    Both fans have 56CFM all good ;)

    And remember my 4870 idles @ 36C on air

    Excellent stuff, that is exactly what I was looking for. I might try installing the stock fan on the rear of the radiator and the cases 140mm on the front in a super-duper-mega-push-pull configuration.

    I still don't think it will be able to handle the extra heatload. The TDP of a HD70 is ~ 160W. The TDP of the E6550 is ~65W. So a total of 225W. And there is no way a single 120mm radiator will be able to handle that heatload w/ 2 55CFM fans. 2 55CFM fans does not mean 110CFM, it will still be 55CFM w/ more pressure, which isn't going to help in your situation. And the fact that the domino uses small tubing / pump is really going to add another bottleneck. With 1/2in ID tubing the 120mm radiator is going to at max be able to dissipate 175W w/ high CFM fans. With 3/8in ID tubing that drops to ~ 125W. With 1/4in ID tubing (which i think the domino uses) you are looking at 100W. I am pretty confident that your temps will be higher if you left the HD4870 on air cooling and only cooled the CPU with the domino.

    I highly suggest grabbing a 2 x 120mm radiator. Hell if you need one for cheap, I'll sell you my old one for $20 CAD + shipping (even includes decent fans).

    Interesting and I may do this in 2 stages if you want to sell that dual rad and fans I am interested ... do you have a Paypal account? The Tempest does have dual rad support on the top.

    On the power consumption for the HD4870 keep in mind I am cooling the GPU only there are ram sink kits for the memory and regulators. The bigger rad might be a better idea for the video cards anyway ... I will send you a PM on the rad thanks ;)

    Cool that should work and if you need to extend the fan wires it isn't a big deal. On the rad location and the reason I am dumping the original hoses is because they are very rigid and length is limited. For those playing around with this cooler keep in mind the barbs on the FHE are metal but the ones on the rad and pump are plastic .. Be Careful !!

    OH I am observing Mac, Don't worry. Just lurking that's all ;)

    This is my first foray into Water cooling so I can't argue either way.

    Props for tearing into that Domino. Mac by the time you are done with it theres only going to be the pump and LCD screen left of the original domino and that's it :). It looks like an awesome mod. Oh, and nice paint work by the way :D

    Thanks Bro and you are right the pump and the controller unit are the keys to the Domino. I may have to go with a stronger pump if I decide to go crossfire but will figure that out as I go.

    Installing the rad and 2 x 140mm Tempest top fans tonight will post some pics up later or in the Morrow :)

    OK here we go the dual rad mounted along with the original Tempest 2 x 140mm top exhaust fans. The Tempest fans are 3 pin but the ones on the rad are 4 pin which means I should be able to control the speed in BIOS through the CPU fan header on the mobo. These speeds have to be close for push/pull and this is still in the testing stages. It will be a month or so before this is completely finished.

    (Excuse the dust I will blow everything out with the air compressor after all fitting is finished)

    PPS: Yes the wiring on the rad fans are sleeved :w00t:

    Thanks Steve and procupine14 me too Bro gonna be a bit yet. I think I might redesign the interface so the Domino control unit actually provides the 3 speed settings to the 4 pin fans on the rad :)
