    Phase can go subzero this chiller can "only" go down to 4C.

    Nice rig but for that money i'd have gone phase, you could've gotten a real nice setup. I spent about $800 on my first WC rig year's back (many years lol) so i can understand the "novelty" of it all but after you stop and think, did i really need that? Could i not have achieved the same or better with less? Just my $0.02 don't let me stop you from modding it's your PC and your money, enjoy it :toast:

    Who says I'm not doing phase?:nutkick:
    I've tried to run phase on a i7 920 with -20C for a week with what I thought was good insulation but it shut down due too condensation and ice, so been there done that etc..
    I'm running my rigs with 100% cpu load 24/7 and then water is the way to go, that's just my opinion. Modding, building and OCing is a hobby and I've got the money for it.:toast:

    Thats a nice setup mydog.

    But still $800 on the CPU alone is kinda crazy :laugh: But possible...

    I'll see your :nutkick: and raise you :nutkick::nutkick: :laugh: I guess for 24/7 water is the way to go as 24/7 phase can be tricky, as you already know. Hope you didn't lose any hardware?

    Guess i got to many hobbies, need to spread the cash around lol Between home audio/video, music media, PC's, car's and R/C car's i get REAL broke, REAL fast :roll:

    Maybe i should feed a kid in Africa for a year instead?

    Yep 120 usd fittins (t line, fill port, valve, drain line, angle, rotary and barbs)
    200 pump + res (is that koolance acetal thingy, bummer i got rev 1.3 and 2.0 just released, i almost dup bought)
    100 rad
    60 block
    30 tubes
    100 shipping (yep, check location)
    100 fans
    misc things $xx

    still have to buy mobo and vga blocks, but i need to get a new setup first i won't spend that money on a X58 and a 580.
    And later i may go compression i got 1/2 barbs over 7/16 tubing for some, compression for cpu only since it shows.
    If all goes well this year i graduate so my first paycheck will be a cosmos II and more rads and fittins. Im not considering the haswell chiller, its to fugly.

    Just lost an R2E but I got a good friend that owns the local HW-shop so ... you get the rest.(BTW it was his phase and insulation job:D)

    Hobbies is good to have but I don't have time for so many these days, to much work, so I'm left with PC's, soccer and my family(got a grandson 2 yrs old soon to be, man I'm old:cry:)

    If you can I it's a good thing to do and doesn't cost that much either, you'll be amazed how much $50 a month is over there.:)

    I'll take some more when I get my GPU:D

    I just took the corsair ram back out and sent to newegg for a refund. Rocking the Samsung 30NM DDR3 @ 2200Mhz w/1.5v @ 9-10-10-28. Will fine tune later on for tighter timings xD

    I knew there had to be m04r to it! I feel for my south american brother's, they have been killing you guy's with shipping/import taxxes fee's for year's!

    Lucky you have a friend in that posistion and the mistake was his! Still suck's but could alway's be worse. Without hobbies i think i would be more crazy lol Help's to keep my mind clear & calm (for the most part) I've been semi retired for the last 5yrs (not by choice) no wife, no kid's (that i know of), no grand kid's. 1 niece (6mths) and 1 nephew (8yrs) only. Don't really have many responsibilities other than cost of living. I would donate but i think they steal too much money from the charities, i would rather go there and help them. People been sending aid to Africa for more than 30yrs and not much has changed, so sad really. Beautifull country, good people, bad situation (corrupt government's). Just think up until mid '90's they still had the Apartheid in south africa and civil war is constant. The world is messed up, we're all brother's & sister's.

    I know the shipping is expensive but still is loads cheaper than any offering here, and since no one i know sells it, he who does would stab me excessively.
    I get better service in the US and all around i prefer so send money there.
    So that shipping is not that bad at all. Also i divided in 2 packages.
