Liquid Cooling Core 2 Quad - Page 2

post #11 of 34
I think if you got the right 120mm fans then it wouldn't be that big of a noise increase. If you have a BT with a stock fan there are difenitely quieter fans out rthere, and 2 120mm fans would be pretty quite on a low setting. And would definitely cool better than a reserator, which I have heard nothing good about.

yes I saw the "?" in his post..
It was the content of the question that didn't add up.

Ninja_Boy: Anyways I don't get it becuase in one post your saying you have quality wc parts, then you say you've never seen a wc rig in person.. My opinion is if your getting a chip that nice don't use a reserator to cool it. Nobody else has reported any temps with a reserator and a C2Q at 3.0ghz so theres no way of knowing..

But the temps reported using other chips and a reserator were not to impressive so I wouldn't bother with it. The only reserators I like are at frozen cpu because they sell a shroud for it with a type of fan to blow across them. http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/...ors-Page1.html

Quality WC Parts? I have quality cooling parts. Low RPM Fans, good airflow, silence. And I know nobody has Quad + Reserator, that's why I want to try it. People have the Reserator (any model) and I wanted to see there temps with a CPU Cooler (Big Typhoon, Tuniq Tower, Zalman 9700, etc.) vs. the Reserator. Because, if I see a 6C drop when switching to Liquid Cooling then I can guess my temps with a Reserator. Example:
"I ran 38C with my Big Typhoon, yet ran 34C when I switched over to a Reserator, same clock, same voltage" Then, when I install a Big Typhoon on my Quad, when I get it, I can see "Oh, I'm getting 37C idle, if I get a Reserator I can get 3-4C lower when at idle." That's all I was wondering, also, if the Reserator had the cooling power to keep everything nice and cool when I overclock to 3.0GHz.

AND, if you looked in my System Specs I have an AMD Athlon64 X2 4400+. I was wondering because I'm getting a Q6600 in March, when they are $500. And I'm not showing off, I'm trying to create a balance of performance and silent so I'm asking if I should get a Zalman Reserator, Air Cooling, or a Custom H2O Kit. Sorry if it sounded like I was braging, I was simiply asking a question. Just wondering, where does it say I have experience with a Custom Build?

Simple Question: Could I reach 3.0GHz with the Reserator or no?
I wouldn't want to see the temps if you did. I'm going to say yeah, you prob could, but seriously...the Reserator is a POS.

its not a POS, it's just not aimed at overclockers - its aimed at person that wants a super silent PC, but doesnt need extreme cooling, and it does that rather well!

So, if no Reserator what are my other options? Air or Liquid. CPU Only.

Thanks!

Depending on the heat it puts out when you get it to 3.0 you might be able to. But I say no to the reserator. Reserators in my opinion are less efficient than radiators because only the water on the outside wall can transfer heat while the rest stays warm. Radiators channel the water increasing the surface area for maximum heat dissipation. Thats one of the main reasons the temps from reserators are not all that great for overclocking.

btw. im not tryin to be a @ss at you, I just wanted to know if its a serious question. This still doesn't mean we know for sure if it will work as good as you hope.

I still vote that you watercool though

If I get Liquid Cooling it's going to need to be a:
-Zalman Reserator 1 V2
-ThermalTake Symphony
-SilverStone Tundra Housing
or other external setups because I currently have no room for anything.

I guess you don't like the idea of mounting a dual or tripple radiator on the top of your case. What about a seprate radiator box, kind alike a slush box.

I could mount a 2x120mm radiator on the top of my case, use a Koolance 5.25" pump / reservior and get a nice Zalman or Danger Den CPU Water Block.
