Hi finally got around taking some pictures of my rig, here's the spec list

Case: P182
Fans: 4 Noctua <600Rpm, 1 Scythe slip/stream 5V
CPU: Q6600 G0 2.4Ghz
GPU: XFX 8800GTS 320MB
Water cooler: Zalman reserator XT "Volt modded"
Ram: GSkill 6GB DDR2
OS hdd: 80Gb Intel xm25m
Files hdd: 1Tb WD green
Programs hdd: 250Gb Seagate
PSU: Corsair Hx520
OS: Windows 7 Professional
Screens:Dell 2407, LG Flatron 17"

Ive opened up my reserator and fitted a 8V resister, now the dam Zalman reserator is quite ^^ and as can see from my temps they didnt take a knock with coolant ideling at 7C above ambient room temp.

Ambient room: 21C "roughly"
Coolant temp: 28C
CPU: 34-34-37-39C
GPU: 45C
Temps recorded after 2 hours.

This is running the zalman at min speed ^^

Coolant temps pic :)

Close up internals

Ive used cable ties on the tubing where it connects to the cpu water block to prevent any kinks as the tubing is'nt the Zalman stuff so was a royal pain to work with, soak in hot water then quickly push it on and cable ties to secure :P

If anyone got a spare dell 24" 2407 i'll gladly take it off ur hands for free ;) hehe replace my ugly LG screen :P

I did run the cpu at 3Ghz simply pushing up the FSB but resulted in temps that I think are too high specially when running at 100% load at periods over 10 hours hit around 70C as i can remember on cpu and 65 ish on gpu. 2.4Ghz is enough for me :)
