Im still in the testing stages.. I may have had a bad mount, as i was using a VERY THIN, like, tracing paper thin spread of thermal paste, as i was running out and the store didnt have any left.. so i may try to re-seat the waterblock again when they re-stock.
Also remember im only running one 120 rad.. and its a thin profile one, so im pretty much just expanding on a rig like the h50.
This is my Plan B Setup. My Plan A was to mount a totally different reservoir at the bottom of the case where the hard drives are, run a larger low-flow rad as a cold air intake into the CPU block, then from the CPU block to the current exhaust rad, then back to the pump, thus using two 120mm rads for better cooling. But, unfortunatly the other res came cracked because it was -30c here and the UPS guy left it outside on the doorstep.. so that was 60 bucks down the drain and i had to revert back to this resivior, which meant I couldnt use my HDD cage in the 5.25 bays to free up the room in the case...
So Im not sure where i will go from here..
maybe see what the scout II looks like and if its better setup for a dual rad, pick that and a new rad up, or.. maybe go to a whole new case all together..
I also have a little tinkering i can do, like turn the blowhole around and intake some more fresh air into the case.. that might help as the only intake i have right now is the front 140mm..
Thanks King, Im certainly not disappointed in any way, i knew i wouldnt see drastic changes with only 1 rad, but i did see an improvement over my h70 so working on it today was worth the time. as i said above, eventualy ill go to another case or maybe re-purchase the resivoir that would let me get 2 rads into this case, but until then im still content with the setup!
