Swiftech Kits enough to cool a Quad Q6600?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I currently have a Q6600 on an ASUS P5n32-e SLI in a CM Stacker 832 case. I'm planning on getting a WC setup to cool it so I can OC from 2.4 -> 3.2Ghz. It's way to hot right now when I attempt it with air cooling using a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. The extreme seems to be too heavy for it's own good and is slightly leaning when I stand up the case.

I'm looking at the

Swiftech H20-120 kit from Newegg for $149.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108075

but I'm also considering the

Swiftech H20-220 kit from Newegg for $249.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108076

I'm really looking at the H20-120 because I can put the RAD inside the case and I won't have to have a big RAD hanging off the back but I'm concerned about performance with the H20-120 and the Q6600. Will the single 120 RAD be enough or am I gonna be forced to get a 220 RAD and a better pump to cool that Quad?

Any information or opinion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Just so you know, you could probably build your own loop for about $200-250 for just the CPU and it'll be a very nice loop. You'd be able to do great over-clocking at great temps. Let me see if I can find the stuff Ira-K recommended. (He's like the water-cooling guru around here. Basically he's what Chozart is to Intel build recommendations.)

Swiftech Apogee GT $44.99

GT Stealth 360 $62.95

http://www.xoxide.com/swiftech-mcres-micro.html
Swiftech MCRES-Micro Drive Bay Reservoir $17.99

All that adds up to about $225, leaving you $25 for tubing and coolant.

Over all, it's basically a near high-end system. You could swap out the pump for a Laing D5 and save $25 there.

Swiftech H20-120 should do if you're only going to WC the CPU. Swiftech H20-220 if you want to cool both CPU and GPU.

The swiftech h20-220 is a great kit to start working with because its very upgrade friendly for down the line when you feel like buying or feel comfortable getting new gear.

The mp-655 pump is a great pump regardless and the mcr220 rad that comes with it is a great starter rad for what your doing.

It is one of the few kits that most around here would recommend.

Best of luck

Thank you everyone. I appreciate the responses.

Thank NamelessMC, I'll take a look at the parts.

I was thinking of also cooling my north bridge and the H20-120's performance may degrade with the chipset and cpu block. I think at this point i'll take a look at getting the 220 or just build a custom one. I do like the Fuzion by D-tek and that may drive me to just build it myself.

Oh one more thing. Should I go for 1/2" OD or 3/8" OD? I kind of don't like the really fat tubing I see in the pics (1/2" i think) but I also don't want to sacrifice performance. Can anyone chime in on this?

Yeah I think the Fuzion is the best of the new commercial blocks right now...This is a good kit and if you decide you want to go custom yell at us and we will hook you up with parts...

I'm thinking of this same cpu + hsf combo, I guess, its not good enough? I'm assuming your using Arctic silver 5? What fan are you using yate loon or s-flex? If so, which model. I know you need a high CFM for the 120 Extreme. What are your temps currently?
