You could always get one of those Swiftech rad boxes and hang it on the back of the case...The reason I'm water cooling is for the lower temp's for sure but I just like to tinker with things...I like to learn new things half the time I screw them up but that is the only way you can learn..

Yea...i really want something that will fit within my case and will perform as good as it looks (which is obviously nice since I have a side window )

How much was your nautilus and where did you get it? ANNNND what are your temps compared to air? lol, sorry for all the ?'s

Hey man I don't mind answering questions, thats why I'm here I love talking about this stuff.I got my Nautilus from ZipZoom&Fly a couple of months ago for about $159.99 w/shp...I've put about another $150.00 in it .I sold the pump and res& rad to a friend for $70.00 so that off sets the upgrade costs some...The rig in my sig is the one I'm putting togather now have all the parts just need a Os, been kinda wating on Vista. I wanted to get my WC set up the way I want it first to....Right now I'm on a s/754 3200 Newcastle they run pretty hot.. At stock v-core with the air cooling I was getting 32c idle & 48c load..With the water I'm getting 36c load & 28c idle ambient temp of 21.1c for both. so that is a healthy difference. That is just using 1 120 pro rad .I'll be adding another dual rad to this loop and a Stinger water block..Now note that is with a heavily modded Nautilus it's not really a Nautilus anymore..I got sidetracked on building this water cooler and kind of let my new rig slide for the time being...The only bad thing is I've started modding my new case..High gloss black Ultra Alumininus case, it's kind of like a Chemming 602 but with 120mm fans..I need to start focusing on putting my new rig togather..

HAHAHA! That is truly ghetto-fabulous snerp!!! lol...

See I don't want to have that kind of look in my case. I'd prefer to mount the rad to the back 120mm fan slot, and mount the pump on the bottom, and then run my tubes up to the CPU...with the res somewhere in there. How did you make the coolant UV reactive?

And also, would it be beneficial to mount a 120 on BOTH sides of the rad mounted to the rear of the case? So one is pushing and the other is pulling? Or would this create a vacuum/retarded effect?

It looked like death, but it worked well.

I like to run premixed MCT-5. It's colored green, but you can buy UV dye in a bunch of different colors to add to your water. Fans on both sides is the best, but if you mount on one side you are best off having your fans pull.

Thanks for all your help guys. I'm goin to bed, but I'll post up a few things tomorrow that I would like to put into my setup. I'm looking at a DD Black Ice rad or a Swiftek rad and a DD mag pump for now.

I want to run 1/2" tubing for maximum flow, but I dunno yet. If I can keep this under $150 or so...then maybe I'll do it. Otherwise, it's AC Freezer7 for me with FM91 and lapped to the max

Here's an easy way for you to change out BTU's to Watts.... BTU/hour-2-Watts is BTU/hour x 0.293 = Watts....Might help you on picking a rad..So if you were looking at the BI Pro 2 it would be 2856 BTU/hour=836.808 Watts....And the BIX 2...6270BTU/hour = 1837.11 Watts...
