    hey, i dont care what you say, it keeps my proc at 40c under load.... pretty damn good for a dual core p4, wouldnt you say?
    and my old cpu (3400+ 754 newcastle) ran at 23c idle, 30c load. so there.
    EDIT: make sure you realize my p4 is at 3.4, and my newcastle was at 2.8 (stock 2.4)

    I would use compression fittings, I wouldn't go anywhere near that! Looks like the rad is out of a 1982 ford cortina lol

    Yeah.. uses a nice and clean screw on fitting! You should turn your rad 180* so that the rad fills totally and there will be no air left in it!

    this is all i use....

    [​IMG]

    no srcew downs, just plug the tubing in like it was a headphone jack...

    i use poly tubing as well...its a bit stronger then the silicon tubing usually used and its neon colored.......plus with those fittings i have inline shutoffs....i can split any line into 3 or 4 other lines with one $2part...its quick and ez to change a system around or add to it...and they dont leak...these are stronger the compression fitting in that compression puts pressure on the tubing that will wear out and leak...these fitting dont put that kind of pressure on the tubing + the tubing is much stronger, so leaks just dont happen unless your unless its operator error....:rockout:

    PVC is made to stretch and give, the compression is just enough that it stops all leaks and doesn't crush the tubing!

    AS-5 needs to be spread as thinly as possible across the entire surface of the CPU. Piece of paper thin. Putting a glob in the middle and then tightening things down isn't going to help one bit.
