In the second part of our cooler roundup we review six more products, rating cooling performance, noise and ease of installation. This time, we have a field ranging from the bargain-bin part to the water cooling setup.
What was used for cooling for the overclocking article's machine here on Tom's Hardware? I'm surprised they didn't say! Large heat sinks and monster fans, or something more extreme?
I bought a Thermaltake BigWater 7860is water cooling unit, and the Coolermaster case I'm using has almost a dozen fan slots and plenty of ventilation, so we'll see if I can't get the 11x or higher multipliers to work without overheating. I'd love to get it stable at 5 GHz, but we'll have to see how it goes.
