From liquid back to air (stock) cooling

It’s been over a month now since I had to switch back to air cooling. I’ve been using a Thermaltake Big Water SE liquid cooling system since the day I built my Athlon64 PC. It was a joy having to figure out how to fit in the Big Water system inside an all-aluminum Lian-Li casing (PC-07B). I had to mount the large 12cm radiator outside rather than inside the casing. But after about 9 months of usage, the liquid pump gave out and would not circulate the coolant anymore. I had to disassemble the Big Water system which did not come out to be as hard as I thought it would be. From CPU Idle temp of 34C, it’s now at 39C using the stock AMD CPU air cooler. If I don’t find a way to get a replacement liquid pump, then perhaps I’ll sell my Big Water SE to Tipidpc.
