Default Re: Building a Water cooled PC! Advice ect.

Ok if you're only cooling the CPU then you definately DON'T need a 120.3 radiator....a 120.1 should be more than enough. Or maybe go with a 120.2 to allow for future expansion.

With my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz (B3 stepping) I get an idle of ~40C and load of ~53C (ambient ~23C). With a G0 stepping your temps will be much lower. Probably mid 30's idle, mid 40's load.
