Sure Burn...The next time I tear it down I will, might be a while....

EDIT: I have in-line temp sensors one right before the rad and one right after so I can get a pretty good idea of the temp drops, or lack of...

You got it...I need to hook up my temp sensors and re-lays and stuff then I'll be glad to try it...

EDIT: And Joe I will try your theory out to if you haven't had a chance to try it...All I need to do is reverse the inlet and outlet tubes.....

Thanks ira-k ... that'd be great !

I'm still in the process of building my rad enclosure, so it may be a bit.

Can you recommend a good in-line temp sensor I could integrate into my loop ? Before and after the rads the best place for that then ?

Yeah I'll link to the one's I used and I will link to the compu-nurses I hooked them up to...The probes come with a 2 pin connector I just cut off the flat probe off the compu-nurse and added a 3-pin male molex with just 2 wires on it of course... ..None of this stuff is real accurate but it will give you a pretty good idea of temp's...

I put one right before the rad and the other one I put closer to my case...I wanted to get it closer to the CPU...I used some 1/2" T's and reamed them out a little then seal-threaded these probes in them with some clear silicone...I put the tips right down in the flow a little to try and get accurate temp's...Then I put some heat-shrink on it and shrunk it....They have held up fine so far....

I will leave you a pic link it is to the left of my pressure gauge in the...That is an old pic...
