    not worth it! i had a zalman 9700 on a PD 945 and i was getting around 23c with the water i was getting 20c, thats idle temps! then the water block cracked and i returned it and had to get a new mobo.....so i would suggest you stay away from the TT BW 745

    But idle temps are always going to be close. Im trying to push the CPU at load, and in that scenario are the temps going to be close or will it allow greater overclocking?

    Even coolers like Thermalright Ultra-120 will cost me ~£45 inc delivery so i was thinking it may be worthwhile to go for a silent and better solution.

    I'd be interested in know what people get for load temps with conroes oc'd to 3ghz+.

    I hear the TT BigWater series are very loud, could be wrong though.
