Hey peewee what is the internal size of the reservoir? I might be interested in a reservoir without a pump.

the res tank is 4x4x4 simple...

Hi Bender!
With all respect; there´s no need for a big reservoir! Of course, it will give you some delay regarding water temp rise, but indeed it will take further more time to cool down that amount of water! So keep it low, you won´t regret!
Take a look at my pic. Will be modding my res. to half of it´s size!

Actually I just wanted to know if my pump would fit inside. I just got a bilge pump from ebay so it must be in the water. Your reservoir is very cool, were did you get the Plexiglass and what did it cost. One of the local hardware stors might have the stuff but I have never looked.

Hi again Bender! Thanks!
The eight mm thick(!) plexi was quite expensive, at least here in Norway :(
Approx. 55$ converted from N.kr to dollars. My guess is that 6mm will do the trick as well, to a more "cosy" price!?
btw, I bought the plexi at a glazier store.
Good luck!!

Bender,

I hate say it, but you might as well know now. Those bilge pumps are only designed for infrequent use and most for 1500 hrs. Just wanted to prepare you (in case you weren't planning on using it for a boating/ water [email protected] home situation). See:

I stand corrected by Ingo, his math is right 1500 hours = 62.5 days continuous. If you use BenderMath you get almost 1.7 years! Thought something was a little fishy.

Fjeld your case looks cool! I thought mine looked good but yours just looks 10x better! I'll have to go water cooling to get it looking that good.

BTW is that quite popular to put a hsf on the waterblock? Ive never seen that done before LOL! It could only work if you had your case off all the time otherwise you'd be putting more heat into the case which would increase your temps.

Have you thought about posting your comp on VirtualHideout.net (if its ever up that is). I think my computer is somewhere around the 140-142 page. I've changed a lot since so I should update too.
