7 Tornados are seriously bad for your ears. I'm not kidding.

I know some of you don't care, but I say if Osha won't let you work and get paid in the same room as some comps... Don't sleep with them! Jesus people come on!

Hey man look you really need do not be around that kind of noise for any long periods of time. I've lost 10% and 40% in my right and left ears respectivly from drumming. I may only be 19 and I know you're only 15 Tony, but trust me man. There are two things that can't be fixed. Your spine and you ears. Everyones ears wear out with age people. The most you can do is slow down the process.

Yeah, man. My grandpa worked on trains.... comparable in noise to tornado fans. Now the phrase you hear him say the most is, "Huh?"
Do you want to be the one who say, "Huh?" all day?
Or the guy who starts talking about the good old days when someone asks you if the dog has been eating well, and not because you want to talk about the good old days, but because you don't know what they asked?
Or who thinks your kid calling on the phone, asking you to come to the hospital because he's sick, is a telemarketer?

Save your hearing. Nix the tornadoes. For that price, you could watercool.
Good lord, man, I'd rather lose my sight than my hearing.

You pretty much have to watercool a pelt these days. Look around... swiftech makes blocks with built-in cold plates for them. Some others do, too, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.
Without pelts, you'll do just fine putting the blocks in series with just one pump and one radiator. With pelts, you'll have better luck with two cooling systems or at least running them in parallel.

P.S. I hope you FOLD with that machine!
