Re: how well will this cool a QX9650?
Thats to much of a hassle to even consider imo, but if its what you want there is nothing stopping you. I'd rather go with a Zalman if its out for the QX9650 , I don't know much about intels new line of proccesors. Or if you want something with that much power just jump to a custom liquid cooling. But if you want liquid cooling stay away from the kits and customize your own..
