you'll get a turbulation in the waterflow, where a straight flow would be better (for the RBX). And off course you'll get a presure loss, and on a block like the RBX, that shows.

As for the radiator, the black ice pro 2 is a step in the good direction. The site I had only showed the extreme (that's 20mm thicker)

quarantaine: how high are these firrings when screwed in??
And if you got any pics I'd be gratefull. I might take some off your hands once everything is up and running.

(they are fixed at the pump)
it depends on how deep you screw them in, fully screwed in are they about 27mm high

I think that Liquid Jet-Array Cooling works efficiently due to the fact that cool water is sprayed onto the copper at a high velocity, placing a 90C right in front of the intake will pretty much increase the complete water loops resistance, and you will end up with

a) worse performance
b) needing a bigger pump (more noise) to maintain performance

no need to use big words, 90 elbows just lower the flow in the water

a) what do you consider worse, and do have you tested how many degrees the difference makes?

b) eheim 1200l/h barely makes more noise then the 600l/h, it's as silent when modded. noise is not the problem but I get the point

and please, don't over-react. it are only two elbows, so many people use them. are you serious you're going to buy a bigger pump just because of two elbows?

to be honest i don't think the difference in will be that big

maybe it should be tested

edit : after all , he's nog going for the best watercooling setup in the world , silence is its main target.

^up

Zalman @ low is more silent then the watercooling you want to install.

Maybe, though a good setup with 120mm fans should be pretty silent, not to mention it would be smaller (what I have in mind is anyway)

I'm getting 37C with the zalman on medium and just one casefan running. That's pretty good all things concidered.
This is idle however since I stopped with Distributed.net.
There's a HP80C with fan (5V) on the XT, keeping it nice and cool too. It's just this large lian li that's bothering me ATM.

About the elbows, I'll have to measure. It's a bit tall, but if I can't find anything better I'll take some off your hands to try out.

put it all in a small, alu case, and you'll have a compact, silent, performant, cool rig.

the zalman should be capable of running at low settings if you use a nice 120mm side-fan running at very low RPM (and try to squueze a 120mm fan at the top and you are really set temp wise); and by adding it to the side you can disable the fan for your XT

for a small case, side + top fan have giving me the best results, and if you use them both at very low RPM you won't hear them and the CPU temp will be LOW I guarantee.

A lian-li PC60 isn't that big. and a PC30 puts the PSU over the CPU and that ain't good either.
All that's left is a home made case.
afterall where would the fun be in buying a prebuilt case?
