Well, After 9 months of not working on my Computer and just neglecting it, I finally came around to cleaning it out and redoing the loop...


Here are the Before Pictures.

















My god was that Radiator and case dusty. Had to bring the whole case and radiator to my dads shop to use the heavy compressed air on it. The dust was just caked onto that radiator.

I bought some fan grills\\filters to try to keep some of the dust out of my case and radiator. Hopefully it helps out.




Moving On....(Re-assembly)











So got the new loop up... Good to go? Heck no. Found out the motherboard crapped out on me. All that work for nothing. Had to go to MicroCenter to look for the same Asus motherboard, but found out they were discontinued... So I went ahead and picked up a EVGA 790i Motherboard. And 2GB of some Cheap OCZ DDR3 Ram.














And here is the Final Results...

















Done? Nope. Screwed up the tubes intake and out-take. I need to change the tubing around. Shouldn't be that big of a deal.... I Hope...

How much did your performance degrade with all that dust in the rad?

Nifty looking stuff there Pope. Bad luck about the mobo though.

Watercooling Loop: MCP655 Vario -> Black Ice GTX360 -> Stinger Diamond Max -> Heatkiller GPU-X² -> MicroRes

Actually to my surprise there really was not that big of a temp difference. I am running around 5c cooler now. I need to change the tubing around though. Because right now it is going like this, Pump --> Res. --> GPU --> CPU --> Rad..... I was a wee bit toasted when I setup the tubing. I'm sure when I switch it around I will see a bigger difference.

you really need a shroud on the radiator to get 100% use out of it.
as you can see by the dust imprint just how much of your radiator
was not being cooled at all.
as far as i can tell your system was only being cooled by 2/3 of the radiator,
1/3 had next to no air flow on cooling at all, thats why their is no dust and still
looks new.

What did i get for 140.00?
a DEAD XBOX 360 from ProjecT TimeZ that he opened up before he sent it to me.

after doing business with paypal for 11 years, i filed my first clame ever on project timez, I LOST.

All hale ProjecT TimeZ, you got 140.00 out of me, enjoy your Victory.
