    Hah! I'm running 14.2! Well, that's certainly a better excuse than my previous one of "I'm too lazy to update".

    I had to Google Shemp :oops:


    Well my fun troubles continue....

    Stayed home today from work since I'm not feeling great, and after heating up some awesome pasta figoli soup my mom had made, I was walking back to my pc's and noticed a lovely dark red liquid running from my pc toward the wall. Yes, my main pc sprung a leak and the EK blood red coolant was spreading across the floor, so it's down for the count for now. The res got a little crack in the bottom :banghead:

    So I need to replace the res now. :shadedshu: I think it's my own fault too. Yesterday I was blowing out some fans and cleaning fan filters, and I think I tightened the res a tad after I bumped it. Anyway, kind of sucks.


    On the bright side, I didn't have any bsod's all night, and the res was still half full and I shut down the pc myself so no hardware damage

    One of the reasons I prefer distilled water....no mess. Sorry to hear about your troubles with the rig :(

    I use one side of my rad as the reservoir.... Only use an extended piece of clear tubing (capped at the end) as a sight glass/fill port. It's been trouble free so far and if I ever get around to putting a block on the cpu, I'll try to go w/o a reservoir again. :)

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Sorry to hear manofthem, hope you get it fixed up.

    My computer was off when I got back from work today. 2nd time it's happened since I started folding; Hopefully the power just went out for a minute or something like that. I'll keep an eye on it...

    Thanks gents. I have an old crappy dual-bay res I can try to hook up again to get it going again, at least til I can replace the current cylinder res, but it means reworking some tubing and fittings. It sucks because I was putting off redoing my rig til I got the other 290 ready for cfx/folding in my main rig, but now I think I'm kind of forced to do it now since it's going to be down.

    Now sure what I'll do exactly. After my blunder, we went to see Godzilla again :D, and I'll reevaluate when I get back ;)

    At least guys are making me smile and laugh while I look for replacement parts, more money down the drain... almost literally. Get it, water cooling.. liquid.. flush... down the drain? :laugh:

    Oh boy, it's been a long day for a day of no work :rolleyes:



    I don't suppose anyone has a tube res they don't need or want anymore.... ;)

    I just use my radiator. I don't need no res! I also have a huge 80mm thick radiator where a swiftech microres can fit inside of it. It is a pain to fill though.

    My 7970 is running on a single 140mm x 55mm EK Coolstream XTC- runs great and it was super easy to fill due to having it setup horizontal in the 5.25" bays and the pump appr. 4" under it.

    I really don't like the build quality of any of the reservoirs they make now. I want to design/make my own one of these days and I want it to be practically indestructible! :D

    Tell me about it. The EK Res250 I had was crap. A while back, it developed several cracks in the bottom threads and started leaking, so I flipped it upside down instead of getting a new one. Now the bottom cracked pretty good, and now it's just trash. Just ordered a Bitspower one and i'm sure it'll be trash too, since it was on the cheaper side. :oops:

    I have to do a beg in here now.... I need to be able to fold for the foreseeable future.... for my mother who passed away.. and my father, both from cancer. My folding 480 will detonate soon, and all I have is a 480 left in my main box.
    I need keplers bad. I need a good deal on a 680 or a 770 for my main box. I will pay! I may need to make 2 payments, but I'll try for one. Then I need folding cards. 660s, whatever, I don't care. Someone need an almost brand new 480 under warranty? Pointless thing....

    Are you opposed to AMD cards? They are selling pretty cheap nowadays and maybe we could try to figure out something for you, maybe a good deal somehow.

    Also, I'm sorry for your loss! Though painful, it's a very good motivation for us to keep folding/crunching, as we hope to see an end to all this crap!!! :)

    Quick question: Is it normal to take a "seemingly" long time to resume folding after resuming from a pause? Every time I resume after a pause it seems to takequite a while, and I just wanted to make sure that's normal. Thanks :)
