    Hey Rotor!!, need your Watercooling expert advise

    ok here is my deal:
    I have gotten my water cooling settup nearly compleat, but no matter what I do I cant keep my water temps under 30.c.. My resivor is almost 2gal, no matter how big of rad I use it still dosnt help.. I back to using my 5x5in rad cuz it had the biggest pipe in it (3/8) with a 6 row core.. my water temps top out at 34.c after hours of gaming.. Oddly enough this rad dose the best! i have a 12x12 in rad with 1/4in pipe and my water temps were 4.c higher.. Right now my cpu temp is -5.c, it will drop to -15.c at idle after about 20min.. What I need to know is, how much of a drop in water temp can I expect it I goto a 4x4x4 resivor, and use a 72w pelt an water block to chill the water?? got any experience in this are?? or do you think I'd be better off with a larger resivor and no peltier.. If chilling the water is a way to go do you know where I can get a good water block for this set up?? I have tried to build my own out of a ss7 HS and plexi-glass but leaks were a problem so I'd feel safer with something else since I plan to mount everything inside my full tower case.. hope you got some answers, cuz I'm stuck @ 900 @ 1.85v for now, because if i go above that the water temps jump to 45.c in 20min!! this is not acceptable... Thanks...

    do you have some pictures of your rad configuration?.....
    sounds like you are having a ventilation problem, how is your fans mounted onto your rads, remember that a radiator, in order to work well, needs to get the air forced through it, not just over it.....

    if you have fans that is a bit smaller than the rad, lift them about 2" from it, then make a housing for them so that they will force the air through the maximum surface area of the rad, the secret is, surface area, when it comes to rads.
    Have it so that all the air moved by the fans are forced through the rad, that way you will have max efficiency.

    the smaller diameter pipes is not a bad thing, if those rads are bigger in exposed area, they are bound to work a lot better...
