Hydrocool + Intel QX6700


Recommended Posts

I've just bought the quad, and now i'm wondering if the hydrocool will be compatible with the new cpu or not.


Cooling: Hydrocool 200

CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700


Thank you.





The Intel quad core CPU isn't easily cooled with the Hydrocool 200. The HC can only cool up to 200W max with about 10% bonus cooling in reserve just in case ambient temps rise to high. With that said, you will need to modify (mod) the HC 200 to cool that bad boy of a CPU.


Some time ago, I had wrote an article to merge the HC 200 with the Corsair Cool product. This merger should be able to cool the quad core CPU. However, the CPU cold-block isn't available from the cool anymore. So, I would recommend using the Swiftech Apoogee block instead. I'm not certain if the Nautlius 500 cold-block is sold individually by Corsair. It's been a long time since I've been around the forums. :o:
