Well ok from that review it looks like it's the equal of the Apogee GT.....but you need the apogee GTX for that quad core. Oh here's a question. Is you Q6600 a B3 or G0 stepping? If it's a B3, you need the best cpu block you can get. It loves to put out heat
I would recommend going with the GTX rather than the koolance. And if you don't want aluminum in your loop (the GTX has an aluminum top) then you can pick up a replacement copper top for it (they have them at petra's tech I see now....)
Yeah I'm not sure if a 120.3 rad is necessary either....I have one and all I have is my Q6600 and 8800gtx in the loop. It does a great job. The one thing it does allow me is to have the fans on super low the majority of the time and still get great temps. But whether it's necessary? I don't know.
