    Hi All,


    I recently have been venturing into the Overclocking Realm. I had quickly went from Air Cooled to a Water cooling solution..


    I have successfully Overcloked a 570 3.8GHZ Stock CPU to 4.4GHZ Stable running Prime 95..

    Here are some pics of the Thermaltake BigWater 760is Cooler:[​IMG][​IMG]



    As you see in the Above Pic. It hangs out for the drive bay a bit, So I need to get a Full Tower case..




    I also added some Optional Fans to my heatsink over the Capcitors above and to the left of the CPU. I also added a small fan to my NorthBridge:

    Funny thing about those Optional Fans I was about to go on ebay and purchase them but out of luck I thought to look in my Mobo Box and sure enough I had both Fans included with the Mobo.. ;)

    I spent my first year of college at a tech school. There was a kid there who filled his tower with mineral oil to cool his computer. Always fascinated me.

    Using something like a Bigwater 760? That's what it looks like.

    Yes the WC in the pic is a 760is BigWater.. I have since upgraded my case to a full tower and went temporarily to Air cooling while I sort out on which Water cooling solution I should use..I had run into a problem with the 760 bigwater and returned it to get a new one..


    I bought a CoolerMaster HAF 932 AMD Edition with the Red front..

    Depends on the use. I really like the Zalman solutions, spendy but damn quiet
