How do those swiftech kits perform buck? I love the aspect of the pump and block being together, such a space / money saver.
I've been using the same pump/block unit that BuckNasty has on my p35 for well over a year now. My E6750 Conroe cranks along at 3.6 GHz, 450 FSB and it NEVER hits 40c. All this with a 120mm HW labs Black Ice Extreme X-flow rad. Here's a screen shot of temps while folding.
I can recommend this pump/block combo to anyone with a cramped case (like me). The pump is just as Tigger describes it. A DCC 3.1. The block is the old Swiftech Apogee. I purchased mine for $79 which is quite a deal considering. Also, I have experienced none of the vibration issues Tigger mentioned. But he's not alone. I've read of other people having a similar experience.
And a tip of the hat to Ketxxx, I'm running an xspc block on my Northbridge.
