an argument though lol, everyone has the prefernces if they want a nb cooler let them have it it wont heat the water that much imo (although I know very little about water) hehe well thanks for sheding some light on this matter, the only thing left is to overcome laziness and pull out everything again to install the water blocks after I buy w/c :-P

It isn't as much about the heat that the NB adds to the loop it's more about the restriction of the added block that will lower your flow.

I never stated that it wouldn't add restriction...it will..But I will make one statement more flow does not mean better cooling. I really do not have the time to go into the heat transfer problem right now, but there is a balance here that needs to be maintained. If you have sized your components correctly then this issue is a non-issue. So I have to ask....Why not?
