What I'll do is a leak test without the fans for a number of hours, then add the fans on and continue the test.

Now that I'm WC, my temperatures are similar to what I was getting with a Prolimatech MegaShadow with two Panaflo FBA12G12U1BX in push/pull at about 2000rpm. Right now I'm at 1200rpm with the kit fans and ambient +12C (or 34C) atm.
Idle's don't matter, it's load's that count. Those were pretty damned good delta's for air :S

Hai im ordering my kit in about a week, i live in GB so i was gonna order from specialtech.co.uk. The jit is 147 pound on there but its out of stock so i looked at jabtech and used the discount code and it comes to 188 dollars wich works out o be roughly 122 pounds do u think it is worth the hastle and will there be any hidden charges??

Doubt there will be hidden charges. Just find out if they ship to GB first. I've heard nothing but good things about Jab-Tech

Heh, those were my idle temps. Last time I tested with Prime95 x64, my load temp was ambient +23C.

Yh they do ship to GB thts why the shipping is so high (65$) usually 10$ for u americans maybe i could put another rs120 rad in there will it be worth the difference

I would have thought the shipping would be a little bit high. But I say go for it, even if it's not needed much know. Could always use it for future expansion

Do you get the lag with the HT off? I know it can lower you GFlops/sec using IBT. You might want to try setting Prime to 8 threads to see if that will even the load out over the cores. As far as temps go, the Mega with high speed fans can keep up with WCing up to a point and I'm guessing you never got your OC to that point. For my i5 750 3.8 temps are almost the same as my 4.0 temps on water. This tells me that my OC is not limited by heat. But when I had my Mega there was a 16°C difference from 3.8 to 4.0 and I was limited to 3.8 because of heat. The more you OC your CPU the more you will see the WC pull away from the Mega.

Ok... While I wait for my kit to arrive, I have some questions.

- I was thinking about buying some cheap, "disposable" plastic tubing at my local Home Depot to leak test the set up first OUTSIDE of the case. What I was thinking about was installing all the barbs and make sure they are properly seated/tightened. I would basically be taking them out of the equation once I install everything inside the case in its final position and run a second leak test using the supplied tubing. Probably more work but it's also more peace of mind.

- Would teflon tape be advisable on the threads of the barbs? (basic plumbing principles kicking in here)

- Since I will be cooling only the CPU for now and the RS360 will be mounted on the back of the case (externally) - should I look to make the whole set up as "linear" as possible between the radiator, the block and the reservoir? This also begs the question - should I eliminate the back exhaust case fan now since I will have the radiator on the other side of that exhaust?

- RAD ---> CPU ---> PUMP/RESV ---> back to RAD seems to have heated water accumulate in the reservoir (adding heat to the case?) while RAD ---> PUMP/RESV ---> CPU ---> back to RAD seems to have all of the heated water on the outside of the case mostly. Make sense? (I read that it seems like it does not make any noticeable difference but want to make sure on my thinking). Also, does having the RAD on the outside help to cool faster/more? I tend to think it would.

Linearity is good, and teflon tape is good if you so choose. it is by no means necessary for operation though. The way you're thinking of setting it up, outside for primary leak test is not necessary either, a good 5-10 psi of pressure will be enough to stop them from leaks. Make sure the supplied O-rings are in place on the barbs. As far as external radiator set up, that is how mine was initially done, then I moved it inside the case, as I found I had the necessary room after all. Do not eliminate the back exhaust case fan, you'll have a positive case pressure if you do that, and you wont have the normal flow of air either. No matter how you set up the loop, the temperature will acclimate itself the same as any other way you set up the loop. Dont worry about that IMO. Also, having the radiator outside the case does help it cool faster, as you're running cooler air through the radiator thereby lowering the temperature of the water faster than if it was inside the case.
