@PCModderMike - How is your CPU block performing, just bought the exact same one and I hope I made a good purchase, was more a case of, it was in my budget tongue.gif

Performing really well I think biggrin.gif Honestly I haven't used many other blocks out there beside EK's, but from what I've read and seen it's on par with a lot of the other high end blocks out there. It's cooling an i7 920, and we all know 1366 runs hot devil.gif LOL, max stable OC I can get is 4.0GHz, my load temps under folding with -bigadv enabled is around 60 Celsius on all cores with an ambient temp of 26 Celsius. Folding stresses my system harder than any kind of P65 or Intel Burn Test has done. Running Intel Burn Test or heavy gaming temps on the 920 reach around 55 Celsius.

My mind did not get that far, thanks for the info that helps a lot, more efficient as well. Maby I can run a 90 degree compression from the res outlet, then down into the bottom rad like you said, no idea if a pump will like a 90 degree bend right at the outlet though. This is definitely a strange setup but that's why it makes it more unique I suppose.

@PCModderMike - Thanks for the info, puts me at ease atleast smile.gif

still thinking whether to go double bay res with a blu-ray + fan controller in mind.

You can, depending on how large your motherboard is. You could mount the pump vertically between the HDD/5.25 bays and the motherboard. Positioning it so the ports are verticle (meaning the pump body is facing toward the floor of the chassis).

Then put the rad underneath inside the case, with the other set of fans pushing of course...

You don't have to remove that bay for the rad, but it looks allot cleaner. Is it just a couple of screws?

Yes just a couple of screws and it will come out. You do not need to remove it though, at least for the rad Im using. But this pic was taken while working on the build, I eventually put it back because that's where I put my fan controller.

Yeah, that is going to be the location of my fan controller as well. Thanks for the info.
