It's a start Steve and a good one.
What's a XSPC?
Don't you have a better cooler than the Intel laying around?

Wow a transparent aluminum case.

I always thought that was a Trekkie fable.

I know, I know you wanted to be sure the hardware worked before installing it in the case.
I don't blame you a bit after your past experiences.

It's water cooling, as Google told me. XSPC - Performance PC WaterCooling

Steve you're going to have a blast learning to plumb this new rig up. You planning on CPU and GPU water cooling together?

The motherboard has an 8 pin and a 4 pin ATX connections. Bummer. I intend to only cool the CPU. At least for now. The GPU does not need it. It's idling at 31 right now. I haven't put it under stress, but the last 670 I had only reached 63 running Mard 3D 11 and Heaven. Alan, you may call it a blast, I hope you were being sarcastic. I may have to break the dremmel out. I hope to install the cooling in the case, test it, then put in the motherboard. This bay reservoir is causing much grief. XSPC is XSPC Raystorm RX360 Extreme Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ RX360 Radiator and Free Kill Coil! Hot item!! - FrozenCPU.com

Hope that answered all the questions.

You're going to be quite happy with your XSPC kit, trust me.

And the RX rad is going to net you some better temps than my RS. Looking great so far!

Steve,
I don't think your CPU will ever get above ambient with that rad ! The reservoir is problematic as in needing mods to slide into the case?

No mods needed to slide into the case, Alan, but it takes 2 5.25 bays, you would need to leave the bay above empty to get to it, and the bay above that has a fan in it from the rad. Now, that's a problem when you have only 4 bays. I don't use it much but you do need a DVD/CD player. Of course you cluld do several workarounds, but they require a lot of work for normal usage. I want one of the watercooling experts here ( Joey, I'm calling you) to tell me why I can't place the reservoir someplace else inside the case.

EDIT: Now that I am talking about the problem, I may have thought of a way to do it. But I would just rather place it somewhere else if that would be acceptable and wise. It may cause problems with how the wiring is run, but as usual, resolving one problem creates another.
