    Nice,yeah I will recieve the rest of the parts according to them by the 22nd of March, so it will then be a month later. But atleast I will get it. Trying to get Water Cooling stuf in South-Africa is a mission!
    It's not too hard to get things over here in Australia, but they cost a little more.

    It can be a right pain in the behind to get things in New Zealand, and the cost difference in some items is just stupid.

    I've found its best not to buy local. Too expensive.

    On another note, I've inherited some bits and bobs for water cooling. So have decided to do a water cooled build for my next PC project.
    So firstly need some advice re: direction and route...
    Does it matter which way the flow goes? And what is the efficient way of going to the components? Pump -> Rad -> CPU -> GPU -> Reservoir?

    The pump I was given looks to be one from a fishtank, thus rated at 230vAC. The pump and res will have to be external.

    One of the blocks looks a bit suss too. So also considering machining up a new one for the vga card (Palit GeForce 9500GT)
    Unfortunately I cant find a decent cross-section of a block, so would anyone know if these are generally straight through, or if there are actually routed channels/fins inside?

    Yeah, it turned out the GPU fan was the noisiest. But changing the CPU fan definitely made things quieter too. Used the NF-P12 PWM, and it runs at 1275 RPM or so (compared to 1900+ for the original). Is much quieter, and the temps are unchanged. Must say, am finding the Nocs all they are said to be. All but CPU fan running with the lowest speed adapters, and still maintaining the previous temps (although all 4 Tri-cools were also set to low). A Guy
    Exact same that I have on my H-80 rad, they are great and quiet.
    I run them on high and can't hear them due to my GPU fan, have looked for a quiet GPU cooler, haven't found one here yet.

    2011, won't get much gain for price to performance ratio for gaming. 1155 is cheaper, and more effective for me in my case. I'm buying decently into 1155. I'll be dropping an ivy into my board once they hit and it'll support all my monitors.
    The only real advantage gaming wise of the 2011 socket is if your running multi GPU setups. You get the full PCI-E lanes.

    Asoon as i am able to make up my mind,i will be running them on a fan controler,so the rpm and noise will be controlled so to speak.
    Fan controllers are definitely a great compromise. Just make you sure grab one that can handle high wattages. Some can only handle 7w per channel, so if you have a high RPM fan it won't be enough to run them at full tilt.

    Others, (like my Rheobus for example) can handle up to 30w per channel which is enough to power the highest RPM fans. It also has the added bonus of being able to run two fans off one channel if need be.

    My current case has 3 140mm Gelid UV fans that are quiet audible at full speed. But when I want quiet, a quick turn down and the whole machine is almost inaudible. It's a better alternative than permanent resistors.

    Looks good, don't have Newegg here, I'm one time zone (N)W of you, shipping is a killer.
    Have to settle for what's available locally.
    Have a mate that comes from the US at least once a year, He brings me cool/cheap stuff

    Well I know that it has to be reservoir then pump, so that the water/liquid flows with gravity down into the pump, then its radiator, and then block(cpu or gpu) then back to reservoir. This is for a single loop, obviously when adding a second card with a block, it will be after the first block and before the reservoir again. When looking for a vga block make shore you get one with standard 3/4 fittings, these are most commonly used,so finding barbs for them and so on will be easy. And a universal vga block will be best in long run, cause it can fit a new gfx card when you upgrade, but these usually only cool the core, but if the card has heatsinks on the rest,then adding a fan to blow over it will solve the problem, and you can buy heatsinks for vga's because of this. http://www.koolance.com/technical/gp...le_spacing.php

    I don't know if you know this,sorry if you do, but when you plan your loop, the length of the tubing is kind of important, when too long (making a rolercoaster out of it), the liquid looses its cooling before reaching the items(not allot,but enough for around 2-4 degrees) The best way is to have the tubes reach each component with about an inc to spear, so it doesn't stretch,but is still short. The problem with this is draining,cleaning and adding new components to the loop. Cause the short tubes makes it dificalt. And as a general note. It is a rad for a block ie: One 120mm radiator for one Cpu block. or Gpu block. For the newer gpu's it shifted towards a 240mm(120x2) radiator per cpu/gpu block. But you can still get away with the normal 1 on 1 when not overclocking.

    Getting items LOCALLY is not possable, but I am only refering to Watercooling Items or "luxury it" ie: some full tower gaming chassis, rare coolers or some latest product,which are just ridiculously priced. However, I order my normal stuff (motherboard,gpu ect.)from an online store,that ships via UK and USA. And strangely enough they are cheaper then local stores, and its the only place I could find the wc items.

    ello folks
    i onlly got around to starting movin stuff into my new case last night. nearly done tho. this is my first case with proppa cable management and i dunno which is more of a head ache lol. tryin to get cables out the way in a normal case or tryin to get the cables in the right place so the side fits on. tis a bloody nightmare lol.
    im happy with the case tho it looks loads better. BUT! i think the cabling could be a bit better. il get some pics up laters

    Here are two quick pics of my new hardrive. I replaced a 1TB hd for a 120gb SSD...I know that makes no sense, but it's a allot faster and I got it for a very good price. Anyway, here are some pics.
