im on a full custom loop dedicated for cpu only using 1 420 EK 60mm thick rad in push/pull and a 240 rad in push, with 2 D5's pumps in a "serial" EK dual pump block and a Heatkiller ProIV all copper waterblock with slightly stiffer mounting springs for more pressure. I idle in the mid 20's in a 67f room. under extreme full 100% stress testing load, i havent yet seen a single core go over 74c. Ill have to post a few pics of my water setup in the watercooling thread soon, im really happy with how it all turned out. here is a quick pic i took after filling loops with coolant. Blue loop is "CPU" and green is "GPU".. you can see the roof of the case houses my 2 420mm rads in push/pull (1 is for cpu, 1 for gpu) and in the lower portion of case, i have my 240 rad in push for the 2ndry rad for cpu loop. with the 2 D5's in the cpu loop, the flow is ridiculous!
