I also took I guess a somewhat better picture of my PC.



I also fixed my signature. Look so much better and cleaner. I would keep the flames of the original Ivy Bridge Owners signature but it would look off in the design.

Nice wire management! Can't get mine to look that clean, there's no tray behind the drive cages.

On my closed loop, do you think the tubing should be on the bottom or on top like how it is?

I like it the way you have, if for no reason other than the fact that you can read it facing that way. That 200mm fan is exhaust, so i doubt those small diameter tubes are causing much of an airflow issue. Really makes me want to build a custom loop for my CPU, then add in a water cooled GPU down the road...been looking at a 280mm radiator which is complete overkill for a 3570k.

I bought this piece of crap to keep me from buying a full one before the other things I need. smile.gif Haha, I really hate this thing. Bad temps.

Isn't it essentially an H60? It cools better than my Hyper 612, but it's only like $20 shy of an h100 or h80, which cool far better. I don't know, I've seen an h100 in my case in push/pull, so temping...just can't justify the $160 for it and 4 good fans.

It's an H80. It is basically an Antec 920 just renamed. So an H80 basically. It's ok I guess, not terrible. I just want my real WC setup! I got this for only $50. That's an insane price. A CL that's on par with the H80 for only $50? That's a good deal. Waaaay better than my Evo!

yea man if your gonna spend that much get a big silent, air cooler (phanteks, silver arrow, d14, assassin) or go full water cooling for $20 more with the rs240 water cooling kit I think. don't get me wrong h100 can keep up with my phanteks but to surpass it, you have to buy better (usually louder) fans. and I've heard of all of the failing pumps and fan controllers with the h100 when my air cooler is just some fans pushing air. thumb.gif

I actually had an h50 before this and I absolutely loved it. but this thing is such a beast.

I love air cooling, but I hate having such a huge chunk or metal sitting my case. I've been looking at 280mm rads, but my understanding is that 140mm fans have poor static pressure ratings compared to the 120mm fans. And I guess for simply cooling a 3570k a 120mm rad is fine...then the question becomes mounting location. I can mount it up top in a push pull, I can mount it on the drive cages in a pull configuration, but my wiring will be in the way, or I could go with a smaller 140mm Rad where my exhaust fan is.

Exactly. I love air cooling, it looks nice but when it comes to relying on ambient temps more and a huge piece of scrap metal in my case, I don't. Water is the way to go for me and I'm getting the Rasa RX240 + Black Ice 240 (Red) and keep everything else until I have money. I think a 240 + 240 is enough for a CPU only loop until I decide to add my GPU. Maybe. I think I like the idea of 480 rad for my CPU. smile.gif
