To be honest, for such an expensive PSU I'm surprised how quickly it went. I've read some fantastic reviews about the EVGA G2 series and if it doesn't work out I'll go with one of the Antec Pro ones and be happy.
I'm going to keep trying to get the air out of my loop as it has proved pretty tough, but having a PSU that can run with the normal jumping method, unlike the corsair digital series, I should be able to leave the pump running for a few days to help shift some air.
I'm probably going to remove the CLU on the CPU and re-apply as I think that applying it to the CPU as well as the waterblock is too much. I'll get round to overclocking at somepoint, but need to get the loop and PSU to an acceptable standard before I start throwing volts at it. I'm going to stay under 1.4 Vcore and see what I can achieve as well as overclocking the uncore (cache) speed and the RAM.
