Hey,

I recently put together a new water cooling loop for my E6600 and the temp drop and noise level is not enough for me to justify the $260 price tag. (I got an idle temp of 28c with this set).

It consists of:

Aquaxtreme MP-05 (says Aquaxtreme on the block, but was purchased as a D-Tek block (both make the same block): rivals the Swiftech Storm $72 (retails for $75)

Swiftech MCP655 pump (amazing flow and quiet) $69 (retails for around $75-80)

Swiftech MCRES Micro reservoir $15.99 (retails for $19.99)

Black Ice Stealth 120 Radiator $42.50

4 feet of uncut Clearflex 60 1/2" ID (5/8" OD) tubing (and 6 feet roughly of pre-cut tubing to fit my case) $7.50

4 feet of unused Coolsleeves (5/8" OD) (2 feet of cut Coolsleaves to fit my system) $7

10 Black Tube Clamps (5/8" OD) $7.50

PrimoChill Ice (Green) about half a bottle $19.99

Altogther it cost me around $240 plus shipping, when it could have cost me around $260.

The set was put together and used to turn on the computer for 1 DAY and 1 DAY ONLY. Right now it is just sitting on the floor, waiting to be disassembled and set off to an owner that actually needs the awesome set for a hot cpu!

If I cannot resell this stuff here, I guess I will just auction it off on ebay. I am willing to here any offers, and am willing to bargain.

Thanks

So what are you using to cool the cpu now?

I have the 6600 and am getting 36-39 idle and 46-52 on load, with the 52 being dual prime 95 running, all on a silverstone NT05.

Runs to 55 when I hit 3 ghz, and I would like to keep it in the high 40's.

I am currently using the stock cooler.

My temps before the water cooling were 49 idle, and that's why I got the water cooling. However, I had my motherboard outside of my case and I tried to mount the stock cooler again and realized that I had originally not mounted it flush against the cpu. When I turned on the computer I was getting 36 idle. I was quite angry, because this water cooling set up seemed like a waste.

However, for someone like you who does a lot of overclocking, it seems like it would be a great buy.
