How does it run for temps? Now that our heat wave is a bit over and I now have normal room temps in my place. I've got my w/c setup running at 32 degrees idle and 36 under load :) Very pleasing results for sure. Have you tried to OC your vid card with that w/c?

:ph34r: nice waterblock, but with all that aluminum over the core, you think there should be water there. I have the koolance waterblock: http://koolance.com/products/product.html?code=200G-A1 and it has water over the entire top. It has a copper bottom that gives water over the entire copper plate. The design is also very nice. In a nice room temp, my chip will get to 28-29 idle and 33-34 load. Its a ver nice waterblock, i would recommend it to everyone, but what a b**** to get the hoses on the thing. :ph34r: Now i just need to get the chiset waterblock coolers for my vid and mobo.

thats about my temps, 23*C room temps, and cpu gets 28 idle and 35 load, and thermal paste hasnt broken in yet. My video card getes 33 idle and 38 load.

 

The reason i wanted the X-aqua was specificly because of the design. Puts the fresh, cold water directly on the center of the block, where cooling is needed most. Then the warmer water goes to the outside where cooling isnt as necessary.

Seems fairly low for the GPU temps no? I've never really done any modding for the videocard mainly because I screwed up my 9700 pro doing it once. I've been kind of leary about doing it ever since. So I'm not sure what is considered a good temp for a Ti4600.

for most stock coolers, you can see temps as high as 60*C! But most run about 45-50* max. Putting a copper cooler can drop down by about 5*. Lapping the GPU of the card can put you at about another 5*. With all my mods (copper cooler, etc) the highest temp i ever got was 43.5. Now that my Ceramique has set in pretty well, my MAX temp on my video card is 36*.

 

Now just remember, all my fans are SILENT. They run about 1800 RPM, all 80mm. The loudest thing in my computer is the crap power supply (prolly sell soon, its not loud, but i want stealth PC.)
