Well, I got around to setting up my new Koolance PC2-650 today.

My CPU Idle is now 42. Max load temp is 61.
That's a P4e 2.8 at 3.5Ghz.
My voltage runs 1.6volt. So my CPU puts
out a LOT of heat.

This case is so much cooler.
My 6800GT now idles 54.
My inside case temp is 25c. That's with
only one 80mm Vantech Stealth pulling air out the back.

Man when I put in one 80mm in the front of
the case and two pulling out the rear it's going to be Super Cool. ;)

I'm a very happy camper at this point.

All I can say is 2 Big Thumbs Up for Koolance.
This is the second Koolance case I've owned
and when I upgrade again I will go back Koolance again. :D

Well, after doing some research it seems
I really need a new water block.

I'm using my old CPU200 water block now.
To bring down my temps I need the new CPU-300-H06.

The 200 was never meant to use on
a hot @ss Prescott at 1.6 volt. "lol" ;)
It could handle northwoods and Athlons
but not 3Ghz+ cpu's with high voltage.

I should be seeing low 50's load with the right block. :)

All and all I've very pleased though. :D

Nice :) That new cooler has the blue led display right?

Yep. :D
U can add it for a few more bucks.
Some of the newest PC3-SLI case come stock.

Man I love it.... I went with blue lite fans "UV"
and my new backlite keyboard is blue.
My new MX1000 is blue and
my new LCD is back.
Dye in the water and so on and so on. :angel:
My X-Connect has UV wires and I ordered
red UV IDE cables.

This thing looks BAD@SS for sure.
I'm going to take some pics when
I'm finished with the setup.

OK, well, those temps are kinda high.

I have a 2.8C running at 3.2Ghz(229fsb), with tons of crap in my rig(see sig), and I am using air cooling with an Antec Super Lanboy, using only 2 120mm low-rpm(1500rpm) fans.

My CPU idles at 26C, maxes out at about 43C after a couple hours of Prime95, and my stock cooled 6800GT running 400/1.1Ghz idles at 52C and peaks around 72C after playing Far Cry at 1280x1024 4xFSAA 16xAniso for an hour...

Temps are all considerably lower than your water-cooled rig. Granted, your CPU is 300Mhz faster, but with water, you should not be running on average 20C hotter than me. Hell, with air, you should not be that much hotter.

Not knocking your new toy, just letting you know that there might be a problem if I have a comparable rig and and that much cooler on air...

My last northwood runs a LOT cooler than these Prescotts do.
At the overclockers forums and all they tell me if I can
get this prescott down to low to mid 50's under load I'll be
doing good. :)

Even my old PC2-C would run a northwood core chip
no problem and keep it cool.

A Prescott at 1.6 volt is putting out well over 110watts of heat.
A northwood is only putting out like 80 max.

Slap a PS chip in your rig and watch your temps go up up and up. :rofl:

The only thing I need is my new water block and 2 fans I have coming.
I checked a couple of reviews and my temps are way to high.
Koolance tech says it's my old water block. It just cannot handle
the heat of a Prescott at 1.6volt. "lol" :)

I switched from the CPU-200 to a CPU-300 Koolance block, last summer. It definately handles the "load" heat better. I knocked about 4 C off the full load temps of my EE @ 3.7ghz 1.65v

Cool. My 200 is the very first one they made back when.
They made like 3 different 200's. "lol" :)
I hope to see my temps drop by more than 4 or 5.

I cannot seem to get the temps down on this 2.8 for sh!t.
It always wants to run 60 to 63 full load at 1.6 volt.

I'm only cooling the cpu with my case. My temps are
way to high. I'm using AS5 to.

What are your idle and load temps right now with the CPU-300?
Though u do have cool NW core. ;)

I just went back and changed some stuff.

My 2.8e will do 3300mhz at 1.4 volt.
That's pretty much stock voltage.

My idle now is 43 and load is 54.
So with a new cooler dropping me 4 or 5 degree's
even at 1.6 I should be good to go.

I should be able to run 3.3 at full load and be no more than high 40's.

I'm just going to run this 3.3 till I get my new block.
I'm hoping when I get an E0 3.2 it will reach 3.8+
at stock voltage. :)
