After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

For our tests we are using a single Corsair Nautilus 500 directly attached to the H30 via 3/8" ID tubing and pure distilled water as the cooling medium. Ambient temperature was 27c and tests were run until the temperature stabilized. Dominator GT memory was run under XMP profile @ 1.65v
Humidity in the Ninjalane Labs is generally very low, on the order of < 20% most days, so we had high hopes to see some frost when running the Ice T30 unloaded.
Instead we just got a little bit of water.
