Just be wary of leaks. don't want to fry your stuff.
I appreciate that TheNovices. But remember who you are dealing with here. El Cheapo.
Mr. El Cheapo Foldo. Mr. Rubberband man. My only goal is to keep the core's folding even after my room gets very hot like it did yesterday. Air cooling just couldn't keep up.
In keeping with my El Cheapo tradition, I settled on a Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Liquid CPU Cooler, for Intel Socket 775. It has a heat sink. Tubing. Radiator and a pump. That's it. No flashing lights. No glow in the dark coolant. Total - $66.99 from Directron.com
P.S. They better throw in my rubber bands or I'm gonna be ticked!
EDIT: Oh sorry Mega! I ended up going my usual El Cheapo route. But, I'm definitely looking at the one you recommended for my MAIN system. thanks again
