Default Alphacool NexXxos XP water block

We´re rapidly approaching the point where these HSF (Heat Sink Fan) combinations are simply too large and heavy to mount on our motherboards. Given the benefits of H20, it´s only a matter of time until most CPU´s are water-cooled. We take a closer look at Alphacool´s NexXxos XP water block. Can it keep an overclocked Prescott running cool at 4Ghz? Read on to find out

After reading the review i raced out and bought one
No i am to to pleased with it
Set up wasnt that hard for a total newbie like me but the manual wasnt the one for the top line kit so i rang them and the reply was its the same setup we dont have another one
After playing round got it together(alan key for the cpu block was to big)It seems that this little number will no go under 42°at idal.
So i think you can understand i am not to impressed atm.
I just emailed alphacool to ask if they have any i deas about the problem(there support forums are only in german)so ill see how much support i get for my 300€.

Hi there and a great big thxx jmke

Booted at 3000 but ram isnt stable(yet)
Now as for alpacool great review and i would'ntflame that butif your thinking about buying this only do it if you think you'll never have a problem with the system.Y?coz the after sales is a big fat 0

Got this block too...

almost the same combo:

Black Ice xtreme with 2* titans and an eheim compact that delivers 1000 liters per hour

just as gijoe...my temps in bios is 39°C

That seems a bit high... everything is mounted correctly, with AS

please help me out on this one, can be the reading of my motherboard too (stock cooling gives 43 °C in bios=idle)
