    Nice, what are the temps of your Core 2 Duo E2160 CPU with the water cooling on it?

    i think the sensor is jammed, core temp and abit eq says its 67ºc under load (sayed the same with my thermalright cooler) and the block is cold to the touch, speedfan says 50ºc in load wich is much more credible :)

    Don't worry about going by the 'to the touch' method.



    Temps should be a bit lower than that. Can you tells your BIOS idle temperature?

    Nice setup but the temps do seem a little on the high side.

    I run at around 30'c under full load with a AMD X2 5200 @ 3.0ghz watercooled. Like newconroer said bios is your best bet for a as close to accurate temp as you will get. Also I find coretemp to be a very good program, you can download it Here.

    do you have any links to the specs?

    What is the max head height?

    That is just as important if not MORE important than the flow rate

    on the pump it says:
    Hmax m - 1.3
    is that it?

    edit:
    is it good or bad?

    OK, this is what I found.....

    It has a a max head height of 120cm, which is roughly 4 feet

    Of which, that isnt very high. The Flow rate of 600 liters per hour is at a ZERO head height. So the higher you go, the lower the flow rate gets until you hit 4 feet. At that point the flow rate will be slim to none.

    The reason why I am explain all of these is because of your water loop. It is a bit long..... I see you ran it so that it would look better, but you are loosing flow rate because of it.

    I would suggest making the smallest loop possible to maximize the flow rate, which will cool everything MUCH better

    That was exactly what I was thinking about!

    Also, you dont need to run the lines so that they run on top of your MB.... just run them straight across.

    Remember, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line
