God do I ever love water cooling...

House gets cold in the mornings and with a 300mhz overclock on my e6600 I sit at a chilly 18-20C

Right now after playing Red Alert 3 for the past 4 hours I'm at 26C

how much lower in temps is the Core Contact compared to Tuniq? I forget. I want one but idk how much of a difference and if it is well worth it. My CPU temp at idle is around 38-40 C, close to 50 C or something during loading.

However, I've seen people put Sonic Towers on video cards, so I bet it's possible.
ewww cant do that. Never modded anything yet. Hmm interesting.

I was very happy when I posted higher clocks than him with my water loop.

I don't know man, that sounds like a lot of money to spend for only a 10 degree improvement. I could open the window and get 20 also. I did the other day.

well, all i know is that my temp sensor is on my Tuniq heatsink right now n it is telling me that it is at 29 C idle when i bet in BIOS it would tell me like 36 C or something. It's off.

TX-2 should be better from what i heard, better then my MX-2.

funny thing about MX-2 is that it is hardly any better then the stock thermal compound when i first applied the MX-2. I had to reapply the MX-2 twice. First time was too much on both GPUs (very small buggers, 130mm).

with no fan speed, it's 73 C on idle. With the MX-2 applied, it is now 67 C idle, still no fan speed.

Yes but it's the high overclock and under load where the water cooling really shines.

Were talking 3.4ghz on my e6600 at 35-38C load.
