My System Specs

Default New Question!!!Rebuilt Water System all done*Pix*

New Question is it better to have your push pull setup pull air from outside or push the hot air out of your case? just trying to get my temps a little better:)




So Due to the fact my Crappy Thermaltake Big Water 760i Seized up I had to rebuild my system.
So I went with the following.

System Specs
FX 8150 AMD 8 Core
4x2GB Patriot DDR3 2000
Asus Crosshair V Formula Board
Asus CUII 6970 2GB DDR5
2x120GB Raid Striped OCZ Sata SSD's not sure model just newest and cheap but fast
2TB WD Black Backup drive
N13 Wireless card Asus
thermaltake chaser mk-1 Case
Thermatake 850watt PSU
LG Burner

Cooling system
2x240mm Fans Stock ones
2x120mm Noctua Fans on Rad
2x120mm Ultra Thin fans (found them in my storage and they were never used)

Water Cooling parts
Swiftech MCP350 Pump
EK Dual 120mm Rad setup in push pull
EK Multi inlet/outlet Rez tube
Thermaltake CPU Block*worked great for the last build so stuck with it*
Rasa GPU cooler
Swiftech BGA Memory Ramsinks Cut down to fit around piping
Lots and lots and lots of Thick 3/8 id Tubing
Used very nice Stainless for Polyurethane Airline clamps

System is built and running leak tests for the next few hours.
after that is done I will post how the temps are on here and OC it as much as possible.

But all and all this build is done, my New LGA2011 build starts on the 30th with 2 7970.

So I will either keep this system as a AMD toy and use it while I do the other build or Maybe its time to sell it and put all my money into the intel build.

Thanks and enjoy the pix and advice would be great this is my first water build without a watercooler kit just buying parts and throwing them in.

Yea the kit i ordered from Dazmode comes with white tubing too which is a real downer to me so i ordered some UV Blue, I'll save the white for extra or i'm thinking of playing around with some liquid chillers so i could use it with that or something

Feed your radiator fresh air from the outside. While it's more complicated than that, it should produce lower temps.

Holy Crap you guys were bang on and now my leg has air conditioning :P
I moved all fans to push pull and moved the other big 240 to the top.
All the rad fans and top fans pull/push into the into the case now CPU and GPU dropped 10C :O from 40 on CPU under load to 27-30 and from 47 on load on GPU to 32-35.

Thanks for the help everyone. now anyone know where to get 2 240mm fans for the front and side :P
