    I've got a fine CD for DFI-boards, too. It's uploading at the moment. Just burn the .iso on a cd and start from cd. > http://www.file-upload.net/download-9407678/V11.1.1.iso.html

    I've put some NF7-S files together (different mod. Bios, tweaker, ...) > http://www.file-upload.net/download-9407581/NF7-S.rar.html

    Hehe ... Ok, let me explain. The V1 was a flying bomb with a ramjet-engine. It was not very fast and could be intercepted by fast allied planes (like the Spitfire, the american P51 Mustang, P38, P47, ...) just by tipping a wing on the V1 wing. The V2 was a real rocket with supersonic speed and...

    I count the 2 DFI's as one ;). A clear point is, I forgot the AN7. That was maybe, I never had the opportunity to find one at the right price. I always have to look after the money, so some wishes remain wishes ... .

    The NF7-S Rev.2.0 is the second best socket A motherboard ever built. My opinion ;). I'm really a fan of the NF7-S. I've had one back in 2003, and the Abit was the first board I thought of when I deceided to build a nostalgic-system. As it was the board in my main-system I was pretty lucky with...

    Nasdrovje Wom! Since the Version with the 4 Cuplex waterblocks somehow didn't perform as I thought (the flow of the pump was reduced by ca. 50% and I couldn't make out any mistake), I'm proceeding step by step, pelt by pelt ;). The pump ist the same, the Phobya DC12-400, as radiators I put...

    I wouldn't take tape. There are many socket A waterblocks with special socket A mounting clamps. For example the Aqua Computer "Cuplex" or the old Watercool "Heatkiller". You can get both pretty cheap at ebay. If you cannot find anything and as I feel a little responsible for the system...

    Compared with the DFI, the Asus is crap! The DFI is worth 50 times more than the Asus! You can get a Lian Li and a rad whenever you want, the DFI is rare, VERY RARE! Just a pic >

    Hey debs3759, if you want to spend some money on the best & maybe rarest socket A board, then hit this > http://www.ebay.de/itm/DFI-LANPATRY-NF-II-ULTRA-B-400-FSB-SOCKET-A-462-MOTHERBOARD-/151361523122?pt=UK_Computing_LaptopMotherboards_CPUs_CA&hash=item233dd98db2 It's in England. If I had the...

    The cooling for the hot side. So far, but I'm not happy with it. I destroyed one cover because I accidently mounted it upside down. It's still watertight, and I put some 5min. epoxy on it to be on the safe side, but that is not the problem. I don't know why, and I've never seen it before, but...

    These are Eheim 1046. They are not very powerful. Ok, a pump is powerful enough for a watercooling as long as its able to let the water flow, and all my Eheims (I got 3x 1046) were presents from other watercooling-enthusiasts with more money ;). But, if u are in the situation to buy a pump, get...

    I am unemployed at the moment and so I'm always pretty broken. I cannot afford a "Heilea" or another chiller. Maybe somewhen in the future. But I'm still having the idea of a peltier-booster. The hot side watercooled, the cold side cooles the water for the system. I would arrange the tubes...

    It's not a 1080 rad (u mean the huge ones?). In the parcel were a 80 & a 120mm rad. Thats the 80mm. All together I got now 4x 360mm (2x MagiCool slim 360, 1x XSPC RX360, 1x Airplex EVO 360 (which I will swap against another XSPC RX360), 1x 240mm (crappy Thermaltake), 3x120mm (1x Watercool...

    A guy from P3D sent me a "care-parcel". All for free! I am a lucky handicrafter! After cleaning & polishing the coolers look like new.
