Thanks, recieved my 7970 today it is HUGE! So decided to build it then realised my arctic freezer i30 wouldnt fit in the case
Read like 300 pages on this thread and decided on a corsair hydro and got the H55 for £40

Very nice!! That Arctic Freezer is a pretty beefy looking cooler....Out of curiosity, what thermal compound are you using for the H55?

At the minute the one pre-applied to the h55
My local store had no compound in stock, so was going to look online tomorrow for some... Why?

Sheer curiosity....Recently, I've been trying out some different ones to see which suits my needs the best. I just got my order of "Gelid Solutions GC Extreme" and "Prolimatech PK3" yesterday, so I'm currently seeing how the GC Extreme works out....

quick question about the h80i. is there anyway to tell which side is the return line without tearing it a part ? to mount this cooler in my node,i would have to mount it on its side.

The Dow Corning TIM that Corsair uses is as good as Shin Etsu TIM. There is no need to replace it unless you are removing the cooler.

Most likely, the return tube is the one on the right of the pump....That seems to be the norm....

Thats good to know
Quick question guys, not long got into "pc gaming" etc
Used speedfan to check temps etc, the cpu was at 56c and i had nothing running apart from speedfan (icloud in background) is this a normal temp or is that too hot? Anyway to make it cooler?
I have the corsair cpu cooler plugged into the cpu fan socket on motherboard and the fan on the cpu cooler plugged into the chassis fan socket, i assume this is correct?
I have the asrock z77e-itx, is there anything i can change in the bios etc to help make the cpu run cooler?
Sorry for all the questions guys
