I think so. The finish is a little bad, but you can lap it easily enough. my system used to allow me to go to 1.5V on an E6400 at 3.5 ghz. Basically putting out 154 watts at full draw. It kept that under 45 degree's C. That is with a video card on the loop too (bad idea don't do it with this kit).
Worst comes to worst, you have a water cooler that is silent, it will let you (hopefully not literally) get your feet wet in water cooling.
|I had the bigwater 745. It has a bigger pump so I cant comment on your pump, but I would change out the CPU waterblock for something like an Apogee GT Extreme. They run $49 at newegg. With ambient temps of 75°F my idle temps went down to 35°C and load went down to 46°C. I've since changes out with a custom Swiftech system.|
