    So, can it become the first post forever in the posts? And not lost somewhere?
    I sticked it, put some capital letter text with asterisks and made it the only yellow-text thread (frontpage), but you know how stickies are. I fear it will receive less exposure than a random thread. Unfortunately you can't format subject lines with color/bold. Hope this helps a little at least.

    Is that a flow meter between your CPU & NB blocks?

    Honestly, next time you do a tear down, take the thing out. It's not going to do you a bit of good. If you have enough flow, your temps will be fine. If you don't, they'll be too high. If your pump stops, you'll know when your CPU throttles. All they do for you is restrict flow IMHO.

    Also, don't bother with memory unless you just want it for looks. Modern memory doesn't get hot enough to justify the restriction you'd put in your loop. At least IMHO.

    Dude Jeremy...you've totally outdone yourself with this one

    Everytime I read something I wanted to criticize, I'd continue on, and you'd address my concern in the next paragraph. Very well written, and exceptionally thorough.

    The only criticisms fall on your editors; the titles/headings/sub-headings could be improved a little IMO.

    Great work

    Thank you very much! I'm as much to blame for those items as any. We're somewhat limited with our heading options and some look too similar to others. Now, if you were referring to their wording, I'm happy to entertain changes. Let me know what you had in mind.

    Ah, a couple more things.

    Mention running multiple pumps in series.

    When talking about tubing, I would mention the difference between 1/16" walls and 1/8" walls, the advantages/disadvantages of each size....and you might also mention that (contrary to popular belief) the most kink resistant size is 3/8" ID 5/8" OD

    I've heard the best is 1/2"x5/8" with antikink coils

    I'm talking about bare tube (no coils)....bringing coils into the discussion might change things a bit

    ....or are you just being a PITA?

    I'm appalled, I would never...

    But no, I'm actually genuinely interested in what tubing combination gives you the best turn radius...haven't seen much on it since the testing over at XS, which didn't include any kink coil testing

    The thicker the walls, the less likely to kink.

    3/8" ID 5/8" OD has 2/8" 1/8" thick walls. 1/2" (4/8") ID 5/8" OD has 1/8" 1/16" thick walls.

    Actually, it's only half those numbers, 1/8" and 1/16" thick, because there are two walls per diameter.

    Adding coils to the outside changes that, though, so 1/16" thick tubing with coils, like 1/2-5/8", won't kink as easily as tubing with 1/8" walls but no coils.

    Oops, edited

    But, yeah, 3/8"x5/8" has twice wall thickness.

    I think the reasoning is that the tubing itself will only bend so much, thinner tubing will bend more, so if you force it to not kink, you can get a tighter turn...
