TEC is still good with dice cooling, I think so anyway because I can burn the chip in at a higher Mhz with less v-core using TEC. That way the chip is already kind of pre-burned with a lot higher clock then I can get on water.
Hey now once you get going we still need some temp and OC validation pic's, the funs not going to be over in just another week or two..
..Nope, your not getting off that easy...
yea I have used XSPC's REStop for the msp355 MULTIPLE times before and its and absolute Awesome top. I used three of these in my previous build and they save soo much space
and it doesnt take that long to bleed they work pretty good they havent given me a problem yet.
as for a pot not bought one yet really thinking of going that way but gotta figure out where I would be able to get everything and if I can do alot of it locally more planning this time...
and i might end up doing this when i head back to the states this summer.
yea gonna be fun Ocing this chip like crazy
well anyways as much as possible
and yea it is fun OCing and benching but I really cant wait just to get a powerful PC going again ive had only my mac running for the longest time so ive been missing out on LOADs of gaming hours

Lots of flipping it over etc.
exactly right and even when immobile they are not THAT big of a pain and ive bleeded all my WC systems with time not by moving the case around isusally just let it take care of itself

the alphacool ones also had a habit of breaking on ppl which obviously is pretty bad

this beast is going to look sweet once its finished.
yea soon enough it will be there personally cant wait to get this stuff on its way since it seems I have been building this computer for the LONGEST time
but soon enough I got all the lights on and setup with switches and everything
I decided to get rid of one of the 5.25" covers with switches on it and used a Lamptron switchs bay cover and works real nice. put each coor on a switch and put the lighting for the pedestal on separate switches
will have pics soon been busy with work would have had it done if it had not been for work
