    I'm Thinking of getting the Xigmatec Dark Knight Version or the Corsair H50 Water Cooler. How far can I OC my Q6600 with that?

    How about H70? Or does it cost too much more?

    I know it would be better than H50 if you do decide to go that route.

    Its about 60$ more and i i dont thinkits worth itfor that much more. I can get the h50 from a store nearby here for 39.99 after a 20$ rebate compared to newegg who i think has it for 59.99 with no rebate

    If you can get the H50 for 40USD I say go for it.
    It is equal to high-end air coolers (not the best of them) and the big advantage is a lot of room in the case and easy installation.

    3.4GHz, maybe more, dependa on your ambiant, and how far you are willing to go with voltages/temps.

    changed my mind on the h50, I'm a bit scared of the small percentage it has to leak and short circuit my board. Ill be getting a Zalman CNPS9500AT tomorrow. With stock fan/heatsink on my q6600 right now idles at 37-38degrees on core 0 and 1, and 33-35degrees on core 2 and 3, however easytune6 is reading 30degrees idle for the cpu and 27degrees for the system. Can anyone help me on settings to increase my overclock from 2.66ghz ? how far can i go with that cooler?
