The 955 BE has a 125W TDP. You'd have to have one heck of an air cooler to make any contraption that could cool that worth while.

Yes, that could work, but the TDP would still be rather high for that sort of system.
I'd suggest using an evaporative bong cooler to tame that 955BE. That wouldn't require much modification, but it would get you below ambient temps, but not below dew point temps, and it can be built for around 30 bucks.
If it's too much to maintain, more radiators or better fans or both can be used. When looking for radiator fans, you have to pay attention to more than just cfm. For example, scythe slipstreams can push about 110 cfm, but they're low static pressure means they slow down and don't push anywhere near that much when you slap them on a radiator with dense fins. They may have high airflow, but they have low static pressure. You'd be much better off with some high speed panaflo ultra high speed fans which have about twice the static pressure even though their 114.7 cfm airflow rating is only marginally higher.Edited by Tr1ggrhappym0nk - 12/15/09 at 1:41am
