This has nothing to do with this thread...

We're talking about 2 low end water cooling kits, not an nvidia motherboard...

yea just listen to aspire and you'll be fine :]

btw, this is a perfect example of how low-end water-cooling setups are worse than air cooling lol

Well, Danger Den is no longer the king of water cooling.

For a good solid loop, I would recommend something along the lines of this.

Petra's Tech Shop

It is out of stock at the moment, but it would be worth the wait.

The thing is though, you really do get what you pay for.

I bought a loop similar to that one about 2 and a half years ago, and it's lasted me just fine since then.

Only thing I changed was a used cpu block which I scored for a good deal.

hahah..yeah...well it just puzzles me...the gigabyte cooler got my cpu cooler than the thermaltake..but if i add both rads i get to a similar temperature as the gigabyte used to be...hmmh
i discovered that the gigabyte coolant has 100ml more..might consider using it liquid for the whole loop..ill have to see, mixing both together doesnt seem like such a good idea :P

Mixing shouldn't do anything they are based on the same stuff.

Your problem could very well lie with the underpowered pump. When you add in that other radiator you really put a lot of restriction into the loop and I wouldn't be surprised if the pump was having trouble maintaining flow.
