Sure is a very nicely made station, made me wonder why you need 3 rads/3 pump setup.. I know your cooling a lot, but still.. Maybe sell those pa120's and get quad feser rad or one of those monstas ..

On the other hand a hell of a setup there for hell of a guy who knows the insides and outs of water cooling flawlessly.. :)

The board is qualified for a circus at this point. It's not an 'air' sound, it's more of a rushing water sound. I'm pretty sure it's just a result of having three fairly strong pumps in series, aiming into an impingement-type waterblock. I'll probably toss a pump later on, or maybe just convert them back to MCP350's, but I'm hoping to do some CPU block testing this summer, and I'm curious how some of the blocks respond to higher flowrates.

Makes sense, and good luck testing those blocks.. You could becomes HWC's water cooling stuff reviewer.. I'm sure lots of people will appreciate and view your results..

If it's a fully sealed loop, it should not make any noise at all. The pressure and flow those pumps generate will no cause the cavitation phenomenon to occur (unless you're using some sort of super duper compression jet nozzle, in which case its still unlikely). Stuck air bubble, period.

Bloody nice, but completely pointless build unless you're getting into benching as a hobby :) In which case, i don't believe i've seen you on XS...

Lots of nice machines here, but no Banchetto.

Default Banchetto

I've been looking through all the pics, lots of great work, but I have yet to see a Banchetto 101, so I will post mine.

They work really well, core temps idle are 25c and full load 31c

Ambient temps are about 35c, they were alot higher till I added the corsair memory fan there.

Love how you tucked in the Micro-res there. With the right cable management, that bench sure cleans up beautifully.
