I'm looking at getting one of two watercooling kits although a third is not ruled out - I do have overclocking in mind with the CPU - I'd like atleast 3.6GHz if not 4 as i've seen achieved.
The two main kits I have in mind are:
CoolIT ALC Domino Watercooling Kit
CoolIT ECO Watercooling Kit
I have also heard that there is a third which I have not ruled out which is the Corsair H50.
It's probably also worth mentioning I'm on a bit of a budget of about £60 so the Corsair H50 is out of the question unless I wait a bit longer should it be proved to give a significant advantage.
My main question really is, which one is best and are any of them worth purchasing? I.E: Will they do the job and also not sound like a train at the same time?
My hardware is:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3.0GHz
Asustek P5Q Motherboard
Thanks guys. If you need anymore information please say.
If you are on a budget, get an air cooler because none of those actually performs like a real water cooling kit. Those use water to move heat to a heat sink no bigger than what you get on an air cooler there won't be drastic performance changes, in fact some high end air cooling solution can easily outclass any of them.
Your E6850 won't run particularly hot. Chances are your overclock would be limited by the potential of the chip before an air cooler can't handle the temps.
