    Correct. See www.overclock.net. I bought a 760GC and a 740GF but didn't installed them yet, still waiting for the vrm heatsinks.

    Same username as here :). I never posted in there.
    I was just looking in that thread in regards to researching performance, and I noticed that that user was from Portugal, and had the same specs.

    Where are you using the Peltier coolers? I hear they are inefficient and use a lot of power. Sounds like you want your rig really running cool - are you going for high overclocks?

    The peltiers are being used as a chiller. 2 3/8 barbs on it, water goes in hot, comes out cold. The peltier plates are cooled with heatsinks. This was custom made by Zaqwsx-

    Yes, they can be inefficient and power guzzlers. It gets really hot in Australia in the summer, ambient's of 40C, meaning that radiators can sometimes not work at optimum performance. I am also going for high 24/7 overclocks, hoping for 5Ghz Stable 24/7(With turbo throttling).

    You really don't need that much radiator space to get better than stock. Theres this guy an overclock.net who has a 2500k or 2600k with a gtx 670 overclocked on a single 120mm monsta radiator. He gets pretty good temps for better than stock.

    Nice

    That thing is sweet! You should do 5 GHz easily, with coolant temps way below ambient. I like the way it's built. With decent airflow over the heatsinks, it should work great, and if it overheats it will only melt some plastic. Please let us know how it all works out and what your temps end up at.

    Thanks, When I purchased the TEC chiller, it was love at first sight :p. I'll have a high RPM 140 Scythe fan on angled pull(So it get some airflow into my case), and a CM Sickle flow on push.

    Going way below ambient will cause condensation on components and thats not cool for electronics. You'll have to do extra insulation and protection of parts which you don't want to get into contact with water...

    Already thought of that, this is why the wattage of the TEC's can be limited. I will be insulating if necessary though.

    More on topic-
    Been looking at some reviews, the 760GC seems to offer similar performance to antec Kuhler 620 mods on GPU's, despite the 760GC having a cpu to cool aswell.

    Exactly. But what I am mostly after is a quiet computer. I tired of hearing vacuum cleaner when gaming.

    Get some noctua's if the budget allows, or just get some Gentle Typhoons.

    Yeah, thanks. I already have them ;-) bought one for each radiator, I hope one is enough for the 760gc, if not I'll just buy another one. I already gave :
    - asetek 760gc
    - asetek 740gf
    - 2x noctua nf-f12 PWM 120mm fan
    - arctic cooling MX 04 thermal paste (I read it might be worth replacing the one that comes applied on the asetek pumps)

    I am still waiting for ;

    - 2x arctic cooling VR004 heatsinks (since my gpu's are not reference model will have to cool Mosfet and ram)
    - 2x arctic cooling P9 PWM 92x25mm fan to blow some air to that area
    - 2x Gelid VGA to 4 pin PWM adapters (to connect the 92mm fans directly to the gpu)

    I surely hope everything works as it should, right now the top gpu gets to 96 degrees when gaming, I will report back when it's done.

    Check a review on the 760gc

    I don't think you will be able to connect the fans directly to the GPU, as the asetek unit uses the GPU fan header for the pump block.

    That would probably be to plug into your CPU fan header, to view the current RPM of the pump.Just checked the manual, that is for you to plug in the Fan in that goes on the radiator.

    Sorry if you didn't get the edited post? It's for the fan that goes on the radiator, fans have female plugs.

    Where did you check the manual? Can you please post a link?
    Thanks :)

    Yeah, ur right! Thanks!
    I only ordered one fan for each rad to have the least possible noise but now I´m thinking that maybe I should have two on the 760gc, its a thicker rad that has to cool gpu+cpu, whats your opinon?

    The power of google....... Well, Mr Mendes, I don't think that push/pull would make a considerable difference, as the radiator does not have a high FPI to my knowledge.. Although it may make some difference(Maybe a couple degrees?), and if I was you, I would be doing push/pull.

    I am very sneaky :laugh:. I did a search for push-pull on the 760gc, as I was looking for information, and a youtube comment showed up, I check the channel, and it just happened to be that user was about to watercool 2 570's. youtube user/tonebadalhoc
