I'm getting ready to do the final assembly on my new E6600 + Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 rig. I'm watercooling the CPU & GPU, but I'm wondering if it's worth my time & money to w/c the 965P chipset as well. Does anyone know how hot the 965P gets, will I need to overvolt it to push an E6600 to 4.0GHz + territory, or is the stock heatsink + small fan good enough?<br><br>
I'm looking at either the <a href="http://www.crazypc.com/products/93911.html" target="_blank">Danger Den MAZE4</a> or the <a href="http://www.crazypc.com/products/9390.html" target="_blank">Swiftech MCW30</a> if it's necessary.

Don't think you need water cooling for the chipset.<br />
<br />
However, for 4.0 GHz, you generally need phase. Water will get you to like 3.8 GHz. Just stay below 60C on that CPU.

That is the one I got for my 965 and at 100% utilization (dual-folding and the 6600 is oc'd to 3.3 GHZ, RAM to 1.1GHZ) the 965 stay's at a comfy 30c.
