Yes, exactly.

I'd recommend haveing a look through some of the reviews I linked to a couple of pages back in this thread so you can come to your own conclusions.

I am, and thanks. i seem to get out of one the (linked) threads that the 7900GT is still a good contender... I'm so confused! This is by far harder than to pick memory. I have to do some more research, but one of the things that gets me is the 128 interface on the 8600s.

The 120 Ultra Extreme is out of stock in 2 days. I don't want to bother too much. Just put everything in stock and stay at 2.9G. All stuffs put in case, no need for noisy fans. Idle 29C, full load 38C is fine. 3dmark06 at 133xx for SLI. Dell agent is not able to get a 3007-hc last week. Has to wait for another week.

Last weekend was busy in fixing the third PC (XP2500). Turn out that the Antec 350W is not stable and kill a harddisk. Replaced both, actually overkill the system by putting a Enermax 600W in.

I know this is kind of off topic, but I'm looking at water cooling options, since my e6400 @ 3.2ghz currently idles at 40-44C with coretemp. I'd like to be quite a bit cooler than that. My current CPU cooler is the Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro, which I am fairly impressed with, but I am now looking at a Corsair Nautilus 500 system, link is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181004

Any comments on this system, or any other water cooling solution for about $150?

I wouldn't risk it if your Chakra is the type that has a 250mm intake fan on the chassis side panel.
Why not?

Due to the sheer height of the Tuniq when it is installed onto the motherboard, you may find that you cannot put the chassis side panel on if there is a large 250mm intake fan installed on it. I can't even fit a small 80mm fan to my side panel with the Tuniq in my system. You should have no probelms installing a Tuniq into an Enermax Chakra, provided its the version that doesn't have the large intake fan on the side panel.

Hey y'all,
Check this out:

http://www.mwave.com/mwave/viewspec....3&RSKU=BA23853

http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C...1/cl-p0401.asp

You may love it or just hate it. Me loves it!

I wonder how it performs though. I could find just this short review:

http://www.rbmods.com/Articles/Therm...pucooler/1.php

Edit: A guy at Newegg says it dropped the temps by ~5C over Zalman 9700 Impressive if correct...
post #1170 of 5659
Cogno, luv your QX6800! Wish I could affor it

Are you using the 9700 or water cooling for overclocking?
