Update: Did some minor cable rearrangement, got rid of lighting (temporarily), and took a complete side view to show a better view of the radiator and how it's mounted. Three new photos uploaded (Pic #2, #4, and #5).

Yeah, when I got this thing and held it in my hands, I felt it was heavy I could use it as a diving brick.


I was seriously scared to put it on the card and I thought the slot would crack or snap off but to my amazement the mounting brackets actually hold it incredibly firm; and as you can see it doesn't dip or sag at all.

The most ridiculous thing about the HEATKILLER (and what made it worth every penny) is the absurd temperature drop.

On air I had:

Idle: 55 *C
Load: 75 *C
Full Furmark Burn: 98 *C

With the HEATKILLER:

Idle: 32 *C
Load: 40 *C
Full Furmark Burn: 45 *C

That's literally less than half the temperatures I had on air.
And the air test was with stock clocks while the watercooled test was with maximum overclock and overvoltage.

Well GPU max is 105*C but that's still below the safe limit. NVIDIA designs them so there is overhead. At 105*C it starts to slow down the card to lower the temps and if it gets past 115*C it just shuts off entirely. The safe limit is probably around 150*C or more which is impossible to ever reach so it's pretty much impossible to kill a card because of high temps (unless it was a manufacturing defect).

Isn't that CPU a tad hot on load?

You are going Rad > Pump > 295 > NB > CPU right?
Did you do this to favor the 295 and its heat? When my 295 was in my rig air cooled, it ran out, but 69c load for W/C is even hotter than some Air coolers for that CPU.

Actually, considering how much I overclocked it that's a pretty good temperature. In fact it's even 10 degrees cooler than my previous D-Tek Fuzion V2 waterblock. Also keep in mind this is IntelBurnTest which is at least 10 degrees hotter than Prime and even Prime doesn't represent the regular load temps for the CPU. So in reality, my CPU regular "load" temps are probably around 57 *C - 58 *C tops.

And if you look closely and follow it, my loop is actually:

Res/Rad > CPU > NB > GTX295 > Pump > Res/Rad

The pump is hard to see cause it's hidden in the middle hard drive cage section behind the wires but you tell that's where it is if you follow the tubing.

Has anyone come across rendering issues with COD MW2, such as floors, weapons and charcters failing to render fully and then degrading to the point where only the flak jackets are visible thus making online playing a nightmarre for targeting? I've NEVER had an issue with my Dragon Rig since it was built in June.....all 29 other games installed run perfectly on full whack and I've never had so much as a hiccup from any of them(they include GTA 4, Arkham Asylum, Op Flash Dragon Rising, Resi 5, Velvet Assassin, Left 4 Dead 2)...so I'm wondering why during an online game my graphics slowly deteriorate?
