Yeah - watercooling will help any processor potentially be able to run faster/cooler if set up properly.

Water was the answer for my 3200+ 32 bit.

I was having prob's with temp's with stock cooling. How about 70c under load so i went to a OCZ Gladiator. That knock bout 5 to 7c off. After a fairly large up grade i am now running a Koolance pc2-650 with a 3/8" tube. I have gained another 100mhz which i'm now at 2.5gig's and under load i might reach 52c while running 2 prime95 torture test's. SO i would say if you want to OC watre is the way to go.
