What LiquidCooler?

Hi,
I needed some help to find a good liquidcooler that supports LGA 1366 ( Core i7)
I have searched eBay but all i can find is LGA 775.
Do you guys know any good liquidcooler and can you point me those?
Or even a good air cooler? ( I am going to o/c )

Thanks,
Alex.

Try this one: http://www.tweaktown.com/news/10423/...ers/index.html

I use a 760i with a Q6600 (socket 775) and find it works very well for my needs. My system never goes above 50C even playing Crysis with dual 9800gt's.

Understand that if your CPU is a retail version that came with an Intel supplied heat sink fan (HSF) assembly, using any other cooling solution voids the warranty! This applies to AMDs too, BTW.

Overclocking voids it too.

Since the i7 is still a "newer" setup finding a liquid cooler on eBay is going to be very hard.
Like all liquid cooling items it can get pricey too. I have been looking around for something for a new build but it all gets very pricey.
Here is one item i found on newegg Newegg.com - Swiftech H20-220 Compact CPU Water Cooling Kit - Water Cooling its the only one i could find that was i7. You might also what to check with TigerDirect search for a website called extremecooling. Also check out this site too PC Water Cooling Products and Water Cooling kits at HeatsinkFactory.com Just one thing make sure you read, read, and read the more info I have read about water cooling has made me start to rethink the whole idea.

If stable now as long as you control heat you should have no problems and you won't need warranty replacement. But if it dies, and they determine it was due to heat (not hard if they desire to check) open wide your wallet.

For optimum water cooling performance, it is generally recommended to buy quality parts individually and not as a kit. The downside is that this route is more expensive.

Air cooling is quicker, easier and much cheaper. It all depends on how far you wish to go.
