Check out my setup!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I finally completed assembling my watercooling setup at about 10 last night, (I got this kit for Christmas). And I was testing on and off till about 3, and here it is!

Just kind of an overall view of my setup

This shows my kinda wacky radiator setup

My waterblock, and some more tubing

(If I uploaded the images wrong or something, please let me know, this is my first time posting pictures here.....)


My setup is as follows:
Swiftech GTZ waterblock
2x Swiftech double 120mm radiators
Swiftech MCRES-MICRO rev2 reservoir
Laing D4 pump
Lots of 7/16" ID Masterkleer Tubing




I am really happy with this setup; it almost cut my temps in half over a Zalman CNPS 9700NT.

@3.2ghz, my CPU used to idle in the high 40's, and sometimes got up to 70C at 100% load.

Now, at the same clockspeeds, It idles at 22C, and I have yet to see it get over 40C at 100% load.

I am now officially in love with water cooling

Well, it wasn't completely a Christmas present (I had to pay for some of it, was a "bit" over our Christmas budget...) but still, BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! haha.

And I don't see why 2x double rads shouldn't perform about the same as 1x quad, they have they same total amount of surface area to dissipate the heat.

temp wise i think they would perform the same, but the 2x doubles might have more restriction
