Actually my best friend is a data base admin at Brightwood, and when I visit him, he is usually in the server room, which is quite small. The AC unit is not that loud.

Good stuff! Thanks for the quick replies. I'll read up on those links and now that I'm thinking about it, I'll probably just get the best fan for the money I can and not push the CPU further then I'm comfy with.
By the way, any of you have experience with those thermal-electric fans? I've heard they're not as good as water-cooling, but still perform extremely well for a fan-cooler. Do you think this would be a good alternative? $120+ for a single fan is a bit much, but if it actually works the way they claim I won't mind shelling out the cash for it.

Thanks again.

If you are going to spend 120 on a Air TEC cooler, you might as well either:

spend 65 for an air cooler+fan which cools better

spend 185 on watercooling which cools WAY better

Air TEC doesn't work right. As temps increase, the TEC is less effective and air cannot disapate enough heat for optimal temps. as the TEC becomes less and less effective then it just creates a perpetual heat up to a high load temp

Interesting... I think I'm going to have to avoid water as this box will eventually be on 24/7 when replacing my current server box. This is for personal use so the idea of keeping an AC on all the time as well is a bit more expensive of a solution then I care for.

I just don't trust the chance of a leak or the pump failing and losing cooling to both my cpu and gpu. (gpu being a slightly oc'd 8800gtx; those suckers get HOT.)

I'll check the fan cooling forums for q6600 cooling solutions. Thanks for the suggestions.

lol, everyone when they step into watercooling says that. It is a common misconception, the water is non-conductive, and there is a very low chance of the pump failing, probably about the same as the fan on your heatsink failing..

If pumps failed and water leaks as much as you think it does, why are so many of us on watercooling? Take the plunge and go for it, buy a swiftech kit or assemble it yourself (better idea of the two) with parts that ChielScape suggested and read what Ira-K posted.

24/7 watercooling is great- I have done it for the past 2 years and have loved it. Silence and a lot of headroom for overclocking made the deal for me. With a TEC, it's not so much quiet anymore but heck, I guess that's the tradeoff for supercooling. Going back to standard watercooling, I can enjoy once again the benefits of super-silent cooling at a semi-overclock (3.2Ghz)

It's okay. You're words weren't wasted. I've been seriously considering WC for awhile now, and I just read basically everything Ira-K posted. Good reading.

I think for now tho, I just want a cpu block. I'm not o/cing my 8800 GTS, cuz i really don't see the need right now. No need for the chipset block, and hd blocks seem useless unless you're really working a raptor drive or something.

On newegg and a few other places, ALL I see about almost every Swiftech product is awesome things. So I may go with some random Swiftech stuff.

Any ideas?

PS: Sorry if I'm hijacking, but I consider it more like the pilot jumped out of the airplane, and I'm the passenger that thinks they can still land the plane :-D

EDIT: Start New Thread?

I must be the low chance, 2 danger den pumps in 10 months. Pulled W/C and am now on air. I will prob go back to w/c, now that whe have a shop in town that has w/c parts. B4 the shop opened in my town, I had to wait 1 week to use my computer again or strip it, install stock cooling bracket, re-assemble it. Then when the new pump came in start over again. Just make sure you can get parts locally b4 you start WCing.

Ha. Ha. Ha. Nice one. I fried my X850GTO by spilling water on it. Nice try though. Water is always conductive once it is exposed to air.
