The vanquisher keeps my temps between 30-32 idle and around 45 tops on load depending on temps in my apartment.

Might be a cheap heatsink but it does the job for now

That blue tubing looks AMAZING, and your rig is very clean. Now where did you say you lived....Might have to uh, drop by. If your PC goes missing it wasn't me.
In my opinion you don't mention chubby and ask the man the where he lives in next sentence, thats just slightly on the side of disturbing, .

It's ok- computers make me chubby too- but mostly in a literal way- I should exersize more.

Babrbarossa, is that an EK multioption res in your box? How do you like it? I've got one in my cart at NCIX right now, trying to decide whether to hit the buy button.

Which one do you have in your cart? I think that the 100 is a little small (110ml) but the 250 is too big- it's 25cm tall so why cramp the case for no distinct benefit?

In my opinion, I think that the 150 or 200 are good sizes- the model number is essentially the height in mm and the approximate volume in ml.

As for the price, I haven't used a revision two mcres, but it's a definite yes over the revision one. The mounting for the EK is much simpler, but not awkward or obtrusive. I find that despite having multiple mounting options, the mcres always seems to stick out in the way, and crazy tubing bends are necessary. I like having a little extra volume than the mcres provides too.

If budget it tight, however, there is nothing wrong with the mcres- it does filter out air bubbles very well.

I have the 250 in my cart. It's long, but there's lots of room in my Cosmos. The only other one NCIX has is the 100, which I think is too small. I was thinking of a mount placement similar to yours.

I currently have an MC-Res Rev 1, which works just fine, but I agree on the mounting issues.

I'm going to give it a go. If it turns out to be way too long, I'll do something else. Or shorten it with a bandsaw.

Eyo Babr.. very nice, clean, sexy build :P..

May I ask if you may.. what tubing is that you're using.. Lemme guess, either it is feser one or danger den stuff. You can't see through primochill like that. UV effect is also amazing!..
