    i was looking at those, just wasnt sure if they would really be that much of an improvement to justify $20...a cple of reviews i found of people with the same board all get about 3.2 ghz on their e6300's, and i can get 3.15 stable with stock...but, who knows their ambient and shizzle...thx for the advice...i think ill give the $20 one a try...quick question though, when core temp talks about my Tjunction temp hitting 87c, is that the northbridge? if not, what is it and what can i do to cool that down?

    Thermalright HR-05 is exactly what you want.

    The Tjunction temperature is a predetermined value recorded on the CPU which is essentially the maximum safe temperature.

    thanks for the help fellas...i had never been a big fan of thermaltake products, always seem to have good potential, but never live up to it...then i tried the golden orb II in a build, and liked it so much i got one for myself...having said that, i feel like the zalman 9500 would do better, and now its on sale for like $45...the reviews on that nb cooler are pretty damn good...but i would rather not have another fan, so if newegg ever gets that damn thermalright in stock, ill grab it...if not, i may have to try that thermaltake...i wonder though, should i drop $65 on a zalman cpu cooler and a new chipset cooler, or should i go with this? or this? or maybe this?

    Don't. Good air > bad water. Plus, good air never leaks, no leak testing, no hassle at all.

    jab-tech.com has the HR-05 in stock.

    Those w/c choices. Go all the way, or don't do it at all. My old athlon xp had a tt bigwater se (it was a gift, i'd never buy it) and it got better temperatures using an SI97.

    I agree with BBQ. Get an HR05 and you'll be sorted. Bad WC'ing is a lot worse than proper air, and it's more expensive when it goes wrong.

    You could've just posted a picture, instead of making us float through a badly-formatted thread over on crapsus.

    By the way, that looks awful, course the important thing is the temps... Any improvement? :p
