Completed WaterCooling Project *56K Warning*

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So today I got my Evga 8800GTX back from RMA. I threw it in to make sure everything worked stock. The PC booted up good to go.

So what else arrived today??? My Swifty MCW60 and D-Tek Uni-Block.

When I made my original order from sidewindercomputers.com they jacked up and sent me 4 1/2" DD high flow barbs. I should have received 6, but I was sent 2 3/8" DD high flow barbs. I didn't think this would have as much of an impact as it turned out to.

After adding a hot GPU into the loop and changing out the barbs on my radiator my CPU load dropped 3c! I was loading at 50c and now I'm holding strong at 47c.

My GPU temp has gone from a toasty 80c load to 40c load and 30c idle!

All in all a good day.

Here's how it turned out:





















Let me know what you think!

Edit: Made the pics smaller. If you want a bigger picture head to my gallery.

How big is the Uni-sink in comparison to stock cooler and what temps are you getting on that?

The rear part is just about as tall, maybe slightly taller, as the stock cooler. I know many people wont like that for SLI. I'm not worried about SLI I just wanted the best passive cooling I could get. I'm not into those tiny ram sinks.

I'm not sure about the VRM or Memory temps but I listed my core temps above.
