    It doesn't answer ya question but I'd consider this before running down that patrh.... the 2600k runs 7C hotter than the 2500k at 4.7 Ghz

    It's almost ironic that coolers like this are becoming available just as processors transition to designs that may ultimately render them unnecessary; even overclocked to 5GHz, an Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K doesn't need anywhere near this level of cooling.


    And that's with an air cooler.
  2. so water cooling is not worth the money? im not doing it to keep things cool , my gpu stays under 75 on full load and my 4.3ghz OC i5 2500k runs at 29 on idle , but for the looks and i always wanted to build a liquid cooler computer. But if it too expensive i wont bother
