I am about to install a water cooling system in my Antec SX830 case (GREAT CASE!!!). I think its gonna be a Dtek not that it matters. I was wondering if anybody has measured the temperature of the air that comes off the radiator. I saw hoot was blowing air into his case over his heater core on his water block test on the front page so i figure it has to be alright but i wonder exactly how much higher than ambient it is. A couple degrees is alright but if its 4 or 5 then i dont think i want to do that.

Thanks,
Ferg

the air exiting my radiator was less than 1C warmer than the air coming in. The greater the airflow through the radiator, the less time the exiting air has a chance to warm. Kind of like something at a low profit but making up for it in volume sales.
