I want to 1st off thank Billyfromhill for the fans!
 
Well I wanted to cool of my vregs so Billy had these 3 little 40mm fans in the MP so I got them zip-tie them together & put them into place!
Note* There just in there setting into place no zip-ties just the little pressure between the 120 fan & mobo & not to tight at all!

 
This is what I got at full load & can tell you from the past my Vregs temp was over 80c now it's only 72c max!

Normal temps & oc is at 4 cause I keep there for BigAdv!
 
 
while I was at it I zip-tied a 140mm fan in the 5.25 cage!
 
 
I hope this little mod will help you all out in some way!

    Wow that's toasty. Much better after the mod. No wonder the P67 has an I/O shield with an attachable 40mm exhaust fan!
     
    My P55 VREG never gets above 58*C so it must be the difference in TDP.

    You have the exact same cooling setup as me CPU wise!! Corsair H70 with cooler master r4 on the inside for looks and are you using the stock corair fan on the outside of the case? (or closest to the outside I should say)
     
    Those new vreg temps are much better as well! I hope when I get the EVGA P67 my temps aren't nearly that hot!!
     
    Also have you experimented with positioning the radiator upside down / right side up?? I never thought of putting it that way, I may switch it around in a sec because im curious at to if it will effect temps at all.

    Well I'm thinking of getting a res & some tubing & put the rad on the outside of the HAF-X & I know, why don't I just go into H2O cooling well I need money for that & it's going to cost me close to $1,000 for that!

    Wow, thats quite the decrease in vreg temps. 12C is a lot.
     
    Glad the fans worked out well for you. They're the perfect size.

    WOW what a surprise!!!!!!!! I just flipped over my H70 rad and it actually dropped my temps 1-2C across the board 
     
    The only thing I can think of is that it lets the pump squirt the liquid through the lines / rad more efficiently thus creating lesser temps, but it actually worked! COOOOLLLLLLLL

    SBB WCing shouldn't cost you a grand. You can take a look at my loop and I spent less than $500 on it.

    I imagine that is loud.
     
    Nice job though.
