There is no problem with metal corrosion, because everything is copper/brass. The Brass T was from my local hardware store. They have lots of things to choose from, I love it. It was about $1.50!

Even the Swiftech triple could be considered overkill, unless you're running your fans extremely slow. I honestly wouldn't expect you to get much better temps with a PA120.3.

(P.S. Don't be shy, it's okay to start a new topic for these questions )

Overkill is fun, I have the equiv of a MCR320 and a PA120.3 in my loop atm, with 1 gpu and my mildly OCed cpu:).

Anyways, you really were not lying when you told me that the MCR120 in that config interferes with the GPU, I guess I am stuck with somewhat odd looking setup, at least until my res arrives. Btw, what configuration do you have for your top rad/Kaze bay? My bay(once installed) will serve as an exhaust, with my MCR220 running into the case for cooler air. Will prob be able to turn my fans way down, as my cpu idles high 20's, and loads at low 40's.


Nice rig, just gotta get rid of all that nasty blue :).

Haha, I like the Blue. I have the top fans on the MCR220 blowing out of the case. The front Kaze master is an intake, as is the middle fan with the MCR120. I have much more exhaust than intake, but it seems to work well enough anyway. I dont have much more options
