I am a little dissapointed that my idle temperatures havent dropped still running at 35C idle. I havent tried a full load test yet. Ill see in a couple of days if the temps drop after the TIM breaks in some.

For some reason I cant lower the rpm of the Scythe.. I tried using speedfan and the asus pc probe II..

But the mod is complete
I did a lot of research on the question of fans and given my requirement to get the most for the least amount of noise I settled on 2 S-Flex 1600 rpm fans. Even though they're only 25mm thick, they beat out the Ultra Kaze 3000 rpm fan when it was dialed down to a tolerable noise level (i.e. 7 volts) and did it while being even quieter. here is the link FYI: http://www.****************/reviews/...e_120mm_fans/5

Ive seen a lot of leak test photos but I dont recall it... can you find a pic or post?

Here are some pics





This last one also has the copper block removed, but the top area does not contain liquid.

Darn UPS tracking says I will try this on friday

Come to think about it, that could be a good factor to why these things idle higher than thier load temps might suggest. Will report back end of week with plenty of pics and temps as I test out several things.

I look forward to the pics of your mod. I will try the spot cooler on the pump head when I get home tonight and see if I can replicate your findings.

Interesting, I wonder if a spot cooler on this exposed pump would make a significant enough difference to compensate for the reduced aesthetics. If it does, perhaps Corsair would consider making the lower pump housing out of aluminum and add some low profile cooling fins.

The pump is warm to the touch under norm operating conditions (before spotcool).

So long story short, unplug the spot and CPU jumps 4-5C in under 2 minutes! Plug it back in, temps drop back down after a few. Got me thinkin, has anyone ever run the pump coverless? I mean, sure we can play with fans (workin on it) and we can mod the lines and res (waitin for UPS) to drop a few C, how about bringin the pump temp down running topless or direct airflow or sumthin?
It's interesting that you should mention this, I noticed today when replacing my fans that the pump is very hot actually. I'm forced to modify my opinion and say that having the spotcool directed at the pump might make a difference, because if the cover is that hot to the touch, then presumably the water is being heated that much too. The power draw from the pump is something like 5W though, so I think most of that heat I'm feeling is directly from the CPU (140W). Interesting results nonetheless. Added.

Yes, I think in writing what I just wrote I can see why it's hot. And I suppose that because it is so hot it is clearly conducting heat to the air, if you can convect that air away from it then there should be some healthy effects.

I'm currently idling at 30c, this seems a little high. My other question was whether or not it's okay to have to radiator upside down, with the pipes on the top, or if this will put strain on the pump.
Welcome and added. The best method to determine if push or pull is best is trial and error. Generally I would say keep the H50 in exhaust, but if you have good case exhaust then you could switch this around.
