Hello Everyone,
I just installed a thermaltake watercooling kit to my pc and was checking the temps of my cpu (Athlon 64 X2 4000+). Iam idleing at 34C and my full load temps are 40C at stock speed. The temps seem to be pretty high with watercooling i think. Shure could use some opinions on this matter regarding the temps. Thanks

Are we talking about the BigWater here?

I've heard much talk around here that with kits like those, you typically get the same results as a high-end air cooling setup.

Yeah, you shouldn't expect much from that bigwater kit, or ANY TT kit for that matter. A lot of it has to do with the fact that it has a single 120mm rad, which will have about the same or less dissipation area as a big HSF that takes a 120mm fan, then you factor in the tiny tubing and inferior pump, and you have a recipe for fail.

Also keep an eye on that waterblock, they are known to crack and give your PC a nice shower
