    Thanks. :toast:

    I'm quite glad at the sset up. Made sure the CPU was first, ran threw another rad (thanks Damulta!) and even after about 4 feet more tubing, the CPU temps are the same, but everything else is lower!

    What is before the CPU? Rad, res, or pump?

    @ CS

    those temps are not bad at all, and your rad is just as bad as mine man. Imma have my buddy bring the compressor over again on the weekend. This time I'm taking the rig outside. I was coughing for two weeks after the last dusting of the rig. I did it inside my damn room! :eek:

    Good question (sometimes I forget and need to be reminded not everyone has been building things for such a long time as me)

    blow REALLY REALLY hard:roll:......If that fails I take it to my local tire shop and they fill it for free whenever I need.
    Any gas station or friend with a compressor can fill it too..

    It lasts about as long as 50 cans of compressed air and has a ton more pressure as well. They make 10 gallon ones (what I use) and smaller ones too.

    you are a genius, or we just don't think too good. That is indeed a very good idea man. I will def. do this when I have a bit of spare cash. I just got the bad news today when I cranked my a/c in the car and noticed it was cool enough to keep me almost sweat free. Usually not good, my a/c in the car was freezing!! automotive a/c is usually not a cheap fix!

    THis looks like a good part to brag about when I lived in Alaska for 4 1/2 years. That was great! Internet bandwidth sucked... but other than that...

    Dont rush it man! Even though Ohio is getting killed with hot days these past couple weeks, it's been a while since we've had a hotter than expected summer. :p

    really nice and relaxing man!!!

    still have 3 days left.... I've been travelling to work over the last week, but kept the beach house for wife and kid, as they seemed so happy. It would be selfish of me to bring them back just for my work... so I put up with driving back and forth from the seaside to work and back. Now I have my last weekend to enjoy the sea and sun!

    I 'll probably start a thread with summer pics on moday!:toast:

    Well I don't live there now so now I get to be jealous of myself :p

    Bur hey... If I were still up there I wouldn't be into modding, or at least not as much. Too many other things to do up there and shipping would be way too expensive.

    Look up. Look way up.
    Wait a minute...I'm not a richie and I've got 2 ACs!! I need 2 because the first one is only 5,000 BTU which is not nearly enough for my 1 bedroom apt. So my building manager gave me the second (also 5,000 BTU) for free and that works out perfect with electricity included in my apt. rent and my rig idles at 29 C (right now running 2.9Ghz @ 1.3v) and I agree with JrRacinFan.....DON'T RUSH IT!!!! :p

    That's right...hasn't it been a cool summer until August hit? I'm just about 100 miles north of you in London, Ontario. Cheers man!! I'm sure we'll have some scorchers well into September. :rockout:

    The thing is on wheels for crying out loud!!!!! :laugh: Moar pics CS I love all the fans!! :toast:

    wtf? it was 109 here the other day, and a cpl weeks ago it was 115. If it gets below 100 we consider it cool. It usually gets down to 92 at night.
    Oh yeah, and until I got a new car Wednesday, I didn't have ac in my car.

    I have a plan, we all need to get together and move to each others houses for the cool weather seasons.
    Us southern guys need to go hang out with you northern guys during summer and when you northern guys get frozen during winter you come hang out with us southern guys.
    Screw Arizona:laugh:

    I spend a couple years hanging out in Mexico/South America and on the way back I drove through Tucson, Phoenix and couldnt believe how hot it was, there were practically no one on the streets.

    Reno can get in the 100s but it is nothing like Ariz....
