Update:

Basically re-did the whole loop, installed the rad right side up. Mounted HDD's below to make room for tubing. Made a steel mounting plate for the apogee.

Load temp is 50C with a 1.45 vcore, its 5-7.5C lower than my true. The rad has 2 noctua p12's pulling. Much happier with the look of this loop. Will most likely add another mcr220 stacked, just have to find out if the temp dif. is worth the price.

Heres a pic of the new loop.

Looking good. I'd be surprised if that pump wasn't making some vibration noise, but that's nothing that couldn't be solved with a little foam, if necessary. Nothing wrong with a second radiator, but the gains from the stacked haven't been looking too promising with single fans. Maybe if you threw another bank of fans onto the second rad as well? Regardless, not crucial if you're only cooling the processor. If you ever put the video card under water, then the improvements would be more noticeable.

Huge improvement with looks! First cut was a bit ugly

Thanks for the comments!

You'd think the pump would be noisy, I've used some padded double sided tape and it actually isolates it really well. I can have the mcp655 wide open and its still very quiet. Been trying to get a higher OC, but my phenom II is really picky after 3.7 ghz, might just say screw it and stay there. It's probably a better price/performance decision than another rad.
