Budget WC or TEC cooling?
I have this kit with me.
I know its crap, but can I use any of the parts may the radiator, pump, fan etc and buy a better CPU block, tubing, liquid, reservoir and flow indicator? Is it worth it?
I found a good Abit board that clocks easily to 270 HTT. I thought of pulling out my 5600 (from Jetway board that does not clock more than 250HTT) and pump some more volts thru it to see if I can achieve 3.7Ghz (I wish).
Should I go with Het's http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=66527 - Thermaltake ProWater 850i Liquid Cooler - instead?
Or Should I go TEC?
Worth the pain?

stay away from tt water coolers! never and never buy them! they will probably destroy your system... and that tec isn't that good, i'd say go for an HDT cooler, such as a sunbeam core contact.
check the best
