    Re: How does this sound?

    Correct. Something that most people fail to understand is that *airflow is critical*

    So I opted to get rid of the problem, once and for all:

  5. Re: External rad. How to disconnect hoses without leakage?

    I've opted to put a fill point at the top of my case (Chieftec Dragon DA-01, the 26" tall beast), as well as a valve at the bottom, to ease the drain.

    My case now has casters on it, giving me...

    This particular unit draws 3.5 amps@110VAC, for a total of ~385 Watts, with a 5 amp draw at startup.

    That indicates to me that it's a compressor type of cooler.

    It would be rated for about 1/2...

    Don't trust your CPU temp readings... they could be off by 10 deg C.

    If you want to invest, follow Swiftech's guide for sticking a thermocouple right next to the core.

    It's not going to work. Claiming that it's fit for a P4 is just wrong.

    since the pump is submerged here, leaking isn't an issue (not that it's known to be, with this model).
