Where are you ordering from, get the rx240 from Jab-tech, and they sell kill coils for cheap.

A silver coil is literally just a coil of silver. http://jab-tech.com/Antimicrobial-Si...p-pr-4530.html is their link

Ok...

Setup: CPU > RES/Pump > Rad > CPU
Thermal compound: AS5 (not fully broken in yet)

Am using crappy fans on my rad until the 3 x Yate Looks 120x25 (high) arrive tomorrow (hopefully) with a 25mm shroud (gutted fans). Pulling air into the rad, rad externally mounted & facing window.

Ambient temp: 26.6*C (80*F)

Is a CPU spike of 60*C during 10 successful IBT cycles to be expected? Rad/reservoir are fairly warm. I am expecting an additional 2-3*C improvement once I get the fans and the thermal compound breaks in.

Do I need an 8 or 12" for my loop?

How do those mount in the loop?

How long do I need to let the AS5 set up on the CPU before I mount the block?

I personally got an 8" strip, cut it in two (so they are easier to remove when needed), coiled them and dropped them into the reservoir. Others install them inside the tubing itself but I am not sure how to do this properly. Reservoir to me would be just as efficient and easier to do.

How do those mount in the loop?

(see above)

According to the manufacturers website, 200 hours worth of "cycling" time (off-on-run-off)

Ok... now add the goldfish and you will be golden.

That was actually my daughters idea... she said it would look cool to have goldfish or betas swimming in there...

Should I get a GTX 465 Twin Frozr GE for SLI or a XSPC Rasa rs240 kit?

And what do you use to cut the tubing and how do you drain the loop?

For the price of that GTX 465 you could get the RX360 kit and still have money left over!

Tough question. You plan on water blocking those cards in the future? You would be adding additional heat into the case by adding that second card all though I would not say it would prevent you from doing your thing though. Are you OC'ed at present? If so, the added heat "may" affect your OC. Many many factors to consider. Me? I'd water cool the whole thing up first and then expand later on.

I use my wifes plain old scissors to cut the tubing. A Paper guillotine would give you a perfect clean cut also.

To drain? Add a drain valve. Otherwise you would have a heck of a time draining without getting anything wet. I just did the draining with no valve and it took me about 45 mins. time preparing and draining while being careful not to get anything wet.

1st. Is it worth installing a nice drain tube to aid in H2O removal? Or are they ineffective?

2nd. Is there a way to monitor the pump rpm? (Stock RS360 Kit) If so and it's not in the kit, what would it take?

3rd. If the pump rpm is NOT monitored how does one know with confidence, if there is a system failure, how does one safely protect his system? (Before you fry something lol).
another way to do it is use a program like coretemp and have it shut down your computer incase of overheating, and just set it to something low.

My max load temp is only 43c, so i have mine to shut down at 50c so by the time it catches it, and shuts it down, my cpu won't be too hot.
