    Yeah, I can see you having those ES chips but am frankly amazed that you got a hold of a retail chip this early. It's unreleased and that's got to be the problem. ;)

    Alrighty my friends, if you would be so kind as to indulge my excitement over installing my first watercooling system today I would apprieciate it. I know one looks bout the same as any other, but here are pics of my new system so enjoy. Also, cdawall, I ordered those crucial reds today, so we'll see if my Crosshair II likes them as much as yours. And for those of you updating your ram, I have 8 gigs(4x2gig sticks) of the very nice Corsair Dominator 1066 8500C5D 2.1 volt 5-5-5-15. So if you want some, hollar at me and I'll cut you a better deal than what newegg has. Also trying to unload a brand new CoolerMaster 690 and the new Zalman 120 heatsink/fan for AM2+. I'll negotiate a good price with you so I can get rid of it, want to use the extra $$$ to get water cooling parts for my chipsets. :)

    I'll probably sleeve all the cables one of these days when I get bored and make some holes for better cable management, not that it is cluttered now, but...always room for aesthetic improvements for OCD people like myself.

    BUY MY STUFF!

    nice setup
    how is your loop going?
    res > rad > cpu > res

    Res > pump > cpu > rad > res Thought about going rez > pump > rad > cpu > rez but honestly, the case is so well cooled on air, and the thing pumps the water so damn fast...don't see it making much difference. When I expand the system I may do it the other way, but for just the cpu, my danger den Black Ice GTX360 triple rad is overkill.

    Pump is a Danger Den DD-CPX Pro 12V 3 Pin Powered Pump - 237 GPH (DD-CPX Pro).

    I would love to cool the gpu's man. But whoo...$$$$! I plan on doing so, but im going to get my chipsets first. Easier and cheaper. Besided, when I do have some extra $$$ for the gpu waterblocks, im going to put them on their own loop, so that will include getting another pump/res/and rad so it is as effiecient as possible and doesn't hurt the performance of the loop with the cpu and chipsets. Plenty of room in the case for another loop :)

    790GX chipset likes water. The top part of the heatsink separates from the heatpipe which allows for the block to mount over it, cooling the NB and the mosfets. I got a 12c drop on my NB (51c->39c) and the motherboard temp went down 7c (30c->23c).

    I have gotten 260mhz without really trying. That GTX 260 is back in my other rig, I'm just waiting on a new video card for the PII rig and then I'm going to see what it can do. Cooling shouldn't be a problem, even with a lot of voltage I still haven't seen the CPU go over 32c!

    I can get one for cost of manufacturing and shipping+duties ect... ;-) $90-110 estimated.
    I am considered a very minor stock holder, but according to AMD, you are part of the family no matter how little shares you own...
