|b1lk1||OK, now I understand your predicament. The radiator is about 1/2" larger than the fan so this will not work for you. You will need to mount a radiator externally to do what you want. Hope this helps.|

The case is a APEVIA X-QPACK2. It's a microATX build that needs to be quiet. The case would need some modding due to it's size but I'm ok with that. The fan is seriously against the PSU and the outside case (left and right, top and bottom). No room whatsoever if the radiator is even a mm larger than the fan. It looked as though the radiator stuck out a bit larger than the fan. Really hard to tel in photos. Offset might will not help.
I ordered a Zalman 8700 but I would still like to try the Pure. I was also looking at the Thermaltake PW 850i but a little shy about doing the "real" water cooling in this build.
I'll get registered...sorry for the Unregistered reply.

|b1lk1||What case do you have? The fan is as wide as the radiator, it mostly depends on the location of your side-panel tabs. They do ship an offset bracket with the Pure.|

Size of the Pure?
Hey guys, that was a great write-up on the Pure. I have a case where the 120mm fan is wedged into a corner. On one side there is the case on the other there is the PSU. It looks as if the radiator is larger than the fan and wouldn't fit in my situation. It will offset right? I have no room left and right so I think I may have talked myself out of this unit. I need something whisper quiet for a stock Quad Core.

So if not CoolIt Freezone, which Liquid cooler
Thanks for all the advice, but then now, in this product class water/liquid cooling systems, which would be a great start : Zalman, Koolance, Silverstone?
Thanks for any opinions.

Hey werty316, Chuck Norris may go killing, but does he blend???

Anyway, I'm registered now, as you can see. If I used this correctly. Thanks for all the reponses.

The Bigwater 760i is a horrible watercooling kit as it performs around the same level as a highend cooler which isn't a good thing considering the price tag of the Bigwater 760i.
EDIT: ditto with buying a real watercooling setup.

|b1lk1||The Freezone Elite works well enough for Quads, but it is more for silence than max cooling. I my opinion, your best option is to buy a full on real watercooling setup. Next would be the Elite and third would be a bigwater.|

It's easy to register so we can see the same name and respond better using your previous posts

I've used the CoolIt Freezone for just about a year now and it has done an excellent job of cooling the CPU and as an exit air fan for the case.

Freezone Cooler vs. Bigwater 760i???
I was wondering reading both reveiewson the Freezone Coolers, the Pure and the elite, how they both would compare to the bigwater 760i?
My QX9650 is only 45nm, but OC'ed still gets quite hot under load.
So it worth investing in the Freezone Elite, and replace the Bigwater, which is anyway quite load when turned up to full cooling capacity.

|b1lk1||Whether or not anyone agrees with us, I still feel very comfortable stating that this product's ability to keep that furnace of a Quad under 90C (mostly under 80C) is impressive. You could almost certainly mod it with a louder fan and get better results. The silence is the key thing that just completely won me over.|

|Rob Williams||We chose to use the 65nm QX6850 because it's hot as hell. No sense using an expensive CPU cooler on a CPU that doesn't require advanced cooling.|
|02-28-2008 09:03 PM|
I think this product will really shine on the 45nm chips which are considerably less toasty to begin with.
