I doubt you are going to get colder than room temp with normal heatsinks and air.... But meh... Cool enough... Considering my idle temp is probably twice what you guys consider safe...

oh sorry perhaps i should have rephrased that. i meant my maximum temp is around about 38-40 degrees. no way does my cpu go below ambient temp. but i am also clocked higher.

Default Aqua Bay

Just purchaced an Thermaltake Aquabay for it and hope the extra coolent storage will help. The preinstalled holding tank is a little small. Will be nice to have a flow indicator also. May get a 1/2" pump and tee it into the two cooling units to up my flow. I love experimenting!
