    Shrouds do localize the direction of air flow but having a fan with good air pressure should perform adequately. One thing it does allow is the added space between the fan and the radiator. Which in turn allows the fan to run at it's spec. when that particular fan has issues when butted against grated or finned array. So if the fan is weak in that regard a shroud would help it.

    looks nice, and the plans sound sweet.... but why the hell do you use that cheap,ugly tubing? :laugh:
    surely ruins the looks of an otherwise interesting build ;)
    how are the temps with the new rad?

    Hell, I have 3 38mm Ultra Kaze 3000s you could have for shipping. They're too damn loud, even on a controller. At low volts they make the little "tick tick tick" common to fans of that nature.

    Yeah, the price can scare some.. but, I just relooked at the Larkooler.. It has Mosfet cooling.. Wonder how well it does.. I like it all but the fans :p

    & VGA...

    But, I don't know about the CPU cooler.. it seems kinda "small" for what they picture..

    It could very well be a new "therm" build.

    I'm thinking of grabbing a the new Koolance D5 Duel res. I think it would be nice in the Pedestal. Right in the middle of the side panel.

    Yeah, it is... Thinking of a bay type res now.. Or, doing two loops, and grabbing one (two) of this (these) and playing with the front..

    My first build had FrozenQ's res in it.. But, that think leaked all over via the bottom.. Thank god I didn't have it hooked in the case..

    Well, I noticed a white line of waxy, soap scum feeling jazz on the sides of my 60mm res tube that I just replaced with a 100mm tube, so I want to give my loop a good flushing. I'm thinking it's from the tubing, or from the collodial silver I added to my distilled water.

    Should I add some white vinigar to the loop, run it for a while, then flush it out with more distilled water? I've never done it, and was hoping not to have to remove any components from my case.

    IIRC, it was supposed to be a 50/50 mix, but I'll let the others chime in.

    either way, straight or 50/50. The mix is easier to clean after, less rinsing, full strength will take more rinsing;)

    Got it all flushed out, added 3 more GTs (making 7 total), and swapped the 60mm tube on my EK res with a 100mm one for more capacity. It's now whisper quiet. The only thing left is to swap my PSU with a new Seasonic, and probably 3 more GTs on the back of the tripple.
