System that can handle 4.0 GHz Pentium D ???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
In theory if I get some cash and want to go the distance building it custom of coarse then what kinda parts do I need? Need this for my sig rig below and never gonna get WCing for the GPU maybe better for NB/SB (active?). These CPUs get very hot after about 3.2 GHz, would bigger lines be better or not? Gonna run a T-Line at first maybe im cheap ? Only going to use this as test/benchmark rig for the 805 dual-core.......or maybe others?????????????

How much are you looking to spend?

The rig in my sig put out as much or more heat than yours and is cooled by a D-tek Fusion water block, a Thermochill PA120.3 radiator and a Swiftech MCP655 pump. I use 1/2" ID tubing, but a lot of people like 7/16". I've never tried 7/16" but I hear that performance is similar and they are easier to route through your case because they're thinner.

There is also the Hardware labs BIX 480 radiator which may have slightly higher temperatures than the PA120.3 with low CFM fans (Ira-k please correct me if I'm wrong), but performs better with high CFM fans.

I would have to recommend at least a two fan radiator and ideally three, otherwise your loop may have difficulty dealing with that much heat and air cooling might be the best price/performance option.

A lot of people around here have far more experience and knowledge with water cooling than I do, so see what they have to say.
