I am currently running i believe to be a stock cooler on a 3.4 965 x4 p2 I am idle at 38to40 my full load peak is up to 48c

I tryed to over clock 10 % and the temp was higher and didnt see any gain

do you guys think that a corsair  hrdro series 55 would be a good gain for me as far as temp and performance?

To go along with your other post, the H55 or H60 would be the way to go.

If you want to see how poorly the Corsair H series coolers are, check the link below. For 2/3rds the price you can buy a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO that out-performs the H60 and never leaks coolant to damage your PC.

http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2705&page=5

Check the Corsair forum threads to see how many people have experienced 2-3 or more failures of Corsair liquid coolers and the fact Corsair refuses to disclose the failure rate on the liquid coolers.

A technically educated person would never add a liquid cooler to a PC when a std. heatsink/fan cools better, costs less and never leaks coolant to damge your PC hardware. Unfortunately some PC enthusiasts are technically challenged and into fads like those who bought Pet rocks.



-------------------------

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

And there's the same copy paste response which contains misinformation and completely ignores the fact that the top 6 AMD heatsinks, by Frostytech are all liquid. You can completely ignore AMDforMe. Also, do you see the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO?

Not to mention even AMD recommends CLC's for the 9000 series Processors.

This guy is such a nub!

Not to mention that tower style heatsinks have their own drawbacks, such as requiring a large case, usually the inability to use a side intake, and a serious risk of substantial damage if the heatsink becomes detached and falls (more of a hazard with Intel systems due to their idiotic mounting system). Of course air cooling will always be much more dependent upon ambient air temperature (and case airflow) than liquid, and those of us who live in areas where the summer temperature can hit triple digits, liquid cooling is a godsend.

Not to mention...  why should we check the Corsair forums for "facts" that you claim, but never supply...  Next time you claim a "fact", maybe you should link to it.  If not, maybe you should keep your opinions to yourself.

My 2c.

 

I own a H50 for the last 2 years running it on my 8350 with OC. It is setup in push and pull, i have 2 Cisco 6000 power supply fans connected on it. These are not your normal pansy fans you buy from your local PC shop. My temps on my CPU under no OC is idle 5deg celsius 30-35deg celsium under load. OC it idles at 15 and 60 under load and its OC to 4.8.

 

Dont want to stir the hornets nest but the comment regarding Corsair H series is not correct. i would recommend any of the H series the H50 might be at the bottom of the range but i have yet to see one of the higher series with lower temps than me. We have just gone into our winter season my cpu now idles at 3 deg celsius under normal. That is really cool if you guys dont believe me i can post some screenshots with coretemp and hw monitor of my temps.

 

You wont make a mistake with the Corsair H series!!

 

Hope it helps you in your decision.

I agree,

My old H50 has been going strong for the last few years and now its keeping my 8320 OC to 4.2 cool and happy.

You really can't go wrong with one these
