Me, I like the 655's, just because i have 2 and they work like a charm for me, i've been trying to get a second hand ddc with petra's just to try it out, but those things sell so fast lol.

What CPU block and GPU block you planning to use?
Rad?

I already have a apogee installed for the cpu and once I get a 8800GTX or GTS i want to use a MCW60. Thats why I am thinking I need to get this radiator. The guy said it weighs 3.4 pounds.

Currently my loop consists of two 10w ddc-1 with petras tops, a apogee,
MCRES-MICRO, and the stock radiator that comes in the Armor LCS. I am thinking about upgrading to this radiator because it is narrow enough to fit in the bracket "125mm". What do you think about the rad?

I also plan on adding a Swiftech mcw60 into the loop to cool an 8800GTX. http://www.overclock.net/images/icons/icon7.gif

So whats the verdict?

thanks in advance

Not a whole lot of difference. According to the graph With 3/8in tubing about 1/2LPM less and about 1ft higher head. The temps where not much different either. Thanks

Now the decision on the new radiator??????

If it's not a big hassle, 1/2 is nice. In my experience your loop in not as bad as the weakest link.

I did some replumbing in my house. I’ve got great pressure everywhere with3/4 copper pipe. I “Tâ€â€™d of with a 1/2", 12' line to a new laundry room, the drop of in pressure is profound. By the same token a short 18â€, 3/8†strech off the ¾†line to my sink makes no difference at all.

So my take, the more fat stuff the better, even if there is some more restrictive components in your loop. That said though, the actual change in temps (the end game) will probably be negligible.

Id like it to be quiet. The fans on my RAD now are 17dBA and they push 54cfm's. I don't really want to spend more that $60 on a new radiator.
Wonder what would happen if i put a 120mm rad on the back sucking air in?

Then what about this one at performance-pcs? It would fit.

Get a Black Ice Pro then, thin, so good for low cmf fans and no hard on the wallet at all:

Or add just a little more cash and you get the GT(S)tealth,
for low noise fans as well, hence the name stealth

Go with Hw Labs rads ot Thermochill rads, those are 2 companies you know you can count on for some good performance rads.

hmmm.... not sure if they would fit. They might require the use of a dremel in order for them to fit. The one that is in there now is 120mm wide.

what about the Magicool radiator? I cant find much on it.
