That's really something great. Whenever I saw a bong I thought that should be done smaller and more closed, just like your build. Now someone needs to find a way to deal with the exhausted air and its perfect biggrin.gif

But a little question:
I see temps of the CPU, GPU, and I think the temps around the input and output of your fans. But what's your water temp at input/output? Is it sub-ambient or not?

I've been very busy with school recently, but I've managed to make so improvements/modifications/tests over the last couple weeks on Arctic Rain. I still firmly believe it's an awesome case, as its lived up to my expectations very well, so thanks for referring people here thumb.gif

Recently I've been cleaning out the water cooling system, and trying to diagnose a lot of issues with the aquaero system. I'm pretty sure I'm not using the AE5 the way it was originally intended. I've removed the stainless steel wool so that way I can try the top cooler with just the water falling down. So far, it's showing some improvements over the stainless steel wool, temps seem to be running lower. The idle water temp measured at the GPU's output is typically around 24 - 26c and under full load it usually holds a temp of about 32c.

I've been experimenting without the use of the 360 radiator as well. I'm getting faster response in the water temperatures to increases in system loads, kinda like using a lighter flywheel on a car if you know what I mean. I'll post up some pictures of what it's looking like now tonight. I'll also throw up a couple screenshots comparing the performance of the computer with different cooling setups.

It's a great case and very easy to mod. I'm sure you'll love it. And thanks!

I forgot to get pics up last night of it's current status. I need to fix some of the sensor wiring (messed it up when I put the back panel on) when I get back to my apartment after my circuit theory labs, and once thats all good, I'll get some new pics.

I ran a full load stress test yesterday afternoon, and I got max temp on the GPU of 38c and a max temp on the CPU of 56c running at 4.683GHz. Water temp output on the GPU (The hottest point in the cooling system) maxed out after about 3 hours of full load at 25c biggrin.gif The average heat being removed is about 86W and about 140W on the GPU, which coincides with measurements read in real temp.
