Last year I built my new system, based around a quad-core i7-950 using the stock CPU cooler. Last night, I put together a new system for my nephew, based around a 6-core i7-980....using a liquid cooling system. I was given the stock i7-980 CPU cooler. It is a ton bigger than the stock cooler that came with my i7-950.
Will this cooler work on my i7-950 (same socket type) and will I see any noticable drop in my CPU temps? I checked my MOBO and it will hold the cooler. Just want to make sure it will work and will give me worth while resultes before I tear my system apart and do the swap.
