Sexy Tron effect in your case ; )

@Kita....No worries! Happy to help! The blue suits it I think...it sets off the chrome gpu and cooler really well I think...cheers.gif

An odd choice, the 600t seems roomier, if anything, although the 650t has more business-like stylings, and a bit better clearance from memory for the psu intake. Any particular reason for the change?

@ Longroadtrip, really was very kind of you, I'm not normally a fan of case lighting, but that is, imho a job very well done!

Yep. I didn't want a bay reservoir because I'd lose a 120mm intake fan but still wanted a res with a pump top so I could use 1/2" compression fittings. The OEM 355 pump top only has 3/8" barbs and doesn't flow as well.

Wow, that's really odd.

I was using a stock Intel cooler on my Q8300 Core 2 Quad, and the highest temp I ever saw was 72c using Sandra to torture the CPU.
I installed an H70 and overclocked my CPU from 2.5 to 3.3GHz and my highest core temp now loading with Prime95 is 63c. It doesn't seem like much of a drop but it's after overclocking 800MHz. Perhaps you got a poor seat when you installed the water block?
Yeah..thought that was the problem too..even bought some more shin etsu (normally use prolimatech pk-1 or mx-4) I reseated it 6 times over the past week or so...played with different fan configurations, ambient temps, power, etc....everything was running per the book...on my OC to 4.4 I was 42C ambient and 64-67-68-66C under load... with a 22-24C ambient. With my Mega I'm at 30-31 Idle and 61-62-63-62C under full load.

Not sure what the problem is...it's too bad because I really like the idea of the H70. It's so much easier than a full WC loop..and so much less expensive too!!

Have you seen anything on the MCP35x? Looks like just a smaller, more expensive version to me. They seem to have a problem with the res cracking too...

The 35x is just a ddc pump with a different top. You'd be better off with the setup I have.

How is the noise level on the 355? Frozencpu warns that they are pretty loud....it still seems like the best value for the dollar though!
