post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
HI I am wondering what type of cooling setup I should use to overclock a Q6600 to 3.2ghz or 3ghz. I am planning on getting a new PC and also wondering if it is advisable to wait for 45nm chips to arrive, I can if I have to wait for a few months

for air cooling the quad, you can get the tuniq tower, probably the best air

the gemin II at a fraction of the cost, im running quad at 3.1ghz 55load 39 idle

or you can save and get water.
as for the 45nm cpu's i dont have much intel on those so wait till someone else responds

i just noticed your out of usa, im sorry you cant order from newegg, but you can use those 2 links for an idea of the 2 im talking about

I just can't wait til all these Quads come in. I've been waiting for this moment for quite some time to pit my Enzotech against other people's temps.

Going to have to have people prove with pics and everything.

TT120 Extreme if you aren't comfortable with trying the Enzo. Dual Fan setup.

wow that's cool (assuming it's this enzo?) neat concept!

Get the thermalright, tuniq, or scythe ninja.

Don't wait for 45nm, upgrade now, those will be much more expensive and might not be out till after the new year.

Yeah I have an Enzotech Ultra.

Right now, the best temps I've seen on Quads are Thermarlight Extreme and Enzotech Ultra.

Knitelife had some supremely low B3 Quad temps with his double-fanned TT120E.

The rule of thumb is to wait the longest you can, then when u really need it make the purchase, theres always something better around the corner.

Thanks for the tips everyone, it sucks I can't order from newegg, I'm from NZ a little country beside Australia. I am new to overclocking and wondering if a bigtyphoon would be sufficient( tiny NZ computer stores don't have everything) to overclock a Q6600 to 3.2ghz or 3ghz. I will also be getting an iCute S901-5G1-BB with a 25cm side fan.
