    Just make sure that the reservoir is higher then the pump. How you design your loop is up to you (based on your PC Case).

    For me, I have my video card and CPU water blocks going to the rad then reservoir then pump.

    So I finally talked you into, eh? lol. As for coolant, I just use straight distilled water. It still cools the best.

    No leaks it appears. Going to test for a while tho. DangerDen sent me two cracked plexi glass blocks(I got them for free, for overclocking(well I have to use them and show them off). I think they sent me the ones they couldn't sell. So I'm making sure that they are not leaking 100%.

    Getting the bubbles out before I crank 17v to the pump.

    Is there a chance they have Delrin versions? (acrylic is the worst material for H20 stuff)

    I'm just guessing what it's made of.

    I really don't know.


    No leaks still.

    Glad on the no leaks..

    the clear tops are Acrylic, its the cheapest plastic to use/mfg.
    (Quote from DD site "Acrylic Top")

    I notice on the new 260/280 tops they use a smoke Acrylic (Lucite, same stuff just different name) piece as well.

    (this is not gust to pick on DD, any top that is clear may be acrylic)

    wow thats alot of volts!

    I tried and tried and tried to get a stable a 4ghz, but even up to 1.7 volts I could not achieve it, and with the temps right now Im running my Q at 3Ghz & 1.2V, with the whole water setup, core temps still reach mid 50's with this damn heat!

    One of the video cards are leaving today, and hopefully another soon(buy it!), and Im not putting the new vc's on water, they just add toooo much heat for a single loop in the summer. If they were on a seperate loop, no prob, but i only have one.

    hey I prob could use a larger rez, expect I have NO WHERE to put it, it would have to be external and I have had enough with whats outside the case already.

    I am currently using a single 5.25 bay rez, and i really dont like it, its a pain to bleed, it sucks air from time to time, and its been nothing but a headache!

    I only have 1 5.25 bay open, so I cannot use a double bay rez, and there isnt much more room to put one, any ideas??
