A workable water cooling solution...

Xavian-Anderson M., Newegg
7 August 2008
  • Summary: It's been awhile since the person below requested this information. But I hope this will help with others seeking the same thing. And by the way, use 1/2" tubing. Anything less is really a waste of time and money.
  • Pros: I have four Koolance CPU-330s installed on my Tyan s4980. The Koolance blocks included every known processor mount. And they are very nice to look at as well. But most importantly, they're all metal, no plastic. Koolance doesn't make you pay for an adapter to use 771, as it is included. The probl...
  • Cons: Some might foolishly complain about the price. But anyone buying this processor, or any of the other XEONs for that matter, won't or shouldn't be complaining about the price of such an excellent cooling solution.

Serious performance!

Randy K., Newegg
10 May 2008
  • Summary: Does anyone know a good water cooling solution for dual LGA 771 configurations? Koolance has a solution, but not sure if it is worth the $400 or so to make it work??
  • Pros: Great performance, these things live up to their reputation. Should be a good server solution for years.
  • Cons: Stock fans work great, but they are loud. You can adjust down to a slower speed in the BIOS, but even the (Super Quiet) setting is a bit loud for consumer use. That said, they work, temps under load with fans on low peak out at around 60C, idle temps in the low 40s.
