Best Water-cooling solution money can buy - Page 3

Thread Starter 
I think I will after all go with an Intel Xeon X5680 as recommended by some Intel guys for having been made from better components hence has a higher temperature resistance.

Go with a 2600K... thats gonna run cooler and require less voltage than the chips youve mentioned.

The Xeon is around £1300 and has a TCase at 78.5C, while the 2600K is around £300 and has a TCase at 72.6C, so I cannot see how it can run cooler or take more resistance than the Xeon chip. Also, the 2600 has a lower Max Memory Bnadwidth
Once again I do stress, that money is not an issue in getting the best performance out of the box.

What exactly are you going to be using this machine for? That would really help clarify exactly what would be *best* for you.

It will be a machine that will execute a single command line application, hence no graphics cooling is needed, so the CPU speed is paramount here. The app will have a 5-10% load on a single core of the processor.
I already have a test rig with i7-980X and have got it to around 5.25Ghz with Coolit Freezone Elite, but am now trying to build a production machine hence price is not an issue.

Thanks

Its a proprietary application that I have developed. That is not of importance here. It is only the load that the app will place on the CPU, and that will be around 5-10% on a single core.

The SandyBridge CPU's higher maximum VID (vcore) and lower TDP make the chip both cooler running and more resistant to voltage.

What voltage did the 980x need for 5.25 GHz? Was it 100% prime stable?

5 to 10% per core..... thats not very much load again i say 2600k as clearly this isnt very cpu intensive and they are faster clock for clock than the cpu's youve mentioned.
