Hi there,

I have an Aurora R1. Recently, CPU temps on full load are around 80C. Used to be 60C. Cleaning out the case and replacing the cooling paste (arctic silver 5) did not help.

So my guess is the liquid cooling system has seen its best days. Can anyone tell me where I can order a new one (could not find it on the Dell / Alienware website)?

Or is there a fully compliant alternative (given the specific Alienware BIOS and connections)?

Thanks and happy new year!

What I have found out so far:
- Dell does not sell its stock cooling to out-of-warranty customers
- the stock cooler for the R4 is the 5560W Asetek, and is (probably) compatible with the R1
- one guy succesfully built-in a Corsair H80i cooler in his R1

To make my original questions more specific:
- I could find the 5560W Asetek available in the US, does anyone know where I can get one in Europe?
- The H80i is a bit pricy. I don't want to upgrade, I'm just looking for a solid replacement. Does anyone have experience with a Corsair H55 or H60? Or the very affordable Cooler Master Seidon 120V v2?

Thanks in advance for your help!

PS: I'm running my i7 920 @ 3.33Ghz (3.5 Ghz /w turbo), default vcore.
