    Idle with fans on low RPM, high RPM drops things 4-6c except the HD which never gets hot in the first place. CPU is oc'd from 3.2 to 4.0 GHz

    I think the darkest red would look nice! The led fans would drown out on the lighter red mesh right? Have you thought about painting more then just the mesh? check out k.3nny"s log of his paint job. He painted some trimming of the case to blend in with the mesh and it looks really nice! If you did something like that with your black and red scheme that would looks sick.:rockout:

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz AM3

    I have a M59 And i really liked! Good spec's!

    When ever i get the upgrade itch i move my computer parts to the M59 for a few months then move back to the tempest this helps me not spend to much money. and it fills like a new build each time:D

    I like the second picture looks sweet!

    Ok, pics are up! I didn't have a chance to do any benchmarks or overclocks today. We still need to get a decent cpu cooler because this stock one is crap, but other then that everything is running smooth. Enjoy!:cool:

    So, here's my new challenge. I have this NZXT Vulcan here:

    [​IMG]

    And some newly acquired liquid cooling equipemnt here:

    [​IMG]

    My goal is to water cool the CPU, IOH, and GPU with the following.

    XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Kit
    Koolance CHC-122 (MB) Liquid Cooling Chipset Block
    EK Radeon HD 6970 VGA Block
    An extra 4' of PrimoChill PrimoFlex Tubing

    Never done water cooling before. My ECO is good, but I need cool my 6950. It gets real hot and noisy when gaming. So it's time to get wet for real.

    Anxiety tells me to do it all at once, but common sense tells me to do the CPU first and move on. I have no experience in draining and refilling a system like this, so it's a little unnerving.

    My current plan has the radiator mounted on the back and the resevoir/pump in the lower front of the case.

    Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

    This is going to be interesting because the Vulcan is a tiny case. I see you got the XSPC Rasa kit, very nice! My only beef with your choice is that Feser coolant crap. I would recommend Distilled water with PT nuke Biocide. UV coolant does look really cool with uv cathodes but produces a lot of oxidation and other chemical build up within the loops. I can't wait to see some progress.:)

    Thanks. Still building up my nerve. Probably get started this weekend. And space will be a challenge.

    I knew I would get some flak for the fesser fluid, but I want it to be blue. :D

    I did get a free kill coil. Got to learn the hard way I guess. :eek:

    I use Antec TriCool LED. They are 3 speed adjustable and have bright blue lights. Or red, or green. :cool:
