shoot for just 20usd more you could get an aquiris 2 see the link http://www.xoxide.co...eraqiipreo.html :foldon:

do NOT under any circumstances get the aquarius2! it's the worst water kit in the world and you can get better temps on air!!! i bet my silent boost gets better temps!

BIOS, i'm betting that you are looking at your NB sensor in those programs.. it's possible to have those temps yes, but if BIOS says 62 then that's enough motivation for me to get a better cooler

the best way to find out which out is closer to the temps you see is to touch the heatsink and feel if it's really scorching hot or that's just warm to touch

:withstupid:
If your skin burns off, go with the BIOS' reading, if you only get second degree burns, go with MBM/Sandra's readings. Great idea..
