On my overclock I get 12*c idle


Do you really keep your room at ~50 F?

 

Sorry dude! My bad. Typo 22*C

I thought that was a little low. :lol:

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

More progress, its coming slowly because of another case mod I am doing, but so far! I fit a MASSIVE 54MM Thick 360 Rad from Koolance and a Alpha Cool XP3 Lite Block all ran on 1/2 Tubing. I need to add a reservoir and mount the pump on the back (Koolance PMP-420, LOUD asf)

 

So far the plan is:

Rad -> CPU -> NorthBridge -> Motherboard Mosfets -> GPU1 -> GPU2 -> Rear Mounted Reservoir -> Rear Mounted Pump -> Rad Return

Got some decals made by a friend of mine using the old G5 logo and vinyl wrapped the internal stuff and a shroud to hide some unsightly cables

Also swapped the coolant from Mayhems X1 Blue To White and deleted the reservoir since the flow from the pump was sending bubbles through the res and back into the pump so I put a T-Fitting in there and hid it out of sight with a old fashioned tubing reservoir
