hi all
can u guys tell me if the the coolermaster aquagate is ok i like that the zalman one saves space but the aquagate is so cheap (for a amd 64 3500 when i get it)

http://www.coolermaster.com/in...LT=e...LC-U01+Aquagate' ">http://www.coolermaster.com/in...itle=+ALC-U01+Aquagate /tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' /> (£117.00)

oh and is the amd 64 3500 venice SKT 939- K8 or K7 ?
and does the water cooling system run hotter if u connect more stuff eg vga card cpu, northbrige(chipset) ?
and is it more efficiant than air cooling ?
could u get bellow 30 centagrade ?

The A64 is a K8
The water will get warmer when you add more things in line yes, the temp rise will be determined by the gpu / chipset. And if you've oc'd or not, some chipsets run hot also.
Water is far more effiecient then air cooling.
If you want to get the cpu below 30 the room has to be lower then 30. The water can only cool to room temp.

Exactly. But by the way, that is a good water cooling kit, just as long as you make sure it pumps the water well enough to cool everything you want it to. Running the water through the cpu then the chipset is no good, you should have seperate lines for each device (easy to do if you have enough gpm, just use a splitter /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' /> )
