    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.

    this one isn't much to say.. It's silent and it crunches 24/7 also runs cool so what more is to be said

    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:

    this res is 55mm wide http://www.xspc.biz/x2o450.php so if you have that amount of room i think it would work, or a bay res with pump included
