Mike, if you've made that many visits, you must be thinking about water cooling.

ALMOST 4000 VIEWS!! Now, a small update, I made my rig into two separate loops, gpus and cpu, it has a 480 and 120 rads for the gpu's and then it has one 360 for the cpu. Temps went down by 4-6degrees, but what I noticed is the gunk in my reservoir, lots of white mush everywhere. So stripped it all, and noticed the tubing inside disolved, turns out the tubing was packed and stored in crates,this picked up junk that hardened over time, it disolved with the intense heat. So as a small tip, drain your rigs every 4-6months just to get old liquid out, I replaced the liquid with 10:1l ratio distilled water and antifreese, and it works great. This was 3weeks ago, last noght I stripped it again,and went back to single loop,temps rose by 2degrees,but I like the look more. Also a great tip, if your tubing is to tight, as in, you cut it "perfectly" so it is very strait and just reaches both side, please redo them. Cause they will leak. I noticed after intense gaming the tubing gets so hot,it expandes, and with the constant cool water going in,it streches allot and shrinks,the tight seal fitting cant let go,so it cracks and bing bang a leak! So leave yourself a bit of strech room.

I think it's around that time where I begin to extend/improve my setup.

I doubt I'll ever put money into waterblocks for the 6950 twins; one, because they'd both require different blocks, and two, because I don't even how long it'll be until I upgrade to a 670 or whatever.

Perhaps a new CPU block, new fans and some MX-4.

Thanx very much, I appreciate it. And yeah things are great, I was bussy with admision exams and bike riding, so pc just gathered dust. But 2 weeks ago I was done with tests so can now get back to it all. PC is still running smoothly even with all the swaps and changes, at least every time I swap out tubes I get easier ways to install them or neater way lol. Hope alls still good with you and your watercooled rig.


Terronium- It all depends on what you want yourself, I had 50/50 people saying yes and no to watercooling, in the end I did it for myself, and will never go back, I love the silence and low temps. Plus it looks awesome lol.
