Good day to all

At my intension to build water-cooled PC (or PCs), using an Intel Quad Q6600 or a Q6700 and another PC with a Pentium Extreme Edition 965, I was thinking to provide a suitable closed-circuit refrigerating unit, which shall provide cooling for the water cooling radiator of the system.
However, in order to do it, it is necessary for me to know what is the amount of heat dissipation from these processors. For a start, it would be OK to know this at least at their normal operating status, i.e. without overclocking, but at their maximum (or near maximum, say about 90-95%) load. Then I can apply some thermodynamics and try to find some figures when overclocked.

But I need at least these starting values to begin with. Is there any source of information for that?
Thanks in advance.

Whoa, how much are you planning to overclock this thing?
The number on the Q6600 is 105W TDP as the maximum recommended amount of energy.
On the Q6700, the TDP is identical.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_design_power for more info)
I am actually not entirely sure that the TDP is the correct number for what you are doing, but it is the closest I could find.
