what is a good water cooling that is under 100$?

 

i guess my max is 100$.

 

because right now it seems like air cooling is pointness to my system.

 

i have the xp90c at the moment and it will get up to 60c to 64c load useing orthos and while playing games it will get up close to 60c.

 

i also tried other heatsinks zalman 7000copper which got up to 70c and the stock heatsink got around 70c to so the xp90c is what im useing now because its better.

 

so pretty much i just got a hot cpu and doesint like air cooling lol

 

so pretty much i need something that will give me decent temps atleast under 60c lol

hmm i look at reviews on that one and it seems like its ony good for low noise than cooling.

 

than i seen this one http://www.cluboverclocker.com/reviews/sup...c_202/index.htm

 

and it seems like it helped alot but one problem i see is the 2nd raderator mounts in back in a 80mm slot which my case has a 120mm slot.

 

tho i problee could mount it under the video card and open up some pci slots covers.

 

 

so what does everybuddy think of this waster cooling system?

 

also i was looking at this at first but not to sure http://www.xoxide.com/evercool-silver-night.html

but air cooling seems not to help this cpu.

 

i had tried 2 good ones that i had xp90c which is on it now with a 90cfm ufo fan

 

and i tried a zalman 7000copper which went up to 70c.

 

so i pop on the xp90c and it went down to low 60s.

 

 

but aint good because it will fail around that temp.

seems like it doesint matter lol most of the time when its 80s or 90s outside we got air on and its about 20c room temp right now its 25c and doesint make much diffrence.

 

just tested orthoes on it now and core 1 went up to 64c and it failed right there:( core 2 was climbing up there around 57c but that core never fails because it doesint go over 60c.

:blink: Is this stock or overclocked?

overclocked but pretty much the temps are pretty high even at stock.

 

others are geting good temps around the mid 40s and low 50s at this speed and pumping close to 1.6v into theres which i got mine at ony 1.48v

 

heck they dont even have better heatsink and fan combo than me and the ones that does doesint even go over 40c load....

 

 

which mine all i got to do is load up othors and core 1 will shoot up to 60c to 64c than fail:(

Here's the thing, there is not a $100 watercooling setup that is superior the the XP90c. As a matter of fact, it will be worse and not cool as well. Then, you'll be back to square 1 and out $100 dollars.

 

The good news is that cooler prices do not change much, so you can save and plan. You'll need to save more than $300 dollars to get the results that you are looking for. Even then, if you have a CPU problem, you'll still be hotter than expected.

The Thermaltake bigwater 735 has worked great for me. I'm running an overclocked P4 prescott, room temperature is 33c, and I have terrible thermal paste. prime95 torture test gives me a cpu temp of 52c, idle temp is more around 35c. You can get one of those for $150 last time I checked.

OOOH, the 745 looks good. I think I need more radiators for mine. It has a pretty powerful pump.

air flow should be good i got the xclio with the 250mm fan one in front and one on side and a 120mm fan in back than i modded a 70mm amd fan to blow on my rams and everything else is cool except the cpu when at load.

 

i tried to remount the heatsink like 5 times this week and try diffrent themal pastes and still gets that high.

 

 

i just cant figure it out lol

ok i was thinking and might not go water cooling

 

and saw theses

 

http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-ultra-90-k8.html

 

http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-big-typhoon-vx.html

 

http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-ultra-120-cpu-cooler.html cant find this anywere found it on newegg but says it doesint come with a bracket?

 

http://www.xoxide.com/zalman-cnps9500-led-cooler.html not sure about zalman the zalman 7000copper was 10c hotter than the xp90c.

 

 

what whould be better? and will they outperform the xp90c?

 

but whould air cooling be better than that water cooling one for 62$?

If you are looking for better temps and have $100 to spend, the absolute best thing you could do would be to buy a new cpu.

It sounds like your cpu just runs hot or the heatspreader is facked...

You could always buy a new one and pop the lid off the old one.

they are pretty cheep now 99$ but what i hate is buying than geting a bad stepping that overclocks bad.

 

this one overclocks over 3ghzs had it up to 3.050ghzs right now runing it at 3ghzs and its stable till the temp rises over 60c:(

 

but ya even at 3ghzs and ony 1.47vcore it should run cooler than what its doing now right?

cant do that because i just got this case and i realy like it paid 100$ for this.

 

but i might try this heatsink herd alot of good things about it

 

http://www.xoxide.com/thermalright-si-128.html

 

than this for the fan http://www.xoxide.com/aerocool-xtreme-turb...2000-black.html

 

think those will cool it?

 

also i herd the xp90c is pretty much outdated.
