rest of pics

I think I'm going to replace my intake fan with an NB as my system temp is sitting at 34C under load(+11 ambient).
I like the look of that rig, clean and sterile like a hospital..
Like the Stalker game in waiting too, that is on my short list to get too also.

Andy, check into the swiftech rads. When I was shopping for my water setup, I read TONS before I bought anything. And generally, Swiftech rads perform great under low/mid cfm fans. So you won't need 3k RPM delta's to get some good temps. Also they are fairly easy on the budget to compared to some other rads.

As far as a all internal loop, that's pretty easy (IMO) as long as you don't mind some modding.
I had my 690 loop all internal. And then I also had an all internal loop with my stacker.
Even though the stacker was larger, the CM690 was MUCH easier to fit the loop in, thanks to the top 2x 140mm fan slots. I know in the newer advanced version you can fit a rad up top, and one towards the bottom also,if your using 2 HDD's or less. (Or get 3.5 to 5.25 converters.)
There are tons of cases out there though that let you fit either a dual or triple rad in them though, so really that shouldn't be to tough.

I'll update the OP here shortly. Still working on my coffee and waking up.

Cosmos S internal 3x120 rad requires absolutely no modding, same goes for a haf932.
both cases can be had sub 200 bucks shipped

and yeah im using swiftech rads exclusively, mcr320qpk is what i used in 5+ rigs, and the rad performs very well. together with an apogee xt and a mcw30 you would be on the same stage then me, the stuff is pricy no doubt about that, but its simply the best bang for the buck in performance.

fans i would suggest yate loon highspeeds for like 3.15 a piece.

I can answer that for ya, he uses Jabtech. They are great with shipping, and they have awesome customer service also.
Jab-tech

EDIT:
And high speed yate's are loud. I had some of those, and even some medium speeds that are still rather noisy. I'd go for these

yate loon high speeds are far from loud man, i bet you haven't heard slipstreams yet, they sound like a jet.

but your right on where i buy my supplies, jabtech ftw. jacob and john are just the best ppl i dealt with, never had an issue with them in the 12+ month i been dealing with em.

i use fan controllers to keep the noise down and overnight the fans run 100% for folding XD
post #847 of 2630
I see fans and cases are the subject and im in desperate need of both.
I'm still hitting 85c-86c highest core in LinX at 1.25v in bios 1.27 cpuz and 1.31v load. 200x20 (AS5)

I switched to this fan i had on another cooler and it dropped to 83c-84c

==>fan-shroud-rad-fan==>

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835106061


Need a good case and good fans but no funds for toys until my Dirtbike and jetski sells then im going nuts on water and am going to need alot of help

I might be able scrap enough cash for fans in the meantime.
How much would it cost to drop my temps to mid to high 70s with high end fans in PP?


As always thanks guys


I might need a template. I think the other volts look good but i might be wrong

body, if i was in your position right now, i would honestly just drop the oc if the temps are to high for your expectations at this moment.

grab a decent full tower case, and a cpu loop (optimally add a nb block) that has some higher end blocks and a triple rad.

thats just me though

heres a suggestion for a VERY good loop that has proven to be durable as i built 3 of these

Swiftech Apogee XT (cpu block)
Swiftech MCP 655 (pump)
Swiftech MCW 30 (nb block)
Swiftech MCR320QPK (rad)
Primochill Primoflex LRT 7/16" ID | 5/8" OD(tubing)
Yate Loon High Speed's 120mm (Fans)
Sunbeam Rheobus (Fan Controller)
Swiftech Micro Res V.2 (Reservoir)
Killcoil / PT Nuke (anti microbal solution)
some Y-cables for fans
some extensions if needed
fittings/barbs or compression fittings
some screws 6/32 x 1.25 inch (fan screws)

all this stuff* can be had from jab-tech for approx 350 bucks. and is worth the money for sure.

* screws can be picked up from the home depot or lowes for a couple bucks

perfect list man thanks.
I'm gonna go itemize everything and start learning

Apparently its tried and true when properly installed and those are the systems im looking to learn about. Scaired
Check this dude out. Giving he doesn't seem to bright. I dont want a loop like that! looks like its plastic
YouTube- Watercooling leak!


I left the cpu off overnight is that what artic silver means by thermal cycle?
Much better result today. But then again this run was the 1st i heated it up today

the guy in the video had some kinda finished system that looks like crap

get together with a couple of folks here on ocn, and build/quote/buy yourself a custom loop, its installed usually within sub 10 hrs and works great thereafter.

im saying 10 hrs, because it took me 12 for the first loop i built last year... and i take my sweet time to do stuff the right way, if i can xD
