Was getting really annoyed with my ****ty Q6600 so i got my misses to buy me a thermaltake watercooling unit and a Q9650
nice u might think

errrrr no

Just checked my motherboards CPU support and the Q9650 is unsupported, its GA-965P-DS3 REV 1.0


Would it still work or would it not even boot up ? the bios im running is F13o Beta.. Dont think she'll buy me a new motherboard either

Both the chip and water cooling are coming tuesday, not told her yet it wont work in my machine.. she'll kill me

Q9650 = £200
Thermaltake water kit = 90

thats only £200 off a i7 bundle on ebay .. should of gone with that now

the thermaltake set is worse then the problem of your mobo in my opinion

you could always change the Q9650 for a Q9550 if that is supported

the TT kit should be sold instantly (or changed for a good aircooler)
anyways, good luck, and sorry about the Q9650 fiasco

it sucks that you can't change it.
but you could always try and sell it again (maybe with a profit
)
and the TT kit isn't good for cutting down on fan noise...
the TT kits are notorious for leaking and cracking...so i would get rid of it soon

and if you want to wc everything you need a strong pump, good block, and a big rad...so...no TT

hope this explains it a bit

Lies, gigabytes website says my proc isnt supported and yet here i am.
