Ok, where'd you get that chart? Seriously? Please don't say Hard forum because I'll know exactly who made it.

Edit: Hi K10!!!

Edit #2: If you want to get real detailed, um, really graphic, all you have to do is copy & paste the data straight from ATI & Nvidia.

The URL behind the Chart is...

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget....110iub994f.jpg

http://www.blogcdn.com/ .. that one comes up as a blank page, fake website front... the url follows that domain with a second domain...

www.engadget.com

That one is actually a legit site looks like, and so why its piggy-backing off a fake domain URL is a little odd... but fact remains...

That charts not from AMD. It is possible though, it may have originally come from AMD and that website copied it... but unless a URL can link it directly to AMD, no one will believe it came from there.

Well, I got it all done... Here's a few pics!

Back - Cable Management


Installation


Lighting


Assembled and complete!


Money Shot!


Reward for a hard days work


I have more pics of the whole project up at My Website if your interested

Overall Verdict:
The goal was not to break temps records with this setup, it was simply to improve upon the H70 temps I had when it was installed. (Low 80s @ 100% Load... Most games wouldsit around mid 70s.. and 35c Idle while clocked to 4ghz)

Well by adding a better quality rad, better fans, supposedly a better CPU block, and a stronger pump with reservoir.. it has been actually disappointing. I wouldn't say a failure in any case, but the temps are still comparable to the H70.

Idling is slightly higher then the h70 (sits around 37c), but at 100% Load with Prime95 for 45 min, it's slightly better then before (Hangs around 75ish).. That's a good 8 - 10 degree improvement.

During a 3 hour stint in Battlefield Bad company 2, I didn't actually SEE the temp, but HWMonitor reported the "highest temp" was 78c.. Which still is better then the H70, by a handful of degrees, BUT, not what I was hoping.

Of course, i could always throw on a second Rad, or even move to a better case setup where I could mount a 240x120 rad.. however, this is my LAN case, and 2 things i don't want are A) a bigger case, or B) an external rad to get damaged. So, for now, I think this will do.

All in all, was it worth the money? No... was it an improvement? Slightly.. Am I happy? Hell yeah! A full water cooling lop is still pretty cool, even if its nothing more then bragging rights to friends.

Thanks for following, anyone who did!

Thanks cjc75!! I used to know how to do that, do you open the source on the webpage your viewing or did you just know where it was from.

Then.... Come on, a chart from the people that promo Nintendo Gadgets to show the rankings of PC video cards from AMD??? Please do better than that! At least I saw my own numbering mistakes!

Edit: I can't get blogcdn.com to even come up, maybe because of my security certs or maybe just because. I can only trace it back to Time Warner, then AOL, then Engadgets, which is a Nintendo site. I know this much, it is not on the AMD site.

@ Telnets: Awesome man, very clean, looks better than most diners in my area! Just Awesome!

Now those three shots there are just gorgeous. I don't know why, red lighting just looks so much better then most others I've seen! Is your coolant also red, or clear? If its clear then I think that must be way... must people use some sort of colored coolant and yours looks clear and accents the red glow so much nicer!

I did it the simple and old fashioned way. I am on Firefox for my Browser and I right clicked on the picture to get a menu and selected "copy image location"... which copies the URL from which the image originated...

Then I opened notepad, and clicked Paste!

Hi coolant is clear, look at pic #2.
Then go to page 1 and look a my first Scout, people don't believe me that the water in the res was clear, not at all blue, perfectly clear! I don't like gunking up my loops.

@ Telnets again: Oh, nice picture of Buddy! He's hanging a little low isn't he? My tag along Dapper Dan (Danny) used to hang low but at age 7 he already had arthritis in his shoulder so he & me & my wife, all went on a diet. Danny lost half his wieght, I lost 140lbs, Mindy's lost 45 so far.

I'll put up Brutus and Danny if you like.


Oup, Telnets left, Engima left, K10 & PapaSmurf are still here!

Oh, I still do it the old way, }View Source{.

I used to run a decent coolant rig on my original Athlon64 4000 build, though had used a budget Thermaltake Big Water system... it had used a greenish fluid and yes it used to gunk up. Sometimes I would try to clean out the system to change the fluid and I would find all these little .. like.. rock things, tiny rock particles.. that seemed to have formed and built up. No matter how hard I tried to keep it cleaned out, more would build up, and eventually it just kinda ruined some of the parts, especially the reservoir tank.

I want back to air cooling after that and didn't give Liquid another thought until Corsair came out with the H50... and started pondering over modding mine to put in clear tubs instead of the covered black tubes it has now; and maybe add in a small reservoir... who knows, maybe someday!

Brisleep - Grass was high i think hehe.. Thanks for the comments!

And yes, its PC-Ice coolant.. I know i can just use distilled and some additives.. but it was thrown into the package for me so i figured why not use it

CJC - I was thinking the same thing about my system. Im not giving away my h70 just encase this one becomes too much of a maintenance headache. I mean i dont see how it can, unless the coolant gets dirty.. its sealed just like the h70, theres just more too it.. but if im finding that i have to take everything out and give it a wash down every 3 months or something, forget it.. Ill sell the loop somewhere and go back to my h70.

However, i was pondering this Rad


Since it has more ports then just the in/out, then you could literally fill it up, run the h70, shake the rad, and keep adding until its full then close it up for good and you wouldnt need a res then.

slap on some 1/4" tubing and barbs, and walla!
