    Reccomend a water cooled northbridge cooler

    I'm going to buy my brother a water cooled northbridge cooler for Chrimbo, have a budget of around £25, and I'm after some reccomendations

    It has to be a universal one as I'm not sure what board he has and I don't realy want to ask him and give the game away (his cpu is a C2D 6700, I think it's a 965 or 975 chipset) and it will be using 1/2" tubing.

    Probably going to buy something from Danger Den or EK, it's a shame that Scan only seem to do Alphacool stuff

    If I were you, I would ask your brother which one he wants. Worst thing you can do is buy somebody a really bad example of something they want, or even one that isn't compatible with their current equipment.

    ... also just remembered that he's running an 8800 GTX so I'll need to make sure that it's not obscuring the northbridge, looks like I'll have to let him into what Santa will be bringing him

    Still though it would be cool to have some reccoemndations anyhow

    Agreed, another vote for the MCW30, versatile, cheap and interchangeable barbs.
