I had a Zalman 9900 (I think) and my temps dropped 6ish c maybe. I do like it, but in the interest of full disclosure I will be upgradingto a WC loop in the future. Just don't want you to have unrealistic expectations.
Yeah, good point. What should I expect from a Q6600 at 3.6GHz in IBT / LinX?

Oh really? So should I invest in a Silver Arrow / Megahalems / TRUE?

Personally I would, especially if you can get one cheaper than what the H70 costs. But if you decide to go with a TRUE I'd recommend the Venomous X instead.
You can't go wrong with the Megahalems though

But yeah it seems I have a choice: Silver Arrow / Mega OR H70

It is up to you, what do you really want; the best possible temps or real good temps but with some more case room and possibly considerably less noise?

I just want the sex factor of the H70 lol

I'll grab the H70 and report back my temps around first week of January

My temps should be better than what they are now:

E5200 @ 3.2GHz

Idle: 40c
Load: 93c

H70, never cut corners, if you want all in one cooling, get the best.

I have the H70 so I can definitely not be called a hater, but it is not the best. It is a great solution and it's quiet and innovative/creative but a Silver Arrow or Noctua or _____ with proper fans will beat it by a few c everyday of the week.

OP - You will definitely see an improvment and if you spring for the GT's you will start to notice all of the other noises your comp makes since you won't hear your CPU cooler AT ALL
