You're right, he is. Sorry Austin, forgive me, I'm out of my mind right now.

Sorry PB, looks like we're full.

It's easy to forget about him since he doesn't post much on here lol.

that's ok I'll just stay around if someone's "Defecation hits the Oscillation" like mine did, and I still don't have an answer to my water-block question.

For the I7 the SWIFTECH APOGEE GTZ is pretty good Block and should last a few years

But in all honestly there is no such thing as future proof in the world of computers. You never know. Intel and AMD could come out with a new socket tomorrow and discontinue everything for their LGA 775, LGA 1156, LGA 1366, AM2, AM2+ and AM3 sockets at the same time and then all of us that have those sockets would no longer have the ability to upgrade our processors without upgrading our motherboards and probably ram too.

Nate and that is why we are here for, let those upgrades begin!!!
post #1127 of 11077
Oh you all know me well enough by now to know that if I had the money that this computer would probably already have a bunch of new upgrades in it lol. Of course I would start with the motherboard and go from there. I know I want a CPU upgrade and I want to SLI at least 2 way but probably more lol. I will buy myself a nice new birthday present this coming year in February lol.

True, but if you get a block like the apogee gt, all that is needed is a new hold-down/black plate(cost 15 + shipping) instead of a hole new block. I just wish I had an end-mill and a cnc router, plus the money to make custom parts whenever I like.

If I could start/ get into a business where I could just make one off rigs I would be in heaven (along with every one here I think).

That's not necessarily true. It all depends on where the die is on the processor. I mean it would cool any processor I guess with the correct back plate but it would just be mediocre at best as such a generalized cooler. The coolers that work the best are the ones that are designed for a specific processor socket. That way the cooler is designed to pull the most heat from the hottest spots on the processor. But in a way you are right. It will work as a cooler but you won't hit high OC's on just any processor with it you know what I mean?

That makes total sense, but I haven't seen the specific design you talk about( other than custom made blocks) just the standard small pin and channel designs. This could just be my fault for not paying attention to the market.

Like I said in the end of my last post I want an end-mill so I can make my own stuff and not have to try to find the right product by wading through everyone's opinions
