What is the best form a cooling? Traditional heatsink and fan or liquid
coolling?

Which models are the best?

Thanks

Air cooling beating water cooling? there has to be something messed up on
your water cooling system if that is the case..

XP90? It sounds like a Thermaltake product.

Thermaltake? Definately not! That is a Thermalright product...BIG
difference.

I don't think you know what an XP90 is...it's a heatsink....not a case!

Nope, nothing messed on my water cooling is a thermal right xp90 HSF am
talking about and it beat my freinds water cooler setup same as mine by 3
degrees and is quieter with a low speed fan on it than the corsair water
cooling stock...

Mr. M, I run a Kandalf ThermalTake case but here nothing bad about the
Tsunami...

Dont be fooled some of todays highend HSF do great at cooling esp. the A64
that are cooler to start with..I have a home made water cooler that will
beat anysink but is resides under a side desk compared to inside a case like
a HSF does..Dont get me wrong am not knocking water cooling is that it is
just not reguired with these a64 cpu's is all provided you get a decent HS
and fan, am probly better off with the water on my 2 asus 6600 gt's. And use
my monster Coolermaster copper sink I have for the cpu (Hyper 6).

I use a XP120 with a quiet fan and I'm not impressed.

I will be changing to a water cooling system shortly.

Am surprised, fisrt time heard anyone complain about this sink, personly
have been using water since I can remember, but freinds with the same setup
as me claim these sinks are great even when compared to the water..at least
with the corsair kit..

I have a Thermaltake Big water, Water cooling system with VGA Water block +
the Round tank & flow meeter. The estra tank allows more volume and the
flow meeter shows pump activity which proves extremely useful when
overclocking. You can use 3 size tubing basically the bigger the tubing =
more flow = better cooling but looks huggly. Small tubing gage looks verry
cool and works great but slightly less effcient at cooling the units... In
two words, I have several watercooled riggs. The big water is the best
design I have seen, cool looking but also of incredible build quality. I
find most products from Thermaltake to be visually pleasing and powerfull +
reliable. (nope, I dont work for Thermaltake, in case you ask...)

If you want to watercool your video card like I did, you will have to void
your warrantly. You must remove the 3 fans, and install the VGA water
block, also you will have to install some heat sinks on the RAM chips. they
run above 100 celcius after overclock.

Here are my specs

AMD Opteron 244 (64 bit power house)
ASus SK8V (940 pin)
OCZ Modstream power supply
Albatron GE-Force FX 5700 Ultra (Watercooled)
2 Gig DDR
200 Gig SATA
Linux Mandriva Limited Edition 2005 for x86 (64bit) (everything works out
of the base install cd's... a charm.)
Windows XP Pro 64 ( A friggin nightmare if you ask me, no drivers for
anything...)
