My Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane is the 65W version. It's overclocked 10% and running Folding @ Home 24/7. It's currently using the stock heatsink/fan and thermal pad... it's not silent... but quiet enough that I can't be arsed to go to the loft to find an 80L and decent goo to reduce the noise. Pete ...

With a low power CPU no doubt it would work..... Thoroughbred 'B' is not low in terms of heat output. Low heat output chips would probably hamper the effect. Why have a water cooling system without a pump anyway. Sorry, I thought this was Silent PC Review..... :roll: Fins on a standard heatsink wou...
