Oh man does it work well! I got the Swiftech H20-120 premium kit.

No pics ATM because my digicam is getting fixed.

But I can post temps. (Coretemp)

Zalman 9500:

Idle: 38c
Load: 57c

Water Cooling:

Idle: 28c
Load: 38c

3.15ghz @ 1.44v 47c load. :D

Roadhog, are you using pure coolent? And what are you using blocks on the VGA's?

I use Danger Den which is simular to swiften. But i thought i would get much lower temps like 20 C to 25 C maybe but i get the same as you. MY SLI Gpu's are 43Idle 48 Load. For 2 7800GTX's is that mormal for 2 copper blocks 70 m pump with 1 1200mm push and 1 120 mm fan pull From the radiotor?

He's amazing isn't he?

Nice!

That is probably my next stop. I have a small water cooling setup, something to get my feet wet. Went back to air for right now, but I'd like to get that kit and plumb the whole pc. How much was the kit and where did you get it? I may get the BFG's with the 1/2" barbs and go that route.

I only have the cpu cooled at the moment. I will probably only cool the cpu and chipset in the long run.

Out of curiosity, how much did your watercooling setup cost you total?

$170 :D

Is that all new parts or did you get some parts used? For that much I just might have to get a loop.

How did you get the 2 chipset blocks tied in with the hosing and clamps. I fought with the A8N32 Deluxe with its 2 chipsets and was forced to get passive cooling instead of copper pipe due to fan hole where the radiator is couldn't use the auxilery fan for copper pipe.

Did you get yours as a kit or just get the pieces separatly? I ended up spending around 600 bucks for the pieces cuz of the gpu blocks but well worth it since my GPU's don't exceed 50C full load even with Gformes Screensaver.

I ONLY have the cpu cooled right now.. I plan to cool the chipset later.

You should have no problem cooling those chipsets when you go that direction. I tas the A8N32 thats hard to cool the chipsets cuz of where they are and running tubing as thick as swiften and danger den would be making it hard to pass coolant through.

LOL!
That is a very nice kit and easy to set up, Roadhog. I got something similar to that a while back, before Swiftech released the Apogee waterblock. Same reservoir/pump(MC-RES), same radbox and same size radiator, but with a different waterblock( can't remember what it was called). I have since swapped out all those components except for the radbox, and my watercooling setup has become a lot more complex.

im loving it. It was well worth ever penny and performs better than I imagined. :D

EDIT: Every once and a while I get a little splash sound from the res. I guess this is normal? It looks like its just the water in there splashing around and making the sound.

Could be air bubbles

no air bubbles, I was watching the tubes when it does it.

I think Bman is right. Once your loop is free of air, the sound should go away.
