2x40mm rad enough for an i3 2105?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
is a 2x40mm rad enough for a normal stock i3 2105? Reason I have to use the 2x40 is because it is a ssf build and there simply isnt room sad-smiley-002.gif this would be the rad I'd use http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_336&products_id=22275

edit: is one enough? it seems that there is little heat output from an i3

Use stock cooling. It will perform better than this radiator will. You are going to need outrageously loud 40mm fans to push air through those fins. Really not worth it IMO.

A good heatsing/fan will work better and quieter.

Keep the stock cooler. That i3 can't be OC'd, and they do not generate a lot of heat even on full load. No need to go water on it.
