Dual core water cooling question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I hope someone will be kind enough to answer this for me.

I've ordered myself all the bits I need for a computer, including a Athlon 64 4400+ X2 processor and a Asus A8N32-deluxe mobo (socket 939).

I want to get water cooling for the CPU to start with and I wanted to know what cpu water blocks can I use? If a cpu water block says it supports socket 939, does that mean it will work on a dual core?

Now I'm pretty sure you only need one cpu water block right? Confusion hit me after looking at Swiftechs website mentioned having to get 2 apogee blocks to support dual core.

Will a kit like this work for my X2 processor?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you only need one waterblock for a dual core. But, I would look around for a kit with an Apogee because it is much better than that one in your link. Btw, welcome to the forums!

Comming from the same site you link to.

yeah, that apex ultra kit is a great one! I pieced together a custom setup that I should hopefully be installing within a couple days (still waiting for parts) but I used an apogee block.

Cheers for replying guys

I got all my other bits coming next week so I'll hold out buying it till I've got everything (and the better kit you linked to is in stock). And that leads me to one other question: will my processor come with a heatsink and fan to keep me going till I sort out the WC?
