Here in my country (Brazil), everything is rather expensive... soo its kinda hard to find/build a good cooling system... I'd love to use a water cooling system (since its a hot place), but the prices are a deal breaker...

coolit advanced liquid here with a FX 8150 because i took it from ebay new 50E and add a Noctua NF-p12 pwm
This is super silent a do the job.
Now the AMD sell it with water cooler kit that is real nice.

i was an early adopter of the closed water coolers. I have Corsair Hydro H50, and it works great.

I have a Corsair H60. I don't think it sucks, it does fine for me. My 2500k rarely hits 50C while gaming, but then again sandy isn't a very hot chip and you can have it hit 80C - actually more than that, but I wouldn't be comfortable with it. I have it overclocked to 4.6 Ghz and got a super stable sandy submission on overclock.net. I could go higher, but 4.6 is just fine. I'm not benchmarking or anything.

Also this video made me laugh pretty good. Thanks Rodney!

H100 now, but have the parts to start a custom water setup sitting here. Need to get fittings and tubes. The rest is ready to go.

Noctua NH-U12F on the CPU with a NoiseBlocker XLP 3.0 on it.

2x120mm vents on the case (one front intake, one back out).

Heatsink and fan for me. Ofcourse My processors is an AMD 64 Athlon x2 so there really isn't much heat dissipation needed.

Hi, everyone. Now I have to make a decision that is hard for me to make, so I would really apreciate some help. So I have to decide to buy a Antec Kuhler 620 or save some money and buy a GTX 660 Ti.
BTW: I am using my stock cooler and I reach 68 degrees on my FX-4170 (NO-OVERCLOCK) when gaming. And right now I am using a Radeon HD 7770. So do I buy a Water Cooling or a decent Graphics card ? Thanks in advance. :) :) :)

hmmm I just looked at a youtube review of that FX-4170 CPU and the person testing it hit a high of 49C with the cores loaded on the stock cooler. 68C seems way high. You may want to check for problems like airflow in your case or make sure you heatsink is attached correctly.. If it were me I'd want to upgrade the GPU first.

I have tuniq tower 120 extreme. It got really high ratings on frosty tech.com which is why I bought it, plus it looks cool and seems to give pretty good temps. But, there was onetime that is wasnt working so great because I did a bad job with the thermal paste. I had to redo the thermal paste. It was smooth sailing after that.

I7 920 @ 3.94 Ghz 1.2v on a Scyth Ninja 3

Running for the last 2 years almost passively cooled a silent overclock! And personally couldn't have been happier with a system that can't overheat due too mechanical failure (broke down fan, pump, leaks ...etc)

Intel i7-3770k @ 4.70GHz with a Phanteks PH-TC14PE(blue) dual tower heatsink with two 140mm fans. Great combination.

I use a Antec Kuhler 620 water cooler on my XFX Radeon HD6870 graphics card overclocked. Temps came down from 79c using the loud stock fan/heatsink. Now, after watercooling, it max out at 50c on a full 100% load using OCCT and is whisper quite. 45c max when actually gaming.

I use Hyper 612s to cool my i7 3770k and 6 case fans to make sure air in case is always fresh.

I have a Cooler Master Hypr 612s on my Phenom II x4 840. It's now at 21-22°C in idle. When I play BF3 it's never over 42°C :P

I used to have a thermaltake liquid cooling kit, but after about 2 years or so the water block started to corrode, even though I regularly changed the coolant.

About a year ago I replaced it with the Cooler Master V6GT.

I prefer headphones over speakers so it don't matter how loud my case is, I won't hear it, so I stuff as many large fans in my case as I can.

Air cooling only unfortunately, just an aftermarket cooler for the CPU and a fan mounted on the back of the case. The case isn't that big so not much else I can fit in it, but a new case is my next upgrade. Water cooling; here I come!

Don't feel bad about air. I am at 4.70GHz on air with a 3rd Gen Intel CPU. A 3770K to be exact which has the new 22nm design which runs hotter than the 2nd Gen, but faster clock for clock to the 2nd Gen. My system is not loud either because the 140mm fans don't have to spin fast to move a lot of air, so noise is not an issue. I did watercool my GPU however. See my post and click on the links. I think I am doing really good for air at 4.70GHz. Don't know if water cooling would allow much more than what I am getting now or cooler. The Corsair H100 (240mm rad) was 1c cooler than my Phanteks, but my case isn't really made for a 240mm rad anywhere.

Air cooling throughout, CM V8 on my i7 920 currently.

Oh, and the link in the description is wrong, you linked it to the previous poll video. :)

5x 120mm (2x top, 1x front, 1x rear, 1x side) case fans, Cooler Master TX3 Evo, stock graphics card cooler.

There's no real need for air conditioning here where I live, but when the days are warmer than usual - I have two desk fans blasting in the room to keep the room temperature down.
