    Goodwill had this little buddy. Dunno what it is. All I know is that it is AGP based.

    you sure? if no known damage was done could just need a few caps replaced like ours, usually the ones (5) behind the CPU

    A couple of traces near the LPC and under the motherboard are FUBAR.

    Also the HDD in it died too.

    Anyways,the new system will have softmod and maybe TSOP if I can practice on a dead 1.6 board (which wasn't worth beans)

    EDIT:Well,even though my soldering iron is 40W with lots of time and patience and care,I can do the TSOP unlock points.

    A guy from P3D sent me a "care-parcel".

    All for free! I am a lucky handicrafter!

    After cleaning & polishing the coolers look like new.

    It's not a 1080 rad (u mean the huge ones?). In the parcel were a 80 & a 120mm rad.

    80er Radi 1200 02.jpg

    Thats the 80mm. All together I got now 4x 360mm (2x MagiCool slim 360, 1x XSPC RX360, 1x Airplex EVO 360 (which I will swap against another XSPC RX360), 1x 240mm (crappy Thermaltake), 3x120mm (1x Watercool HTF2 (fine fat rad), 1x Airplex EVO 120, 1x crap out of an Alienware/ Asetek AIO), 1x80mm (MagiCool copper X80).

    My last WC project (long since dismantled ans sold off, but hopefully soon to be replaced) used a water chiller instead of radiators. I got my 2700K up to 5.5 GHz IBT stable with that setup (who needs LN2 when you can get those speeds? :) )

    I just rechecked the case and rad I'm haggling on, and it's an 1800! Hope the guy accepts my offer :)

    I am unemployed at the moment and so I'm always pretty broken. I cannot afford a "Heilea" or another chiller. Maybe somewhen in the future.
    But I'm still having the idea of a peltier-booster. The hot side watercooled, the cold side cooles the water for the system.

    Peltier Booster 1200 01.jpg

    I would arrange the tubes in a way u could switch by 2 valves between normal water-cooling and hi-overclocking (peltier)mode. The modules I've got have about 400W heat pumping power, maybe I need still a bit more, but I will test this with what I got. I'll make it so, that u can switch on one peltier-modul after the other.
    It's not finished yet, but I think in a few days I will be able to test it.

    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.

    Dual 1046er EHEIM - 400er Phobya 800.jpg

    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.

    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.

    DFI NF2 Ultra Infinity 1200.jpg

    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 :)
