ive currently got a coolermaster stacker with 3 radiators, the cooling performance is awesome as you can see, 2.66 too 4.1. i have enough room to put two more radiators in but im not sure if its worth it, my cpu currently idles at 33 degrees and temps are not a problem, but it would be nice to go for a bgger target, i have to increase my vcore rediculously to get my cpu any higher and my temsp to start to rise quickly, anyone know how much difference it might make to have two more radiators?

Not enough difference to make it worth while. Your time & money is better spent getting a better CPU. Try getting an E6300 & seeing what you can do with it. Regardless of what you can take the E6300 to, you'll get far better performance from it than your 805.

arg, i wish, Asus buggered me over, ive got a P5WDG2-e premium with a 975x chipset... it doesnt support conroe.......not the happiest guy in the world about it but i cant afford a new mobo and cpu.. you are right though, it wont make enough difference to be worthwhile, im jsut such a cooling buff, colder the better!

I think you'd probably be better off to buy one triple radiator, and get rid of the 3 you hvae...Do you know anything about pressure, and flow speed?<br />
<br />
Either way....idle has nothing to do with it, and load is where the temps are at....

</div> How big are the rad's you have now 120, 240 , 360 ? If you have 3 120's or something you might want to get a couple of 240's you would have less restriction and get better temps..

</div> Intel's 975x chipset does support Conroe. I may be mistaken, but even though the printed info says it doesn't support it, I believe any 975x board should support it. <br />

i currently have a triple radiator, sorry ive jsut been talking about my temps in another thread, probably shouldnt assume ppl have been reading them, 33idle and around 40 on load, really havnt got any temp problems at all at the moment im just constantly searching for better performance without spending too much. been thinking about a diff cpu, like a 940 but i would like to be more confident about getting a decent overclock when i receive it. my current cpu has a locked multiplyer so im limited with my ram speeds.

The 805 actually has the best OC potential of the bunch, due to its high multi and 533 base freq. I don't believe a 940 would really help.

975 is the chipset for conroe, all conroe mobo's use that chipset atm, im sure that if asus wanted to they could make a bios update that enabled the cpu, however its in their favour to make us buy new motherboards.....and i currently have a triple radiator in the top of my case, and only room for a double on the front<br />
<br />
yes yoru right, the 805 deffinatley has the best OCing potential but i have seen a few ppl hitting the 5ghz barrier with a 940, however with no real info on the overclocks i dont want to spend the money and find i cant even comapre with my current performance. my issue with the 805 is that the multiplyer is locked which restricts alot of headroom with the ram.

<b>nicemates</b>; so far everyone is right........1-don't bother chaning your cooling system (it cost more $$$) and 2-Get a Core 2 Duo E6300 and P965 Mobo. <br />
<br />
And the Asus P5WDG2-e premium unfortuantely does not support a Core 2 Duo CPU. <br />
<br />
I think you should leave it alone because the higher you go in the Vcore, the more likely you're to damange your CPU despite the low temps. I see no point in going any higher and again, if you want better performance, fallow the advise of getting a Core 2 Duo CPU along with a P965 board.

You might wont to look at these rad's for a upgrade, they are killing the BIX, made by the same folks...I haven't been able to find them anywhere for sale yet but it shouldn't be long....I hope...<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><a href="http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/gtx/gtx240.htm" target="_blank">:::: Hardware Labs - Gen Two ::::</a>

thanks for the advice everyone. i think your all right, btw i know my motherboard doesnt support conroe, thats the problem! i think i will save up and think about a new mobo and conroe, i think i will go for a 6600. would love to see how far i can push it with watercooling.

I would get the 6400, overclocked it only has a 3% difference from the 6800 max overclock. Check out tomshardware review!
