To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Intel C2D E6600@3.42GHz /ADATA@2GB_360MHz /ASUS Commando / Home made WC with ZALMAN CNP9500 /Sparkle 7950GT@512mb

Mods:
Home+hand made watercooler with ZALMAN CNP9500 /2x80mm LED fan /RAM fan(Pentium 3 HSF) /a bit cable mangement

I've cut out the heat pipe from CNP9500 near the base of the copper base. Rebending and reshpaing 6 copper pipes into curves to match the orginal size and shape of CNP9500. Aluminuim car oil radiator 400x185x20(LxWxH). Industry used high presure air compressor tube. LG fridge ice box containor used for water tank(4Litres). CAR raditator coolant and lots of soldiering, its pretty hard to soldier the copper pipes together because one is soldier but then the others melts. I used a water feature pump which produces 1000LPM@20w useing 240V

Superb idea very nicely put into practice. 9 from me.
Would be interesting to see what temps you are getting from it.

Thanks for the conment.

It redue the temperature by 20*C : oc'ed 380x9=3420
idle=37*C
load=50*C
BEFORE the moding using ZLAMAN 9500: oc'ed 380x9=3420
idle=48~52*C
load=68*C

ALL the temp is at a room temperature of 30*C

I gave you a 9 as well. That's an impressive amount of custom work you did there. Good job. Just imagine how low you could get the temps if you mounted a couple of fans to the oil cooler.

I am not sure but the raditator not that warm maybe 3~7*C higher than the room temp.

my AMD X2 5200+ watercooled runs @ around 18-20'c idle and upto a max of 35'c at full load.

It is overclocked from 2.6Ghz to 3Ghz @ 1.45v though.

That's some nice work, I also like your use of that old P3 fan for the memory chips. If after all that modding and you have no leaks I give you a 10,

very nice modding there. im sure a lot of thought and effort has been put in to it. i gave you a 9 too :) however, the temps you are getting could be bettered by high quality *normal* watercooling.
then again, you would have to spend a bomb for any better, so well done!

Thank you for the comments. You guys must not forget the result are compared use the orginial ZALMAN CNP9500 not the intel stock cooler.

very nice modding there. im sure a lot of thought and effort has been put in to it. i gave you a 9 too :) however, the temps you are getting could be bettered by high quality *normal* watercooling.
then again, you would have to spend a bomb for any better, so well done!
I do not think this is a bad peformance due to the following reason:

1-The room temperature is at 30*C and my idle is at 37*C, that is only +7*C. Now I can't can get any closer than that because there is just no way I can get lower than room temp, room temp is what cools down the raditator.

2-I overclocked to 3.42GHz@vcore on auto and in BIOS 1.488v

3-The humidity is very high at 81%

4-Which Water cooling system are you compare with at what temperature,humidity and how much it overclock.
-----------------------------------------------
bte, what was inside the heatpipes?
There is nothing inside the copper pipe from the CNP9500, so many people just doesn't believe in me. I been there and I have done it" THERE IS NOTHING INSIDE" Those people who think there is fluide or gas inside will.... they just can't take it that they are wrong, its as simple as that I am afriad.
----------------------------------------------
That's some nice work, I also like your use of that old P3 fan for the memory chips. If after all that modding and you have no leaks I give you a 10,
LOL :p don't you just love my P3 cpu fan used as ram fan.
----------------------------------------------
my AMD X2 5200+ watercooled runs @ around 18-20'c idle and upto a max of 35'c at full load.

It is overclocked from 2.6Ghz to 3Ghz @ 1.45v though.

Nice Setup

That is a pretty wild setup. I've always wondered how hard it would be to customize your own Water System. Nicely Done. You can check my water system out if you like. It is listed in the case mods. http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/667

Nice Work. 10/10 for the labor alone!

Thanks guys.
And yes its hard work, it took my father and me 1 month to think, plan, buying the right material and do it in scales. And it took us(father+me) another 1 week to solder the pipes to gether and the most easy part is installing the whole thing into and onto my computer case only one day. The water tank is pretty tight in my case but lucky I have 4x 5 inch bay. The water tank took up 3 bays>.<

Your spelling/description is a bit iffy, but the pics explain most of it. 9/10, i wish you'd made it a little clearer what youve done.

But really - awesome work.
