Personaly. I'm about sure you have hit the peak of performance with your hybrid water system. Yes I have seen lots of claims that lower NB temps will drop CPU temps a bit, but the amout seems change form system to system.

What fan are you using on your Rad? I know that rads tend to cool better with a 120x38mm fan, the high static pressure gives a great boost.

A RL friend of mine (also a fourm member) mounted his rad on the outside of the case, droped his temps quite a bit.

I'm taking my automotive skillz and sharing it with you about rad's. In road racing, there are problems of car's not holding a proper operating temp(overheating in this case). When a radiator is exposed to real high temps(like running at readline, then slowing down for a corner) they can "heat soak". meaning that there is sooo much heat, that you have to increasse the volume of liqued in saidd rad, thuse lots of racing car's use HUGE rad's(like a full water loop compaired to a hybrid rad) so they can have more fluid to pick up and hold heat. mind you this is a VERY dumbed down!! alot more involved but that one of the things rad's bring to the table.


Long story short...Hybrid water coolers make me thing of the radiator in a geo metro...while a full blow water loop is like a Leet Leet top end racing rad
witch do you think cools better when pushed to the extreeme? small rads heatsoak easy.
