I posted this but it disappeared...?

Anyway here it goes again....my watercooling is done and I am impressed!
Check these specs and give me some feedback if you could, I don't really know if I am in the ballpark.

BeCool copper block
12"x5" radiator
(2) 120mm fans at 10v (VERY quiet!) @50cfm each
custom made aluminum reservoir (wait till u see the pics!)
TBird 1.0 @1.2 w/ 2.05v core
(2) 80mm case fans at 7v (ultra quiet)

ambient temps 22c-25c
cpu idle temp 28c-30c
case temps 28c-30c
cpu loaded temps 38c-42c (depends on ambient)

At stock speeds max loaded temps never broke 34c on the cpu, this was during the initial test. Once I cracked it up, temps rose accordingly due to the estimated 85 watt heat load. But still, this rig is killer quiet and temps seem fine for such a high core voltage. 100% stable as well, not a single crash in 6 days.....
