Yeah I actually was at the dangerden website.. Man they got freakin CPU and GPU blocks that are like $120 by themselves! Things better give arctic like temps lol

I also happened across that fluid. Don't know if I want to get it at this time though although yeah, it'd be extremely nice to have a little more ease in my mind.

I'm gonna do a leak test though and hopefully none present themselves but, yeah......wonder if I should get that stuff?

Gonna check out this review you linked though cause I want some real world evaluation.

Thanks

to me its NOT CONDUCTIVE which is enough to sell me on it....its cheap insurance if ask me. When I eventually go to water I will be sure to go with a non conductive fluid b/c that is a MAJOR reason why I havent yet....with water there is absolutely no room for error.

Dang, definitely cool. You read the review of the dude just plugging a bare wire into the socket and throwing it in a tube of the stuff? lol

That's freakin insane.

Yeah, I just may have to splurge on it.....ahh decisions decisions..

If I splurge then, not only will it cost me $35 which will bring me that much further from the 6600GT, but they said it will bring up your temps just a little....although on the one you linked he said there was very little difference.


Hmmmm!! I just dont know!

Definitely would give me peace of mind though

Hmm, thermaltake kit comes with 500CC's of cooling fluid....if I found a correct conversion table I believe that comes to 17 ounces....

That MCT-5 nonconductive liquid is a 32ounce bottle...so that's like.....984CC's.....so dang I think it's definitely worth it.

Plus it IS $20.99 the 'FluidXP+' costs $34.99 which I'm not sure what the main differences are....

I think I'll be gettin it....I'll let you know if I go through with it

I would....I guess for starters you will just have to be extra extra extra extra carefull and make sure you leak test it for at least 12 hours.

Nubius have you gotten your big water in yet? How is it going?

Nope I was hopin for it to be here by saturday damnit, but that didn't happen. I expect it to be here monday or there will be hell to pay!

I'm thinking of getting some bigger tubing though, but indecisive about it, and considering what to make my own reservoir out of, things like that.

And now I kinda wished I had known more about water cooling, because up until recently I wasn't aware of simply piecing together your own system. It woulda wound up a little more expensive than the bigwater though. But they say 'powerful pump' for the bigwater and it only does 30gph whereas most liquid cooling setup pumps I see do 300! So thermaltake shoulda made it like 100gph or something

I need bards for my reservoir though if I make my own, and need to upgrade the tubing from 1/4" to 3/8" but then I'm wondering if that pump is good enough to handle the extra size tubing, the 2nd radiator things like that.

I want to build a box that'll house both radiators with a 3rd 120mm fan lookin something like this:



However, I don't know what exactly I could construct that housing out of yet. I don't exactly have any metal boxes lying around with those dimensions
