babrbarossa, once again, I have to tell you that you are a genius. Really good idea and very well made. If I was needed to do this I would just put the rad on the case8-) I'm full of idea. Great job again carry one my friend!!!

Ask for more.

Thanks Guys- I figured that a low profile rad might fit inside there (rather snugly) but we were working with a pretty beefy rad.

If you're still getting 70C under orthos on a 45nm dual, you either are running obscene voltages, or there is an issue with the watercooling loop. Are you confident in the pump handling the total pressure drop of the system at a decent flow rate? What are your water temps in and out of the rads? If your rad leaving temp is low maybe you just need more flow? Maybe the CPU needs to be lapped?
PS. I'm getting peak temps of low 70's @ 3.8Ghz with my Q9450 with about 1.36vcore. Under OCCT linpack it goes up to around 80C. This is using a TRUE air cooler, I get about the same temps using my Vendetta II.
With your watercooling loop you should be much lower than me and my air cooled quad.

The temperatures were my fault; I had neglected to take the plastic protector off the CPU block. After taking it off, I get 29 degree idles and 43 degree loads at 4.05 GHz, with medium-speed Scythe S-Flex fans. I could use faster fans to get even lower temps, but I like the quiet.
