    When Watercooling fails...

    Ok, I know the title is a little off, but oh well!

    Anywho today I left for work like normal, computer still huming alone, well I came home from work at 5pm PST (my time) and noticed my comp was off. Thought to myself, boy thats odd. So I looked at the floor next to my case, and what do you know, my Watercooling tubing come undone! Granted I was using a piece of copper to bridge to piece's together held in place with heavy duty zipties. (I know, dont flame) Well I thought I was jacked cause of water all over the case, well I checked it out and all was good! Thank god! All that happened was the water shot off on to the floor, thank god it was the pumping end, well I learned my lesson on this one, and took myself to the home depot to get more hose clamps! Thank god I had set the BIOS to shut off the comp when it reach's 60c. it was off from about 12pm to 5:30pm PST.

    I have included some pics to show you what it looked like when I got home.

    Osirus,

    At least everything is ok. I like learning experiences where things are a little messy but not messed up!!!

    What kind of temps are you getting with that setup? I have a 3.2E oced to 3.9 so far and I think I am limited by temps.
