if you're going for the minimum best effect, a quiet 20mm fan will probably suffice - I'd bet you'd see around a 20ºC drop.

i mean on my radiator. I have two fans, One pushing and one pulling air. Would that cause problems my CPU has well? it's 40-42*c IDLE and it isn't overclocked.
The exact opposite, a push-pull configuration on a WC rad is the best setup. It will drastically reduce temperatures.

Well, In the pic.. The fan you can see is pushing air, And the fan you can somewhat see, is pulling.. so do I need to reverse that? To where it's drawing in air from outside the case?

Also.... Are the 920 i7s worth a damn?

So long as both fans are moving air in the same direction (not fighting each other), two is better than one.


I have an i7-940 - only difference between yours and mine is stock clockspeed. my 940 will only go to 3.8GHz - yours could conceivable go higher, but not with an 80ºC PCH...

Your PCH temps could be a result of lack of airflow in the case. Do you know what the temps were before you put in the water cooling?
