I was looking for accessories for my Jerker and came across this posting - http://www.ebay.com/itm/IKEA-Jerker-Desk-2nd-Generation-VERY-GOOD-CONDITION-/221463590374
They might be gone by the time anyone finds this though. $250 is steep, but if you're hard pressed finding a used one locally the...

Those temps are pretty hot for only having the CPU in the loop. Mine (like Tsumi's) never goes about 70c under stress test load. Also an RX360 can handle 3 OC'd 470's and a OC'd 930 without any problems, so you should be able to throw two 580's on the RX480 easily.
If you don't plan on upgrading anytime soon I'd look into some used full cover GPU blocks, but if you're a person who is constantly upgraded the universal solutions are your best bet with VRAM heat sinks.
Whether it was new or old, the price for the performance you get on the XSPC kit is a very good value. I'd just recommend running a different pump in the XSPC kit if you're running 3 WB's.

Yes, because it's absolutely netflix's fault for ISP's and Movie Studious putting the squeeze on them with bandwidth limitations, data caps and the studios wanting more money for their upcoming contract renewals.
I still think it's the fact that it's a benchmark/stress test and it is prepping the next set of test during that time. Prime95 does it and so does LinX when it gets ready for the next test. How long does it drop down for? There's no way he's going to get 52c at load on an i7 970 OC''d over 4Ghz...
If you're using 1/2" ID on 1/2" fittings then you should use clamps or zipties to secure the tubing on the barb. The reason for 7/16 on 1/2 is because you just heat up the tubing pop it on and once it cools it's secure.
That's what you do for a tight fit. And you will be able to get it off without cutting, I've done it many times. You also shouldn't need a flat head or anything else to get it on if you soak it in the boiling water long enough.
Edit: No wonder why it doesn't fit that well you're using 3/8'ID...
