Well I've been keeping my eye open looking for reports of them leaking and faulting since they were released and not seen anything yet. and they do seem to give a decent cooling result compared to equally priced air coolers.

Benefits I'm interested in is that I wouldn't be hanging a heavy lump of metal off my mobo and it moves the heat away from the CPU then deals with it.

and I dont trust myself going with a proper job water cooling system.... my plumbing isnt up to scratch

I wanted to try it out for several reasons. Less fans, more room to move around in there since the GeminiII is so frickin' big, less weight hanging off the CPU area of the MB, lower CPU temps.

Right now the absolute lowest temp I have gotten on both cores was 33c, so if that Corsair unit drops it anymore than that I'd be happy. Honestly, if it keeps it at 33 or just a tad bit under I'd still be happy because I'd still be freeing up a lot of space and cutting down on wiring quite a bit.

same reasons pretty much.

According to the reviews I've read up its most efficient on the rear exhaust sucking the system air through it with a push/pull setup, might be different in a scout.

Deezaals setup having it in the front is quite possibly a winner though. I'm gonna have a play when I get it, see which works best.

I was thinking about having a fan on each side of it for push/pull, and mount it under my optical drive up front. This way it is pulling fresh cool air in, pushing it through the radiator towards the back of the computer where there's a top exhaust and rear exhaust.

This should, in theory, result in the lowest possible CPU temps and shouldn't raise ambient case temps too much since the radiator exhaust will be blowing towards my two case exhaust fans which will hopefully expel most of that hot air.

I will be using two CM R4 fans on that radiator if possible, I do believe it takes 120mm fans...hopefully. I am not very cool with the idea of any other brand/model/size fan in there because I LOVE those R4 fans.

Would the Thermaltake Bigwater 760i be on par with the Corsair H50?

I pulled my HAF apart, and I'm probably going to swop the CPU coolers around, stock for the time being in the HAF and 760i in the Scout

I've been messing around, trying to occupy my time

A decent WC setup is pricey, me no likey

Yea, I only played a few games so I'm sure a game like GTA 4 will get up a little higher but I definitely noticed a difference in the games I played.

One thing I did learn.. Cable management and big hands = not very easy.

33c at idle or load?

My cpu is currently Idling at 27c OC'd @3 ghz

Ran a 2 and a half hour prime 95 last night and temps stayed at 41c full load.
This is with the single stock fan mounted at the front of the case, I suspect lower temps can be had with 2 decent push/pull fans.

Edit: Mohunky, do you know anywhere that sells R4's here in the UK?
Been trying to find some but it's looking like they would need to be ordered from the states, yay for shipping taxes

He probably has it overclocked a good deal. I live in Arizona where it is hotter than a mofo and my cpu is idling at 37c and my system temp is 34-35c and I haven't even overclocked it that much, just unlocked 4th core and bumped it up to 3ghz
