What do you think of this cooler

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Has anybody used this cooler and on a Q6600 do you think it could handle a 3.2 to 3.4 OC? I'm just looking for a simple way to cool it quietly and this looks like it might do the trick for half the price of what I planned on paying.

Thanks in advance!

no. dont use watercooling kits like these. the only kits worth the money are those froms wiftech. teh 250$ ones.
get an ultra 120 extreme instead of this.
or if you really want water cooling, get one of mentioned swiftech kits, but you would preferrably want to configure your own kit.

this is the cheapest kit i would recommend.
with a quad core though, you would see some benefits from a triple radiator.

I wouldn't buy watercooling components from a company that has no experience in watercooling.

Look into some high-end air cooling then, like a

thermalright ultra-120 extreme
tuniq tower
scythe ninja

or the thermalright ifx-14, whenever it comes out

Pair those with some high cfm fans, and you will be good to go

I originally had the Zalman 9700. I prefer the TuniqTower because you can mount several fans easily.

Installation for the Zalman was great. Not thrilled with the TT (installation).
While I'm on the subject, I hate the Typhoons installation/setup.
