    have a read through this thread first
    PureOC Watercooling Showdown

    also if you could tell us how much you would like to to spend and also fill out the specsof your rig in control panel

    oh, and BTW Welcome to PureOverclock

    TBH if you would like to go with internal WC the only setup i could recommend is swiftech 120 compact ( coz thats the onl one that would fit internally). its around 120$ on newegg and it will allow you to push your q6600 to around 3,4 GHz ( depending on voltage). Or you would have to go with external rad ( 120.2 or more) and it will allow you to go further with O/C.

    Yeah if you can tell us your budget, case and what else are you planning to cool beside Q6600?
    I notice you live in Japan so you might have to give us the figures in US dollars.

    id say about 150$ and i just fixed the specs prob. yea the case doesnt have much room internaly so i would be guessing an external system might be best, i live in japan but im in the air force so everything for me is US dollars

    ok, if you are willing to go external you can go ( IMHO):
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108076

    ($199)
    or

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108105

    ($139)

    the diffrence is ( as far as I can see) is the apogee CPU block which is one of the best CPU blocks on the market. thats my two cents. I know I may sound like a hypocrite ( coz I'm using Thermaltake) but from reviews I've read Swiftech is damn good company, unfortunatelly I didn't come across it when I was building my rig

    Soo, the radiator can be mounted on the outside of your case at the back , where your rear fan is located. You put the pump inside the case and route the tubes in via PCI hole

    Most of my WC parts are Swiftech, they performance well and affordable

    Ok, if you're only to cool the Q6600 then the Swiftech H20-120 compact is good enough the get it OC to 3.6Ghz. This is so depend on the ambient temp to get better temp though. You can install this at the back of exhaust fan, if this fan is 120mm size? This kit only cost $140 and if you go with the Compact H20-220 version then you have to install it external at the same back exhaust fan via rad box, it's included. This kit will cost more around $180 giving or take, it's depending where you shop at.
