what sort of temp drop we looking at?


i know i screwed up on the installation, the tim must be moved around badly, so im going to get some IC diamond, use that, and do lapping, if i get 10 degrees off with alll that, i will be extremely happy
Temps depend on heat load and rad performance which I know nothing about on the Corsair line.

It's a pretty small rad though, so you can probably assume 10-20 water/air deltas and for rough figures you can assume the air flow gain will reduce that water delta that much. Push pull alone can net a 20-30% improvement with the same fan, so going from a single corsair fan to push/pull GTs could be a noticable gain. Not likely going to see 10C, but you might see 5 depending on all the many guesses and variables.
