    If I had as many engineering skills as I have ambitions I would try something like that.

    These are Eheim 1046. They are not very powerful. Ok, a pump is powerful enough for a watercooling as long as its able to let the water flow, and all my Eheims (I got 3x 1046) were presents from other watercooling-enthusiasts with more money ;). But, if u are in the situation to buy a pump, get a DC12-400 or DC12-260 phobya (these are sold by different "watercooling outfitters" i. e. "EK-Waterblocks", mine is from Phobya), it has much power, its quiet, its compact and it costs not to much (DC12-400 = 44€, DC12-260 = 37€, DC12-220 = 34€). I am using the 400 for about 1 year and no problems till now.

    1 Phobya 400 does more l/h than 2 Eheim 1046 put together. But two 1046 are pretty powerful, too.

    The cooling for the hot side.
    So far, but I'm not happy with it. I destroyed one cover because I accidently mounted it upside down. It's still watertight, and I put some 5min. epoxy on it to be on the safe side, but that is not the problem.
    I don't know why, and I've never seen it before, but the 4 cuplex coolers slow down the flow of the phobya pump for about 50%. That is far to much in my eyes. Maybe there is somewhere dirt in a cooler that I didn't see. However, I disassembled it and I have to think the whole thing over.

    Looks great, I hope you figure out the problems.

    I'm sure they are to power the pelters up.

    Hey debs3759, if you want to spend some money on the best & maybe rarest socket A board, then hit this > http://www.ebay.de/itm/DFI-LANPATRY...aptopMotherboards_CPUs_CA&hash=item233dd98db2
    It's in England. If I had the money, I would buy it immediately!
    I have got a similar board, the DFI NFII Ultra Infinity.

    If you have the chance to get your hands on one of these boards, get it!
    Look at the FSB!

    Super Pi 255MHz DFI.jpg Everest Stresstest DFI 257.7MHz.jpg

    Unfortunately mine stopped working without any cause (in my eyes). I don't know whats wrong with it, maybe I need a new bios-chip (hopefully).

    well for a DFI yep ... for a nForce2 Ultra board : nope, i can get a Asus model for 19.90chf direct buy and 9chf for express delivery (yet i wait on the end since the board is at 1.10chf atm on auction)

    Thanks. I've put that in my watch list for now. not sure yet if I can afford it as I'm talking with someone about a Lian-Li PC71 case and 1800 rad. If he can get it wrapped and shipped cheap enough next week's spare income is going on that :)

    I just got a good deal on a Chieftec Dragon case as well. Gotta watch I don't spend too much before i pay some bills now :)

    Compared with the DFI, the Asus is crap! The DFI is worth 50 times more than the Asus!

    You can get a Lian Li and a rad whenever you want, the DFI is rare, VERY RARE!

    Just a pic >

    I can't buy anything until my disability check comes next week. Pretty sure I can afford both now I've checked my finances - just hope none of the other watchers jumps on it before then :)

    The seller agreed to me buying today and paying on Monday night (the listing says to pay within 2 days, and with 7 watchers I didn't want to lose it!) Thanks Backfire for showing me the link :)

    [​IMG]

    Of course, I now need to find a socket A water block so I can play properly with it (and some cheap socket A processors!)

    Edit, just realised for socket A I will have to use thermal tape (something I recently bought) to attach a generic water block. Should save me a few quid :)

    I wouldn't take tape. There are many socket A waterblocks with special socket A mounting clamps. For example the Aqua Computer "Cuplex" or the old Watercool "Heatkiller". You can get both pretty cheap at ebay.

    Cuplex Nasen-Halterung 1024.jpg Heatkiller Sockel A + Northbridge 1024.jpg

    If you cannot find anything and as I feel a little responsible for the system which will be built with the board, I could lend you the heatkiller & the northbridge-block for as long as it takes till you have your own equipment. Shipping costs would be 8.90Euro/ 7.07pound sterling. I could put a Eheim 1046 and maybe a 120mm rad in parcel, too.
    As processors are the mobile Bartons (FQQ4C) 2500+, 2600+ or certain Thoroughbred B's, the 1700+ and as my favourite the 2700+ worth a try.

    You don't need to feel responsible. I'm trying to build a collection of high end hardware and will always appreciate being shown listings I might miss. My primary intention is to be able to test all my graphics cards on the most powerful systems the work I can build for them, but alongside that I will eventually also bee doing loads of benchmarking on older hardware, just because :)

    It'll be a while before I am set up for doing any testing/benchmarking, but I will keep your offer in mind if I don't find suitable blocks when I can afford them. Thanks :)

    I have quite a pile of watercooling kit from past projects, modern blocks, pumps, reservoirs, etc. I also have a water chiller that I have used instead of radiators (although I will be buying radiators so I can keep a few test systems running together at times).

    ok gotcha! Asus Striker Extreme+ a C2D 3.0ghz (i suspect a E8400/8500 but the 8500 is 3.16) random passive gpu and PCI soundcard and a OCZ HS ... :D 58chf shipping include
    now i need to watch over 2 other auction, 1 Scythe Katana Cu (462 compatible) and a Enermax Coolergiant EG485AX-VHB(w) 480w PSU

    Nasdrovje Wom!

    Peltier Booster 02 800.jpg

    Since the Version with the 4 Cuplex waterblocks somehow didn't perform as I thought (the flow of the pump was reduced by ca. 50% and I couldn't make out any mistake), I'm proceeding step by step, pelt by pelt ;). The pump ist the same, the Phobya DC12-400, as radiators I put two Magicool 360 slim in the circuit.
    With 2 TEC-12715 @ 12V the flow is fine (nearly 100%), the temp of the copper-plate goes down to 0°C, but the condensed water does not freeze. The temp of the cooling water is around 35°C.
    With 3 pelts the flow is as good as with 2. The temps weren't measured yet, maybe I'll test that later.
    To get practical results I have to do some other things first. The "hot" side and the complete outside have to be heat-insulated, and very important, the complete "cold" side, is still missing. I'll have to solder a little heat-exchanger for the system-water. I'm still thinking about how I could realize this part (how can I build it, that it becomes most effective).
    I also have to organize a transformator to give the pelts the full 15.6V they need.
    I'm curious where this whole story will end ;).
