Hi,

I have been mounting  the Seidon 120M Watercooler on my PII 965 and one of the screws that are screwed to the backplate is loose and can't be adjusted.  So 3 of the mounting screws are fully screwed, and one of them is loose. Do you think it migth be an issue? So far temps seems fine... 34°C idle and 45°C at full load ( with regular cooler was at 52°C ).

Shouldn't be, liquid coolers use a high mounting pressure system, so even two screws at opposing corners would be sufficient, though I wouldn't go lugging it around to LAN parties.

ok great!your comment encouraged me to oc it then.

So far i have overclocked it to 3.8ghz very stable, without issues and leaving voltages at "auto". temps seems fine 49°C under 100% load I think the cooler has room for more. Room temps are about 25°C.

htlink multi @ 10x

cpu-nb multi @ 12x

cpu-multi @ 19x

thanks a lot black_zion
