Hi guys, I lan on a weekly basis and want to push the envelope as far as my q6600 (B3 rev.) goes, I currently run a scythe andy samurai master with a delta fan whacked on it for the banter (31 degrees idle/38 degrees load @ 2.66 ghz) but I fear the delta+600grm cooler on intel push pins is about the limit that my p5n-e sli can take (need new mobo to overclock the q6600 further).
What i want to ask is, with a well assembled Water cooling loop (cpu and maybe the NB/S
stable and strong enough to regularly LAN with? I generally keep the case upright for transport. I dont want to go with a full E-ATX tower either, and I am considering the Lian LI pc-7 plus 2 or Coolermaster cm690 for my next case. I am leaning toward the lian li as it looks nicer and is aluminium (easy cutting)
I also have no experience of what is required to cool a q6600 well enough to hit 3.2ghz or so. I was thinking the XSPC with a 240mm rad and 2x scythe juni's @ 1900rpm. Also, is it worth buying a dedicated resevoir? or will the pump/res combo work ok?
