Alright guys, well today I added some blue dye to the loop, looks nice ( i'm expecting plastisizer to build up in the loops ) It appears I didn't clean the loop out as well as I thought I had, as green dye from the last set up has gave the loop a slight green hue... not sure how I feel about that, but may add more dye to try to make the blue a bit blue'er
and added my fan kill switch i'm naming "Stealth Mode" Basically, with the switch on, all the fans are spinning at their normal speed. when the switch is off, only the two GT fans are going, which if you never have seen and heard a Gentle Typhoon, they are one of the best fans out there as far as performance and speed. Also, all the LED's are shut off as well, its pretty neat.
With the system on, my temps idle around 32'c which is where I expected. with the system in "stealth mode" Idle temp is roughly the same, and Prime 95 temps are basically the same as well, hovering around the 60'c area ( Slight OC at 4.5ghz for now )
Obviously during gaming, the temp difference will be more drastic with the the stealth mode on, but will still keep the system plenty cool.
I have a giant bubble in the water loop that I cant seem to shake out, so I may have to take the res/pump out to try to get the bubble out, but since its a test bench, it wont be that hard
and ofc, pics.
