Motherboard Side


Pump, Drives and PSU side.


What the outside of the case looks like, minus the right hand door in this picture, I took it off, and have misplaced it somewhere. /blush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blush.gif' />


My dog, giving his approval. /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Things still to do:

1) Find right hand door and re-attach.
2) Finalise overclock.
3) Tidy Wires
4) Buy replacement 120.2 Rad.
5) Apply more clear coat to the case. Three cans wasnt enough and has left that "orange peel" look. /sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />

Lol.....just notised I've forgotten to put the Cold Cathodes back in whenever I took the pics. So, that as well....then Pics when its on.

Still to get some "money shots" of the PC when its switched on, but I'll add those when I finish off the above tasks, might do it this weekend, if I don't play BF2 too much.

The PC in its current incarnation (as in the pics) is:

AMD A64 3000+ @ 2.4 Ghz - 1.6v (Iv have a DTR....bit it doesnt like using a CPC of 2, and the RAM overclock isnt finalised yet)
DFI Lanparty UT 250GB NF3 HT: 240Mhz
Bios: 2005/05/04 (From DFI Site)
GEiL Ultra Platinum PC3500 (2x512MB) (At stock using 9/10 divider becuase I am completely unsure of Chip type. Apparently so is GeIL - If anyone could help me identify the chip type I'd very much appreciate it.)
1x Hitachi Deskstar 120GB IDE HDD
1x Hitachi Deskstar 80GB IDE HDD
1x Lite-ON DVD-RW 4x
Leadtek Winfast A400 6800nu 128MB (Still Fiddling with the O/C)
Jeantech 500W PSU
Audugy LS Sound Card (Which is broken I think....sounds all crackly...Spilt water on it when leak testing see.....it hasnt been the same since)
Win XP Pro SP2 Stripped Edition. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

Its far from finished, and being a PC of mine it probably never will be (constantly change the hardware about) .... incidently I had to remove the old SCSI disk I was using for the Page File, as I couldnt find the drivers again for the SCSI controller card. /sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /> And I've just noticed I still havent wired the pump up to the 12v kettle connector you can see above the PSU in the second pic.....mostly because I havnt got a flat headed screwdriver small enough yet.

Er, is the case twice the width of a normal ATX, with the PSU on the other side ?

That's one wide machine ! ! !

Those water pipes look huge in the picture. What diameter are they ? What watercooling system are you using ? What does the front panel look like ?

Have you considered using MCT-40 non-conductive additive to your coolant so if/when you leak, there are no shorts ?

Yeah....its about the same size as 2 normal ATX cases strapped together. Unfortunately its also made of steel I think, not aluminium, so it does indeed weigh a ton.

Also the reason why I havent any pictures of it while its switched on...theres no room around it, except at the front, for me to shove a camera.

They're 1/2" Inner Diameter pipes, bought from B&Q (a large hardware store in the UK) cheaper than Danger Den pipes at any rate.

The System isnt any specific kit, its just bits from here and there. The radiator is a 120.1 Danger Den Heater core, with a rather crap acrylic fan shroud attached to it, The pump I've forgotten the make, but pumps 1800LPH if I remember correctly. I'll be replacing that shortly qwith a less noisy one (mine vibrates a lot) probably the Danger Den DDC-12V, and the resevoir is a Danger Den Dual 3 1/2" Floppy Bay Reservoir, which I'm considering replacing with one of those rather cool looking tube like resevoirs, like the ThermoChill "ThermoTube", and mount it on top of the case for easy access.

No, not really. Seems like a waste of cash to me when Distilled Water is so cheap. Besides shorts = easier way to get component upgrades past the significant other. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

Its a Leadtek 6800, comes with one massive copper cooler attached to it. It does look rather big to be honest, and its certainly a monster in comparison to my old 6600GT. Dunno why is so big....it just is. /unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' />

Lol....yeah, you'd have a [content edited] hard time trying to steal it. As well as that you need a key to get inside the case, or een at the DVD drives in the first place. /rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' />

The tubing is ok, but I've only got a crappy fan on the radiator at the minute, so temps are about 38*C load. I'll be replacing that with a Vantec fan later on today though, hopefully that'll drop the temps a bit.

As to the case its a Yeong Yang Server Cube Case- YY-0430' ">http://www.yeongyang.com/products/yy0420-0430.htm. Bought it off Ebay several months ago.

Cheers. Just ordered a few new parts, as of the weekend the rig will be as follows:

AMD Opteron 148
DFI NF3 Ultra-D (Soc. 939)
G.Skill PC4400 (2x512MB) (TCCD)
Leadtek 6800nu (12x Pipes, 6x VS)

Hopefully I'll be able to get it above 3Ghz.
