    I recently traded my bedroom-style CRT television (which couldn't have been more than a 19 incher) for a 32" LCD TV. Now my 22" TFT seems so small...

    I still can't seem to get it how i want but i am working on it still and will keep working at it till i get what i want.

    i think it would look better if i took the outlet to the pump and put it on the one closer to it.or just sell the loop all together and get a Coolit ECO

    Tim if you can get me some pics of your case by the backside of the mobo so I can see what you got going on back there and stuff I might be able to throw in some ideas. I'm pretty good with cable management so I might be able to help a bit :)

    effortless hardware ruining too! :laugh:

    his block is good, but not the best performing... also, even me scratches the 50ies sometimes with a 955 @ 3.8 ghz 1.44v... and my radiation area is severely bigger,my block is better and my pump power is also not the problem anymore... seems like we have some heaty days just ;)

    They can be high because of the chip alone... he could have a hot chip with HT ON... is yours C0 or D0?

    63C on a chip like i7, im presuming this is Linpack Load, with HT on, is very very good. You would be dancing in the high 70's low 80's with aircoolers. Everyone that is saying that these temps are high has either a core2 or a phenom, both of which run (or at least register on their temp sensors) much lower temps.

    If you had a Q9650 or something like that you would be in the low 50's.

    I wonder what load temps would be w/o HT? I'm assuming it may crunch a tiny bit less, but temps should drop roughly 5º.
