    heh
    Ok But Im Soon Going To Get My Quad Core Q6600 By Christmas And I Worry

    What Are The Normal Temp For It? - 20C-30C? 40c Is Not Good for me

    Also Should I Use The Fan Included With The Quad Or Stick To My Stupid Coolermaster X Dream 4 xD Whats The Diff? Does It Look The Same?

    Or Buy another Heatsink =.=
    Usually Getting Quad Core Will Take me Longer time to get a new Heatsink

    If you don't like 40 degree temps, your going to need on hell of a cooler. Anything up to 60 degrees is perfectly normal.

    It's hard to say since we don't have any pictures of your rig, we don't know what the ventilation's like, how many fans you're running ect.
    But i reckon it should do, keeps my E4500 in the low 20's at stock

    6 intakes holy shit :eek: haha you couldn't get more cold air in that thing if you put a desk fan next to it so as for cooling you're fine on that for now.
    What cooler are you running for your CPU, intel stock?
    Because if you are get rid of it, i'd feel better about the temperatures if i heated my cpu with a lighter while it was running :hmm:

    I'd switch more of those fans to exhaust positions to balance things up a bit. Depends where you have space though - you don't want to be putting intakes right next to exhausts or anything like that.

    lol good question :p
    The zalman is a really good bet, if you can get hold of one get an artic freezer pro because those are really good and cheap too.

    AC 7 Pro is indeed a good CPU-cooler for the money. It's only a little bit loud.

    If you need some more cooling performance, go for a Coolermaster Z600 with 2 x 120 mm fan. Noise depends on chosen fans.

    A Scythe Mugen is also a great cooler. The fan that comes with it is also really silent.

    Xigmatek also has some good coolers for the money... SH-1283 or 1284 are good ones :)

    I don't know the prices in the UK, but I think they are for the most part the same as in Holland...

    For a cooler I'd recommend the Coolermaster V8 if you want the best possible air cooler on the market. It's not very loud either.

    That should be fine as that PSU carries high amperage on the +12V rails. It's about on the limit though don't think of SLi for instance.

    Whoops didn't read the mobo correctly.

    Well 8800GT draws about 130W under load, a Q6600 about 90W stock say about 140W under load at 3.4GHz. That's 270W for proc+graphics alone.

    About 15W for each hard drive 50W for mainboard 10W Optic drive. And you have to consider the amperage draw rather than just overall wattage.

    I'd say it's comfortable with the hardware you have but as I say it wouldn't handle a 2-card system or a 4870X2/GTX295/9800GX2 for instance.
