3 radiators or 5? :D

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
ive currently got a coolermaster stacker with 3 radiators, the cooling performance is awesome as you can see, 2.66 too 4.1. i have enough room to put two more radiators in but im not sure if its worth it, my cpu currently idles at 33 degrees and temps are not a problem, but it would be nice to go for a bgger target, i have to increase my vcore rediculously to get my cpu any higher and my temsp to start to rise quickly, anyone know how much difference it might make to have two more radiators?

Not enough difference to make it worth while. Your time & money is better spent getting a better CPU. Try getting an E6300 & seeing what you can do with it. Regardless of what you can take the E6300 to, you'll get far better performance from it than your 805.

I think you'd probably be better off to buy one triple radiator, and get rid of the 3 you hvae...Do you know anything about pressure, and flow speed?

Either way....idle has nothing to do with it, and load is where the temps are at....

How big are the rad's you have now 120, 240 , 360 ? If you have 3 120's or something you might want to get a couple of 240's you would have less restriction and get better temps..

Intel's 975x chipset does support Conroe. I may be mistaken, but even though the printed info says it doesn't support it, I believe any 975x board should support it.

Hey Nasgul, get yer Intel lovin' butt in here & help out!

i currently have a triple radiator, sorry ive jsut been talking about my temps in another thread, probably shouldnt assume ppl have been reading them, 33idle and around 40 on load, really havnt got any temp problems at all at the moment im just constantly searching for better performance without spending too much. been thinking about a diff cpu, like a 940 but i would like to be more confident about getting a decent overclock when i receive it. my current cpu has a locked multiplyer so im limited with my ram speeds.

The 805 actually has the best OC potential of the bunch, due to its high multi and 533 base freq. I don't believe a 940 would really help.

975 is the chipset for conroe, all conroe mobo's use that chipset atm, im sure that if asus wanted to they could make a bios update that enabled the cpu, however its in their favour to make us buy new motherboards.....and i currently have a triple radiator in the top of my case, and only room for a double on the front

yes yoru right, the 805 deffinatley has the best OCing potential but i have seen a few ppl hitting the 5ghz barrier with a 940, however with no real info on the overclocks i dont want to spend the money and find i cant even comapre with my current performance. my issue with the 805 is that the multiplyer is locked which restricts alot of headroom with the ram.
