So the basic question here is whether anyone can spot a problem or an area where improvement can be made to the system. Not really worried too much about price. It’ll be a few months before I get buying anything new, so as long as I have an idea about the cost I can budget for it. Thanks in advance.
Sorry about the URLs. I've gone back and fixed them.
I went with the black ice rad because at the time it was the best rad I could get for the money (actually got it for a huge deal at around $40). Which rad do you suggest?
Sorry for the confussion on the components. I'm only planning on one pump. You're right, I will be replacing a lot of parts. But I kind of need to. My original build had the pump/res/rad mounted outside the HAF. I had it all on another spare case i had lying around. I did it that way for a little easier maintenance and a little bit for aesthetics. Unfortunately I only realized recently when trying to migrate everything into the HAF about a month ago that the XSPC was nearly three mm too wide (it's actually bigger than their own specs). Being that i've used it for about eight months now, they're not about to replace it for me, so i figured i'd upgrade to a more powerful pump.
As for the mobo, it is at the moment only an idea. I'm planning on upgrading to the AMD bulldozer series next year, maybe around summer once i see how they perform and if any kinks are worked out. The Crosshair V has the 990X NB chipset, and in general looks to be a fairly good board. I did mention the full cover block because of the heat issue which comes with any board once you lose the crossflow on the NB and/or Mosfet when the CPU fan is replaced with a water block. I figured I could overcome any flow issues with a strong enough pump, or even a new loop if needed, but I guess you're saying that'd be a bad idea? I'll give it a second thought I suppose.
Right, so given the lack of further response I'm guessing no one's got any recommendations. Thinking on it I'm only replacing the two parts (pump and res), which seems like a lot because of the price attached. But really I haven't thought about changing the rad or blocks unless someone came up with a cleraly better option. my GPU doesn't get much higher than 50 celsuius when i game, and floats near 40 while doing regular work. My CPU sticks around 25 most of the time, getting near 40 again when under load. This is, mind you, while sitting in a room that is near 32 celsius anyway.
I was using CPUID Hardware Monitor's per-core temps instead of the top number uder the mobo heading. My assumption was that the core temps would be the more critical number to look at.
Right now my room's at 86 farenheit.
The temps read as follows [celsius(farenheit)];
