    they don't have special APE 1800 brackets, but two sets of 360 brackets _should_ work.

    cooling system failure shutdown

    basically, the TCS is a thermal fuse, placed on the processor heatsink. If/when it exceeds a temperature of 60°c, it switches off. Reset temp is 30°c. You put it inline with the ATX PS#ON lead on the cable from PSU to mobo. So when the fuse trips, the PSU shuts down immediatley.

    Home made blocks

    what you need is a milling machine. They come in all flavors, from $300 (approx) standard 3-axis systems up to 6-axis CNC beasts for 100000+. What you need would be in the $4-500 range for manual drive, or $1000 or so for CNC. CNC is better, as its much easier to machine curves. What zero...

    Coolermaster Aquagate Mini R120...

    The general consensus here is that prebuilt, lowcost kits are well... carp. You'll get similar or even better temps with good air cooling, for a fraction of the cost.

    Liquid Metal CPU cooling.

    Somehow the idea of using liquid metal seems a little... strange maybe? Off the hand, I know of three metals that are liquid at or slightly above room temp. There is quicksilver: Toxic, highest vapor pressure found in metals, and a denger with some other metals. For example, put a drop of...

    any 1/2"ID hard drive coolers?

    Having some made would be one way, another would be getting two Y connectors thet go from one 1/2 barb to two 3/8 ones, and using them to connect two 3/8 waterblocks.

    Teh Uber L33t Aqua-Computer Thread :)

    Those look like Legris products. They sell much better than what AC sells (metal with plastic retainer rings), or the full-plastic parts, at least over here.

    Teh Uber L33t Aqua-Computer Thread :)

    I believe AC buys the Plug n Cool fittings from Festo, who call them "QS", as in QS 1/8 8 for a straight screw-in fitting for 1/8 thread and 8mm OD hose, or QSLL 1/4 10 for a long, L-shaped screw-in for 1/4 thread and 10mm OD hose. See for more info.

    Need a small pump

    Well, you can throw that straight back at the seller (at least in europe). Or, try an Eheim Compact 300. Smallest WC/Aquarium pump I know of.

    Alphacool vs Aqua-Computer question

    Thro that right back at them. Because of shipping costing thirty dollars, you will likely get a new one and keep the old. Why? Because under EU law, if the product is bought from a retailer, ynd damaged during shipping, and worth more than 40 Euros, the retailer has to pay all shipping costs...

    2 pass or 4 pass radiator?

    No difference, really. Whet they differ in is restriction (I'm assuming you're talking about 2 or 4 parallel tubes) and bleedability (Bleeding 4-pass rads can be a richt b*tch).

    Need an electrically conductive thermal paste

    It is conductive, but not at low voltages. I've tried pushing 2kv throgh one centimeter of AS, and got zero current.

    Sounds like there's air

    try tilting the system while its running, that should force any air out of radiators and other hard-to-bleed places.

    Baute Besitzen!

    Baute is "Built", yeah, but built s in "he built xyz". What you mean is "Gebaut" Also, you need to add an "um zu" in the middle there, making the name "Gebaut um zu Besitzen", which is a lot closer to whyt you meant </language nazi> Cute mod, keep it coming!

    CPU Fan or Heatsink that's Nice, Affordable, and Extremely Quiet?

    A good compromise between Silence, power and price would be the Freezer series by Arctic cooling. It looks kinda whacky (imagine a fan with no housing at all), but is very quiet because of this.

    Water Block for 6600gt AGP

    Despite what has been said, Full watercoolers (GPU/RAM) for the PCI-E and AGP versions will NOT fit on the other type of card. With the AGP version, tha grapthics thip has been angled 45° relative to the PCIE cards, to make room for the bridge chip. Also, the voltage regluators have moved...

    Are 60mm fans 60mm square?

    the fan size refers to width/breadth/hight of the whole unit, so a 120x25mm fan is 120mm wide, 120mm across, and 25mm deep.

    A made a booboo....could use some advice.

    it might be that each of the four wet fans has a weak short, meaning it passes way more power than it should, but not enough to trip the PSU fuse. Four of those and a CC might be enough.

    48 hurs on the heater should be enough to get all water off.

    Question: Why Are Some People So "Negative" About Water Cooling?

    Contrary to what was said, passive watercooling while OCing is possible. I use an old truck radiator I got for 20 bucks from the scraüyard. Huge, but works like a charm. And yes, Watercooling is for people who play with their hardware (you dirty *******, never think that again!!!).

    Any VGA blocks that don't block a PCI slot?

    about the elbows: they have screw-in angle adaptors for the AquagraFX 6800 blocks, so that those point "inside" too.

    Any VGA blocks that don't block a PCI slot?

    you could get the Aqua Computer blocks with 3/8 barbs, you know... and they really are flat.

    Dual Opteron & Dual GPU WC Project

    If you want good cooling with small tube diameter, go German. Aqua-Computer or Innovatek. Pricey, but very good performers. Also, Alphacool's NexXos HP block is very good.

    Need your opinion (advanced modders need apply)

    I think an advanced modding forum would be a good idea, too. Personally, I do "standard" mods, and some things you've never seen before with lab glassware and watercooling, and I'd like a place where I can post said stuff without it being smotherd by "OMGLOOKATMYCOOLCASEIPUTINLIGHTS".

    9dba, 11dba, 14dba, many decisions!!

    um, actually, dB is a logarythmic scale, meaning that the loudness doubles (halves) for every three dBs you go up (down). (all IIRC of course) So 9 compared to 50 would be like 1: eleventybillion.

    Reservoir in bottom?

    no problem, as long as the res is einther closed (filling the system through an additional t-line), or the outlet is below the fill port.

    Suggestions for 6800gt block

    AFAIK, Aqua Computer has a 6800 block that uses 10mm ID fittings. It's for SLI systems so, according to their web site.
