Ok, so my room temp is around 23c. My idle core air cooled temps is around 40c with a e6300 @ 2.33 stable. load is 47c

How close to room temps can WC get me?

What setup would?

Thanks

You're actually pretty close. It would depend on what his WC loop consisted of, but with water you'll be really close to room temperatures with the right setup.

Even still, if you cheaped out on a few components of the loop, you would get better temps than what you are now.

How much would you want to spend?

I'm thinking that $400 would be the max, but less is better as long as it doesn't mean less quality.

I like coolit's freezone setup, but I have heard that there may be pump problems. So I was considering tec cooling combined with water cooling, but coolit seems to be the only one building it?

I have a Opty 165 which runs hotter than a Core 2 Duo.

My room temps are about 23-24C. My idle temps are usually .5C above ambient. My loads temps are like 30-31C. Oh, plus my PC is nearly silent.

With a good loop, you can get your temps way down.

If you build a custom kit, with say, a Dtek block, a killer pump, a 3x120mm rad and all, i've seen people get as cool as ambients on idle.

for the love of god and all that is holy, don't get the freezone.

look around the forums and you can find all sorts of information on good components

you could use these components for instance:

http://www.moddersmart.com/index.php...duct_id=138#15

http://www.svc.com/storm.html

and a good pump, some of the more experience forum surfers such as DuckieHo might be able to help you. Or just read through them your self and see what everyone else is using/suggesting.

I would idle at 4-5C above whatever room ambient was and load at 7-9C above whatever room ambient was...Thats on a 150 opty at 3019mhz and a 1.55 V-Core....

Something like this would make a decent rig....

CPU..fstfrddy makes us a good block or the Fuzion...

...Stinger Water Blocks

...Fuzion CPU Block

Pump

...D-5

Rad..

...Stealth GTS 360

Rad fan, use a shroud with it to...

...Panaflo 86.5CFM

Tubing...I like this on 1/2" barbs it will flow about as well as full 1/2" and is more compact..

...7/16x5/8" Masterkleer

Full 1/2x3/4"..

...1/2x3/4" Masterkleer

Good stuff to read...

No not unless I put the wrong link in...A 360 GTS is fine for a CPU and GPU...Now with a quad-core I would go with a GTX 360 or 480...

How about this....

D-TEK FuZion Universal CPU Waterblock - 1/2"

Laing D5 Vario/Swiftech MCP655 Inline 12V DC Pump

HW Labs Black Ice Xtreme 120mm Radiator

If I need a bigger rad then Im going to have to get another case.

I would get at least a 240 rad for a cpu and a 360 rad for cpu and gpu...You can always hang it on the back of your case on a rad-box...Make a little air diverter out of something to blow the psu exhaust away from the rad..I used a piece of bleach jug that I painted black and made a semi-circle with that blew the air out to the sides you couldn't hardly see it..You can do the same with the GPU exhaust also...

...Rad-Box
