    Finally my Rig photos!!!

    Well it's been along time until this day of completion, but it was I must say worth it. First I'd like to thank everyone here at OC's for assisting in making this machine a reality! Well here it is: Abit TH7 2 Raid running a P4 Northy 1.6 @ 2.5/ 1.825. G Force 4 TI 4400 running @ 300/ 697. It runs stable as it has survived 3D Mark 2001 looping benchmarks. It did not run stable @ 2.6 any longer as it would crash on about the 3rd test every time so I'll have to live with 2.5. I replaced a stick of RAM (I killed the other in a failed heatsink mod) so I'm not certain if this is why I lost the additional 100 MHZ. Here are several photos, please feel free to comment both good and bad as advice is always helpful. LATER!

    Very slick bud. But you forgot your temps. What are H20 setups without great temps? I know you got some with that setup. Nice parts choice. I like the res/airtrap combo. Or is that a bleed tube out of the res? Do you have UV Cathodes, or what are you using to make that water glow green? I see what looks like "EL Neon Cable" around the DD Rad. Lemme know what your Ambient Temps, Idle Temps, and Load temps after Prime95 torture are. Very nice work though...be proud!

    Here is a shot of the Fill valve. The resevoir is also in this shot. It is made od Nylon. I probably could have used nylon barbs, but I preferred the presence of brass myself.

    A cool photo I thought! Notice the Corb on the Northy. It probably didn't help anything, but it was a cheap mod that looked cool anyway. Note all this light is given as a result of the black light interacting with the fluid. The Water wetter/Dyelite is a great combo.

    Ill get back to you guys on the prime 95 temps just give me a few. OK my Idle temp is 39C and my CPU under load is 43.5C. Does this seem to be average? I used the requested prime 95 benchmark.

    Yes I used cathode ray tubes. The valve is used for a fill valve although it does work as a bleeder too. The res is custom. I went into this project with the idea that I must have this entire cooling system inside the build. It was a challenge since it was a mid tower. Notice the BayBus actually shares the same drive bay as the res.

    I used water wetter along with Dye Lite for the added glow look. It uses the ultra violet light to give this effect.

    Here is the added blower I call the HDD cooler. It's directly under the HDD I usually leave this set on low with the Bay Bus. It sucks the air from the HDD and blows it into the build. Hot glue was used to mount the heat exchanger. Does anyone know how to post a Word Doc. I saved my scores and would like to show the screenshot with WCPUID, Score and temp all in one if possible.

    Man that is really slick..
    Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

    But whats at the top of the fill tube?
    I am putting a threaded PVC coupling with threaded cap at the top of my case for filling.

    Well I decided not to tap out the top of the machine. It just stops about an inch or so above what you see. I am considering bringing the fill valve through the top though. I have to pull the tube and fill it with a funnel. I was hoping I would not have to fill often, but I can see I will every 2-3 weeks or so. My fill tube drops about a 1/2" a day.

    GREAT rig man, my congratulations. Try keeping your rad fans going a little faster and you should get some better temps. Your temps aren't bad, but they seem a little high for a watercooling setup.

    Anyway, keep up the modding!

    Yeah I have to agree! My temps are ticking me off. We had many discussions in the Abit/Intel threads on the Mobo reported temps. I even did a study that showed a wide variation from what my gun displayed. If I remember right there is a 3-5C deviance from the gun and the Mobo. The gun does have a +/- 2F accuracy. Later!!!!!!!!
