okay, I did some cable management and the air flow seems better now!
system is down from 55c to 47c IDLE.
Still HIGH but I don't know what I can do about it.


BTW I need people with real experiences with the kandalf LCS watercooling kit to base my opinion on

Thanks for the pic's......Looks good...Just really watch the CPU block on it, they are well known for cracking out, that and the pumps die a lot...

You might want to try some re-mounts, I do at least 4 or 5 and then work it back down to the lowest temp I could get...That way I have a good idea of what its capable of...

If you can shake your rad and make sure theres not a lot of air in it...Tilt you case around a little and see if there is any air in your blocks, really rock it around...

Okay, How much for a good pump that WILL fit with those tubing and would support a new T-line to the Northbridge as well ?

My NorthBridge isn't hooked with WC yet btw.
thanks for the reply Ira-k

I'd just get a D-5 vario..D-5..And run it on the #2 or 3 setting, that way you wont blow the seals out of your block...You would need a couple of 1/2"-whatever that tubing is reducers...Get a foot or so of 1/2" tubing for the pump side...

Or if $$$ is tight, one of these would be OK, I don't think they would put to much pressure on your TT loop..dB-1 Compact 12v Pump..

Kits like that are hard to upgrade, it ends up costing more in the long run, thats one reason we hate to see new guys get them... Really watch that CPU block for cracks, they are well known for cracking out and leaking...

I'd get the D-5 to start, then a rad without aluminum in it, like a GTX, then a good CPU block like a Stinger or Fuzion...

And let me guess, if it breaks, there aren't responsible for any loss incurred by their defective product eh? And about cracks, are they badly manufactured or They deteriorate with time?

hmm... pump and CPU block to change then?
+ rad. SO basically I keep the tubes

Shouldn't I change the CPU block first since it's so risky?

edit : that wasn't really nice of you >_<
I had to try something out of the box before trying custom stuff.
Do you get in modded cars before driving a stock one?

ya but this isnt a car. its a computer so no comparison at all. the pre built stuff is junk. they break and leak alot and just are not as good as a custom built setup

Yeah there is, I've never used it but a lot of the Canadian guys here do.Be sure to get the vario model and not the "B" model, the "B" has no rheo on it and you couldn't turn it down, it has less flow then a vario to...The 655 Swiftech vario is the same as the D-5, just a re-brand..NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store ...

Sorry, but have to agree with most everyone here. Definitely watch the block. They are prone to cracking but even so... with the high temp u r running, the plastic can crack on it's own from the heat.

The d5 vario is a great pump, relatively inexpensive, and readily available.

Make sure to do what Ira said and make sure you don't have any air trapped in the rad. You should be getting way lower temps than 47. Try a remount of the block too. It might seat better. Be careful with leaks and hopefully you can get your temps down and extend that processor life
