Changing from air cooling to water cooling

I have some thoughts to replace my condenser. In the current situation is a Zalman CNPS9700 NT to Thermaltake BigWater 745 and then a little wonder if I will notice a significant difference in temp and the noise level if not, it feels unnecessary to change but I will run with an over-q6600 which generates some heat hence the change.

Current temp with q6600 at 3Ghz:

Temp: about 45 (fan unwind hence high temperature)
Load: approx 65-70

Re: Changing from air cooling to water cooling

Have you thought overclocking more than 3 GHz?

Yes, I have plans to clock up 3.6 Ghz depending on how much vCore I must have.

I know that it is more than twice as expensive but in the long run you will not regret it as the big water cooler.

Re: Changing from air cooling to water cooling

Thanks so much for the tip because I appreciate the alternative to big water, but I have no desire to put lots of money on a first system but want to have reached to a good temp and able to cool an over-quad but is also somewhat quiet but as long it does not cost much. It is ok for there is about my limit for I want to add on a first system.

Edit: Saw now that there was a radiator in the 120mmx3 you linked which will be problems if I'm going to fit it in my chassis without major modifications that have been by the way a PC Lian Li PC-A71B.

Chilled PC Extreme CPU Water Cooling Kit (PA120.2)

120.2 series instead but if you thought water cooling the graphics card is not a stupid idea with a 120.3 for the sound level sake. Of course, you can always buy a single 120 number in the post. Buy only two fanmates for or a fan control so you can slow them down when you just surf.

Re: Changing from air cooling to water cooling

Aah thank huh not a bad idea on when my IAF now has no plans to water cooling the graphics card so it is sufficient perhaps with a 120.2 and fan controls, I have already.

Thank you so much for your help.
