    the tornado has a 120 exhaust but it is held in place by a clip thingy and the clip is like smaller than a 120

    idk custom built water cooling is self contained in a way as well... idk but the water doesn't leave the unit, and i never have to open.. at least not for 9-12 months anyways....

    Would if not of been simple to disregard the clip and drill a few holes?

    Sorry if your not the guy with the case and is buying an entire new one just for a cooler.



    @ Binge


    Over here the H50 and Domino ALCs cost 50 quid. so do true 120exs

    Both the WC systems shit all over the true 120 ex in terms of performance, and the true doesn't even come with fans!


    They're bargains over here ;)


    True 120 ex max temp @ 3.6 ghz 1.5 volts with this xeon 95c

    Max temp when I had a Domino strapped down. 77c

    That's not bad :p

    Not really, maybe some trickling water inside the tubing because I heard that.

    panther i calculated that you need to spend about £75 in total on a custom water cooling kit, with includes 2m of 1/2' tubing, coolant, cpu block, 2 GPU blocks, res/pump, velcro, 10 barbs and a black ice 240 radiator

    With all these clubs- there should be a more basic club... "The All Copper Club".

    I would have gotten an H50 but decided against it when I found a ThermalTake V1 "Extreme Edition" (Its a Black Widow Best Buy Edition, but the same exact thing as the Extreme Edition on newegg for $62) for $42 after tax. Keeps my temps in the low 20s idle and tops out at 38-40C loaded.

    Make sure you plug in the Corsair H50's CPU fan pump to a continuous power source so it can run in maximum speed. I’ve noticed many people don’t plug in the pump in the proper location and there temps go up.
     
    codyjansen and Chicken Patty say thanks.
