- AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego processor @ 3.12GHz. Asus A8r32-MVP Deluxe motherboard. CPU MCW-5002-64 peltier cooled (-7℃ idle +13℃ load) X1900XTX graphics card watercooled by Dangerden Tyee waterblock (35℃ idle 55℃ load). RAM consists of 2x 1Gb Corsiar XMS PRO DDR550Mhz modules. Harddrive Maxtor 250Gb SATA 2 6V250F0- Vantec Vortex 2 Cooled. OPTORITE Ultraspeed DVD RW DD0495. 24" Dell 2407WFT rev 2 High definition Widescreen LCD display + 21" Dell CRT. Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black case. Tagen Easycon 580W Black power supply
Custom cooling setup for both processor and X1900XTX. The processor is peltier cooled using an MCW-5002-64 pelt waterblock with 2 large radiators one at the front of the case and the other fixed to the rear of the case using a radbox, the reservoir fills a spare 5.24" drive bay. The graphics card has a single radiator in the loop with 2x P4 original CPU heatsinks alloy bonded with the top having the original fan on. The pump for the processor loop is a Liang D5 pump screwed to the botton of the case, and the pump and reservoir for the graphics cooling loop is housed in the removable hard drive bay at the top back of the case. Also have bonded a smaller heatsink to one side of the radiator. The card itself has a Dangerden Tyee waterblock with voltage regulator block attached. On the voltage regulator I fixed 9 BGA ramsinks and 2 on the tubing ports. All the coolent in the system has blue/purple U.V dye. And to illuminate this I have 4x U.V cold cathode tubes. The meanwell powersupply housed near the top 5.25" bay has its hot exhaust extracted from case by 3xsilent 40mm fans which i fixed to the back of the bay front panal directly infront of the meanwell power supply. The hard drive is cooled by a Ventec Vortex 2 hard disk cooler. At the lower front of the case i spliced to ends of a front bay panel to the sides of an LCD digital display which i have coupled with the lcdsmartie software to display cpu/gpu temperatures and their current core frequencies as well as cpu usage.
Still workin on the cables, gonna get those hidden n maybe wrap the ones i cant hide in U.V reactive spiral wrap :-)
