Thanks! cheers.gif and yes I have 3/8 ID tube going to/on the chipset/MOS blocks... on the x48 setup I had with the q9550 @ 4.1 Ghz the 3/8 tube made no difference. I have a ton of fittings anyway (same ID as 3/8 tubing). biggrin.gif The i7 920 runs waaaaay cooler than the q9550 did though. Even at 1.445V the 920 max stress load only hits 53C and I have the pumps/fans at 50-60% lol. Kind of like going from the gtx 480 GPU to the gtx 670 as far as heat output goes thumb.gif

I am slowly expanding the amount of CM Storm products i own, my Sonuz headset arrived today,
sadly though the notch that held the microphone in place and stopped it from fulling out was broken on arrival frown.gif
have emailed CM Europe CS to see if they will send me a replacement microphone (hopefully they can)

is corsair h100 worth it or is it better to save the money and go for a real watercooling setup like others have in their troopers? how often do you have to maintenance it? im ordering asus crosshair v formula-z, 8-16gb corsair vengeance 1600 ddr3, Kingston SSD, win7 CD next weekend then waiting til the FX8300's are released, til then im running my X4 955, since most are probably running the high end mobo's anyone got an estimate of what it costs to do a watercooling setup? or guide me to everything thats needed(figured frozencpu is best site to use for this?)



GoodInk: if i dont connect the modelers brand led's to the on/off switch, what other ways are there to power them? watched the videos... shouldnt be any reason i cant do it.

The AX1200 finally arrived with the white sleeved cables so I was finally able to finish the build.

How do you like the corsair fan in the rear? Better airflow?

'real' water cooling biggrin.gif

It took me around 4 hours to change the graphics card and 240 radiator, currently doing a leak test (completed) and a bleed run sleepysmiley03.gif
sorry..I'm a bit too tired atm, the pills aren't helping either..
anyway.. pix:



oh, I replaced the 240 rad with a XSPC EX240 multi port but I need an extender for the bottom port so I can use that as a drain. I wanted to use the valve but unfortunately it's too long.
And I changed the XFX HD6850 to a XFX HD6870 XXX edition, mainly because a couple of months ago something fell off the card eek.gif and I didn't want to risk it.
Although still running fine I also noticed it started to bend twist and warp wink.gif

cheers.gif

I say get a real watercooling if you are thinking about it, I would get a XSPC RayStorm D5 EX240 kit. I know it's more money but the WB is much nicer than the Rasa and the pump is way better. If the pump ever goes out you can replace it with out having to buy a new res too. It's a much stronger pump too if you end up WC'ing your GPU. If you don't want to spend that much then the RS240 kit will still cool your CPU great, the pumps can be hit or miss with noise, if you get a good one they are super quiet. The fans are good but do make some noise at anything over 75%. I would just buy new tubing right off the bat, that XSPC stuff sucks, get Durelene, people have been having great results with it, If you want color get Mayhem's dyes.

As for maintance, once the tubing goes then you will need to change it out, other than that not much. Good tubing will last 6-12 months.

As for the LED's any 12v will work, you can connect them to your PSU, he sells molex connectors, or a fan header. For fan headers just cut some old fan's wire off and use that.

Not with out modding. The Trooper is set up for 2x240's not a 360.
