Stick with the zalman.

Or if you have an extra 10 bucks to spend, get this pump deal before they go OOS for good and start a GOOD watercooling loop.

Thanks i think i have to save up a little more money then i will start a good loop.

i can get my e4400 to 3.6 ghz running orthos but as soon as i do temps jump up to 75c. thats a little to hot lol. all i need is a good cooling loop and i will probably get that running stable.


+ rep for the effort.
+rep to dirty too for the suggestion

I had the...let's say opportunity...to test this cooler, and it performed as well the stock cooler on my Q6600.

120mm RAD with a crappy fan, and the CPU block also is the pump, and somehow is still smaller than other CPU blocks

stick with the zalman.

I loaded (1.2375v, 2.4ghz) at around 65c (ish) with the aquagate.
