Re: Critique Water Loop

Drive bay sound like a good idea to get to the CPU first as I will only have one or two opticals at most, I previously recall you saying it's best to have the pump at the lowest point for natural...

Re: $400-500 upgrade

Yeah thanks for confirming that for me, it seems dual or single high speed cores still influence much more for now anyway.
