CPU-300-H06 fit socket 1336?

Postby WyoRip » Mon Feb 02, 2009 9:43 pm

Will the CPU-300-H06 from my pc2-650 fit with any adapter on the Intel socket 1366? Might be my decision between upgrading to socket 775 instead. Hate to take all my waterblocks apart. Is this a FORCED upgrade of waterblocks?

I don't believe there is an appropriate adapter kit for the 300. However it was also not designed around today's CPU's, it will not work as efficiently on dual quad core CPU's as the 330 and new water blocks. If your upgrading it is in your best interest to replace the cpu block at this time.

I don't see that any of the NEW coolers are for the low flow pumps that are on the PC2-650's.
Which cooler would you suggest for LOW flow?

Thanks

340/345 are intended for lower flow pumps. The 345 is labeled as high flow because it is less restrictive than the 350. The 350 would probably cause issues.

The CPU-300-H06 is marketed as being able to handle a 300W heat source. Given the 130W TDP of the i7, i'll venture to say it would be sufficient for *any* desktop CPU.

I'm still running this same CPU block with the legacy external EXOS (1) for going on 4-5 years now... It seems more likely that this is actually just a matter of demand. To any extent, it's an unfortunate situation as I just don't see myself dumping X amount on a new block that still requires me to dump Y more for an adapter to make it work.
