    Do you have room for a dual bay res? A dual bay res with 1 or 2 D5 pumps provides great flow and is quiet. A single pump can handle a 2-3 block loop, if you plan on adding more items like flow meters, MB block, multiple rads, 2 pumps adds to the flow rate and offers redundancy.

    A good loop is very quiet and keeps temps very low.

    Unfortunately no, i do not have the dual bay free (needed). Only one Bay 5,25".

    I know D5 Pumps series are quite powerful one but are mainly for High-Flow and multiple loop.

    XSPC does make some Towers including D5 pump: D5 Photon 170 Reservoir/Pump Combo, interesting concept!

    I saw also that those DDC pumps (laing, swiftech) had been improved quite well since a year and now are with options like PWM and can handle up to 1000L/hour for a Power consumption of 18W. The PWM is helped by another 4pin Molex to provide enough current on 12V.

    Also Some single Res Bay system do provide ability installing two DDC pumps.

    Might go something between 800L/h to 1000L/h, it will be far enough to provide a least a second 120mm radiator and even a flow meter with pin sensor!!

    Thanks for the input!:)

    You could always try an all in one water cooler as your 1st attempt.

    Received today the Water Block Silver Nickel Plated/Acetal...Quite heavy stuff, well protected in box and the bundle is completed with Tim & all the necessary mounting screws. No backplate inside provided. I Got it also today and is heavy duty. Nice Black & Chromium look!

    The Nickel plated is thick and have very very slight tendency to be embossed on the out sides most because the inner surface machined have dig the copper underneath in a square design, so the Nickel Plated have to fill the gap on CPU side. You can see the lines slightly broken, all at the same place, both vertical & horizontal. Shouldn't let an air bubbles (i think) at that place, the tim might fill it.

    I talk about way more than a half of half one millimeter to fill, so its very thin but still visible to eyes!!! :)

    Doesn't looks too bad to me...

    Is it really required? I work with IBM Power servers where each CPU has TDP of about 250W and are they are not liquid cooled. They are in rooms with AC but that is all.

    EDIT - yours looks better though - I was just curious if heat really mattered....

    Why not?

    Its a solution and a way of cooling, as good as others might prefer Air cooler!

    Do not have AC here and enjoy time to time over clocking my chip. I'm not in a corporate environment, nor have a server, that's for me joy and i'm working actually to pay it!!

    Its like me asking the same to the person i'm working to...

    Look around those guys having Rigs...half of them do have Watercooling solutions and enjoy their results.

    No reason at all - only curious really. Looks better certainly.

    No worries, on the point of view of a professional corporation i can understand its no investment, a waste of money against profits.

    I've swear many years ago not making any misplaced remarks to my girlfriend that could end-up a total war!

    Best not to say anything really - something I could learn :)

    My laptop runs hot (thus the question) but isn't relevant to your thread so I'll not go on about it. Please excuse me.
