    Looks impressive. That's a lot of CD-Rs (?) acting like a tower. :lol: Get that baby all in the case and show it off in its glory :)

    it's a nice and fast rig... plays doom 3 brilliantly... but then it played it brilliantly at stock speeds... lol

    I just wish that there wasn't the problem with the ram slot... at ultra texture res you notice the difference between 1gb and 2gb... my oc just about makes up for the difference...

    I'll rma the mobo in a week or two and get 2gb crucial ballistix and a gallatin in a couple of months

    Nice and organized, Gameboy :) That's sexy.

    If I do water (When I get money! :( ) I want to do some UV lighting and UV water dye. :D

    Thaks :) I spent about 70$ for my watter cooling :)

    WB - 25$
    radiator (thats in car cabine radiator, you can buy it as a spare part, mine is from "Yugo" :D ) 15$
    CoolerMaster "Titan" 120mm fan - 12$
    subbmersible watter pump "Atman" 1200l/h - 15$
    tubbing - 3$
    everything else I welded, glued, typed etc. :) Like modding the pump to be externall instead of subbmersible (I probably didnt spell some thing wright). Radiator has 18 pipes (I dont know the word in English) and has 40% more capacity than "BlackIce Pro" and is likely to perform better since it's "tighter" and has more pipes...but it's kinda ugly painted, I will re-paint it soon...UV lightning is cool but I cant find UV cold cathodes in my country and quite like "cold blue" and I have put blue antifreeze coolant in destilled watter and I like how it looks very much :D

    hope you had more luck than my mate (who is a pro welder), he made his own watercooling kit and it worked for 6 months fine, then one day he went to power up and overnight there was a leak, lost everything......

    lol... I can still remember your reaction when you started playing D3!!! lol... the comments on D3... can't remember the exact words... this game is awesome... so atmospheric... lol... and now you complaining about it :rofl: :rofl: - ah well - I like the game tbh... don't have a problem with it... I think HL2 will be even better though... won't make me jump as much as D3 though!

    @zardon: well I have this for a month now, I allready had a leak that made my graphic card wet, but I use destilled watter which is allmost non conductive (conductive at distancies of 0.5mm) so I paniced but nothing happened ;) Now everithing is sealed and I tested it with 12m hight capablle watter pump and nothing leaked (this is 10 times more presure than from my current pump or any pump used for watter cooling).
    Hope nothing bad happens, thanks for concern :)

    that's sexy gameboy....i love the yugo mod ;) :rofl:

    but as for me, when it comes to water(when i go that route...probably my next rig as this one would see little to no benefit) I think i'll stick to premade parts as they are much mroe likely to work...and well...the extra $$ for a nice water cooling setup is LOTS cheaper then the cost of drowning your rig
