    12V rail is reading 11.79 in bios. Should I increase the voltage?

    That's less than 2%. You should be fine.

    i blame my ram. i paid out the ass for it and it's barely stable at 200mhz.

    Increasing tubing size will increase performance?

    Well, my 2-302 had 1/2" tubing so he might just be able to slip 1/2" tubing over it.

    Has anyone tried this yet? ViaAqua?

    i heard they die after six months or so. you should try the "search" feature. i know there's a thread on it.

    order of cooling

    if you have res you'll want to put it before the pump so it'll prime itself. just do whatever you gives you the shortest/easiest tubing for the rest of it.

    Got Chenming the heck am I supposed to mount my radatior.

    It's actually not *that* big a deal if pull air from inside the case through the rad. Since you've already moved the major heat sources into the loop the air inside won't be much warmer than ambient.

    finishing watercooling install....have question

    i always connect the green and the black pin nearest the green. probably comes out to the 4th and 6th. oh, i use a paperclip for that.

    Got Chenming the heck am I supposed to mount my radatior.

    that radiator is junk. you'll have more noise for less cooling with that. i can't believe anyone who reads this forum would buy an 80mm rad, dual or no. just do the math on surface area for a 120mm rad versus surface area on a dual 80mm rad. also, since the heatercore would be cheaper you'll...

    dangerden DDC-12v pump doesn't want to start when powered up...little help

    Algae really isn't that big a deal. I ran my loop for several months on distilled water with no problems whatsoever. edit: 10% zerex 90% distilled water seems to be the recommended mixture around here.

    DangerDen cracks?

    i've heard it can happen, but have never seen a first hand account of one cracking. you could always pay the extra $6 for the bronze.

    Shipping watercooled box across the atlantic? good or bad?

    i'd just take it apart before shipping i were you. you'd have to do it anyway since you're going to have to leak test again.

    water pump

    I'm sure your power supply is enough. My dangerden d4 pump draws something like 24 watts. not even a fart in the wind to a PS like yours. The big difference between AC pumps and DC pumps is that the AC ones need to be plugged into the wall. If you get a relay then you can have your AC pump...

    Is 740 GPH overkill?

    ya, that's it. i had too small a reservoir once and the water sloshed around so much all kinds of air was getting into the lines.

    Is 740 GPH overkill?

    nope. doesn't work that way. you want the maximum temperature difference between the copper and the water. water just sitting in the block = bad. the only thing he'll really need to worry about is making sure his reservoir (assuming he's using one) is big enough to avoid having so much...

    Yeah, linux and the ATI AIW don't really mix. Nvidia cards and the hauppauge 250 get along great tho. In all honesty I've had bad luck with ATI and capturing. My PVR-350 is awesome now that I've gotten it 100% working. I cannot tell the difference between my TV tuner and playback of a...

    TDX nozzle gasket: manufacturer's defect?

    My temps were around 36C during summer and were as high as 42C before I took it apart. I haven't put it back together yet since I'm waiting on my new case. I'll be able to fit a 2-302 in it. I don't remember which size the o-ring was. I just brought the block with me and test fit them since...

    Watercooling AIW

    all you have to do is make sure they all have the same diameter fittings. i doubt anyone still makes aluminum water blocks so you don't need to worry about that.

    So are you putting your mobo and such in a separate box or going with a rack mount? I don't imagine you can just screw an ATX board into that thing.

    TDX nozzle gasket: manufacturer's defect?

    mission accomplished! there's a huge difference between the soft foam washer that was on there before and the rubber o-ring i found. i still think i deserve a new one from DD. i'll let you guys know if they send me one anyway.
