i was running on that h50 in my sig... it gave stellar temps.. but i found an mcp655 for a killer deal so finally took the plunge.

i wasn't sure it was really worth it being that its on par with a higher end air cooler but still has a conductive fluid running around next to my components. but i saw that it only has one failure (on ocn at least) and corsair got that guy new parts and i found it cheap so i said screw it.

but with that review i feel a bit more comfortable with my buy.

i should have had an update by now on paint or something but i got hit HARD with the flu when i got back from my girls school... so im sorry if im boring you all


im still planing on going full water at some point, but money is kinda a problem and i still have the rest of my components to buy.

so as some of you remember i left the outer circle in the front bezel because i was hoping the fan would look decent behind it.

it looked like crap.

so i cut it out


and just to experiment i tried cutting a rad slot in the bottom of the cooling duct. this is just a temporary thing because im going to be ordering a fatter and shorter rad some time this week (THIS ONE) because the H50 rad has those caps on the top that make it not fit quite as well as i was hoping

and here it is with the rad in it


i also swaped out one of my R-4s for the stock fan for the H 50 in the cooling duct as you can see in the last picture.

sorry i couldn't have a better update for the week but like i said. i was layed up for a few days and im still not 100% so working on side projects is NOT a priority... im sure you guys know what its like.

THIS WEEK!
im planing on ordering a rad and a sleaving kit this week to give myself something to do wile i wait for the 850fx chip set to drop at the end of the month

THIS ONE!
and THIS!
and maby some of this?

do i want all black or black and green?


as always comments, suggestions, and questions are welcome!

Looks great bro! I would go with all black, at least that way if you want to reuse anything in another build (that does not have green in it) it won't stick out like a sore thumb.

How much green do you plan on putting on the case?
'Cus if it isn't a whole lot, I'd say get some of the green

What good is the name 'Reactor' if you don't have any GREEN in it mate!
Can't wait to see what else happens here.

all the fans are green and when i swap out the tubing on the H50 and do all that water stuff im thinking about the water will be green and i MIGHT (if i can justify the expense) have some green sleeves on some of the wires (only a few though like 4 or 5 on the 24 pin ATX one. just enough to brake up the black) and every one on my end is telling me that i should scrap the paint idea..... but idk. ill have to think about this one
