Help DC Overclock His i7 950 - Page 4

post #31 of 32
At this point I'm thinking the H50 is probably better. with the hose issue, this barely beats the stock heatsink. I wonder if it's possible for me to replace the tubing and put in my own liquid? Anyway, I think I'll end up with exactly the same cooling you have. I'm still wondering where I can mount the rad though. NZXT put in holes for the tubing, but nowhere to put screws in. This is quite perplexing. Also, would you recommend the acrylic CPU block, or full nickel?

EDIT: Ahh, forget mounting it. I'll build an external box, and route through the provided holes. Much easier, and I can probably put in 2-3 loops that way (CPU, and one for each GPU, assuming I go x-fire).

I have this block. I was seriously considering going with the acrylic/nickel one but decided against it, acrylic can crack.

The rest of my loop goes as follows:

MP-655B pump, EK Supreme HF, Koolance 4x120MM rad and then EK 240 Basic res.

I'm really happy with how the loop turned out, the acrylic/nickel block looks amazing, let me see if I can find pics..



I've got some really good pictures on my camera but I cant be bothered to get out of bed and find it, lol.
