So you want quiet. Heres what I have in a quiet H2o rig. I have an old Maze2 water block 1/2", 1/2" hose, Eheim 1250 pump, 5gal. reservoir, thats it! No radiator, one case fan for a RAID setup, its a 92mm, plus the Enermax psu fans. This setup is very quiet. If I used only one drive, I could eliminate this fan also. This is not a good setup for extreme oc'ing. Moderate oc'ing and quiet is the name of this game! :)

I am water myself... Hm, mine isn't that quiet actually... Got 3 Enermax adjustable fans + nb fan and PSU... I know I should've gotten myself the Black Ice Extreme rad... But I went with the vanilla stuff... Happy anyway... :D

At the moment I got my poor little 2.4bghz@180fsb priming without errors and stuff... This is with default voltage... So I don't know... I've hit the wall yet.... Hm, I am around 38-40C in fulload I THINK... The Abit IC7 temp sensor is wicked... So I am guessing it's showing about 10 degrees to hot... Oh well... Hm, I think I am going to get an BIX 'til the fall... :D


Hm, a small refrigerator... Hm, might work out just fine... Why don't get a Prommie right away... ;p j/k the hard thing might be having the refridge holding together while your putting lots of heat into it... :D

when I get a few moments away from the Intel boards i will run off some benches for you and a few full piccy's of the cube in all its glory.I can say these cpu's run real hot and air cooling was to noisey to be an option, its not quiet now, but a lot better than it was before.
