+1. I've got my MCR220 cooling my q6600 and 8800gts. The q6600 is at 3.2ghz right now (just set the pc up, haven't had time to mess with the overclocking more)

Sorry if that sounded too negative or offensive... I run MCR220 with i7 @ 3.88Ghz with crappy voltage (my chip is not the best) and MCR didn't cut it for me for my noise to performance liking, while TFC240 did. So, this is just my personal experience. Peace.

Seriously guys? The i7 dumps so much more heat than a 775 processor so it really doesn't surprise me at all and figured something like this would be so obvious.

mcr220 was fine for my i7/4870 when i had it in my basement but i have moved and the ambient is way higher at my new place so ( i have found that the i7 only generates about 10c more in temp then the c2d. jmo)

10 degrees is a big bump in difference for heat.

Thanks for all the comments and help guys.. so I put the card in the mobo to test .. and this is the outcome:

Seems the card was just bending because of the length and since the whole card doesn't get covered by the block, it's just the weight on once side than the other.. As you can putting the card in the slot, it's perfectly straight, and warp anywhere to be seen..

I'm just waiting on some 90 degree barbs so I can finish routing the tubing and have some leak testing going.. I'll remove the block of the mobo, also the psu will be taken out, as far as the video card is concerned, should I be un mounting the block from the card as well or leave it on?
