Actually Daniel, I have a question. Is there an advantage using a 3/8" line to the CPU- block, and a 1/2" return? My theory is the smaller diameter increasing pressure to the block? Doesn't the water actually come out semi-atomized for better cooling effect"? Or is it just a flow thorugh system?

Good questions all. Unfortunately these are questions a good many others can no doubt answer better than I.

However my guess would be that the line should all be the same size. I base this upon what Gabe at Swiftech has Incorporated into his kits. I know Gabe has done a great deal of research and produced good to great results. Also it seems to me that a larger exit would not benefit as it could not remove more than it receives?? It's unknown to me how/if a lager exit would maintain a consistent pressure.

Given the low pressures involved in my kits ( older models) I would guess that no atomization is involved.

Me? I would ask someone, and there are many here, Yourself among them, who knows what they are talking about! ":O}

As far as I'm aware, you can only atomise liquids in the presence of another gas. That way, the gas acts as a carrier for the very fine droplets. Hence, if you have a watercooling system, it's not possible to atomise anything, as there's a distinct lack of anything to carry the water!

Doh. I should have got that prima-facie. But how about the lines? Is there an advantage using a 3/8" to the waterblock, and 1/2" return?

Not to burst your bubble No 1, but the Exos is not a very good kit. It's on par with air cooling (ie SLK-800-U w/ a panaflo). As far as 3/8 vs 1/2" lines the difference is marginal at best. Good flow is a more signigant factor here. This can be had with a pump with good head preasure ,low wattage and eliminating 90s from the loop. The radiator is also a major factor in flow. A single pass rad will out perform a two pass set up. That's why I'm getting a single myself now. BillA did a great comparison on another site regarding this and that was the out come of his findings.

I built my own external setup. It was inspired by my lack of room and this design by Dino

If you want a kit that's fine. There are some really good ones out there. Just do your homework on it first because you're spending your money and you want the most for your dollar. An educated consumer is always more satisfied with their purchase, because they took the time to see what they were getting first.
