Or perhaps getting a new CPU that will operate 4.0Ghz at lower Vcore? thinking.gif

Huzzah! Also, I reckon the WC route would be a good idea thumb.gif

Fateful, you're the only person I know for certain that has any experience with Cougar fans. I'm taking all my case fans apart, to custom paint them to go with my colour scheme. Is there any way to take apart my Cougar 140mm fans?

I'm pretty sure they're the Vortex series fans. Removed the sticker on the back but there's nothing but solid plastic underneath frown.gif

I never actually tried to take one apart cause the Cougar fans I messed with went in a customers build, however the fan should be held on by magnets. Try pulling the fan off the motor this way as most High performance fans are held together in this fashion. Make sure though that the force applied is steady as we don't want to break anything. tongue.gif

Sorry for the double post but for some reason it wouldn't let me update/edit my last post.
I have begun searching for various universal Mosfet and Northbridge WC blocks and have located the parts I'm looking for but I have not been able to decide on what kind of Radiator I want for the loop so I need your help/opinions.

IMO, a single 120mm Rad would cool the mosfet and Northbridge effectively but I'm not sure.

Radiators:
Single 120mm: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14397/ex-rad-322/EK_CoolStream_120_XT_Series_Liquid_Cooling_Radiator_EK-CoolStream_RAD_XT_120.html?tl=g30c95s159#blank

Dual 140mm: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9013/ex-rad-154/Black_Ice_GT_Stealth_280_Radiator_-_Black.html?tl=g30c95s930

Chipset/VRM WC Blocks:

VRM: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8289/koo-153/Koolance_MVR-100_Motherboard_Voltage_Regulator_Block_No_Fittings.html?tl=g30c293s728#blank

Northbridge: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7254/ex-blc-456/Koolance_CHC-125_MB_Angled_Liquid_Cooling_Chipset_Block_No_Fittings.html?tl=g30c89s147

Ahh I see, thanking you very much! I'll get on it now biggrin.gif I already have my 4 120mm fans painted, but they're gonna need a few more coats.

Heard earlier today in the BOC that edits are currently not working. Not sure if it's a lnog running problem or if its new, but that could be the cause tongue.gif
