Yeah that will help...I like the 7/16x5/8" Masterkleer on 1/2" barbs...Its still compact and easy to route around in your case and will still flow about as well as full 1/2"....


...7/16"x5/8" Masterkleer

I have the TT Big water in a box in my garage. The pump started a leak so I bought a Zalman. IMO if I were you I'd change out the pump.

Thank you for your advise ira-k, I will keep that tubing size in mind when I re-build my water cooler.

CL3P20: Good idea for keeping the TT system for a chipset cooler, I have a 680i chipset that is a mini-pyre right now.

I was thinking about using a via aqua 1300 pump, with the Apogee GT I am buying from DuckieHo, and mounting a swiftech 2x120mm rad on a rad box outside my case where I had previously had the TT radiator mounted. Nice cheap, and better than my TT BW SE!

Sounds like a solid upgrade...you should be very happy with your decrease in temps and system expandability.

*Nvidia chipsets are known for running hot. Temps usually limit chipset stability when NB speeds start climbing. Keeping your NB around 38c should gain you some additional FSB, and keep your CPU cooler as well.
