QUOTE (Alias Ethan @ Apr 23 2005, 07:04 AM) It's like my WaveMaster, but... all-around... so beautiful. I'd say the money was well spent. You got a rough timetable of when we can expect some more updates?
hopefully the carbon fiber place will be able to ship wensday or thursday, once that's here's it'll probly take me a few day's to get the side's and front fabricated.......i couldn't find anyone to do my FMIC, so i'll probly buy some tool's next week to do that too.......but i still don't have a date when they expect my water block's in, so i might be stoping that order if i can find a place with them in stock already.

well, it took forever but it's finally done.

the project did take some major changes from the plan, but it was all the vanity stuff.

first i abandoned the intercooler idea, because the case does not have the room to support the water lines and air ducting... i am still fairly convinced, however, that a side mounted fan blown IC on the intake air would net much lower temps and i'm still planing on applying this to my old air cooled system when my brother gets to needing an upgrade for it.

i also had to abandon doing the sides, and front out of carbon fiber - as there is a world wide shortage of carbon fiber and no-one is selling less then 15 yards... way too pricey for me. ...this was the bulk of the time it took to get this all together, waiting to be able to buy only 2-3 yards.

i did take tongs advise there and used a 77 bonaville copper heater core for the main radiator, though the two small back ones are AL, the rest of the system is cooper, so i'll be watching for signs of interaction very closely for a long time.

i was however able to retain all the functionality, here is a link to the pics.

<<<edit>>>other things that changed include the PSU, as it was 20 pin, and the MB needed 24, new one is a 550W clear case PSU with blue LEDs... the ram lights i had both smoked and wouldn't blink within three minutes after i took the pic.. so they went into the garbage... and the green UV dye all settled in the bottom of the big radiator, so the water doesn't glow uless i hold the case upsidedown and shake it ( not a good thing to do BTW, back is seriously sore.)

oh i almost forgot...no OC-ing yet, everything is running stock.

CPU temps haven't exceeded 40 C... where as my air cooled one ran 78C

here is the UT2k4 benchmark pic i took aginst 20 bots with all graphics maxed.



i think i'm ready for 2K7 now

i have to ask, why so many pipes? i cant follow your loop, nor can i figure out the reason for 4 pipes exiting the case.

when i was looking at water blocks, radiators, etc. i realy liked the danger den blocks...the CPU block they had for my processor had 3 outlets. then the disk drive resivuar also had three.. so when i went to put this all together in my head, i imagined a system that had a radaitor before each of the three chips i was putting blocks on (CPU, GPU, and north ridge).



the two small radiators i bought were 3/8" ID and the rest of the system was 1/2" ID; mistake of being a watercooling noob... because there was already 3 hoses comeing off of the CPU, and the other two chips are close together i didn't have much room to work with... so instead i glued the reducers to holes i drilled through the back - and mounted the back radiators backwards so the inlets were pointed out, and ran the 3/8's tubeing outside of the case.

the water flow goes from the resivuar, to the large radiator, - to the pump, - then to the cpu.

one path from the cpu goes to a reducer, to one of the back radiators, to another reducer, to the north ridge, then back to the res.

the other path from the CPU goes to another reducer, to the other radiator in the back, back to a reducer, then to the GPU, then up to the res.

i am thinking about adding another resivuar though, as it's holding about 1 gallon of water in the system, and the pump runs 300 GPH.. the long tube from the radiator to the pump is sucking thin... if i do this, then the long hose going through the middle will be moved up in the front and make it a little less messy.
