Had a Dead Raptor X and a fried 7800GTX KO because of someone at FrozenCPU not tightening the fitting on the top most chipset water block so I am waiting for RMA's to roll in..

Waiting for a lapping kit to come in so I can lap my cpu water block as it is very uneven so much that my Cores have a 10 degree difference at idle and load.. And my temps are not that great yet...

Loop is: Res/Pump/Rad/CPU/GPU/Res

Idle Temps sit at around 17c Core #1 / 27c Core #2
Idle GPU temps 23c

Load Temps sit at Around 37c Core #1 / 47c Core #2
Load GPU temps 34c

Comments Welcome..

very cool, however, you should've went with 1/2" tubing for best performance.

Looks a lot nicer then the first one...I notice your WC the HDD....Thats really putting a lot of restriction in your loop that is not needed, and it also had a 90 degree elbow in it, that will really hurt your flow a lot....I'd just cut all that out it should help your temp's...At least get rid of the elbow..Are you reading temps in the bios? I don't really trust software monitoring much,,,Just try re-seating your CPU block, it may make a difference in your temps.....And you know I have to say it, go to 1/2" fittings with 7/16x5/8" Masterkleer tubing...Danger Den :: Tubing :: Tubing and Clamps :: 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Masterkleer General Purpose Clear PVC Tubing

That's really nice. I'm jealous. You have to many components, in my opinion, but hey, if it cools all of those, why not? How's PrimoChill ICE treating you - would you recommend it for another Water Cooler such as myself? I'm thinking of Water Cooling my DirectX 10 Rig, however, only my Processor.

Yeah I am not cooling the hard drive now at all that tube runs down and around to the inlet on the pump.. I have to use the Elbow so the tubing does not kink with the right angle it has to turn to miss the case side .. and yes I am going 1/2" soon just waiting to get the 8800gtx with DD water Block..

Thanks for the comments..
