    Default Core i7 965 heat killer

    My custom Boreas was delivered this evening, I had them remove the the dual VGA heat sinks and tubing, and extend the CPU tubing by 8 inches. By removing the VGA cooling leaves all that cooling power going right to the processor


    The first thing that I noticed that was new, is that they now have the pump mounted to the unit, so you no longer have to drill holes in your case to mount the pump. CoolIt was also nice enough to include their new LGA 1366 mounting hardware

    The max power draw from the Boreas is is 150W and it can dissipate 600w on the cold side.
    With the VGA cooling removed, I expect to see temps in the teens.

    With the Elite and 6TEC units temps at idle are 28c-28c-17c-17c so with the Boreas and 12 TEC units I am hoping to see at least 18c-18c-10c-10c but I could be wrong and it could be even lower.

    I have attached a photo of the unit and the mounting hardware, what I have to do now is find the right case. I thought I had one, but seeing as the pump is now mounted to the unit, I may have to find a diff way to mount the Boreas, or find a diff case.

    That is so huge Dr D !!!
    but those temps are really impressive...post us your max overclock
    in the i7 Overclock thread i created

    Saw an article intel managed easy 4.6ghz with watercooled i7 so i presume u might reach that kinda of range if possible But getting it stable might be an issue

    Beautiful... Simply beautiful.

    Just curious, but what are the dimensions of the Boreas? I've seen what they list on their site, but there isn't anything showing how tall it is with the mounting, or how wide it is including the fans. I am thinking of getting one later on after the new build in another 6 months or so. I think I might have found a way to put it in the TJ-10.

    Hi Bully, Jeremy

    Its large, but it does look larger in the photo, I'll post the dimensions in a few mins. As far as mounting it in the TJ-10, there's no way, if there was, I would have kept the case.

    Welcome to pure OC, look under new posts in our forums, you will see Boreas Temps core i7 965, with a lot of screenshots and photos. I have only had mine to 3.6 GHz ,but there are some screeshots there with temps at 4.4GHz.

    I wanted the best cooling possible because it gets so hot in here during the summer. Last year when it hit 100 degrees, it was 106 in here , but the Elites kept my QX9650s nice and cool.

    The core i7 is a diff story, it runs hotter, so I went back to the Boreas which is doing it's job very well as the screenshot shows. I also uploaded the other guys 4.4Ghz screenshot for you. I hope to have the 2nd Boreas installed on my 940 this weekend if I have the time .

    Hi Stubs, you install it and that's it, it's a sealed unit so you do not have to keep checking your coolant. I had my two units custom built, with the VGA cooling removed. You can also buy a bare bones unit and install your own tubing, heatsinks, and pump. You can find all of their products, and more information on the Boreas on their site. http://www.coolitsystems.com

    If you want barebone, you have to order directly from CoolIt. Retailers don't carry them any more, the one for retail are all plumbed with a CPU block/MTEC/PUMP.

    You can contact shawn.bouvier@coolitsystems.com or jon.stanley@coolitsystems.com to get a barebone or they will tailor it to your needs.

    i still cant figure out how you got temps of 9 9 4 4 at your optimized default speed with the stock boreas. howd you do it doood? at 3.2 ghz with the boreas at 100% idle the lowest it will go for me is 19c on the coolant and 22 22 24 25 cpu temps via RealTemp.

    Well to start with, if you check the date on that post, it was Jan lol which means it was winter time. It was 70 degrees in here, but my temps stayed like that until the end of March.

    Even now if I set it back to high, temps are at 14c 14c 10c 10c but I start getting condensation so I have left my settings at med for the summer, and have close to the same temps your getting at high setting. Mine are 25c 25c 23c 23c at med setting.

    What kind of thermal paste are you using? if it's the stock CoolIt paste,that could be your problem. I use Zalman STG-1, it applies thin, so cover both the processor and the heatsink. I use this on all of my customers machines also. It comes in a small bottle with a brush attached to the cap. You get enough to use it maybe 6-8 times for $7 depending where you buy it.
