My case is an Antec Sonata. This is my first watercooling attempt and I'm on a tight budget. I went with the Maze-4 instead of the TDX because it was on sale. I can always add a GPU one later since the pump I bought should be enough.

Got any pics of the two radiators in yours?

Yeah, though you should have gone with the high flow CPU block...

I need to get some screws to fit the fan onto the inside of the case at the rear, hopefully I'll have them by Tuesday.
I was wanting to start leak testing today but I couldn't find any steam distilled water so I had to order it

what is the function of these wires?

QUOTE (cow8mynuts @ Nov 20 2004, 11:51 AM) 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.
I have a Thermaltake tower cooler (model 102 - same heatsink as the CL-P0025 but with custom fans) with dual stealth 92mm 1750 RPM fans and it still runs hot!

I have an ambient room temp of 37c any my machine is idle at 63c & I am using artic silver...
I am using a full tower case that have 6 extra fans in my case beside the CPU fans (2) antech pwr suppy (2) and videocard fan (1)... the case temp is 40c which is 3c above room temp.
Vent fans are 2 rear case fans, 1 side case fan, 2 hard drive fans, 1 northbridge fan...

I have tried with Cool n Quiet enabled and disabled.

The orignal AMD fan n heatsink would set the mobo temp alarm off on a hot day
I am certain it is reading the correct temp cause i have measured it with a fluke temp probe.

How to keep this beast cool?

I have been thinking of water cooling, but really how much does water cooling help when ur ambient temp is already so high?
Wouldnt the room heat make the radiator warm to begin with.. and once hot how to cool it down?

I work in a small office with no aircond and i really dont want a noisey box...
My system configeration is in my signature running at standard clock speeds

help anyone?

well i just bought the bigwater h20 kit im waiting for it to arrive, wow thats hot my cpu's idle temp is around 38c to 40c and load is 45c-50c
with the bigwater kit you can either place the rad inside the tower or outside, outside would be the best beacuse the outside air is much cooler, plus you can do some mods that can cool the rad off some more.

To be honest, I would be more inclined to put the radiator on the inside of your case at the front (Intake). Cause if you put it at the back, the fan will be sucking the air from inside the case! If it's at the front then it'll be sucking air from outside the case.

I have 2 water cooling kit's in mine . I got the aquariusII first and found that it did not perform the way I thought it would (for the CPU) then I went to fry's and was looking around and talked to there tech guy who sugjested the corsair Xtreme water cooling sytem , he said it is the best that there is for O/C and that the only other one would be the koolance one . so I got the corsair one over the koolance . is is soo great now I have the aquariusII cooling the GPU only and the Corsair for the CPU . this is the way to go if you ask me . all that danger den and stuff is ok but so hard to find in a store .
