    Didn't remember that there were Pentium MMX's without heatspreader, those ceramic pieces look sweet :)

    I had this motherboard! :D
    I give them with replaced caps in CPU section with Athlon 64 3000+ and 1GB of DDR to the friend of mine. He was really poor then (family problems etc), but I helped him. Good use of "old" hardware :)
    Before he had P4 2.6GHz on 478 socket, 786MB of DDR, 160GB HDD and Radeon 9200SE, TakeMe "300W" after my "act" - A64 3000+, 1.5GB DDR, Medion X740 XL, 160 + 40GB HDD, Delta 400W.
    Now he's traveling a lot and decided to bought HP laptop with AMD turion 64 X2, 3GB DDR2, HD3xxx for 400PLN (~90$).

    But yeah, I really helped him ~4 years ago with them, so I'm satisfied.

    Digged this outta my closet:

    Sadly the motherboard inside is shot so I'm going to replace the motherboard with another one from a version 1.2 - 1.5 Xbox. Same for the HDD,a UX series Seagate.

    Goodwill had this little buddy. Dunno what it is. All I know is that it is AGP based.

    you sure? if no known damage was done could just need a few caps replaced like ours, usually the ones (5) behind the CPU

    A couple of traces near the LPC and under the motherboard are FUBAR.

    Also the HDD in it died too.

    Anyways,the new system will have softmod and maybe TSOP if I can practice on a dead 1.6 board (which wasn't worth beans)

    EDIT:Well,even though my soldering iron is 40W with lots of time and patience and care,I can do the TSOP unlock points.

    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.

    It's not a 1080 rad (u mean the huge ones?). In the parcel were a 80 & a 120mm rad.

    80er Radi 1200 02.jpg

    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 HTF2 (fine fat rad), 1x Airplex EVO 120, 1x crap out of an Alienware/ Asetek AIO), 1x80mm (MagiCool copper X80).

    My last WC project (long since dismantled ans sold off, but hopefully soon to be replaced) used a water chiller instead of radiators. I got my 2700K up to 5.5 GHz IBT stable with that setup (who needs LN2 when you can get those speeds? :) )

    I just rechecked the case and rad I'm haggling on, and it's an 1800! Hope the guy accepts my offer :)

    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.

    Peltier Booster 1200 01.jpg

    I would arrange the tubes in a way u could switch by 2 valves between normal water-cooling and hi-overclocking (peltier)mode. The modules I've got have about 400W heat pumping power, maybe I need still a bit more, but I will test this with what I got. I'll make it so, that u can switch on one peltier-modul after the other.
    It's not finished yet, but I think in a few days I will be able to test it.

    If I had as many engineering skills as I have ambitions I would try something like that.

    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 a DC12-400 or DC12-260 phobya (these are sold by different "watercooling outfitters" i. e. "EK-Waterblocks", mine is from Phobya), it has much power, its quiet, its compact and it costs not to much (DC12-400 = 44€, DC12-260 = 37€, DC12-220 = 34€). I am using the 400 for about 1 year and no problems till now.

    Dual 1046er EHEIM - 400er Phobya 800.jpg

    1 Phobya 400 does more l/h than 2 Eheim 1046 put together. But two 1046 are pretty powerful, too.

    Peltier Booster 800 01.jpg

    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 the 4 cuplex coolers slow down the flow of the phobya pump for about 50%. That is far to much in my eyes. Maybe there is somewhere dirt in a cooler that I didn't see. However, I disassembled it and I have to think the whole thing over.
