Only because it is extreme, and to get every last ounce of cooling potential. It is definitley not needed though.
My CPU @ 3.6GHz and 1.625v is idling right now @ ~34C and loading at no more than 50C with the Uber Alphacool pump dumping heat on the thing like crazy.
According to MartinsLiquidLab flow calculator, I get 1.08 GPM with the pump @ 12V and 1.61 GPM with the pump @ 24V with 2x PA120.2s, a dual 92mm radiator, a D-TEK FuZion, 2 EK MOSFET, the DD MCP-680i NB bloc, and 2x MCW60s with no 90 degree adapters. How does this sound to you guys?
Should I consider upping the flow rates?
Thanks in Advance.
