    Or you could save up for a proper watercooling system :)

    I'm going to try one more thing, adding the higher speed fan to do push pull. If that doesn't do it when it's 100% by the book I'm going to be at a loss. As for proper water.. it might be cheaper to just get a better chip, not to mention less work.

    If you feel like doing some modding I found this . Could be interesting.

    Looks like the diameter tubing and amount of fluid in the system are two bottlenecks for the cooler. Good find.

    Issue is the H70 doesnt mount tubes to the head in the same fashion. The H70 has 90* fittings in the side now:(

    Whhhaaattt??? Adding a second fan dropped the temp 10c. Must be a pressure issue getting through that thick rad.

    Yeah for sure. You can see when dye was added that the pump easily copes with that set up.:toast:

    Now I just need a nice radial sticker to cover the crappy one on the flip side of my fan. The spiral strut look on the back is kinda cool though.

    Edit* Peeled a sticker off another fan.

    Having it blow in really does effect ambient. My gpu idles 5c higher now.

    That's what I found. Then I added the Coolit tec unit, and that dropped coolant temps lower than ever, and this LOWERED case temps.


    I've using the H70 now...so much better than H50...but I think I'm gonna pipe the H70 and H50 together...

    Don't add higher speed fans, have you tried using gentle typhoons ( 1850rpm ones) they're the king when it comes to radiators.

    No, never had any luck with scythe. Ceasing up or spitting out oil all over shit. And by higher speed I just meant the one from the kit. I guess I should have just said higher noise, my CM R4 is the same rpm but a lot quieter.

    Observation about this intake setup; after 30 minutes stressing temps are rising slowly after the case becomes saturated. Probably because the rad is inside the case. It's like an easy bake oven in there right now.

    Bad times : [

    Perhaps some other fans that aim for high static pressure instead, don't know of many TBH D:

    I found a mass review for the best radiator fans but have no idea where I saw it : /

    Perhaps someone else has seen it too?

    H70 is a great cooler

    10c drop with the extra fan O;

    I got the ultra kaze, On a fan controller, I had washer bolts in the garage, and the screw can fit in between the ultra kaze spreader, I had the right screw driver to do it.

    And i screwed in perfectly a Ultra kaze outside of the kase, wire threaded to the water loop hole right below on the antec 902, and i cant even see the wire, great little mod

    droped temps 3-5c :)

    Ultra kaze is beast, but will probably die in a year, so im getting a delta when that happens. :roll:

    Sniper Scott

    Today I built a rig for my friend Scott who was in need of an upgrade asap. He gave my his budget and I recommended him most of the parts. He doesn't know much bout pc's and surprisingly he pick out the CM Sniper mid-tower case, which I think was an excellent choice.:toast:

    Anyway here are the specs:

    Intel i7 920 cpu
    Evga X58 board
    Evga GTX465 1gb
    Corsair 750HX psu
    Corsair 6gb XMS3
    WD 1TB Black hdd
    Samsung cd/dvd

    The overall experience building the Sniper was great, I removed the hdd cage to allow for better airflow from the front 200mm fan and mounted the hdd in the bottom drive bay, also added a bottom intake fan. The only mistake Scott made was the optical drive, he bought an IDE instead of sata:slap: and the usb/audio/1394 cable are white which is a bit of an eye sore IMO and would look sooo much better if they were black.

    Enjoy!

    Nice looking build, snapshot. As far as IDEs go, that's not a bad looking one. The EVGA label an the way you positioned it make it look nice and clean.

    @ Chicken Patty - Is that a 295 Hydro? I was just looking at one of those in the B/S/T thread. Neat.
