    E6600 @3962Mhz LGA775 - Hydrocool 200EX lives on!

    The Thermaltake Big Typhoon was the best investment I made. Why ? Because it's LGA775 mounting gear is perfect for my old and trusty Corsair Hydrocool 200EX unit which uses puny 1/4" OD tubing but still packs the cooling power to beat the Big Typhoon heatsink :D

    The pictures:

    First, a pic of the Hydrocool 200EX stock waterblock with 1/4" OD tubing and what I intend to do with Big Typhoon mounting gear for LGA775 socket. Yes 6mm inner diameter tubing .. puny but still effect for this :D

    Problem though is the waterblock has a thermal probe for displaying temps on Hydrocool 200EX and it's soldered to the top of the block making mounting uneven. So what to do ? Yup, Thermaltake again to the rescue with copper BGA ramsinks :D

    Corsair Hydrocool 200EX lives on thanks to Thermaltake Big Typhoon and BGA copper ramsinks :thumbup:

    Full pics at http://i4memory.com/reviewimages/cooling/cpu/Corsair/Hydrocool200EX_LGA775/html/

    How's it performing ?

    Corsair Hydrocool 200EX with TT Big Typhoon LGA775 mount
    CPU bios idle = 31-32C idle in bios (that's 5-8C cooler than Big Typhoon)
    CPU windows idle = 24-25C (that's 7-8C cooler than Big Typhoon)
    CPU load = 36-39C (that's a full 8-11C cooler than Big Typhoon)

    @3750Mhz at 1.5v
    Big Typhoon idle = 45-48C room temp = 24.5C
    Big Typhoon load = 82-83C room temp = 24.5C
    vs
    Hydrocool 200EX idle = 34-36C room temp = 21.5C
    Hydrocool 200EX load = 65-66C room temp = 21.5C

    These little RAM sinks on the water block look somehow gayish. :lol:

    So far nice improvement.. managed to increase my clock from Big Typhoon @3865mhz to Hydrocool 200EX @3878mhz and cut 2.703 seconds of my personal best 32M time :D

    Wow i changed power supplies from 650W Silverston SLI to my 1KW PCP&C SLI psu on this Hydrocool 200EX cooled E6600 rig and it seems my Gskill PC6400PHU2 2GB HZ pair #1 is clocking higher than it did on my other E6600/Intel D975XBX rig at http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=2928. On other rig at 2.2v vdimm with 4-4-4-12 timing the max for pair #1 was 478mhz, but on this rig so far been able to do 486mhz and i haven't tried higher yet!

    I wonder if it's the better psu or the better Intel D975XBX Badaxe motherboard on this 2nd rig that is the reason for higher mem clocks ?

    Here's pair #1 at 486mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v

    Also seems to have managed my highest cpu clocked passed 32M runs since changing power supplies. Not my fastest times but that can be worked on later :)

    @3882mhz

    @3886mhz

    No probs for pair #1 to complete 32M at 490mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v, that's 12mhz higher than with other badaxe/700W OCZ GameXStream system at same timings and vdimm!

    And here's dual 32M at 490mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v :D

    Complete @3533Mhz at 9x392fsb with memory @490mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v :)

    stock volts for ram is 2.1v, so this is 2.2v vdimm :)

    If you're talking about cpu this is fixed at 1.418v vcore for tests, cpu does 3600mhz at 1.371-1.418v heh

    Actually I think the ramsinks look kinda cute, lol.

    And no I'm not gay either. ;)

    Amazing to see these results - a month or so ago, nobody would have believed that.
