    I am a three-time member of the 4Ghz club :toast:

    All of those OCs (Pentium 4 4.2Ghz, Core i7 920 at 4.2Ghz, Q9650 at 4Ghz) were on air. I just ordered (Last sat, waiting for the order from Sidewinder Computers to be processed) a massive WC setup for my i7 975 (MCR320+MCR220+MCP655+1/2" Tygon tubing as the basis), with the goal to hit 4.5Ghz. I got the thing to POST at 4.7Ghz before, but at 1.4v the temps on the D0 Bloomfield are too high for any air cooler.

    Hmm. Drop me a PM with the pricing for the pump, I might be interested. Just take the shipping into account (I am in Israel).

    Oh crap, I totally forgot you live in Israel. I no longer ship internationally sorry.:eek: It's nothing against you of course, I just a couple of bad experiences with international shipping and I will never do it again.:ohwell: So nevermind...my bad.

    I have a Zero 2. The only thing half-way significant about it is that it has a Scythe Mugen-2. XD

    Sadly, there's nothing to show off. It's just a Zero 2 with stuff in it. :roll:

    Update........

    I am going to have to delay my wc'ing project again due to low funds, but I wanted to get rid of that Zalman cooler. I got this v8 for a great deal (had issue's with the seller though :shadedshu) and it dropped my temps from 51c to 45c both @100% load. I also added a ram cooler I had laying around.:rolleyes: The cable management is also very bad, I'm not not going to deal with it until the "final build" is ready. This is just ATM:p

    Awesome bro! :toast: --- Never realized the inside of your case was orange ;)

    Let me know if you need some WC parts -- I've got a cpu block (danger den mc-tdx) and a few other odds and ends laying around.

    wow, I've always loved the looks of the V8, but I'm not sure it was the best choice right now. Again you say your cable management is bad ¬¬, you know my opinion about it...
    BTW you should update your system specs, because I can no longer see the two EVGA nvidia GPUs (am I wrong or is that a 5850?)

    ps: show us all your wc'ing when you're done;)

    I know, i know that V8 is not the top choice of air coolers in mind, but I got it for only 30 bucks. It's a GTX285, I pulled the 9600gt out because the 285 can handle the performance and physics just fine and thought the card was just creating unwanted heat.:rolleyes: Thanks for the system specs reminder and trust me when my wc'ing is finished it will be all over the forums.;)

    Hey guys, selling my i7 920, check my fs thread. Also, if it sells, im going to perform the fan controller mod and have it modded into the front of the case :)

    so someone buy it so they can see what im going to do.

    Welcome to the club Gas2100!:toast:

    I like the Lexa S case because it looks clean but not too over the top freakish looking.;) My brother collects hotwheels too, but his are all stored in boxes.

    some really thin aluminum coverd in 3 inch wide black electrical tape to prevent any possibility of conductivity measured and cut it..thinking of putting a fan into the cover to blow air up into the case..not sure yet tho..hmm
