At one point we achieved -3c on the speed fan temps..... the extake on the H50 from the cpu was room temp, the intake from the radiator was ice-cold!

No bad sensor at all. We're brain-storming idea's of how to drop the temp even lower and see if we could overclock his chip to 5.0ghz, if hes successful. I'm personally one step closer to purchasing a Maximus III and a i5-760 myself.
beware of condensation...

I would have loved to see some pics of the project and some bench runs rather that just another "are these good temps" thread..

Kinda ruined to whole point of it for me...

Also, its not really a new idea http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...slush-box.html....
Here are some other rather innovative concepts http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ler-build.html

Simply cooling it all down for an idle SS tho is pointless... Lets see that puppy at 5.0.... I know sizzle holds down 2nd place on HWBot for the i5-760 with 4.7, and he did it on Air....
