    1) My current 3DMark06 score is 11,400, and that is cpu limited atm (2850MHz). I ran that with 935 core and 1400 memory on my 2900, voltage modified via bios to 1.35 and temperatures dont go above 65C :) :) :) (still looking for a way to get higher voltage)

    2)I would reccomend, if you got this, that it be ran on a solo loop, i.e. just the DD-29XT block, pump and radiator in the loop. (I use a 3x120mm rad which is pretty damn big and it barely feels warm to touch, so you could probs get away with a smaller one tbh)

    3) When/if you come to get the rest of your pc water cooled, I would run them in their own loop, use a small DDC 12V pump (I use that for my 2900 loop) to save space while retaining power and simply loop the cpu or northbridge to that and a smaller 120mm rad or dual 120mm rad.

    This waterblock is so very effective at what it does, and I could not be happier with it.

    Now the artcic silver has set in, I get 28C boot up temperatures, and during overclocked gaming the temperatures reach 52C(normal voltage) and 62-65 with a much higher core voltage. Thats simply great considering what the stock cooler did hehehe

    hope that helps

    Wow thats definetely great. It will probably be toward the end of December or beginning of January till I go watercooled, I just need to buy a few things a long with it, like a case, a new motherboard that allows me to change voltage so I can overclock my AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ a bit. But yeah, i'm just looking around to have an idea of what I wanna buy at the given time.

    Your reviews and help is highly appreciated, thank you very much.
