Water Cooling i7 930 [1366]

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

It's getting stupidly hot here in Australia to the point where my PC is running just below T-Case IDLE and at around 80-95 C under load.

So, I wanna get some effective CPU cooling, without it costing an arm and a leg, while I do my new PC build.

Been looking at:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_23_845&products_id=17961

But not sure, since this is my first experience with water cooling.

Any ideas?

If you don't want to search for quality used water cooling parts, or spend a lot of money on new water cooling parts (or are not particularly keen on undertaking a full water loop), then the Corsair H100 would be a solid choice for you. I live in Hawaii, granted not as hot as Australia, but it is a tropical climate, and I run a i7 930 on a H100 here. I have ~25-27C ambient temps, and my CPU never breaks 63C on any core during prime95 or IBT. You could try that out, or try one of the water cooling kits from XSPC for ~$250. The latter would probably offer you better temps (depending on the size kit you pick), but I think both could end up serving you well with the climate your CPU must endure. Good luck. thumb.gif

Thanks for the insight.

I guess I will probably go with the Corsair, I have been using them for a long time for my memory and PSU so I trust them.

NZXT Kraken x60 is a better value, if its released in your country.

Sorry to bump an old post, but they no longer sell the corsair.

Would this be adequate: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_23_845&products_id=22163
