I've just installed an old Corsair standalone kit (HydroCool 200), and water pump has a slight clicking noise to it... Is this normal, or is it just the flow indicator I'm hearing?

lol no clicking isn't normal.<br />
<br />
A water pump should sound a little quieter than a fish tank bubble pump.. so more like a quiet hum

It's very light clicking, so it may just be the small flow indicator. Not sure, so no clicking from the pump? Alright, anyone know a good pump to integrate with this kit? Budget wise, please...

</div> That kit has 1/4 tubing doesn't it? I like the 18W Laing DDC but they are about $75.00. You might try this one from Danger Den, you would have to use step down barbs to go to 1/4 tubing....<a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=230&cat=4&page=1" target="_blank">http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...0&cat=4&page=1</a><br />

150 gallons per hour. Right now I'm rated at 120 gal/hour. I think it would help quite a bit. Do you think the kit will handle more pressure, and if so, should I go with a higher flow rate? Thanks...

</div>You'll be fine. It's only 30gph. Go with a better pump if you want to. It just depends on how much you want to spend.

Convinced the wife to let me borrow my testicles for the day. I'll head out to Fry's and see what they got, or just do some browsing online. I want to stay below 80 for the pump.

You're gonna need them if you're going to Fry's. I don't think they will have a pump. Don't buy another premade kit even though they tell you it's the best. Listen to nothing they say and trust no one. God's speed my friend...God's speed.

I got this old kit at a computer auction for I thiknk around 40 or 50 ith two dvd burners, and the cpu water block, old swiftech version...<br />
<br />
Doesn't fit LGA775 socket retainers, so I modded some brackets for it, now I'm at 34C under 100% load... I hope that is suffice for now, but I still have to get that Northbridge cooled down quite a bit...<br />
<br />

</div> That looks like a Swifty pelteir WB. Sounds like it works well 34C at load is pretty good.What's your ambient temp?

29 at idle, and 32 at full load... But the northbridge chipset heatsink almost melts my skin at the touch of it under load. I was at 1130 fsb, but now I can only set it at 1066 respectively witht he mem at 800 instead of 860...(2.1V)

Just get an air chipset cooler. The Thremalright NB-1 is a great option. If your NB is too close to your video card like it is on the DFI boards you can get the Jing Ting Chipforce. I'm using it without the fan and it lowered my NB temp by 12C full load.

</div> Those are really good temp's did you get an active cooler for your NB yet?

No, I haven't gotten an active cooler yet, and the temps I displayed are the temps when I have the fsb throttled down to 1066 and 800 respectively. Not 1130 and 860. I tried reversing the case fans so they all blow inward, then it exhausts out the lowest drive cage vents, that seemed to drop the temps the best...

</div> Do you have a old case fan laying around that you could finagle around to sit close to the NB blowing on it? That might do the job and not cost anything..Try to have it blowing down on it...

Great advice, rigged it from the top exhaust fan holes and now my ambient is at 23C and the MB sensor states 25C... Sounds a little fishy. But at least its lower, +1 rep...
