If you only run the cpu in the loop can run just a t-line but might as well get the resovoir if upgrading later all looks good and never too much pump and the bigger the radiator the better if it flows enough.

Thats a D-TeK Fuzion block, it has been proven to be the best out there I believe.

Thanks for the tip on the tubing!

All I need now is for ira-K to post...

Radiator:Black Ice Xtreme 2 High Peformance Radiator $59.00

Pump: Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12 VDC Pump $79.95

Tubes: PrimoFlex Tubing 1/2 ID x 3/4 OD - Clear $2.25

Fluid: Cooler Master Thermal Conductivity Fluid $10.95

Radbox:
Swiftech MCB-120â„¢ "Radbox" $19.95

Reservoir:
Tanky - Single 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir - UV Blue $29.95

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Questions:

1] Is the radiator worth it over the other Black Ice 2?
2] Is the pump too much for a single loop system?
3] Hows the tubing and fluid?
4] Reservoir ok?
5] Any way to cut costs?

Sorry for all the noob questions, this is my first "true" WC setup.
1- The BIX is a good rad I really like them...You need to use 100+cfm fans on them..Look at Sidewinders they may be cheaper there...

These are the fans I used on mine they worked great...

2-That is fine for a single block loop...Swifty cam out with a new one thats a
little cheaper it doesn't have a rheo on it and runs full blast all the time..
Everyone leaves them on the 5 or highest setting anyway it will save a
couple of bux.....

transfer of the coolant...

Looks like you're well taken care of.

Another tip worth a couple of degrees C is to lap the processor. My E6600 was really rough and uneven. I've been lapping a little bit at a time and just finished this afternoon..

LOL, thanks!

Actually the lapping was really easy and went fast once I actually bought some good 600 grit wet sandpaper. Taped a full sheet down on some good flat white pressboard and went to town. Then I just used a little mothers polish on paper towel to polish it off. You can be done with it in about 30 minutes.

Just crank them volts, you have plenty of headroom..

So you would suggest a 2 x 120mm radiator for just a CPU loop? How much worse would a single fan rad do?

What is your exact ratio for your liquid?

Thanks a bunch ira.

Yeah I would go with a 240 rad your temp's wont spike so much....

OK for every 40 ounces of distlled water I add one ounce of glycerin..

Then one 4 ounce bottle of the Pentosin....

Then 2 drops of the PT Nuke biocide.....
