Well here's my latest creation:

Dual/independent loops with the CPU/Southbridge on 1 loop and the GPU/Northbridge on the other loop. Dedicated Thermochill PA 120.3 radiators and both have Scythe 120mm fans in a pull configuration. Everything is on one power supply, a Zippy PSL-6850(P) which is loud as hell and the 12 volt rail is taking a beating (I'll post some screenshots and describe the problem in the Case/Power forum).

Good job, really nice dual water rig! :thumbs: I also have a MountainMods case, with H2o. But mine is on the modest side, still evolving though! :D Here a few pic's http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=31199

I won a 600 watt Power Supply but not for the case (like I needed another power supply in the house :coocoo: )

Thanks for all the praise!! Anyone got ideas for cooling down the mosfet areas (air)? I was looking at some of the Thermalright offerings but the EVGA isn't compatible. :suspect:

Well you could always watercool it... :mischeif:

Thermalright has a few options Link (http://www.petrastechshop.com/rahesp.html) Other than that you may just have to stick with stock and just get some good airflow over it. You could probably custom mount a 60mm fan or so over it :D

Worse case scenario bga ram sinks should work. I would also add a small fan over them. ;)

I am drooling all over the place here! I may be a slob, but that case is immaculate. Oh maybe some day I will build a rig like that. Good job man.

Off topic:
P.S. I didn't know people still had those Furby things. It makes me laugh just thinking about those. Kinda like Beanie Babies. I don't even know what is today's fad, but it will probably be done tomorrow.
