    Thats pretty good.

    Just to clarify:
    1. did you use a reservoir?
    2. What thermal paste did you use?
    3. Which of the 2 xspc pumps is that?
    4. What fans and at what volatges?

    I think you might have a slightly weak link and could do even better perhaps. I have a Prescott clocked from 3.0ghz to 3.9ghz at a fairly high voltage. This kicks out a lot of heat but i still only get 39 full load.

    Im using the 120.2 xspc with 2x 6v fans, a hydor l30 and an RBX.

    Of course room temperature and other factors will make a lot of difference and dont get me wrong, your temp is something you should be happy with.

    Can anyone recommend an article on setting up a water cooling system?

    I am quite interested in "alternative" cooling options, but I would like to weight the pro/cons and find out how "messy" it would be to set one up.

    Having to cut holes through the case is not a very attractive option to me, seeing that I like the tools.

    The "cleanest" are the all in one phase change systems.

    Sit under the case (or in the case if you get the special cases) and just acts like a HSF with a big cable

    No fuss.

    I had a look at the Vapo Lightspeed. But I take it those require you to drill at the bottom to get the cable though right?

    cleanest, lol, only if you forget condesation proofing - but yea, requires least cutting in case, but then I see little point in phae cooling the cpu and leaving the gfx card on air.

    Do GFX card overclock well when cooled nowadays?

    I must confess that my 9700 Pro was not a good clocker.. And the lil overclock I got out of it did not improve the performance all that much.

    A cheap watercooling kit with a single fan radiator might fit nicely into a case with no modification. It wont have amazing performance though.

    Guess its compromise everywhere no matter what option I go for.

    Is there anything stopping companies to design phase cooling kits that also cools GFX card? I am guessing that there are simply not enough competition in that area...

    (Price has not changed that much in the past few years either, has it?)

    I was kinda interested in water cooling, but it sounds like a well implemented system is quite... troublesome, and the whole thing would still cost half the price of phase cooling (still quite a lot).

    silver one
    xspc 750 pump
    no fans yet lol

    ive spent 105 so far
    could spent much more lol

    Ah well, if you dont have any fans thats a really good temperature.

    Building a reservoir is very simple and cheap if you have the time.

    I used a section of drain pipe, put a circle of perspex on the top and bottom, made a screw in cap for the top and put two barbs in the bottom and painted it.

    Sounds a bit leaky, what did you use to seal it?
