Just got my 6th fan in the case (none on the window), added a push to my Coolit Vantage, so it's <-- Case|Fan|Shroud|Radiator|Fan <--. Dropped a few degrees Celcius, need to ramp it up with some video converting to see how it does...

With CPU fan, I've 8 fans

4 x 120 + CPU 120
3 x 140

My GPU is 50C (full load 75-78C) - normally 40C but I've 2 monitors (one is TV)

MY CPU 29C (lowest) - 33C - 55C (highest - with prime 95 torture test) (overclocked 3400 -> 3995)

I told him if he wants more GPU power to go for a newer card.



I love a water cooled Scout What was the questions you kept asking? I know the one I kept asking my self was, how am I going to fit all of this inside this case?
The main question was where to put a radiator. This case isn't built for water cooling. I thought about modding front of case, side panel mount, top mount. 2 rads (1 top & one rear), but the measurements just didn't work--too tight and cramped. The deciding factor is that I didn't want to mutilate my case. I'm very happy with the rear mounted XSPC RX 360 and 3 yate loons (4 for $20 at Petras).

The other question was do I ever expect to add another VGA. The answer is no, I would replace the one I have with a better one.

How will I easily maintain the loop? Filling and draining were also in the plan.

PS The RASA kit is as good as a kit gets.

So far so good...I do like the green
I wonder if the green will hide the dust better than the black?

I agree it looks nice, but I wouldn't want it to hide the dust. Makes it too easy to overlook it. If the dust shows up you tend to clean it once you see it start to accumulate so that it doesn't build up and start affecting airflow.

i open my machines every 2 weeks to blow out air. with the dust filters, it should help a little. last 2 pieces just got first coat of paint....should be done painting tonight/tomorow morning. then just gonna wait for the wc parts to come in to put it all together.
