Hi all,

I'm looking into water cooling my CPU, which is a i7 920, i've overclocked it to 3Ghz on a metal tower with twin fans but its so loud when under load and i want to get a bit more out of the CPU as i'm upgrading to a new graphics card soon s well. probably a gtx580/70 (depending on how far i can stretch my budget).

I've seen antec and corsair watercoolers but i'm not sure what is the best to go for so i'd like your opinions on them or if there is a better one. i don't want to spend more than 100 on the cooler.

Thanks

if you want more out of the CPU and you can't get it with a cooler with 2 fans you'll probably do better buying a new CPU. idk what i7 920s are capable of, but new i5s and i7s can both get over 4ghz practically with stock coolers.

the i7 920 has a stock of 2.66GHz, you should be able to get more than 0.33GHz increase on air IMO

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
