I irreversibly made the decision to include my AMD HD 6870 into the loop. I hated the noise it made all the time with that horrible stock cooler. I mounted my Swiftech MCW55 (which I got from Swiftech — for free — in 2004!) onto it and it made excellent contact. I am actually running the system now and it’s so much quieter! The block almost cut my temperatures in half.
I’ll try to post pictures of the entire system by tomorrow.
I’ll at least post the MCW55 & AMD 6870 pictures right away !
