    New Water Cooling Setup

    Hey all, I have just purchased and installed a Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultima Liquid Cooling Kit i was wondering what temps should i be expecting? i have OCed my Q6600 Core 2 Quad so its running at about 3Ghz. idle its at about 37 and when underload at 47 i was hoping for it 2 be much lower than this as in the future i was hoping 2 get a little higher than that say to 3.6Ghz if my mobo will handle it, my friend has just bought a new PC, hes got an i7 920 running at 3.6Ghz and is between 40-65 degrees when idle and on load... he paid 80 bucks for his CPU fan in it is doing pretty much the same cooling, can this be right?

    New Water Cooling Setup

    this is my first build so i wouldn't be surprised if i did something wrong. does it matter which way the cpu block faces? i have my different to how the manual shows it, also i dont think i spread the thermal paste very well... i have the inlet and outlet of the radiator at the top as it is sitting verticaly so it should self purge. whats TIM btw
