Hi Mr.craig, thanks for the encouragement. Any time someone gets a unique product, I like to hear how it went. Just trying to return the favors.

Update: Been on about 24 hours and, as predicted, the case temp rose -- to 39C. This is a degree or two warmer, actually, than prior, but there's four fewer fans blowing around in there as well.

CPU rock solid at 26C no matter how hard I pound on it. This is with additional overclock, CPU up from 2.2Ghtz to 2.4Ghtz, VGA boosted -- 3dMark from 63,223 to 64,520.

Well, if I recall correctly, the case is still trapped within the furniture cabinet. So, it seems reasonable to expect the case temps will still have to struggle against the relative lack of heat exchange.

I wonder if attaching an 80mm fan to a funnel, mounting it inside your case, and running an air-hose from the end of the funnel to the outside of your cabinet would help? Providing there's enough room for a hose to fit through the hole in your cabinet? Essentially, duct-work on a miniature scale. Because of the small interior diameter the hose will have, I imagine the airflow probably won't be impressive. But some airflow may be better than none.

I am increasingly impressed by the water cooling performance. 8)
I tried using a "Point of View Gun", but my aim was lousy. ;-)

ASUS K8N, AMD Sempron 3100+(1.8ghz), 1gb RAM, eVGA 5500FX 256mb AGP, two WD120gb SATA drives in RAID 0 (striping), 450w power supply.

Fold well, so that others may prosper.

You can always make your own version of the RESERATOR for half the cost.

Take one or two of this 18" dual inlet aluminum finned cooler (polished aluminum or anodized red/blue)
plus one Rainbow Quiet One TMD Pump 4000 (1017gph) for maximum water flow even if you put it outside the house for a "true-quite-water-cooler" setup.


I have four 12" finned aluminum cooler (2 for soon to be 2 GPU/s, 2 for CPU/chipset) and two Rainbow Quiet One TMD Pump 1200 8)
still gathering dust waiting to be put together :cry:
