For a better response to the question you may want to visit: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/index.php? as they have more people that have water cooling.


Your best bet would be to get a all copper water block.

Most people don't overclock those processors for getting it faster. Just for a little thing to do to see how far it goes.

its pretty fast but right now the FX-57 or for that matter any 64-bit single core is faster until games and other apps are broken down into multiple process threads in 2-3 years so it sounds like this processor will last until then but ib 2007 AMD is releasing a quad core processor for the multithreaded apps
also, i want to overclock

Why did you get the 4800+ If you plan on overclocking it with water?

Dude if you knew that information then why didnt you just get the fx-57 for games? it would seem like the logical thing to do.
