My System Specs


Not enough of an upgrade if you are relatively happy with your current cooler. I have the H100 on a Q9450 and it is about as effective as air cooling for me, just silent. My CPU idles around 42C and loads up to 55C, and that's not even overclocked or overvolted yet.

I'd buy a new fan or if you want water make the plunge and find a used custom kit somewhere.
