    Do you already have the PCI-E and 24Pin remover tool. If you don't it is a good idea because those pins cannot be removed with the save my wallet pin remover.

    You may already know this but I am just giving you a heads up as that tool is a lifesaver.

    Staples work, but they're a ROYAL pita imho. I also used a small watchmakers screwdriver, that's almost exactly the same as a normal pin remover :)

    Loop looks good CB. Only see one thing. Maybe this can help.. Can't you turn the CPU block to make it where it's less tubing for the rad to block? I mean counterclock wise 180 and it should make for even less tubing from the rad>block.. It shouldn't matter temp wise since you have enough head on the pump.

    Ether way, it's a good look for that system. :respect:

    This summer so far has been really cool, but the heat is starting to pick up. So I decided to remove one of my gtx285's to reduce on the heat coming from my rig. Also from doing that my pci-e x1 is available for me to install this X-fi Fatal1ty card I had laying around.:)

    I figured since I'm doing this I might as well re-apply the TIM on my H50, because when I installed it at the time I was running really low on thermal compound and ended up mixing a bunch of pastes (cm stock, zerotherm, ocz, zalman) together:laugh: Hopefully re-appling some Gelid GC-extreme to the cpu will drop temps a little bit. Also I have the push/pull exhausting out the case and I have seen some setups as an intake? I was thinking of trying that....what do you guys think?

    Yes my first crappy cell phone pic!

    Very sweet rig.:) I'm a huge Half-Life fan so i love the theme

    And in the case of the H50 i personally think it's best to have the fan intaking cool air from the outside of the case and threw the rad. I believe Corsair recommends this to.

    I knew I heard about it from somewhere, thanks CD:) I think I will give that a try.

    EDIT:

    Ok so I removed one card, reapplied the TIM and flipped the fans to intake cool air from the outside in. Well much to my surprise the temps stayed the exact same and I kinda feel like it was a big waste of my time.:ohwell:
