well i wouldn't wanna even try to answer some of the other stuff BUTT i would recommend a pool cover pump such as: This Guy
these pumps are pretty loud BUTT you can make a box and wrap it in a acoustic foam PLUS put it under your house. Just modd it and attach voltage knob so you you can control power/pressure and run it up to your PC. How cool would it be to control the pressure while sitting at your desk XD
but yea, these pumps are pretty beast. plus you won't have to worry about keeping the pump cool since you'll be running pretty cold water through it, but i would recommend attaching a small sink to the body just so you don't loose too much cold in the liquid due to the pump being hot. (prolly won't be necessary but hey, this is OCN smile.gif)
i'm definitely subbed dude...this is awesome.
EDIT: sucks you're putting it off, but you should still get everything ready...can't be leaving us hangin like that mannnnn rolleyes.gif

Thanks for contributing!!

This certainly hasn't gone away, we've had our house up on the market for almost a year but no one has wanted to buy it...stupid economy haha.

Once our house sells we'll be either building or purchasing an existing home and I'll IMMEDIATELY begin on the geo-thermal cooling loop. Actually....I'll finally have a "Lab" or "command center" or "Man-Cave of Epicness"....well in my mind at least biggrin.gif:D

Anyways, hopefully won't be long my wife and I are anxious to move! Stay tuned thumb.gif

Good luck on selling. Not sure how it works where you are, but here it's a fantastic time to buy. I'm surprised that nobody has scooped up the offer.

Thanks! Actually the wife and I are looking into turning this house into a rental property...seems like a headache but it might be our best bet.

You're right, it is a great time to buy...but the banks won't approve many people and the area I live in got hit pretty hard with the terrible economy.

then renting out your house mite turn out to be an awesomeee idea.
my buddy has three condos he rents out in chespeake, VA and they make some great money.

you just have to find a lawyer to write up the contract for ya.
Also, if someone destroys the house (dry wall , paint, carpet), you can fix it yourself and pocket the deposit....which generally is one months rent.

the biggest pain though is that you have to make an agreement to fix things that normally go wrong (this is usually specified in the contract) such as: water damage, seals wearing (toilets, sinks, shower, etc), cracked paint, mold, windows, weather proofing...etc, the list goes onnnnn

but after you figure out what you want to cover, you should be pulling in some great cash. Just keep a small account open specifically for emergency repairs that come outa your pocket and there'll be nothing to worry about smile.gif

In the meantime...you could build a bong and have 6c under ambient res temps..It works for me, and I live
in FL where it's 80+ degrees and 100% humidity quite often.Click my sig..especially read Motoray's
edit: ..wimmens are not fond of bongs..afaik
