    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:

    Thanks guys, it's been awhile since I have done anything with my rig. Just thought I would tweak it a bit and post pics.:) This case looks bigger without that 2nd card in there! Yes I love the black/orange theme because well yeah H.L. but also at the time when I built it there was very little orange in other rigs. All I ever saw before was Blue, Red, Green, UV, White or Purple...but not Orange.:toast: Some of you know of the extent I went to get Orange LED fans and cathodes.;)

    Look'in good bro!:toast: I'm just curious, why did you decide to mount the rad on the outside of the case? (keep it room temperature or did not fit with motherboard maybe?)

    Sweet:cool:

    EDIT; Wow those are some good temps @3.3Ghz!


    I cant wait to venture back into water cooling, I am saving up for a full tower (Haf-X or 800D)because as much as I love my Tempest it is a big pain in the neck to WC.




    ....and NO I'm not selling my Tempest case EVER!!!!:laugh:
