    Swifty MCP655 Vario. Mine is dead silent, but I have been told that isnt the norm with these, most users complain of noise.

    well I am waiting for the cash got none . once I sell some things I can get one . I was thinking a Danger Den pump not sure just yet .
    But that set up is really sweet LOOKIN ! :rockout: You also know it is more than looks as well this thing has to be given you some really nice low temps . That is a good amount of rad you have ( Not as much as I have :D ) But way more than enough to do the job . :rockout:

    How do you like the top on your 655? Have you noticed any increase in head or flow, or is it just easier to configure routing? Maybe it is the cause of your quiet pump. Like I've said, mines kind of whiney. Might be a good option for me.

    Stock it was just as quiet. I got the top as a result of me needing routing options and Cold Storm having one at an amazing price.

    I know you've already looked at your options, but how come the barbs couldn't be positioned towards the front of the case? The top placement will be great, from the pic you posted earlier it will be a peice of cake, I was just wondering.

    I have a top rad as well, with my pump at the bottom, so all in all, our loops will be esentially the same layout when your done.

    EDIT:
    Also, from the WC thread:
    Looks like your breaking the bank!:laugh::D

    Down the bottom works. If I put the barbs facing the front I could drill a hole for the tubing and get a 90 degree fitting for the res input.

    EDIT: Still hits the darn PSU wires :(

    EDIT but I thinks I have found the way to mount it :D. Down the bottom on the front :D

    EDIT. 5mm too thick to go underneath the bezel. haha

    Stuff has arrived well most of it has. Still waiting on the chipset waterblock that should have got here this week. Our daughter is going in to the RCH in Melbourne to trial a decanulation of her tracheostomy next week. Will fit the W/C gear when we get home.

    I hope all goes well with your daughter and her tube. I'm sure you'd smash your rig with a sledge if it guaranteed all would be well. Funny how stuff like that reminds us that this is all just fun and games, a nice luxury.

    Thanks, It has been over 2 years now of a lot of sleepless nights and worry along with a lot of hard work. I left my job. But it is all worth it. Our daughter is going to be ok and thats the main thing.:)

    My Chipset and mosfet waterblocks arrived. In shocking condition too. Had a human hair in between it and there was a sludgy white build up in it that smelt like the build up you get on a car battery. Anyway I pulled it all apart and washed rinsed ect. I might even try and get new o-rings for it aswell. There is a sinister looking mark on one of the copper blocks that was not there untill after I cleaned it. Going to do the GPU block now aswell and then in a few more days it shall be up and running hopefully leak free :D.

    Sweet mother, that looks like it was a bunch of cleaning. Did you use alcohol to kill the crud? On the blocks, not yourself:)

    The waterblock is second hand. It was purchased and paid for instantly on another forum. Waited for a long time for it to arrive and it never did. I got a mod involved and hey presto it arrives on a Monday morning with a stamp saying it was posted the Friday. This white stuff was also on other things inside the package. Almost as if he was upset with me for waiting 3 weeks and getting a mod to sort it for me. :D

    Well if he wanted to sell it then he should not be upset.
    Simple.

    It annoys me big time when a seller gets a prompt payment and then takes their sweet time to send the goods.
