The link is a link to my build log and I'm quoting my self.

back in the day i had the Volcano 9 I had it running at full speed and it was still not good enough, but on the stock heat sink that came with Phenom chip I have the same fan on it that I had on the Volcano 9 and I have it turned down and its quiet I have never had a computer this quiet before plus the temps are better now than anything have had before I have never seen idle temps of 25c or load of 44c, that was what I was trying to do with the water loop but failed.
If my new water loop can't keep up I may go back to air cooling.

With knowing that my water loop is a fail I need some encouragement that I'm not wasting my time in trying again, so could some people post idle and load temps so that I can see it not a wast of time.

Dual loop on a 360 rad for a single 7970 ? Sorry to be a critic but water cooling is all about noise, looks, and cooling. You could easily cool a 2700k and a 7970(coolest high end reference card out right now) with a high end 240 rad and push pull and still get good temps even with massive overclock 1155 is not a very hot cpu either. if you were running a 1366 or 2011 the 360 rad is justifiable but still not dual loop. Not that your rig is bad just overkill and thats my 2cents.gif

I already had the parts and used them. Only using two fans on the triple rad. In your scenario, I would be using the same amount of fans for my cooling and it would most likely be noisier due to resitance. Noise isn't an issue for me and things keep quite cool. I'm satisfied with it, but I don't mind critics. smile.gif I will actually be replacing the triple Koolance with a dual 120 in the near future. It's also on dual loops. Also, who's not to say that I'll be using bigger and hotter hardware in the future anyways.

7970 + 2700K on a 240? Not gonna have good temps at all.

Good points^^ just stating my opinion on how I would do it. As for noise use a rad with a lower fin density and lower rpm fans good thermals and acoustic but if you ever wanted to throw in a few more 7970's that would be friggin sweet thumb.gif Also most water cooling componets last a long time so your rig is future proofed cooling wise and I love the 500r

Much better than a high end air cooler on the cpu and a reference cooler on the gpu.

thinking.gif Maybe, and I mean a strong maybe. Definitely wouldn't justify the price though.

ehh cooling improvement of 2-5C is worth it PLUS the aesthetic and noise aspect.

No maybes. A high end AC unit probably wouldn't come within 5c of the temps he can get with that setup. Depending on ambient temp of course. wink.gif

And you do know that this is OCN, home of Overkill right? The price is justified just cause he can. biggrin.gif
