Ya I have seen folks using shrouds on there Rads, read it focuses the air through the rad better, I'm guessing I shiuld only need 1 shroud cause 1 of the fans is pulling the air through the Rad while the other one that would need the shroud is pushing the air through the rad, is that right?
Well the 2nd shroud on the pull fan certainly isn't a waste of time for me but I care about each and every 1c I can drop. The shroud is increasing the distance of the fan motor from the grill of the radiator and therefore it minimizes or eliminates altogether(if distanced correctly - 30mm-38mm is a good width to shoot for with a shroud on these corsairs) the "dead spot" where the fan motor is located so it would be of some benefit to have both sides of the rad shrouded but the gain will be very minimal. BTW forgot to say you only lose the top spot if you're placing an optical drive there(and I was still able to do that with an Excalibur fan mounted there because of their curved shape), if you're placing a bay bus or fan controller there you shouldn't have a problem.

Yeah i'll let you know, heading to the garage to do some painting on my old antec900/brother-in-law's NEW antec =P i'll try it this evening.

EK crafts a better looking block imo. performance wise, I have yet to find a review for each or a comparison. Plus, the EK is slightly less expensive.

Hello first time poster. I was wondering what are normal water-cooled north bridge temps? Right now under load it gets to 60c at stock volts and the CPU is @ 4.03ghz.

While I'm asking questions how can I improve memory scores on this? Max I had by Sandra is 19.4gb/s.

which waterblock are you running? thats really high, even for the stock cooler. fill out your specs and gives a bit more detail. my nb never goes beyond 40c @ load and Im using the ek block.
post #4248 of 13131
Yes I have the ek block as well. Guess I need to check the contact to the block. Southbridge runs at low 40c at load.

i had the problem where my block was packed w/ two additional standoffs that were smaller. Per Eddy from EK, the six standoffs you need for the main block are 2.5mm, the back vrm plate can use those or I have been told by other owners you can use the smaller ones for the back plate. take it apart and check the height of the standoffs.
