Hi Lowboy!,

Your rig is interesting and is a very good assemblage! Congratulations!

As i'm on water with a modded out of production Koolance system, i'm interested in temperatures...Could you post some tests results with idle, load and of course the ambient temperature?!?!

Thanks in advance! ;)

Coool! Is that long vertical tube for fill ups ?

I always wondered what the hell was that T line fill up thing like. You just put water in it and thats all?

 

I have the swiftech no-reservoir U turn valves thing (modified for less restriction/no 90º turns), and it was really dificult to remove the air bubbles, specially since the BIX2 radiator is nasty about keeping bubbles in the vertical position. After 3 attempts to remove the bubbles normally I took the BIX2 out from where it is hold and moving it around to horizontal position took care of the problem. Temperatures are 2º C lower now, so it had lots of air... arghhh :mad:

 

Maybe I will use a T connector and fill port like yours on my other system.

Lookin good! What coolant are you using, is that a Pentosin mixture? Blue looks so much beter than the pond scum green of HydrX...

 

Nice that the Aurora has the twin fans in the back so you don't have to use a radbox, doesn't look quite as awkward as my PA120.3 shrouded one does.
