    It seems like this is the right place to post them? Dedicated thread or something like that? :banghead:

    Arrakis+9 - Great watercooling setup. Way to complicated for me, but it looks great..

    Arrakis, you could probably get those Sammy's to 2400 if you put them in the red slots...

    It's probably also the source of instability.

    Many times, installing DIMMs into the other slots results in no boot at least that's the case in my testing.

    Well everything worked for 5 minutes or so got into the OS and installed the video drivers shortly after the system shorted and turned off could not get it back up and running - even yanked it out of the case and benched it with the stock cooler and nothing else hooked up to see if i could get it into the bios. still nothing so i yanked out my trusty intel board and loaded up the processor and ram on that it will boot just fine but no video at all. so being broke and not able to buy anything to fix it its going to have to go in the corrner of my closet for now and no more gaming sadly :(

    I think it has to do with his video card with a bad capacitor.

    Looking at your setup im not a specialist but maybe the videocard got shorted from the cooler. That could explain you had problems with it. Then tremove everything and put it on air cooling only. Test your psu..does it work ?Seems like a blown video card.

    Actually i went and tested everything out, seems i blew up the processor don't even know how that is remotely possible seeing as how everything else works just fine. really makes me wish i hadn't lapped the damn thing but it ran soooo hot before i did it. so im back were i started using an old netburst processor with 768mb of ram on xp home wooo! its so fast :shadedshu

    This one was not easy to build in but it's been really rewarding!

    I look forward to my next build... I'm wondering about doing away with the water cooling side of things and perhaps just getting a chiller instead... Might be able to use a smaller case then :D :laugh:
