    Sorry if in wrong place - couldn't find the water cooling thread???

    Well, finally got my loop finished. Apart from the smallest coil whine that doesn't bother me above gaming sounds it's pretty much where i want to be. Temps on i7 3930 at a small oc (4GHz) are barely breaking 50 during BF3 and looping unigine on max settings 7970 rises to 43 degrees (at 1150 core).

    The ludicrously large reservoir is what helps keep temps lower imo. That and a quad 120 in the base and a single 120 in the front.
