I will take care of that...

Just ordered :D

Swiftech MCW6500 TEC :p
Meanwell 320w PSU for TEC
Lian Li G70 Case
Thermochill 120.3 Radiator
Swiftech MCP655 pump
Swiftech MCRES Reservoir
10ft Tygon Tubing

My current pump just died, but even when it was working my temps sucked horribly. Over 60c on load. I was going to go phase... but I decided against it at the last minute.

Definitely you will get better temps with phase, but I wanted something that could fit entirely into the case. My original plan was to try to cram a phase into a PC75, but after much research, it looks like its going to be harder than planned.

I am taking the baby steps towards phase :D I am somewhat concerned with this TEC and a Quad Core though... might be an issue. Don't play on going Quad Core until 45nm's though.

There are alternatives. Check these guys out.

Here is what about $1000 gets you.

Yea, that is the system that Jinu makes, I like the look of the PC75/G7 cases... oh well, hope this does good, at around 1.6v hoping for 20-30c. Lower voltage will get the temps into the negative range.

It'll be interesting to see how effective that TEC block is. I've seen a few people who have ordered it but no testing results yet. I just don't know that much about them, to be honest, but from the little I've read they seem to work really well?

But a new pump and that Thermochill will definitely help a lot, for starters. And the G70's are really nice, as I well know. :)

Good luck, man!

Thanks man, yes, the TEC is effective, until you start dumping alot of voltage, they are only good up to a certain heat dump, then they start to become uneffective...

for instance, see this pic :)

jAkUp, dude I have been toying with the idea of water cooling for 2 years now. Please take alot of pictures of your install, I am really want to see your setup. I have been looking at this case for a while now for a water cooling setup.

QFT. It looks like it weighs a lot though, but that is probably a good thing. I think everyone is going to be watching to see how it performs. How much is that setup going to run you?

Oh yea, btw... If you have a fever, I'm pretty sure the only prescription is MORE COWBELL!! :D

I'm very interested in the idea of Watercooling, mainly coz of the insane temps during aussie summer. I'm a bit apprehensive though, because water + electronics generally don't mix. Any decent performing Watercooling setups out there which are good for noobs like me?

there are cooling liquids that can spill and not damage your electronics. water cooling isn't as hard as it seems, my very first computer that i built, i put water cooling in.... it was a pain in the ass i guess but nothing too hard.

It's just so damn annoying that i have to wait 6 months to overclock. Temps are currently:

CPU - 51c
MB - 61c
GPU - 77c

And that's not under load

That's just too high. What cooler you have now?

All stock atm, my system is like 3 weeks old.

I would have to agree with this, however it does take quite a bit of work and studying before you buy. It took me about 2 months reading and asking questions all together - but I work 40hr/week and go to school as well.

I am running my very first water rig right now and I love it :)

I hate phase and TEC, it's too messy of an option more so if you sell the parts at a later date.

Well, if experience is anything, I found that phase was as easy, if not easier, than installing a watercooling loop for the CPU. I am not sure what you mean about "messy".

How much was the Swiftech jAkUp? I'm also interested to see your temps.

How do you clear out the socket of thermal paste?

Hey Jakup step up your board to the EVGA H2O nForce 680i :D

About $150 or so... got some more stuff today :D The real stuff doesn't come until Wendesday though :headexplode:
