    Single-Loop Limitations? Have I reached it? CPU, GPU, MB, GUP?

    Now for a really off the wall question. Do you think that the OP would be helped by using the Primochill Typhoon III Dual Bay Reservoir (I don't think it would be as good as having two independent loops). Could the OP put the 2x GPU's in one parallel loop and the CPU in the other parallel loop...

    Please help me select a kit

    I agree that the MCP655 pump (Laing D5) would have no problems pushing water thru a 360 rad (even with a highly restrictive CPU WB and GPU WB) ;) Like maeveth suggested above , I also think you'd be better off just building a DIY (do it yourself) water cooling loop. I think it would be...

    Swiftech MCR320 Questions/Loop Options

    Please post the results and whatever cures you find. ;) I am very curious as to the efficiency of stack configured radiators. Although my confuration ATM is external and I'm only cooling a low TDP 8800GS with a MCW60-R WB and only a MCR220 rad. I'm currently trying to upgrade my boxen to a GTX...

    Buying a new battery

    Hmm.., I think if you're carefull researching the seller it would be OK to buy a battery off of Ebay. I've purchased a D610 DFS factory refurb off of Ebay ($250 bucks and change), a nc6000 ($74 bucks and change) I also purchased a new battery, 2 GiGs of RAM and a 40 GB HD for it off of Ebay. I...

    Couple of WC Questions

    In all honesy I don't see where adding Pentosin or organic food coloring (which may or may not attract plant or animal life) has much difference in hassle :rolleyes:. Just the chance of it even remotely it being a benefit to my expensive WCing pumps by lubricating them apeals to me :p...

    Changing coolant

    I've read many posts that range from 6x months to, now in this thread, 18x-24x months. I just assume anyone that used a short cycle (6x-8x months) didn't use an expensive factory made coolent in their loops (which IMHO, is a waste of $ and distilled water, PT Nuke make the best coolents for...

    Couple of WC Questions

    On the whether to use Pentosin or not. I've always been under the impression that adding a couple of drops of PT Nuke or a biocide addititive to distilled water was sufficient for any WC'ing loop that didn't have mixed metals or was used in a sub zero environment. Plus the added precaution of...

    seems toasty for thermalright

    I don't have any real world experience with the i7 CPU, because I don't have one yet (I don't really HT, so I'm lookin' at the 1156 skt i5) . I have been taught that load temps were the critical temp to pay attention to. IMO, a load temp of never higher than 60c to 63c isn't a problem for a...

    Help me building a liquid cooling system

    Please check out the list below, by nalfjhy of OCN (, IMO, it answers just about any question you have about component suitability (price and which pump goes with which rad, tube, rez, etc :D) Originally Posted by nafljhy View Post Here is my list as a reference: CPU...

    Happy Windows 7! How'd your install go?

    It can really be confusing sometimes :rolleyes: here's how I understand it : beta (1,2, into infinity), RC (release candidate, only one for Win7, RC1), RTM (Release to Manufacturer or Ready to Manufacture, I don't know which, it's the finiished product it just needs DVD pressing) and last, but...

    I need a little advice

    Err...Ah, I appologise if I wasn't too clear in my first post. LOL, I like that "impulse buying" crap :p I was mostly investing in a thing called "education" ;) I've never had the opportunity to explore the insides of a laptop (I've probably built 50 desktops and when the Chimp Challenge...

    Happy Windows 7! How'd your install go?

    I can't believe how great the Win7 OS is. I'm one of the WinXP holdouts (both WinXP x64 and WinXP 32) I went from the beta to the RC1 in both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions. (for a Q6600 w/ 8 GIGs of PC6400 RAM and a nc6000 wireless laptop w/ only 768 MB's of PC2700 RAM) :) One of the things...

    Low Budget Laptop Advice

    I'll admit I'm kinda' new to the World of laptop/notebooks/netbooks and I use my lappy for mediorcre things like emailing, DVD playin', surfing the Net to keep from interupting either one of my 2x WC'ed Q6600 G0's from their 24/7 DCing jobs. I'll also admit I went as cheaply and reliable as I...

    I need a little advice

    I use my laptops for pretty much just surfing the Net, emailing and watching DVD's. ATM I have 2x water cooled Q6600 G0's that I try to keep DCing 24/7 without interuption (unfortunately they're temporarily shut down to upgrade and save on electricity and ACing in the summer) ATM I have 2x...
