Re: Corsair Nautilus 500 Radiator Modifications Improved Cooling

Glad it worked out for you. I will check the fittings for leaks too. :shock: I did it!! It took me too long because I did some stupid things. First, don't bother to drain. Just tilt the damn thing and use a thin torx wrench to open the spigots and drain just the radiator. There will be fluid left in...

Re: Corsair Nautilus 500 Radiator Modifications Improved Cooling

Candidly, while I have drained many a watercooling rig, this is my first experience with this one so I can't speak intelligently on whether running dry would hurt the pump. But since all pumps start dry before you prime them, I can't see it hurting for a short term. Maybe check out Corsair's forums?...

Re: Corsair Nautilus 500 Radiator Modifications Improved Cooling

I guess you already have an up-and-running unit, since they ship empty. :lol: I've always found a turkey baster to be helpful for both filling and emptying resevoirs. http://www.preparedpantry.com/productimages/kitchentools/thumbnail-turkeybaster.jpg This particular unit is a lot easier than most wa...

Re: Corsair Nautilus 500 Radiator Modifications Improved Cooling

Well, I bought one of these Nautiluses and ordered the BE Extreme. Kathi said she'd include the blue poly elbows. Gonna majorly upgrade a friend's rig with this cooling a quad. I assume I can just chop off the brackets from the old radiator without too much problem or loss of hose, and use the snake...

Anyone used a different block with this?

Hi guys,

Thinking about getting a Nautilus500 for a friend's PC I am upgrading. Anyone try a different waterblock with this unit?

TIA.

EDIT: Just read the first page, sorry. I like the raddy mod though.

So what's the latest on those using P-M's?

I sold mine after I fried my mobo. And when I say fried, I mean smoke was coming out of the N/B and it made a fried bacon sound. :(

Apoptosis, Nice review. My question is how high can you go on vcore? Seems everyone is limited to ~1.6v, but the BIOS says up to 1.9v+. :? BTW, I have a P4P800-DX (non-e) that I am currently typing on with a 760. Clocks to about 2.7 stable on stock cooling and 1.6v, but it is FSB-limited and when I ...
