AMD cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your PC by my advice. My advice is valid.

Indeed I did miss out on those. One other thing I would like to add is that the different cooling levels are valid under typical cool rooms. Different rooms temps and scenarios will change how youll have to config your cooling.

well look at it this way.

Under my desk, I have both PC's ones along the back, the other is front facing. the exsaust pushed air away from the other system that sort of blows air infront of the other case, but its cool air so its not a big issue. with the heat from this other PC, My temps have risen 2oC becuase there is not a good air flow in the room.

In short, the case (exsaust) should be atleast 12" ( afoot) away from the wall as the intake that neat the GPU will recucle the warm air back into your system.

You may also want to lift your computer off the floor about 4 Cm as this stops alot of dust going into the system.

I believe water cooling should slowly become standard for all systems. Instead of spending all the money on a bunch of fans, and still getting high decibels and high temperatures, companies should just get away from the fan setup. It's just so...15 years ago?

I just recently finished building my own home made watercooling setup for ~$50, and I'm getting temperatures of 23 C idle and 28 C load on my Athlon 64 3200+. Kits are definitely overpriced, but making a system yourself can give you a lot of cooling, and quiet temperatures as well. Throw in some UV dye to the water, and you got yourself one hell of a sweet system.;)

Heres a link for that alternate "water cooling" http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/ethylene-glycol-24_146.html

I would agree that CPu manufactures should have went with a redesign, but I think thats more for the case makers as it is more of a need from them, there is just that little bit of offering both air and water cooled, but this would give the manurfactures the optuity to coll the CPUs better (intel needs that) and clock higher.

We already have water cooled graphics, but they have a hefty mark up on buying one and fitting our own..
