    That is a very attractive wallpaper. If that's Austrailia, then it's about time I spend some blurry days puking in public trash cans in whatever nifty looking city that is. Although, most vacations feel like a rip off, because it seems like I can drink like crazy at sea level, but not catch a buzz.:confused:

    Thats Sydney Harbour mate. You would love it here. It is a nice place.


    Temps before with my IFX-14 where better than the H50 but still scared the hell out of me. It would shoot straight up to 63 when doing intel burn test and I did not like that so never ran the full test.

    Time for phase 2. I have picked up a XSPC 5970 waterblock second hand and a Swiftech MCR220 Rad and also some Koolance uv Blue 1/2 id tubing. Any ideas on where I should place the second RAD? There is plenty of room up top and down the bottom of my case to go either way. And I know my pump is rated at 800L an hour so is it going to be ok running 2 RADs?.

    ditch that pump and cpu block.

    pick up a Swiftech MCP355 and get a XSPC res top for it

    and then look at the EK Supreme HF cpu block. better temps and less restrictive

    I know im late but still

    What does your top look like with the panel off? On this pic it looks like it has fan holes clear to the imputs.

    [​IMG]

    That would be the easiest. Mount it on the top with some nice quiet 38mms pushing up. Then your pump could stay in the bays, squirt straight up to the tripple, down to the cpu, out to the double, in to the VGA, and back to the pump.

    I think you are doing a great job, even if it was your 100th crack at it.

    Some peoples children... ;)

    Flame you? Why come into someone's thread and shit all through it with bullshit when you already know I have no interest in changing the parts I have? All I can see is you are trying to make yourself look good in front of other people. People like yourself migrating from these other forums are making TPU a place that I no longer want to share my experiences and ideas with. You dont see me posting bullshit in your thread do you? I could say negative things about your pc but do I ?

    I am going to try and ignore the trolls. Here is the pic of the top.

    Here is how I imagine it with the rad down the bottom pulling air up from underneath.

    Looks like a good plan. Less dinking around, and cool air from the bottom. For some reason I had a tripple rad stuck in my head. Your's is the most logical placement for a dual rad.

    Which way is the flow in your pic, is it Pump>rad>gpu>rad>cpu>res/pump or pump>cpu>rad>gpu>rad>res/pump? Either way, I don't think it makes a hill of beans.:)

    Good luck, and happy building.
