I just got the corsair h100i, don't want to throw it away already lol.

Obviously, two fullcover block for lightning like "Aquacomputer aquagraFX" or "EK-FC680 GTX Lightning - Acetal+Nickel", they both look nice.
A reservoir+pump, if it can fit in the 5.25 bay I have left it would be good,
a rad 240mm or 280mm, 30mm tick (or moar) that can fit in the front of the fractal R4 if I move the hdd bay a little on the back, there should be enough space under the 2nd lightning,
then some tubing and fittings for the whole thing, right?

Any products suggestion, I'm in France so if you got some European shop in mind. wink.gif

BTW, the new 3Dmark will be available next monday wheee.gif

Temps are real nice, both cards mem/vrm almost identical, second cards core ~2*C hotter but its running slightly more voltage too. ~42-44*C core. 44*C mem, 50*C VRM after extended gaming.

The mem or mem controller on my new card was sensitive to heat, but I've now got both cards at +900 MHz (3911 MHz / 7822 MHz effective) running stable in games. 250 GB/s bandwidth, don't think they'll be bandwidth starved with that smile.gif

There are no 1 5.25 bay pump/reservoir combo. All of them take 2 5.25 bays.
