HOLY SHIT What a response!!! Engadget!! So um.. haha Time to answer the questions in the thread, and also explains some more. Thanks to all the responses!! Now the specific questions! t8y: no.. was given the card vellanet: made it myself using the plugs from other sata power adapters. They just splice in rather easily actually. rdorman: The power supply death is actually more involved then you think. I did actually insulate the copper plate from the heatsink on the power supply, and earthed it as you can see in the pics. I used a plastic thermal conductor shim between the plate and the power supply aluminium heatsink. I had already measured and found out that that plate sits at full recitified AC voltage (around 400 volts DC). The problem was that unknown to me, the heatsink was fairly rough, and had some sharp machining marks on the aluminum that punched through the plastic shim. I had tested it before turning it on, but it the 400 volts was just enough to punch through the hole and short out the entire thing AussieJester: Yea, looked at alternative pumps... The fact is that all these pipes are in parallel. Each one might be fairly restrictive, but there is a good 12 of them, plus a much wider link between the CPU block. 10 mm actually. The flow in the system is actually fairly impressive, and it takes a while for the air to come out of the coolant due to the churning inside the res. I did check out some alternative pumps and an iwaki is on the cards. Just low on cash at the moment, and i really want to actually FINISH the case. Donate? flinchy: Its actually very quiet, with the fans on 5 volts. Thats why i used 4 of them, slow speed, but between 4 of them, thats a low of slow but solid air flow. Spinning up a DVD/CD is actually louder then the fans! The pump is nearly silent, i packed all its spare spaces inside with silicone, which help dampen it. hotsuma: Yes, changing things is kinda fun haha The easiest thing to change is the CPU. Which is actually what is getting changed soon, for a Phenom II Black Edition. Still waiting on the damn 1066 ram! ob1: The reason for this? To see if i could really. I know its overkill, and as engadget said, of my rocker. I cooled my SOUND card. I was just.. bored i guess. I even cooled the damn ICS clock generator chip! I do plan on finishing it of with smoked perspex sides, green CFLs, and a few bits of strange things that i have yet to reveal!!! (its for the theme i stated at the beginning) The aim is to have it basically look like a black monolith (its namesake) until turned on, then its fantastic interior will light up. The front will be covered with something similar to black speaker cloth. The Primary objective is to just see if its possible to cool everything, and to also show the world that you dont need 1/2 inch pipes to cool northbridges and all that. Every single thing apart from the cpu is cooled with tubing with an inner diameter of just 4mm. its overkill and yet, fully functional. It works perfectly, and fast, especially once i get my 1066 ram and Phenom II. I do plan on getting a new video card one day, and of course, that will entail making new blocks for the card. That, and get a REAL x-fi card, because the one i have is a crappy extrememusic that uses an Audigy chip, and thus, all effects are done in software... grr.
