Single 120mm Rad. will it cool a CPU? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
okay well if you want to know the nitty gritty of it all...check the rad to see if it has enough heat dis. to be effective enough to cool the cpu...i doubt that you will see temps any lower than temps that you would see with a fan...because the dissipation of heat isn't great enough...also has to deal with how fast your pump is pumping fluid through the hosing..

Hi,

I'm using Thermochill P120.1 rad with my Q6600 and it works well, however i'm not overclocking and my fan/rad is located outside the case. If you plan on overclocking, you may want to move up to larger rad.
