I know A few people in the clan have self contained CPU water coolers. They are great for Cooling CPUs especially the Corsair units which traditionally I have had the best luck with.

Like any other CPU cooler they still need a fan. In this case to cool a radiator, instead of just a heat-sink. Like any other cooler these are prone to collecting dust and I HIGHLY recommend keeping these clean. Especially after cleaning my old PC today.

My old PC:

E8400 @ 3.0Ghz
Corsair H50 self contained water cooler
4Gb Ram
320Gb HDDx2
XFX Radeon HD 4890  
Cooler Master Cosmos 1k encloser

After retiring this PC from my use last November, I put it to use as an office computer for my dad, which it now resides in a  very dusty house we use as an office.  I went to use it the other day it was sloooowww. So I cleaned internet files and etc. Then I open the ASUS OC profiler and it said my CPU was running at 96°F IDLE. The problem is that I know it ran about room temperature ~73°F  idle to ~90°F under Load (gaming) for me. So opened the front of the case and it was dusty, but not bad, so I blew it out anyway. As I'm using my air compressor  looked through the top vent and saw the dust was not coming off the radiator. So I today pulled it apart to dust the radiator and found this:

Yes the Graphics card has "drooped over" 2 and a half years. Gravity is a B****.

After cleaning the computer the CPU runs again at a temperature about ~76°F Idle. I realized I had not cleaned it in about a year since I gave it to my dad. The cooler setup is ~2-1/2 years old. I expected some heat gain due to age of components.  

So moral of the story, you still have to clean a self contained CPU H20 cooler. Just thought I would share since I know a few members have this setup or something similar.

I clean mine twice a year. I pull my computer outside every time and bring 3 cans of compressed air, and I go to town with it. I use a similar CPU cooler as you, I think I have the H60, You can see some pics here:

Living in Oklahoma (aka the dust bowl ) I clean mine once per month --because  I have too ---

with the new build I found that women's pantyhose work really well if you affix them over your air intake /out take  areas on your case --so far has cut way down on the dust  , for both mine and my wife's new system . (black hose to match the black case zunge zeigen )

if you go  high end --dont ever take a chance on losing your investment on air cooling fine for case cooling and keeping airflow in the case  not  on the newer cpu's --all the new cpu's run very hot ---water cooling in my humble opinion is a must -- I started off with water cooling on the cpu  now I am also looking into getting on my lathe and making blocks for my GPU's (graphics cards )

I actually tryed air cooling for the cpu at first with one of the best air cooling systems available and had trouble maintaining decent temperatures and switched to water cooling on my new build .

currently I am running a corsair

when its time to dust out the case I take it out to the garage and blow it out with the air  hose as I have a compressed air unit out there

if you ever feel like talking computers /builds etc.. hit me up on teamspeak , I have been building my computers for 20 years now .

My system:  build date about 4 months ago .

coolermaster haf 922 case
asus sabertooth 990fx board
fx 8120 amd cpu 8 cores overclocked to 4.1
32 mb mushkin blackline performance 1600 ram
corsair H100 cpu water cooling
ocz 120 gb ssd drive
wd raptor 120 gb  10,000 rpm drive
2 MSI Lighting hawke  edition 7870 ati graphics cards in crossfire (2gb ddr5 memory each )
samsung led 24 inch syncmaster monitor
XFX 1000watt black edition power supply
logitech extreme 3d pro joystick
razer imperator mouse 6400 dpi  with razer exact mat
creative fatality pro series headset /mic

That was my old system again it's running the corsair H50 cooler. I'm just surprised at the temp difference and that it's lasted this long considering how long the computer has been on. I originally had a Zalman air cooler on it and it ran good, but I was intrigued by the H2O units. So I gave it a try and will keep using them and ran 5 degrees cooler under load w/ the H2O unit.  

My current system as of 11/2011:

Intel 2600K Oc'd @ 4.8Ghz
Asus Sabertooth P67 Mobo
Corsair Vengeance 32GB 1600 Ram
1 AMD Radeon 2Gb 6950 W/ 6970 Bios
Soundblaster X-fi Fatality
2x 120 GB Kingston SSD
2x 2Tb Seagate HDD  
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
Corsair 650D chassis
Corsair H80i w/ link interface.

It runs great, minus the lack of sleep mode. P67 chipset flaw - I want to go w/ a Z77 board w/o video onboard which is nearly impossible to find.  I went ahead and cleaned it, realizing it's been 6mo since I cleaned it. It wasn't nearly as bad. I just hope It last as long as the old machine.

Ha ha your load temperatures are my idle temperatures if I'm lucky, but that's what I get for putting almost all the things you guys put in your cases, sans water cooling, in a 1ft cubed metal box with minimal airflow. I'm surprisingly more comfortable at the temperatures I run at than I should be.  augen rollen Out of habit I clean out my fans every couple of months, so at least I'm not being punished too harshly for dust build-up.

right, specs are probably in order:

Intel Core i5-2500K (stock)
ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe
G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin SO-DIMM DDR3
EVGA Geforce GTX570 Superclocked
1x Samsung 830 256GB SSD
2x Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB HDD (the original HD204UI drives)
OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W PSU
Lian-Li PC-Q08 mini-ITX case (originally was a mITX server box with 5x HDDs and RAID card)
Prolimatech Samuel 17 Heatsink with a 120mm GELID PWM fan installed.
