    Remember this is a temp setup for the tech bench only.

    When I had two triple rads together, I found that it made little to no difference in the temps :(

    What will you be cooling with the three rads??

    I don't care for lowering the idle temps. With the multiple rads there is a very very small Tjunction between load and idle temps. It is cooling my Phenom and a pair of watercooled GTX470's. Before it was just cooling the Phenom and kept load temps under 40C with 1.57v applied to it which throws it into the 200w range.

    Crappy I have to be able to stuff a pair of D5's into it to make my loop work.

    Just for you

    I believe it... My CPU using a whopping 140w and I manage to keep it at around 43c at load on air cooling, though the A/C stays on.

    I need to upgrade to am3/am3+ soon. According to a PSU Calculator... if i were to OC mine to 3.7ghz, the most Tom's Hardware could get out of it, I'd be pushing 275w! well... if i had to use the voltage they used.

    The H70 is no better than a high end air cooler so I am not surprised either.

    Decided to get my desktop up and running after my move. Upon plugging everything in, the top fan sounded like it was out of sync or something weird...basically it was making a cyclic whir instead of a monotone hum. Anywho, went ahead and cleaned it up a bit, and while disassembling, went ahead and rerouted cables a little more cleanly. This case is nice and quiet, but isn't exactly a king of wire management but it is certainly in a prettier state then it was before.

    Yea, I definitely like it more now. Also replaced the bottom Thermaltake blue LED fan with a black CM one I picked up on a fire sale. Going to bed now...later

    That looks a hell of a lot better, and I knew she'd kick you out eventually.

    I'm looking at a Chiller just to see if it works well or not.. Hopefully I can pick one up cheap and then I can start to play around with things and see just how much further I can push my little i7 920 D0 :D

    Totally don't know what you're talking about.

    Congrats on "coming out" Mr. G8R. :)

    That was an upgrade from awhile back, just couldn't find my "fresh" 6970 pics, and used my old GTX465 pic. Good catch though!!

    Cold Cathodes are nice I still have a few lying around as well as some 12inch LED sunsticks which are 10x better than cold cathodes. Looks good man.

    It is interesting that I stole that picture from your Photobucket:
    "http://i403.photobucket.com/albums/pp112/erocker414/IMG_2541s.jpg"

    Hope it's okay to let the world know how you feel rocker :D
