Good recommendation Konspiracy

Also one other thing you can do is to get a tube that runs from the rear fan to the heatsink fan and then make sure they are all running the same direction. This will either make it so that you are pumping in straight cold air from outside the case (works best) or pumping the hot heatsink air right out of the case (helps the mosfets which in turn helps the cpu).

Also I wanted to show you this. It is hideous and ugly and I would never do this LOL but I did use black construction paper to do the same thing on my brothers 212+ it will raise the air pressure and cool more effectively. Someone on this forum used Jewel cases cut to fit and that looked amazing! There is a more expensive cooler that uses a similar design to the 212 that is sealed. Also my Ultra Chiltech was sealed with side panels as well!

I did something like that with my A70 tower cooler.
And I mean the Pci empty slot protectors things, remove them. The OCN fan guru dude did tests with that and saw a gain.

FROZENCPU stocks them if you buy it make sure you find a 10% off coupon that is what I used.

I love the kit it brought my temps down 15-20c even better is that its silent if you want it to be. The pump on mine makes NO noise at all I did make sure that I never ran the pump dry. I would probably buy the RX240 not the RS240 if it is in stock but that was not an option for me since it was not in stock. I think you should already have 1 Cooler Master PWM fan because of your current cooler which means you should get 1 more and use them instead of the stock fans because they have a higher static pressure than most other fans which is very important for the RX rad and even the RS and because they are PWM which means you can run them down really low. I do not hear mine at all when they are at less than 40% duty. Also as the recent PWM fan shootout showed the CM PWM fan is about the best one there is if you look at the DB at 1300rpm compared to others at 1300RPM don't look at the duty % the person who did the tests should have tested them all at a specific low and specific hi point to make they where easier to compare. Remember that there must be a 3dB difference between 2 sound levels for the human ear to tell the difference so if you care about the sound lvl again nothing actually beats those CM fans especially at $10.

would the h100 be a viable option?... it would be push pull, ive already got the fans and the space; main reasoning is that i like the warranty if it leaks.

I got 4.1ghz with 1.32v max temps in games 61*c. Can't go higher because the CPU will be throttling.

I bought one recently to just make sure it fits your chassi and also invest in some more fans for push & pull.

My idle temp is 8c @ 4.4 Ghz hardly go above 38+ when i'm playing games.

So what is your final speed, voltage peak, and temp? Your computer looks freaking awesome, BTW! I wish mine looked like that...

after drilling a few holes the xspc rx360 will fit...a h100 wont be an issue.

nothing is final yet, h100 isnt here, im at 1.35v 4.3ghz, 29c idle 53c load. hopefully with the h100 i can get some more out of it.

thanks 2advanced, its mostly the case but it did take some time. might pull the board when the h100 arrives and reroute the cpu power cable.
