SOB!! I am pissed!!!! I most likely will sell this heat sink and go with something else as I am building this over time I can't fire it up as of yet anyway.

Who here is looking for a brand new used Zalman 9700? Again with a even bigger more furious


Shit.......... Shit shit shit shit shit shit shit..... etc.
Listen, mate. I told you, use the included exhaust duct to catch the hot air from your processor:


Just mount it such that the hood reaches overtop your CPU heatsink. Reverse the CPU heatsink to exhaust upwards into the duct and have the rear chassis fan shoot outwards. Done.

Wow Wilson you have really out did yourself. I am quite amazed at the passion some people have towards this stuff and Wilson just proved that. I thank you very much.

I don't think I will be using the Zalman 9700 now as I really want the air flow to be correct in the case.


Amon, thanks for suggesting the duct but I should mention the the duct is side mounted it isn't atop the processor.

Side mounted? I thought the duct was an attachment to the rear exhaust fan.

Ok... I need to take a break from this... Of course I can unscrew it and position the duct above the heat sink.

Sorry my brain is baked (and I don't even smoke weed)

I have made up my mind to go liquid. I have been looking into different configurations and find I am liking this Corsair COOL Watercooling

I found Eglobal sells the kits for $233. Eglobal Computers: Great Online Computer Store, Great Price, Great Service

The way I am looking at this now is I am into it with quite a bit of cash and it is a higher end system I might as well go liquid. This kit gets good reviews and I can't see any issues installing the Corsair COOL into my V2000.

At least I have my fingers crossed.

Heh.... you're going to give Miso fits if you pick up a "kit" WC.... :)

In all honesty, that kit has been around quite a while, and even if it was a top performer back when it was first released, it's more than likely been eclipsed by more current gear.

Throwing a "Rad Box" and water additive (bottom of page in recommended additions) onto this set http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=NCIX will get you everything you need for very close to the same price as the corsair kit you were looking at.

This kit here http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Swiftech would probably offer the same/better performance as the corsair at a much lower price.

There are other kits there as well which will bring your price down substantially yet provide the same or better performance over the corsair kit.

The 240 kit from NCIX looks very promising, and I would buy it over the Swiftech Premium kit anyday (240 rad vs. 120 rad). My little rig that could is using that Swiftech kit, since I bought it for 140$ @ NCIX...

The Swiftech kit is a high performer, even with the 120mm rad. I can't imagine the overkill with the NCIX 240mm rad... Take notice that the Swiftech kit reservoir as been changed to the latest Micro-Res (same as the NCIX 240 kit), not the res-pump combo that is shown in the picture.

Here's my little rig that could with the Swiftech Premium kit.

What do you mean by this Wilson? "Heh.... you're going to give Miso fits if you pick up a "kit" WC.... :)"

I was looking at the Swiftech H20-120 Premium but found that it looks flimsy in comparision to the Corsair COOL.

I like how the reservoir is incorporated into a drive bay. Very tidy.

With my new decision to spend more money . I have a ton of research to do $250 is the max I can spend.

BTW after I have my new system together I will be putting my current system up for sale. I will be pulling out the 8800GTX and replacing it with the X800GTO flashed X850 and will pull the x-fi replacing it with a Audigy 2
But that will be a while yet.
