I think you will be fine with your 3x 120mm rad but you can always add a 120/140/240 at the front, bottom or rear. (future upgrades)
Well, tell us whats your temp on them and we'll see smile.gif Anyway post more pictures, nice rig!

Nope. Loop order doesn't matter as long as your res is right before your pump. Water across the whole loop is the same temp +/- a few couple degrees. This is because water moves relatively quickly, so water out of your CPU is barely warmer than the water that went into it.

K so I said screw waiting on corsair and hooked up my old cables to the psu.

To start off with my temp downstairs is like 18-20c so maybe 18-22c upstairs.

Ran Prime95 using in-place large FFT's for about 20 min's
Idle temps:
23c / 31c / 30c / 27c

CPU auto clock:
Freq: 3920.49MHz (100.53 x 39.0)
VID: 1.2810v
load temps:
51c / 61c / 59c / 56c

Only thing I did in the bios was set up boot order, installed windows and some drivers, so...Dose newer thermal paste still need time to "setup", using gelid stuff that came w/ my ekwb, and what do those temps look like?

on a side note my 680 is sitting at 27c during the prime95 run, so that gives ya some kind of idea what temp the loop is running at.
___________

So thought i'd put some more numbers up since i turned off the auto.

Speed: 3518.34
Volts: 0.992
Idle T: 22/31/30/26
Load T: 37/48/45/43

Ok so got it stable @ 4.8Ghz, 1.424v
Idle temps: 31/38/38/36
Load temps: 85/97/94/89

Think that's all i can get with my basic oc skills, and don't wanna venture into 100c+ temps.

That decent on a water loop, or should i think about adding another rad?

Those load temps are pretty high for everyday use, you're probably within spec so long as it's under 100 but that's way too close for comfort IMO. I personally try to stay below 70 as my top temp.

Yeah was just talking to someone about that, think i'm going to down clock it to 4.6 @ 1.264v, load temps 65/76/72/69
