well luckly i had my first deployment to iraqs pictures on photobucket but all other ones are gone
someone learned his lessons ;-)
My 5850 finally arrived, just picked it up. Over 300 pages of glory from you guys, cannot wait till I can post some pics of my own. Ordered 24 November 2009 ...
The new mobo installed and all rads moved into the case, with the dual-rad up front and the single rad up on the top. Way less clutter. Also waiting for my six Scythe Kamakaze 120mm blue led fans. Each has a speed controller with it and I'm gonna mod one of the drive bay covers to hold them all (Or at least the four for the front rad push-pull fans, the other two will be on the top rad and the rear exhaust, dunno yet if I'll mod those to the front, or use the expansion slot mounting for the speed controllers the fans come with).
I like how you re-arranged the pipes. looks neater : ]
Still think you should change the fan grill on the side to something with a bit more air flow, it also makes it much louder having that thing infront of the fan.
I think it was you that I suggested that before anyways.
I don't think it was me, or at least I missed it somehow. You're quite right, of course, and I actually have a few low-restriction fan grills around. Lemme try and fit one of those here.
Looking alot better yukikaze maybe some pics with light to see how you mounted the rads and stuff??
Ask, and you shall receive !
The top rad:
The front rad (It was really hard to get the camera positioned so you'd see something, the tubing connects to the top of the rad):
And here's the swapped fan grill, indeed much better:
those rads look very... aluminum...
Those rads are very crappy. It is a TT BigWater 745, after all (But it was damned cheap, and it was my practice run with WC...plus it actually does a pretty good job). The rads have copper piping and aluminum fins.
ah I see... hey if it does the job, then it does the job .
My experience is that fans matter more than rads anyways.

once again im back i want to show off my new set up of my watercooling please let me know which are better.. please comment... here my previous set up:
the old one:
the new set up:
i put the rad outside the casing....
liked the old setup better, the new looks messy imo, but good you got that tube all the way on the res
thanks for that....
Same here. The older one was neater.
but if you could put something underneath the pump and res to get them in same height, that would look good i'd say, it just looks like its been thrown in there, (no offense)
OK ive got more major problems! if loosing ALL my data wasn't enought, I called seagate today to setup an RMA and we got through the process of setting everything up until she took down my serial number. turns out this drive came in one of seagates external enclosures and since i dont have that the warranty is VOID. i was like WTF? i bought it internal. So the lady had me take a picture of the hard drive and email it to her. im still waiting on her response.
Some skanky shops do stuff like that... Where did you get the drive?
i got it from a guy selling them on hard forums. his thread said they were brand new. i already got one drive from him and it started to give me a bad smart status so i told him about it and he was nice enough to ship me a drive, let me copy all my stuff to it then ship the bad one back. i sent him a messege on hard and hopfully he can help me out again.
well just got off the phone with seagate after they checked the picture and they told me the drive doesnt have a warranty without the outer parts so im screwed.
time to hit up ebay for an enclosure maybe? Did they at least tell you what kind of enclosure it came out of?
ok ok... like this? much better? what you think guys?
hope you like it..
