Almost! I need to work on the cable management a bit. Looks a bit untidy with all the wires like that, maybe I need some wrap or something. Can't see it from the window anyway...

Thank you!

Yes, very nice case. CoolerMaster HS?F? is also nice. Nice to see some bigger coolers...

Just finished Insane-O-Mod 2008:



More pics and a bit of a step by step will come.


It was basically just a case migration.... same internals, but I doubled the radiator capacity, swapped the coolant, and built that six fan monstrosity and bolted it to the top of the case :D

Flyordie Aug 23, 2008 06:07 AM

I really don't trust liquid cooling yet. N2O FTW. I have a small tank of that in my basement. Gaurded by a 4" thick steel door. lol. (its in what used to be a gunsafe.)
If its conductive, I wont use it.
What coolant do you use DaJMasta?
EDIT
P.s.- WWOA- Acer LCD... run!!! I hate Acer LCDs. Bad experiences with them. (hugs his 17" ViewSonic)

What all are you cooling with that monster? :lol:

I just redid my loop yesterday as well, but I forgot to add another 3x Rad. :p

Funny you should mention the Acer..... the one next to it is a 17" Viewsonic :D

For the price it's a great screen, I do seem to have an urge to move to a 24" though. Real estate ftw!



I'm using Feser One coolant (somewhat cheap, lots of colors, good performance) and used to use Fluid XP EXT.... both are fully nonconductive. I wouldn't recommend Fluid XP EXT to anyone though.... 50% more expensive than Feser One, and on my first boot with the Feser, I dropped 7-8C across the board...... really odd that it performed so badly.


Same old parts under the hood, got a waterblock on the Q6600 G0 (which will be overclocked quite a bit more in the coming days) and on my 8800GT. I just felt like being excessive and wanted to get rid of my old design (exposed pipes outside the case make it a pain to deal with).

LOL I've only got six fans (including things like GPU, PSU fans etc.) and I'm 100% on air cooling. I thought one of the benefits of water cooling was that it's not as loud :eek:

ultimadrift Aug 25, 2008 09:34 PM

New Pictar!

OverclockN' Aug 25, 2008 09:58 PM

Holy ****!! That thing is outta control! How can you sleep at night knowing that thing is around the corner!? :eek:



Oh yeah, and your optical drive text label? Nice... :lol:

ultimadrift Aug 26, 2008 05:20 PM

It says OMGWTFBFGSAUCE and it only looks cluttered in the front the back is pretty clean cuz of the modular cables.

Built a shelf for my computer :bleh: I was tired of it down by my feet so i stuck the printer down there instead, i like it... i think, :p hope it`s not too ghetto looking, took me several hours with my table saw, cut off saw, router table, band saw, power sander, hand sander, drill and miscellaneous hand tools and sand paper. :D :up: Long time since i did any woodwork, besides my deck.

Meh, i`m a child. :p Honestly i was sickly tired of the world map and it`s the only other poster i have that will fit, seems i somehow had doubles... a couple years ago i made an oak framed poster for my neice for christmas. I should make a few more frames, if only i had more wall space. It probably won`t last long although i actually don`t mind it. :D

Here`s some more i have, several different posters in some of them that i rotate, i should pick up some new ones.

Recently replaced the 19" monitor shown on p.60 with a 22" one :)



Need to redo the cabling to fix that cable clutter and find a way to remove the top bit of the monitor stand that's still attached to the monitor...

BTW, good job on the PC stand. I wish I still remember some of the things I've learned from the woodworking club back in high school...

Thanks, i really enjoy working with wood. :bleh: :p

I just replaced my cheap, crappy old AMD 690 micro-ATX board with the Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe AMD 790FX, since I was able to buy it from the previous owner for cheap.

I've spent most of the day taking the system apart and re-assembling it again. I hit a lot of snags along the way, for example the screwholes didn't align with the mobo because of the thick IO shield Asus shipped with the board. I had to physically bend the rear of the case outwards slightly... Also had to take the harddrives out and then squeeze them in once the board was in place...a tight fit but that's what you get when you go with the cheapest case.

I'm always amazed when a system boots up for the first time and actually displays an image on the monitor. I dunno..I always expect either just a black screen, or flames, smoke and explosions :eek: Initial test run:


Got a new cooler and tidied up the inside a bit.
