lets not forget that a full loop introduces at the very least maintance which can be time consuming. Closed loop coolers negate this issue.

Yes, I had thought of ordering from O/s but the freight, handling and insurance made it just as expensive. Not to mention the returns issues if I had a problem as warranties are generally country specific frown.gif
Doesn't that all also apply to the closed loop cooler?

It's a thread about the mod; I believe questioning the other possibilities is a valid topic.

Naw, its all good. I love the 'mod' so I guess the Hybrid is the next logical step for me smile.gif

IMO any discussions in relation to cooling should be incuraged. The options need to be presented in order to see which best fits ones needs. Having options given is never a bad thing. I for one would not stiffle discussions because i favor on solution over another. It makes the thread stronger and gives it validity. I would hope that no one posting here feels discuraged from expressing their opion.

I like the way you think thumb.gif

Have you considered applying for a mod position (seriously).

thanks sethy, most kind of you wink.gif

perhaps one day

Sethy, I would like to see how it works out. Artic mentions heat sinking for VRAM and VRMs, but shows no heatsinks. I wonder if you will need to purchase more. It woud be neat if you had access to a temperature meter.

I bought this, it's a bit large and the software is crude.: Amazon PC USB Powered Thermometer Temperature Sensor Data Log (TEMPer1) $10


The fellow estimating the custom loop cost left too many things out. TIM, tubing, fittings, fans, optional fan controller, resevoir or fill port, a bigger case or external radiator mounting hardware, more RAD ($50 is not enough) and appearance items.
I would prefer a better pump. I would also go for a big rad like the MORA3 and hang it on the case side panel. In for a penny, in for a pound. Why not be effective and get more bang for the buck?

I was just pricing out the most expensive items; TIM, tubing, fittings and a reservoir aren't that expensive. I forgot to add fans to the list; that would be at lest $30 extra.

I was surprised how quickly I was able to mount a Kuhler 920 onto my GTX 580 using zip ties (about 15 minutes). I've ordered a pair of brackets from Dwood, so I will need to remount the cooler when they arrive in the mail.

As for a custom loop, just leak testing alone is enough of a hassle for me to shy away from it. I'm considering upgrading to a GTX 690 to avoid all the heat my 580s are producing.
