Why not just get a XP-120 w/ 92mm Fan and do just as good if not better for a lot less money.

It would cool better than a low end kit, but a high end water kit would probably work a bit better.

yeah but if i say with air would the xp-120 better then this http://www.thermaltake.com/coo...p002...silentTower.htm' ">http://www.thermaltake.com/coo...l-p0025silentTower.htm

i would love to stay air cooled since i have a great big thermaltake tower, but water cooled you can get lower temps, they both have pros and cons.

yeah I know what you mean. Especially if you broke ur motherboard and or processor thats about 200 bucks down the drain. Ironically Overclocking is supposed to SAVE people money. LOL

Why don't you want DD?

It has 1/2" ID (Inner Diametre) fittings, meaning it's got better water flow!

I very much doubt you'll be able to do any serious OCing with cheap kits like Tt.

Nice reservoir

I'm going to leak test mine for 24 hours inside my case. It's too much messing around to do it outside the case.

Are you using Steam Distilled water?

Obviously that isn't the resivoir I'm going to be using hehe. It's a submersible pump so I had to put it in something.

Yea, it's distilled water with a little bit of auto anti-freeze in it to keep away corrosion.

Here' ">http://www.overclockers.com/tips85/ is a link to exactly what I'm doing for a resivoir.

Sheeit man, you could of got something nicer looking! Lol

That's the one I've got... ' ">http://www.dangerden.com/image.../ddbay/single_800w.jpg

Hmm... What sort of Auto anti-freeze you using? You need to use something that has a lower viscosity than water really, cause if it's higher then it'll slow your water flow down which will make your temps rise!

Well you won't see any of that stuff because it will be in a seperate case which will sit under the computer case.

And I want to get some of that Water Wetter for the final install. Right now that is just plain cheap [content edited] anti-freeze.

Ahh... Ok.

Make sure you flush your system though.

I've got Water Wetter. 10ml cost me £8.50!!!

How come your putting it in another case?

Lol, You would've been better not putting in any at all!

My case is small and very full. Plus I don't want the radiator inside. I want air straight from the room going thru it and and then right back out again, not across any other components.

What sort of case you got?

I've got a Tt Tsunami Dream... I've got two 120mm radiators, Asetek CPU Antartica block, DD reservoir 5 1/4", DD NV 6800 block and a Hydor L30 pump.
I had to do a lot of modifying to get it all in and there's not really a lot of room (Now I wish I had of bought a Xaser case) but I've got it all in. I'm just waiting for the Steam distilled water which I had to order that cost me £15!

It should be good though, it looks pretty good.
