Completed build

(1) Black ice SR-1 360 Radiator
(1) Black ice SR-1 140 Radiator
(1) Swiftech
(1) XSPC Dual bay reservoir
(1) Koolance CPU 370 Block
(2) Heatkiller 560 TI blocks


16gigs Ram/I7 2600K/SLI 560TI

The Black Ice SR-1's are great, they allow a ton of air and do an awesome job keeping the rig cool. I have these radiators hooked up to Aero-cool shark fans and they do a great job and make little noise. The Koolance CPU 370 block is a great block and it cools my I7 2600K perfectly. The temperatures on my CPU are 32*C to a max of 55*C. I also have to say I'm glad that I went with the Heatkiller GPU blocks. They where easy to install, look great and cover the cards perfectly. They do a very good at job keeping my SLI 560TI's cool under heavy load. On GPU#1the temperatures are 26*C to 44*C at max load. On GPU #2 they are slightly less with temperatures at 25*C to 41*C at max load. As far as the pump goes it is great this thing moves some water and is dead silent once air bubbles are out of the lines.

I was a bit worried at first that this set up may not have been enough to cool my system but fortunately for me it worked out. I can say I was most worried about the radiators and constantly contemplated getting a higher FPI radiator. After seeing how well these perform in my system I think I made the right choice. Anyone who is thinking about getting these radiators should they truly do work great.
Here is some pictures on my finished build.

Looks really good. Nice job...

I just built an AMD 8150 system about a month ago and was dumb enough to use the CPU fan that came with the processor. Even more dumb was overclocking the processor to 4.2 GHZ.

I do a lot of ripping with DVDFab and one day noticed the processor at 70 degrees celcius. Kept it going then the PC would shutdown.

Last Saturday went out and bought the Corsair H100 water cooling system and that just runs so good. I am testing doing the same ripping job and the processor sits at 30 degrees celcius.

Nice build. Clean, not too over the top. Functional.

what do you have in the top bay? I just got done with my aunt's computer a few months ago and I was surprised by the lack of USB3.0 on cases, so having an addon option like that might be beneficial.

That came built into the case. However you can find bay drives like mine at bestbuy. With a quick look on new egg I found this one
