Hi, I'm going to go to water cooling soon and I'm almost positive that I'm going to get this one. It got the editors choice award in every review I have read on it. Just wondering if anyone has it.

Stix could you tell me what temps you're getting. I wan't this unit mostly because its 21db at its loudest. My mobo will show my temps in the high 50s and low 60s. I had it oced at one point so it was a 2500+ running at 3200+ speeds. Something was going wrong because when oced it would randomly reboot while I was playing a game...so I stopped. I'm using a vortex tornado 12 currently with as5.

Whoo.....17*C under load? Thats very impressive. I might actually get one, they are relatively cheap for a watercooling kit.

Its a resevoir system isnt it, not some irritating Fill and Bleed system?

I think I like that, It looks a lot simpler than all the others. I would still be scared to put it in though.

I like it too, except for one thing. That fan on it is a sleeve bearing. But that's a really quick fix...lol.

Trust the Silk guy on that note. He has a Betty Croker ducting mod . Which worryingly enough inspired me to do my own Pringles duct mod.

Everyone should have some food container or another in their PC's. Its more stylish than having an Apple Mac you know!

Be careful with bumps, you're not supposed to do them unless it's been 24hrs.

That said, the Aquarius will probably funtion better (copper radiator).

Look at the specs on both, they'll tell you how many watts it can dissipate.

It says internal but you can mount the radiator with the 120mm fan externally
