    This thing was easy to mount up until the fans and then it was such a pain in the ass. The black plastic "butt plugs" on the fan retaining wire kept popping out of the holes.


    edit: this phantek PH TC12DX gives me 25*C idle. Nice!

    edit2: 55*C Load under p95!! Woo!

    My "expert" opinion is that after 5-6 years of heating up and cooling down the PCB slowly warped, then came in contact with a part of the motor. Something shorted out... burning..burning... erocker's playing a game and smells bad burny stuff, see's smoke! Turns off computer. The PSU is fine since it didn't notice that the pump was burning, it just kept feeding it voltage like a good little PSU should. :D

    Yarr harr! Curse of the 900D!

    MOAR 120x38MM THICK FANS hehehehe

    the led light strip above the fans

    shows the two top exhaust fans


    The big fans have dropped my 7970 from 75*C in valley benchmark to 64*C. They make a lot of noise though haha.

    The additional top fans also dropped my CPU temp to 62 on Intel Burn Test, which is stellar since thats a more intensive operation than prime 95.

    edit: undervolting this sonuvabitch, so far below 1 volt, <60*C, and passing IBT.

    Hard to find a matching block since they were replaced by the "circle" version and DOM won't sell me his.

    Well, definitely need to get the CPU and 2nd GPU under water.

    But glad you got it going for now.

    Honestly, with new cards coming at the end of the year, I don't think I'm going to bother putting the 2nd card under water unless I can find a really good deal on a block. New pump is on the way for my CPU. :)

    EDIT: Nevermind, it was the DCII blocks.

    I am undervolting the shit out of this xeon. I am down to .888v (-.14 offset) and its still passing IBT on very high.

    edit: finally crashed at -.190v off set, got to the 3rd loop of standard IBT and rebooted.

    I am running -.165v offset 20 loops of IBT Max. I think if it passes that I am golden.

    is it easy to watercool ur pc? I always wanted to do it, but would only use air cooler in case of bracket leakage. I think if I considerded the first time I would pay somooen to do it so Its under warranty and I can have peace of mind. and then if that build worked out after say 3-6 months then I could easily do it myself, but what do you think?

    looks like water cooling people should add smoke detectors to their things to put in XD


    not sure how PCBs can warp from thermal stress XD

    Went to Best Buy today for some DVDs and walked away with a reference GTX 660ti.
    I have to say that I am completely impressed by the packaging of the card. The black and green box was just so attractive I couldnt resist.

    A couple money shots now that I finished my sleeving, although it looks like I'll have to work on my hdd fan, those stick out like a sore thumb. I put it in as an experiment, but it works so well it became permanent.
