    Thank you very much for that feedback. I'll hit my local hobby shops up again and see if I can actually get someone to serve me who has some idea.

    Cool thanks dude. I got some from my local as well eventually. Frontline Hobbies. I think it's 5/32 tube and connects beautifully to the RC fuel tube. I've now made a block for my northbridge in the same style as your own blocks as per the home made waterblock thread. I'll post a little tip in there that some people might appreciate. :)

    How are the TT pumps going, they have a tendancy to fail.

    just utterly amazed, when i first saw the split system air con, i thought ah yeah thats a good idea, but what youve done with it is AMAZING! all that copper welding, crazy manifold, fabrication and excessive waterblocks are awesome!

    glad you also went ahead with the UV lights, done that with my watercooling setup years ago. youve eventually got to put sides on it and finish it off!

    I nominate rainwulf as the king of Water Pr0n. As mentioned many times, your dedication to Ultra-blocking is unreal.

    Sweet build, even more so as the AC in the Office is broke today, and my Core 2 Duo (Office Rig) is most likely crying. :sick:

    Rainwulf, don't stress about any of the negative feedback mate - when someone goes to put together a list of uglies - it's almost exclusively going to be about the "different". Yours is certainly that! See how much positive feedback there is here... you're doing something right!! :)

    Awesome work there pal, and I can't wait to see how it ends - but happy to see the work in progress shots too! :) Very cool!

    Update!!

    I finally got the sides ordered, and they have arrived. Due to cost constraints, im going with a special plastic aluminum ply construction for the case sides, so you wont be able to see in the sides. I just cant afford the over 100 dollars for a piece of clear plexi/ABS that will cover the side of the case.
    I got the plastiply for free, so its going on.

    I also managed to locate myself a nice 9600Gt and i was going to put it into the system for Physx support so i can play mirrors edge with all the cool things. Some damn bug between ATI and Nvidia makes that an epic fail. BSODS, something to do with catalyst and forceware drivers.
    On a side note, the ageia PPU does work in mirrors edge, and its awesome, but due to some epic fail between ati and mirrors edge and physx, ati+ppu= super slow. BAH.


    My speaker system died, so monolith is kind of on the back burner while i design the speakers and amplifier. 5 by 50watt and 1 by 200 watt amplifier module in one block. I shall call it the tower of terror or something. 4 torroid transformers, the works. Thats a different worklog however.

    Ummm, to have PhysX enabled BOTH cards have to be Nvidia.

    Cheers

    No, you can run ati and nvidia physx. plenty of people have done it.

    I actually had it working. Its just that as soon as i did anything involving graphics, the machine would BSOD.
