    just to keep some you guys intrested and because a P-log is nothing without pics....

    The rad is prepped for a fresh coat of paint. all oil and fingerprints and whatever else maybe on it has been cleaned off and the pics really can't show how clean and how shinny this is. almost makes me not want to paint it flat black...

    i only got the front rivets drilled out and the bottom ones will finish up getting the drive bays out of there tomorrow after school. Don't mind the messed up paint job. I didn't notice it was that bad but that doesn't matter because its coming out anyways then when all the cutting is done i will be giving it a much needed fresh paint job (sorry for bad pic was in a hurry)

    thanks :toast:
    too bad this rad isn't going to stay in the loop very long till it gets replaced by something like a DD BIX 120.2 or a Swiftech 120.2 rad. reason for wanting to change it is because i don't want to run mixed metals for long.I didn't think about having mixed metals when i bought the rad all i saw was a good deal :ohwell: it will atleast get me started and hold me over till i get the extra $$

    also i won't get much if even anything done tomorrow. I have to study for OGT's and have alot of other stuff to do..My day will be
    get home at 3pm, leave at 5pm get back at 10pm study alittle, get some zzz's then start the day all over again :banghead:

    My pump just went out today (so they say) also my block just went out today so i'm just taking things slow. I can get the case done and have the tube cut and start leak testing outside of the case without fans :) I think i will let the loop run till i get everything that way if its going to leak it should in that time.

    That sounds good. I'm desperate to start my new log. I had to stop the one I had going too many things changed. I'm going to be using the case for my next project which will be another cruncher.

    Yeah just be patient bro. It's gonna be another i7, looking for a black/red theme without the expense of a classy since it'll be just a cruncher. Thinking Foxconn.

    the Foxconn is decent. How about a Rampage II Gene its somewhat red/black but mostly all black (the reason i am making everything black in my rig.

    here is a newegg link
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131371

    I think its a decent price and its the one that i use and its a hell of a board and it uses the good socket not the Foxconn socket (that have problems with 1156 but don't think they are bad with 1366)

    Meh, it has a bit too much blue for my liking :( I am considering a classy, but to do the log and get a cruncher I don't think a classy is needed. Just doesn't justify the cost IMO.

    I had a dream when i feel asleep in class about this today and i started wondering how the fuck i am going to hide all of my wires when i used to tuck them behind the HDD bay :banghead:
    So anyone have some idea's?

    Also will a 500w OCZ PSU power my rig? If so i can use the modX and cut down on how many cables i have to deal with
