I just got a KICKASS Radiator for my watercooling setup. Now my CPU idles @ 19.5C and under load goes to 28C, while before it idles @ 21.5C and under load was 32C.

Gonna get a Copper waterblock, peltier, copper cold plate, Silver compound, and a Copper spacer from www.overclock-watercool.com (http://www.overclock-watercool.com) soon http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif

I got my tbird/duron spacer, 80w pelts, waterblocks and all that from www.overclockershideout.com (http://www.overclockershideout.com)

Look for a review of the system coming out soon by me http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

DO NOT USE SILVER COMPOUND!!! I have heard that it can cause serious electrical damage when used w/ a spacer. And also, it doesn't help much.

This is the radiator i got:

The site says its 5 1/8" x 11" x 3/4" but the 1 I bought at a local store is 7 1/4" instead of 5 1/8", but it lookz EXACTLY the same as the pic. The site sells it for 45bux american, but I got it for $68 Canadian 'n its bigger!! http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif

I HIGHLY suggest my type of radiator cuz the tubing doesn't have many bends 'n stuff, so water pressure doesn't drop when you use it + it cools better than normal radiators!

John, thats a pretty good site but waterblocks that used the old fashioned "tubed" channel design isn't good cuz it lowers water pressure and the surface area is spread out over the entire block. Check out the poly blocks and Universal waterblock from www.overclock-watercool.com (http://www.overclock-watercool.com) they've got a chamber for the water to swirl around so they're more efficent.

freckmoto, i'm gonna use it on a P3 and on the surface of the P3 there are no exposed metals so it won't short circuit http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif
Well i'm using CHEAP white silicon compound right now so almost ANYTHING is better http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

Arctic Silver compound isn't electrically conductive anywayz so I doubt there'll be a problem even when used with SocketA CPUs

Oh ya the site where they sell that radiator is www.dangerden.com (http://www.dangerden.com) they sell pretty sweet looking copper blocks http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif
