Thing with shrouds is that you need a decent thickness for it to be worthwhile and at least in my case, I don't want the rad fan protruding too far into the case.

Thank you This was the biggest mod I've ever done, now I'm more courageous and less hesitant about doing more stuff. This club was a great morale boost. Thanks everyone!

I feel the same about the fans going too far into the case.

Link for the fans please?

Nice job, E ... you are tempting me to pull the trigger on the Noctuas and paint them a sort of black / grey combo ala EVGA. Krylon paint for plastic from Home Depot I hear works well, right? Hmmm ...
Yea.. but the Camo paint from Krylon have the Fusion formula too. Anything that has the word fusion on the can will work great on plastics.

Like I told Path a few pages back, it all depends, you don't need a push pull if you use on of General E's Delta fans, oh one of these pups: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...d&Order=PRICED
Heh heh, 8000 rpm and 175cfm, that'll cool anything if you can stand the noise. It also depends on the mobo but with yours I'm pretty sure it'll hit the pump with 2 fans. There are other ways though, you can get some long screws with nuts and washers, put one outside the case and one in, you'd have to put something in the gap though. If I had to choose I'd say pull, rad>fan>case.
You know though the most efficient radiator cooling method is with shrouds. Like this baby: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/92...tl=g30c429s163
You don't have to buy one though, even putting a cardboad box around the fan will improve cooling. If it is going to be on the roof though I'd definitly have the back fan blowing in, not out, naw, you'd be messing up the airflow, too much positive pressure, then I think a push would be best, make sure you're cooling off the edges of the rad, not just the fins. Definitely need a stronger fan though.

No, you're logo & pump aren't upside down. Mindy's is: Oh, forgot, those pics are on my computer.

Actually just came on to see if anyone answered my jumper question wire, no one did so I googled it, it's right here on OCN: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/96712-...upply-psu.html Hmm, maybe I'll make up a wire.

Gotta go fill my loop and burp it, wish me luck, cross your fingers, say a prayer or whatever your beliefs allow.

Hey check it out, they actually sell this thing: http://www.frozencpu.com/psu-173.html
Just one thing on those Delta and Panaflo fans. Plug those into the motherboard as the servers do and it will only put out the cfm that it needs for the job at hand at the time. That way you dont have that thing screaming at you from the back on the case. 66 dba is pretty irritating.

Okay. I need some advice here, because it has been ages since I have upgraded CPU/RAM...

I am planning to do a CPU/MB/RAM upgrade in the near future. Tonight I am working on getting all of my ducks in a row. I have narrowed my selection of CPU and Motherboard, but am still open to suggestions.

What I really need help with is the RAM. First of all (please excuse the lack of knowledge here), as long as the RAM is a 240-Pin, will it be compatible with the following motherboard?

Link to MOTHERBOARD I have chosen (so far). Again, I am open to suggestions as well.

Link to PROCESSOR I have chosen. I would prefer to buy this OEM rather then retail, to save some money, but I don't see any available.

Also, I am a bit concerned about the placement of the heat sinks on the motherboard for with the Corsair H50. Any thoughts?
