    K, so its Australia, summer, around 32*C everyday.

    I wanna o/c my q6600.

    However, my Zalamn 9500CNPS isn't doing a good enough job. The coolest core sits at 45*C idle. I was thinking of a cheap Watercooling setup say, maybe the Thermaltake big water 760i?

    However, i've heard people say its rather loud an ineffient? is this true?
    (like, hd3870 leafblower @ 100% speed loud or...?)


    Also, would i be better off with a better air hsf?

    my budget is around $200, oh and i want to be able to get atleast 3.0ghz out of this baby. :)

    Custom water is the best bet. Avoid Thermaltake water cooling products. Not very good.

    If worse comes to worst, and you can't piece together a custom kit for your budget, look into the Swiftech kits.

    That would be OK, but look into piecing a kit together yourself first. Need a pump, rad, res, cpu block, tubing, clamps and fittings. I'm not sure of good places to shop in Aus.
