Good to hear :) . I assume you still have it mounted inside the case and the case is closed? Do you have the pump between the fan and reservoir or the other way around (assuming you have the radiator and fan at the lower front of the case)?

the radiator is on top by my power supply, the res is on the bottom, i have a 120mm fan suckin through the rad and i have 4 120mm's on order i dont have my case closed cauz i dont have any fans but the on on the rad and powerspply..the pump is a little warm so maybe i'll install a small fan next to it to cool it down... its a mag drive so it should be ok...

Mount the radiator outside the case and I bet your temps will drop a lot. It is inconveinent though, I know.

Although your temps are spanking the hell out of mine right now. The Asus probe says temps are at 55c right now. So I'm assuming thats 45c. From what I've heard the probe registers 10c higher then actual temp. This is with my 1.2 gig @ 1.3 gigs only. I can get well over 1.4 gigs but I'm running to warm. I start getting a little concerned! I'm still working out some of my watercooling issues. The rad is fine, But I could use a new pump and waterblock I think. The waterblock is actually a PIII slot 1 waterblock. I had to put 90 degree barbs on to make it work. As well as make a clamp to hold it on. And the pump is an inline Rio 200 gph pump. I think the water flow is to restricted, and thats causing the temps to rise.

Only thing is I don't have the money right now for a new waterblock and pump. So I'll have to stick it out with what I've got right now. I just won't overclock any higher. I may even drop it down to 1200mhz till I get it all fixed. Even at 1200mhz it wups my old PIII 800 @ 1000mhz! This new board, cpu and Radeon 64 are awesome!

I'm not sure if you would get any better results pulling the air from the case. It's warmer then the air outside the case. It's a toss up I guess. When you get some more case fans it should be better. Then you can have some intake fans in front and exhaust fans in the back. Then close your case up and you should get much better system temps.

The case fans will effect your motherboard temps a lot more then your cpu temps. But it may drop your cpu temps a few c.

no, if your room temp is @ 28 you wont get it any lower then that. I don't think 28's bad. Thats cool enough for me.
