    sorry, no.
    My business guys keep telling me to stop sharing stuff, so I can only show what is already online.

    Turbulence also reduces flow and adds to aeration.

    i'm just curious cuz you said :

    to me it just look's like the top has offset barb's (one higher than the other) vs having directional channel's in the top a la Dtek GFX

    bussiness guy's hehehe :respect:

    hey this is a bit of a silly question... but why is watercooling "naturally aspired"? surely air is more natural to a cpu than water...

    I understand natural aspiration in car engines (air vs turbo / supercharger)... just wondering why its called natural aspiration for watercooling a cpu.

    Yeah they do come in handy for your water cooled PC sometimes.

    The problem with impingement style blocks is they need more pressure and place a LARGE restriction on flow.

    And with the advent with Single,dual and quad cores and the growth of the GPU as well pointing a high speed stream at the center of the block dosent work as well as before when the storm was king, not to mention with so many different types of cores and each one needing its own restricter it is just too complicated for the companies to make 1 block that works well on all stuff.

    funny cuz these method's seem to be doing quite well for Dtek + EK (to name a few)

    i'd still like to see another pick of your top to see if it has directional channel's or merely just offset barb's

    why you gettin' your panties in a bunch?

    all i asked for is another pik of the top to see the inside! you're talkin' like Dtek swiped the idea from you so i wanna see if you were the originator or not.

    i don't need to post anything to validate myself, my REAL penis is big enough.

    edit : bugging YOU! LOL you're hillarious

    I do have a Thermaltake Armor case and I do believe it has two holes in the back of the case to run tubes out of. I dont have any rubber things to put over the holes though to keep it from puncturing the tubes.

    Since I have a 9800GTX and want to keep costs minimal but still with the best performance, what would you recommend for the GTX? If I went with a small waterblock, I would need ramsinks correct?

    For some reason watercooling confuses the hell out of me. Any way you guys can compile lists on my water cooling thread here?

    Keep cost down?

    Ok here is a list then

    DD - 9800GTX $124.95
    1/2
    Black Ice GTX120 $53.95 1/2
    Copper TDX Block for Intel 775 Processors $52.95 1/2
    DD12V-D5 Pump Fixed Speed by Laing $76.95
    Danger Den Dual 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir $31.95

    Subtotal: $340.75
    Then you could use their tubing or the cheap stuff at lowes. You can also make your own water mix to save another 40 dollars.

    I honestly don't see a problem with this setup. However, I wouldn't put 1 rad behind another inside the PC Case. You will pull warm air from the 1st rad into the 2nd rad. Post some pics when you get things up and running :toast:

    I can't wait to see how the two rads run tied together like that.

    I smell a FAIL when it comes to hooking the rads up to water in your configuration unless one of the rads is rotated 90*. The fans inbetween will not allow enough room to get the hoses in and connected!

    Just a heads up b4 you finalize the plan!

    Im no big fan of 90 deg bends but this should fix the clearance prob
    http://www.petrastechshop.com/3np1odthhoba1.html

    so would these
    http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=680

    and if you rotated 1 rad 180 deg fron the other (1 with hoses on the top and one with hoses on the bottom it should work)

    I was leaning in the direction of laying one on its side and one standing as usual. That will leave 2 barbs up top and two on the side, so the actual "heads" dont clash! Should be able to continue using straight fittings!
