New P4/RBX Water Cooling Rig [Pics]

Just finished seting up my Watercooling on my recently aquired P4 2.6C/Abit IC7 combo. Here are my components:

-Single Pass HC
-Single 120mm Fan, Tupperware shroud
-DangerDen RBX, Plate #1
-Via Aqua 1300
-Clearflex-60 1/2 tubing
-T-Line, no res

I had to hack up my case pretty good to get the rad to fit. See Before:

So All in All, I added Water Cooling, lapped the stock NB HS/F while adding AS 5, and installed an Arctic Cool on my Radeon 9800.

Temps Before, running stock HSF/Voltage/Speed was 59-60c at load (Prime AND Folding both running)

Now, with 1.625v (1.6 measured), WC, 3250Mhz I am at 50c at full load.

I know the Abit boards tend to read high, am I safe with these temps?

I want to push more, but that will happen later on :)

Temps seem a bit warm. What is ambient? Your tubing looks as if it is exerting a good amount of 'pull' on the block. You should rectify that ASAP.

if you're in ny temps should be quite low this time of the year with the big snow and all.. unless your house is heated up to summer temps i dont see why your temps are so high
