Heh, coolest thing about WC over air is the load to idle delta.

Flash up a temp graph program like speedfan and watch how fast your temps drop when you stop the load.... :)

What is this leak testing you speak of? I leak test by fire. Assemble it and fire it up. Looks good.

On a happy note.....

My main rig is now merrily doing a 32M superpi and initial temps (not burnt in yet) are maxing out @ 41c with the same OC as before.

Heh.... maybe I'll get a chance to test out the "you've gotta beat it up before it'll really OC" theory and see if I can get a better OC out of it...... :)

(Sucks to be running a PCI vid card though..... :) ).

I see what you are sayin' I just ran orthos and when I stopped the temps dropped pretty much 1 degree a sec or more. Very nice.

Looks great, how are your temps so far compared to what you had with air?
