Default Re: upgrade list

Ok i have a presscott so i will deal with this matter since i know how it is. Ever since i bought the zalman copper(50$ one), i have been at 40-42 idle which is good for a presscott. I suggest the zalman reserator for a easy water cooling to cool it. I have been able to OC my presscott to 3.7 with my HS and it only got up to 52 C. You do't need fans, just get the water cooling or the HS i have.

ok 1 sec ima check out the pricing on the 3.2ghz with that heatsink then i'll get back to you, oh btw with water cooling wouldnt you have to change the water alot to keep the bacteria away? look back at this post in a sec because im just gunna edit it

ok with that it comes to a total of $35.85 with artic silver 5 compound 3.5 gram tube
