One question about WC for 3930k

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I've been looking through many forums, and found out that many people who installed WC and OC their i7-3930k to 4.5Ghz have the minimun temperature of 35C, so im not shure if i should upgrade my Zalman CPU cooler to WC. My idle temperature is 29-32C



So, im just interested which WC system should i buy (if i should).

Im looking at these:

1) Zalman CNPS20LQ
2) Thermaltake Bigwater A80
3) Corsair CWCH100i - not shure about this one (dont want to mount this outside of the body - my is GMC H80)

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Swiftech H220 or H320, if you are only going with pre-built systems.

I understand, but just so you know, there is a chance that the smaller cheaper AIO units wont do any better at cooling than top of the line air coolers.
