Alright, it's just too hot in the summer to keep this thing running OC'd, I've been looking at either doing another custom H2O system or maybe going with a good TEC, anyone direct me to some good TEC kits?

I use the Swiftech MCW6500, good unit, but don't use for quad cores.

Any suggestions for quadcore cooling then?? I'll be getting one before September.

My TEC cools my E6600 down to 25C idle @ stock. It's quite good actually. It's pricey, but it's worth the investment... and it really shows its colors when the VTEC.... I mean TEC turns up. I can run my E6600 @ 3.6Ghz 1.5V both cores stable, and it never peaks over 60C.

All in all, it is a kick-ass cooling solution that is borderline what water can do. So the Vigor Gaming Monsoon II TEC gets my vote.

Also, I'll check around and see if anyone has used this cooler for quad core, and see what the results are.

EDIT: I found a small page detailing 4 different TEC's and the like. All seem to work very well with Quad Core.
