its not worth the money, imo u should buy the TRUE lapped for 50. cant go wrong, itll cool ur cpu down ALOT! dont spend 200 on a wc setup for ur system, 200 is alot of money to spend on a mid range system.

Get the TRUE... Water cooling isn't so great for 45nm cpu's anyways. Ask around...

yea I run my e8400 @ 3.6ghz, but its at 3.0 (stock right now) running at 42c idle. But once again, I get 10 different readings, and 42c is my highest and moves around the most.

I have a Q6600 @ 3.6ghz OC'ed, I used Artic Silver and a Zalman 9700 Cpu cooler, I idle around 28-32c on a bad day and add +10-12c under heavy load.

thats rly good. my temps are terrible lol. I know we've had this discussion before, but I just downloaded real temp 2.7 and it shows me at 34c vs 45c. Which do I believe?!? 34c would be an awesome temp to have if its true. BTW, the HSF is not even warm to the touch.
