isnt it right that nowa daysd you only get 3-8 degrees difference in a decent zalam etc vs water cooling ?? i dont see the point for a gaming build like e8400 and a 8800 they will be absolutely fine on air,
That's not so true. If you really want to push the Vcore on a 65nm quad, and push it until even with more Vcore, it will go not further, then water cooling is the only option. If you assemble your own parts, and you don't mind noise, water cooling can bring a big temp drop over air.
And BTW, Zalman FTL!1! My £20 92mm lapped Vendetta > £40 Zalman 9700!!
@ Lukaszr. You have the E8400, yes? If so, you'll likely reach the Vcore limit (1.4V) before air cooling is not enough.
