post some feedback and let me know what you guys think
love the idea of the straight copper tubes, gj
thats just awesome full stop.
btw do u do mechanical engineering or u just a home handy man?
The coper tubing was my idea, but my dad is a engineer and he helped me with the layout and measuring and cutting of the tubes, and the saudering of the connections.
thats just great bud nice works... does the copper tube keep the coolant cooler?
cool, this post is perticually funny to me becasue as strange as it seems last nite in bed i was wondering if copper tubing would work rather then plastic 1/2" tubing for my water cooling setup.
umm i am not really sure, but i am sure it's slightly better than the plastic tubing, because that proably isulates the water
well dream no more, it is true it does work
what the temps idle and load?
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ OC'ed to 2.75GHz Cooled by a Thermaltake Silent Tower
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
2x512MB Crucial Dual Channel Value Ram
BFG Tech 7800GTX OC 256MB
WD 74GB Raptor (primary)
WD 250GB Caviar (secondary)
This rig calls an Antec Super Lanboy home and is powered by an Antec TruePower 2.0 550W.
I built the rig not too long ago, I know it was about a week before the 512 version of the 7800GTX came out.
I was originally planning to go SLI with the rig but I will most likely have a major CPU bottleneck so I'm holding off on that idea for a little while. Thanks for looking!
why 2 mouses?
wow 41C load is it a socket 775 or 478?
cuz im running mine under 40C under load oced 600mhz with a Zalman CNPS7700Alcu
One is a wireless mouse that goes with my keyboard. I don't use it that often because it gets a little flaky sometimes when I'm gaming...and the batteries don't last long.
socket 775, belive me that is a great temp for what i am running
wow im running mine oced to 3.6ghz and im running at 40C or less under Air Zalman CNPS 7700Alcu and idle it 28C or more sometimes depends
