Nope still no cpu temps, Open hardware monitor running on start-up and minimised to tray. The software needs work no?

I am hoping someone can give a approximate thickness of the pump casing.
I trying to figure away to make one of these work on my case.
I thought I would use these on top and just cut a small hole for the pump to pass through.

But I would like to get a approximate size for the hole.

How comparable is this to real water cooling? I have an XSPC 750 w/ RS240 Radiator and I'm having technical difficulties fitting it in with my new motherboard. I was thinking of getting one of these closed loops and the kraken x60 seemed to be the best one out of them all.

I would look into the Swiftech H220, better parts and easier to install since its a 240 RAD.

h220 won't fit my case. Radiator has to be between 25mm-27mm to fit in it currently.

Kraken x60 stock fans are pretty poor. I recommend if you do go with the x60 to get these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835132023

They are highly rated. I had them too, very high static pressure for 140mm fans which the pickings are slim anyway for good 140's.

Those seems to be 3pin fan though, is that good or bad?
post #209 of 607
Just depends on your setup. You will have to connect the 3 pin to either your board or another fan controller. Kraken fans are PWM

Anyone have an opinion between the Cougar CF-V14HP and the Noctua NF-A14 PWM?  I'm looking for PWM fans to replace the stock ones.  I've seen a ton of options, but it's hard to find a consensus choice.
