My first ever watercooling rig. Thanks to everyone in the XS forum who threw out some tips and provided replies when I had questions
After working through this project for about 2 weeks (part time worker and college scholar here ) I think I know now what not to do and what to do properly and in which order.
Maybe next time I'll go for a dual loop solution. I'm quite happy with my temps however, considering what I have. A 9800GX2 (hot little things ) and a Q6600 @ 3Ghz. Idle temps are mid 30's (celsius). Full load is mid 40s to low 50s. Just love how quiet the whole system is! Definitely much quieter then my previous set up in a Cosmos 1000
That last pic should interest those who are watercooling and have a CM HAF 932. Just take one of those 240mm fans and zip tie it on the outside on top to act as a pull fan on your radiator if you have it mounted inside. As soon as I did that, my temps dropped by a couple degrees going from just a push to a push+pull dual rad on top .
