Default Corsair "COOL"

If you are an overclocker, you are constantly keeping an eye on your temps. Heat
is the enemy of overclocking, and as an overclocker, we do anything and
everything that we can to dissipate heat. Some go to real extremes, and cool
their chips with phase change, and other super-chilling methods, like dry-ice
and the such. These are usually the guys that are holding the world records at
Futuremark and other benchmark sites. Those extremes get expensive. Where does
this leave the average and even above-average overclocker?
Corsair has been known for their dedication to the enthusiast crowd with their
ram products. But they have also ventured out into water cooling for the
enthusiast as well. Does Corsair have the same quality in their water-cooling
products as they do their ram? That is what we are going to find out today, as
we look at the Corsair ?COOL? water-cooling system. This is actually my
first water cooling adventure, I have been a little anxious about using water
in my rig, but decided to take the ?plunge?. (Pun intended!) So, with that
said, I am writing this review as a total ?newb? in this area!

Ambient temp was 20°C at higher Vcore and higher HTT with the same SLK948U Plus Chill Vent

80mm fan is better for CPU cooling than 92mm; hence Swiftech recommends 80 over 90.

don't you think the chipset cooler is blocking the videocard ?

In the pictures on page 7 , you can see the GPU in the lowest PCI E slot.

What's up with that ?

The chipset cooler is made and installed by DFI

The two 40mm are blowing onto the video card if that is what you are talking about.
