My System Specs


My Q6600 is oc'ed @ 3.6 and I use a Swiftech H2O-120 (the old model, with the MCP-355 pump) and it manages to cool the CPU @ 55-56C, loaded. That's with a single 120mm rad.

Now, if you want to cool the CPU, GPU and NB, you'll need some major hardware - single loop with 2x dual rads, one only for the Q6600.

That's my next step - I have to change that single rad. It's too close to 60C for confort. Also, water-cooling is not a sure way to reach an oc target - it depends even more on the other components of your computer.
