hey i am looking at a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 to overclock my q6600 g0. I was thinking of replacing the stock fan with something like this http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/de12trblhisp.html
i was wondering how much this would bring down my temps and if it would help me obtain a higher oc.
btw noise doesn't matter
that is heat pipe you talk about, do you know how thin that wall is? one tiny crack, the heat pipe become useless.
Haha, I have no clue how thin the wall is but lapping heat pipes doesn't sound like a good idea regardless. Well...it is fairly cheap...screw it...lap that bad boy but make sure to post video of it so that we can see what happens when you lap through a heat pipe wall.
