    Waterbed to cool PC?

    You could also look at using extended serpentine runs of tubing like they do for underfloor radiant heating if you wanted too. but it would take a big pump to push the water.

    Trying to make a choice on a case.

    If you lay the case out correctly the Armour can give you great wire management. Get the aluminum one and use a dremel to open up the front of the Motherboard tray and you can get alot of the wiring behind the motherboard. Cut the motherboard tray where the CPU socket mount is and you will be...

    Delrin Tube Style Res Complete!

    BioPort ...I was just thinking the same thing ...especially since I am starting my new build next week. I need to decide whether to leave the water cooling out, buy a make-do reservoir, or just build it with a t-line and add the res later.

    ide to sata adaptors, where to buy?

    One word of warning .... Not all of them work with all motherboards. I have one that came with an Abit motherboard and it wouldn't work with my Epox board. I also had a thid party one that just hated my wife's Asus board but would run on 2 others. Go figure.

    What parts do you need from an Aquatube? ... I just pulled mine out of my case ... Something started eating the anodizing or else it was a piss poor anodizing job. I'm not happy about it.

    Primochill ICE

    It was reviewed on one of the sites and they found that it conducted electricity not alot but it would let enough current pass to light some LED's. http://www.thinkcomputers.org/v2/index.!!!!!!!!reviews&id=281 not good.

    WC Kit Recommendation

    For the price and performance I think Swiftech might indeed be the best answer for you. You can get other kits cheaper or quieter ... but your going to be disappointed somewhere.

    Thermaltake power supplies any good?

    I junked my TT for an Enermax .... cleaner power, quieter, and stronger ... I wouldn't put a TT in if I had any other choices. Antec PSU's are good so long as you get one of the non OEM one's.

    Coolingworks CoolRad-12T

    Agreed when comparing a BIX with this they are definitely even ... would seem to be better than a BIP though which is what I was originally comparing it to. One interesting remark I noticed was the statement that the 12-T seems to have a better flow than the BIX. I will need to do a search...

    Choosing btw 1/2" ID and 3/8" ID

    1/2" Barbs fit fine in 7/16"ID tube .... it's a tight fit but it will go on with a little muscle or lubrication. 1/2" Barbs fit inside 1/2"ID hose ...so technically they are slightly smaller than 1/2" OD.

    Choosing btw 1/2" ID and 3/8" ID

    I love my 7/16" ID tubing ... and you can find it at US Plastics and also McMaster-Carr. If you search the Forums Cathar and I have previously put out links to both sites.
