I've been having a series of crashes on my Z420 whilst rendering 3D models and generally whilst using the 3D software (cinema 4D). It's using 100% of all 8 cores when rendering and it overheats and crashes, with no notice. I'm wanting to look into the HP liquid cooling solution but I can't find it anywhere online, I've really not got a clue where to get it from and I'm really hoping someone can help me out here by pointing out where to get them because I can't even find anything on the HP site? I'm not willing to alter the affinity of cinema 4D to less cores because I'm told by the IT guy it will just overheat it anyway and it will be at 100% for longer which could lead to huge problems. Oh and software that throttles processes won't work because I'm on windows 7. All help will be massively appreciated!

HP does offer liquid cooling for some workstations. You might want to contact HP Support or HP Sales for availability of water cooling for your particular model Z420. Review this manual page 6.
The E5-1620 only has four cores (eight threads using hyperthreading). Review the above referenced manual page 3.
Check with the application software manufacturer and find out what they suggest for helping with your issue. Will a processor with more cores help? Are there other ways and technology (SSD or a faster video card, TELSA GPU processor) that will assist with the rendering process?

same here. Europe..
WHY EVERTHING IS SO RIDICULOUSLY COMPLICATED with HP? just tired of HP labirynths! whenever I click on chat buttons I'm promped to search via insane complicated ways for products or help on my own. I just need to buy/order the cooling thing.
liquid cooling for 420 (E5-1620) - no pricings found, no options to order online, nothing.
and nobody cares.
showt3k if you managed to get it, please share some info.

HP do not sell liquid cooling for their kits, simple as that. I've now moved to Alienware and never looked back. Unparalleled performance and still room to pack it with more power. Not that you need it.

that's one of the solutions I'm going to give a thought. tired of sitting on a mashine every day (from day one) that makes a sound like I'm on a plane. even if I'm just browsing the web.. just silly.
