Have you tried it with the stock midplate? I was just curious what you thought between stock and thequad midplate.
Good CPU air cooling is pretty good these days. You have to want to watercool to do it. When I was air cooling, I just wasn't satisfied with the lack of customization. You can buy a TRUE or IFX then all that's left is lapping and fan selection. I got bored, water has alot more to it and that's the part I like.
Also air can't compete with cooling GPUs and other smaller hot stuff. Chipsets these days are getting HOT, and I don't care to much for the mega chipset/mosfet coolers. Much more interesting moving the heat out of the case and into some "way bigger than necessary" radiators..Edited by Martinm210 - 5/23/08 at 3:51pm
