Water Cooling Cpu System By Coolit

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting this unit for my q6600. I live in an old house with out Central Air and the Ambient temp can be high on warm days causing my OC's q6600 to run in the 60's. I was looking around for a water solution that could bring my temps down some and found this. the reviews I found seem good. It seems this may lower my temps to the 50's. Was wondering if anyone on avsim has used one of these?http://www.coolitsystems.com/index.php?opt...55&Itemid=6

There's really no point. Here's one that's dry and'll do the job http://www.directron.com/u120e.htmlI expect that 60 is the Tc temp. That Q's spec is a thermal limit of 72C Tc and 95C Tj. A Tc of 60 is well within the thermal "it will last forever" limit. However the 4 Tjs are the actual core temps and the ones to monitor. Stay at or below the 95 Tj (highest) and the CPU life will not be affected. That's Intel's point of hard wiring these limits into its CPUs. If any core touches 95C Tj, the CPU will begin to throttle to maintain temp. However this is - Way - beyond any temp the CPU will encounter. At 1.45 core volts, even in a 90F+ ambient room, you won't see much above 80C Tj (highest) with that Thermalright cooler . . . and that's running Prime 95. With the sim, it's much less. At idle, less yet.

That's the best standard air-cooling solution in existence, IMO.The Core i7 version I use on my rig is working great.
