    All out of silver stuff. :( I'll try to make the black and white look "artsy". I'm putting it all on a tiered table with the bench on the lower part and my computer on the upper. I never have the damn side panel on so I figured why not do this though it's a bit overkill for a single CPU.

    I like the black and white. Too lazy to tell if it's already like this, but maybe RAD > CPU black, and CPU > RAD white hot? :)

    Actually I just came up with a different idea... Try to get the rads and pump all mounted on the lower level with the pump in the middle, drill a good size hole in the middle of the top for the return line, then just cut a hole in the bottom of my case and set it right on top of the bench. I could then still use my side panel if I wanted to... Hmmm.. this is a damn mess! :laugh:

    true indeed, but i heard of many people using it on the GPU, even in Revies i saw it quite a few times!;)
    I personally, find it pointless to have 2 different pastes for CPU/GPU;Mosfets... one for all i find the collest about the mx-2.... and its quite cheap too, especially the 30g tube! and that lasted for quite a few months even with more heavier use of me!:D

    can i recommend 3 things
    • tube
    • paint
    • zip ties
    what rad is that? Also what water block? Where is your chiller? temps please :eek:

    also here are my 2 rigs

    I mounted the rad using screws now so no more zip ties holding it in :)
    also worked on the WM alittle but still not the best. Going to cut some holes in the mobo tray for better WM.

    It came with my case so it uses thumbscrews. All you need to do is drill two or four holes wherever you want to mount it.

    I was round my mates place last night and noticed a green hose commin in the window of the spare room where he keeps the pc's :confused: so I asked him what's that doin,
    well he turned round and said it's the garden hose...:wtf: I said is the garden hose doin in here and where the hell is it going :eek: ... He said he was Vacuuming the room and knocked his old HSF of the table and it went strait down onto his RAD and put a dirty big hole in it which freaked the shit outta him just aswell the PC wasn't turned on at the time well not being able to purchase new rad till the next day he decided to mod his water cooling setup and fitted the garden hose as a source of cold water so it simply went in one end of the setup and back out the window into the drain and he was quite happily sitting there playin CnC RA3 and his CPU was not getting above 17°C which it would normally be sittin round the 30~35°C mark so I was pretty damned impressed :respect:
