I really don't want to tear the whole thing apart to change the fans around though.

The Stinger V8 has an S channel design where the coolant goes in the middle, through a pressure jet, and out the 2 side barbs. It has great flow, I just don't know what part of my loop is causing the problems.

Oh and for the stinger, you probably want the center horizontal channel to line up with the core right. C2D if the triangle is in the bottom right, the core is horizontal.

Thanks for the advice Martin! My radiator is at the front of my case, where the HDD/DVD bays usually would be and it is pulling air from inside my case. This is one of those things that I was unsure if it would make a big difference or not. I have a passive GeForce 6500 GFX card, which obviously doesn't make a lot of heat, so I doubt that is causing any trouble, and my PSU is not anywhere near the radiator. The first time I re-seated the block it looked like the paste wasn't spread too evenly, so I cleaned it all up and spread the AS5 over the IHS evenly before mounting which worked well for my old P4 and BT with my last computer. The Stinger is also mounted in such a way that the center channel is horizontal (in line with CPU) as well.

I will take it all apart again today and see what the AS5 looks like and change the orientation of the fans around as well. What configuration would you suggest? I have the 86CFM Panaflo's and the 77CFM Rosewill's. I would like to have the LED fans in the front, since it looks good with the LED's shining through the front, but if you think it would be better to have them somewhere else/not there at all, I am fine with that, performance is what I want more.

I'd leave the LED's in the front, they are probably 120x25mm aren't they? Then the 120x38mm Pana's in the back pulling since they will have the best air pressure....

Although it is debatable, iirc when appling thermal compound to a c2d it is better to have a very thin line down the center of the cpu going across both core's, than compound spread all over the area. Might make a difference to temps. Also make sure that the middle channel in ur waterblock is goin over each of the cores, also again might help.

I would put the rad in the very front and pull with the larger fans (not sure how the mix and match will affect flow though..?) You might experiement around a bit on the fan placement (pull with just the panaflos might be better than mixing the two fan types. Also if you are using Panaflos, they have a hug fan hub, you would probably get good gains by building a shroud to eliminate the dead spot in the center, even a distance as small as 1" will help, supposedly 1.5" of gap is about ideal. I would set up the fans behind and pull fresh air from in front of the case, I know it's not the best thing for the interior of your case, but if you're moving enough air, it shouldn't be bad at all ( you'll be suprised how much cool fresh air intake on the rad can make a difference). I have mine completely external and even then found that channeling the air to get away from my case made a couple of degrees difference just from hot air circulating around the case....never would have thought this unless I had the temperature probes.

I also believe in the thin line method. If your chip triangle is in the lower right corner you want a horizontal line, you can find this at artic silvers site.

When I run push/pull with 115CFM Panaflos and 130CFM Deltas, it proves more effective with the 130's on pull.

Yeah I've run 108 Sunon and 115 Pana's like that, the 115's in back and they do OK...I've always heard that when you run push-pull you increase the rear fans cfm by 50%....Kind of super-charges it I guess....

Awesome help guys, thanks a ton. I will reverse the airflow tomorrow and try the push/pull with the LED's in front and try with just the Pana's pulling in back. I also did not know about the special AS5 C2D application, but I found this picture, which sums it all up:

yep...that's the one ...just a nice thin line...note the triangle location though.
My 680i puts that triangle in the bottom right corner so it varies by motherboard.

Mine is also in the bottom right when mounted. I am starting to think that the middle channel might not line up with the core though. The block is longer horizontally (2" x 2.25") and I am unsure which direction the S channel is oriented. I guess it doesn't really matter since it is only going to fit in there one way.
