Will do of course. Im just waiting on the guys repsonse for a trade. (Getting the hard part, the tank)

Here is my current setup that you can also find out more about in my signature:
Although not as snazzy as you guy's custom jobs I like my Corsair H50 as it's super quiet.
Am I seeing this right that your CPU is being cooled by 120 and 240 rad?
Yeah, originally it was suppose to be all an inside water cooling loop, but turns out that my case sucks and would not fit either of the rads. :( You know I wanted to have the 120 as the back exhaust, and then 240 for the top two exhaust and have a neat closed loop, but it did not work out so I ended up doing it this way. Still get very nice results. I get 65C max with the 2600K at 4.8GHz. The nice thing about it is that it is completely quiet, and even during gaming the two GTX 580s stay quiet too, so when they case is closed up with acoustic foam all around, it's a very nice quiet gaming system. :)
Here is my simple but effective budget setup.
Nice PP, what Rad do you have cooling that CPU?
Swifty 240 with the built in res. Gets the job done and keeps my CPU around 50c when OCed to 4.3ghz. Just wish I had a better case so I didn't have to run my tubes that way. This pump is junk too but can't complain.
That's a really nice little setup you got going on PP!
Thats folding temp. Don't forget, I have 2 5k btu window units keeping my room cold at all times. My Fermi's don't go over 65c either. (Don't know if I ever mentioned it here or not) Normal room temp is about 62c load.
oh, ok, that's pretty cool then. I don't have any AC or other cooling in my room. I just crank the window open. But I must admit, sometimes it get get quite hot in the room. About 30C or 86F. Even then the PC overclocked at 4.8GHz runs at around 70C, but when the room is nice and cool around 20C, it gets around 62C.
I think once you get your 2500K, you will be really rockin'. With these chips, it's not really the heat causing the problem, but the limitation of the chip.
Right now my limitation is RAM sadly. I can do 4.4 on water but my RAM fails at 2200mhz. Can't wait till I can get the 2500k though.
