Looking alot better yukikaze :toast: maybe some pics with light to see how you mounted the rads and stuff??
Ask, and you shall receive !

The top rad:




The front rad (It was really hard to get the camera positioned so you'd see something, the tubing connects to the top of the rad):




And here's the swapped fan grill, indeed much better:

Those rads are very crappy. It is a TT BigWater 745, after all (But it was damned cheap, and it was my practice run with WC...plus it actually does a pretty good job). The rads have copper piping and aluminum fins.

ah I see... hey if it does the job, then it does the job :D.

My experience is that fans matter more than rads anyways.

OK ive got more major problems! if loosing ALL my data wasn't enought, I called seagate today to setup an RMA and we got through the process of setting everything up until she took down my serial number. turns out this drive came in one of seagates external enclosures and since i dont have that the warranty is VOID. i was like WTF? i bought it internal. So the lady had me take a picture of the hard drive and email it to her. im still waiting on her response.

Not at all, as the person you bought it from should of told you they were pulled from enclosures.

I sincerely doubt its new aswell, get in touch with him and just return it to him and get you cash back.

Then just buy a brand new one.

Maxtor and seagate 7200 rpm 500gb drives are cheap as hell.

( like £35 quid here, and you don't pay same taxes so save 17.5% straight away ontop of that electronics tend to be a bit cheaper in general over in the US )

i might try to sweet talk my wife into letting me take the refund money and order two 500GB WB black drives and do raid 0 :)

Cant, the guy at seagate told me, once the company took the drive out of the enclosure then the warranty was VOID. they have a seal sticker on the enclosure. its a seagate free agent model like this one

i will never buy a maxtor again^^
i only experienced the worst of them, even if the drive i own is still alive.
-its baking its way to its own personal 60deg.
-its not very silent
-the SMART died after about 2 years
:laugh:
