Default Corsair Nautilus500 External Water Cooling

It may come as a surprise to some, but memory moguls Corsair actually threw together quite a great water cooling kit called COOL. Well, now they are testing different waters.. an external kit! We will be testing it on a very, very hot Intel Dual Core, so let's see how it does.

Read the review here and discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

Corsair made a name for itself in the water cooling business with their "COOL" kit. It's good to see them keeping up with other competitors in that market. The temps speak for themselves, this is a strong system. Corsair looks to be headed in the right direction.

Damn I think Corsair has a winner here with this selfcontained water cooling kit. It brought some great results.

Couple questions for you:

1) Were the temps you measured with the fan at high speed or low speed?

2) What are the temps at the other speed?

3) Do you have any sort of noise data at the two fan speeds? You said it was louder than the stock cooler, but I have no idea how loud that is.

4) Is most of the noise coming from just the fan, or does the pump, etc add much to it also?

Nice review. It looks like a good system. I wish I had one. Wanna donate it to me?
