- athlon venice core 2.4ghz @1.45v, ASRock 939-dual-SATA2 motherboard, saphire radeon x800gto2, hitachi deskstar T7K500 250gb hard disk, samsung spinpoint 160 gb ide disk, raidmax ninja case, modified terratec mystify watercooling with asetek black ice triple fan radiator.
innovatek gpu surface was machined to fit the x800gto2, the asetek black ice radiator was mounted on top of the case to allow cool air for lower liquid temperature, (also there was shit all room inside the case) removed the hard drive cage to allow more room and better airflow.
this is the first time i have gone for water cooling but im really happy with it. overall, it cost (on ebay) less than £90 but does a fantastic job of cooling my graphics card (from 75 degrees maximum to 27 degrees maximum - using oblivion as a stress-tester) and a reasonable job of cooling the cpu (its a crappy aluminium block) i use the smaller monitor to display media player while i work or play.
