    Too much for me if im honest. Really considering losing it and going with a full loop or a highend normal air cooler. Noctua or Thermalright etc.

    Looking good Mp. Makes me want to build a desk so I can do a little mod of myself! Nice work man. Love the second one as much as the first.


    I think you might like to have fun with a water loop. I can see you adding a dual rad on the door. Would look sweet, and nice to have the room for it.



    Good Luck

    I would add one there, but i like the freedom of easy opening and taking off (changed the door fans about 100 times this week).

    I think i'll get a PA120.3 (or similar) and mount it like the last loop, under the middle. Then run the tubing into the case where it'll simply go in, cool the cpu, cool the GPU(s) and straight back out. Hide the Res and Pump.

    Just need to decide what to do first:

    Sell LMX and get a CPU only loop
    Sell LMX and get a second 4870 and a mid/high end heatsink
    Sell LMX and 4870 and get mid/high end heatsink and update GPU.

    Hmmm... choices...

    Changed my plan, again.

    Wish UKers were as enthusiastic as some USers about this LMX :(

    Do you have good temps with the C12P? It was just barely enough for my 4GHz C0, but then again, I had to pump a lot more volts through it.

    So you going back to water or not?

    Glad you got good temps with it, I always found it treated me good.

    Nice, and the best part about the Noctuas is the lack of noice. If only I had an E0...

    Keep up the good work mate.

    The only thing I have issue with, and I am amazed by the quality and ingenuity of what you have done, is the choice of desk.

    Well, about 10 years ago, this desk was made (from scratch) for my by a family friend. The quality of it ment it cost shit loads.

    Im not just going to discard it.

    I undertand entirely and aesthetics, after all, are entirely subjective. I'm sure it's an excellent piece of furniture, I just don't like the look of it. ;)

    Look closely at the case... you might notice some 'similarities'
