    Water Cooled cpu took fover to get the right pump but now its all good (its a pump used for aqurium filteration but I removed the filters and I bought it at petco its expensive though this is the brand name Penn Plax Cascade Canister Filters). Oc'ed my cpu to 2.8 run stable. At stock cpu settings System temps are 23c to 24c idle with water cooling and without water cooling it used to be 30c idle.
    3dmark 05 at stock I get 4585.

    Very enteresting. Cabling doesn't obstruct airflow, H2O set-up is one of a kind. 8/10 for me

    Watch out! Are those white cable ties for securing the hoses? That's terrible. You need jubilee clips. The cable ties are not strong enough to ensure unpullable connections! Fix it fast before a disaster! 1/10 before 7/10 after fix.

    Your talking about the zip ties right because there just as thight as any clamp and they have been on there forever and never leaked yet plus metal clamps are to big to put on my cpu water block. What would you recomend send me a link ok.

    One of a kind setup you have there m8...
    Just like Completely Bonkers said to use metal clamps will work much better than cable ties.
    I gave you 8/10 for presentation.
    Good luck with the water cooling....

    Good effort, I would get rid of the cable ties on block and turn it 90* you will have trapped air in the block @ the top, thus giving not the best cooling ;)
