Right now I have a Duron at 950 at 1.9 volts on an Abit KT7A. The cooler is an OCZ Monster 2 and it runs at full load 46C. I've been searching for a good cooler and these are what i am currently looking at The Original Aquastealth, Swiftech MC462, and the Taisol CGK-742092. I'm on a fairly limited budget and would like your opinion on which is best for the Duron. I want to get at least a gig out of this so try to keep that in mind. Thanks.
Water cooling is always better than air cooling and much more fun to setup, run, and show off. My vote goes to the Aquastealth. I have the Aquastealth II and I love it.
Another question: copper or aluminum waterjacket? Is there a big difference in performance?
Copper is almost twice as thermally conductive as aluminum. Also, use the same metal for the block as you use in the radiator core so you don't get a dissimilar metal reaction.
