sandiegoskyline: thanks for the recomendation, but i've never heard of HIPRO. If i do buy another, I'd want tit to be sli ready so I think im going to have to spend $70 to 140 on a new one...
It seems more of a pain than it's worth. I like to reduce headaches any way I can with computer stuff. Sell that res on ebay, stick to a Tline and thank yourself for it. Either that or make/get one made for you out of copper . Go to a machine shop or a rad shop and see what they say.

You might be able to do something like that since you like it so well..Just make sure it is chemically inert and non reactive..Yeah, if you could find something like the Rhino lining that is in my truck bed that you can just spray or brush on it might save it for you..Maybe a lab supply place might have something, that's a good idea you had there...I'll keep looking around for something to...Corsair has a new 620 watt moduler psu for around $160.00 it's been getting pretty good reviews on the net,I've been thinking about getting one...I like the cables better than the Enermax 620 Liberty....Happy Hunting... P.S. just went over to good old McMastr-Carr...Think we can find something there for you...Type in Phenolic Coatings...Under that they have Acid resistant and Phenolic and Polyester coatings...they only come in 1 gallon jugs for around $50.00..Dont let that dicourage you though they have a ton of plastic coatings listed there..I didn't have time to go through alot of them...I'm headed to the lake right now to to try to scare up some bass I'll look longer in a few hours...Good old McMaster-Carr I dont know why I ever look any place else first...They are amazing for hardware needs.......http://McMaster-Carr.com

The Sunbeam Nuuo is also a great PSU for the money. McMaster has MasterKleer tubing for really cheap too. Get the 7/16"ID - 5/8"OD and you'll be happy with it.

I'll do that Snerp... I didn't even look for that when I was there......Thank's .......... P.S Today is 9-21....Got back over to McMaster-Carr looking for some more liquid linings . They have things that would work but they would cost you $50 or $60 bux....Maybe you can use a plastic pipe to line it as you first suggested...That would only leave your end caps to deal with...

I dono about you guys but all yesterday I couldn't even get to the site..

Anyways since then I've called frozencpu and asked them what they think and they though I'd be ok with the res as it is. I also went out to lowe's and looked for something to line it with but after looking for 45min to a hour I couldn't find anything I could trust not to mess up the nice new res.

I also did a test to see if the current psu could run the pump and it passed. The water that came out didn't rush but if you put your finger over the exit it built up allot of pressure. So im pretty sure the pump is running strong.

I've also been working on mounting stuff. The radiator was a complete pain to mount on the back. Maybe it was the screws or method I used to mount it but it took me an hour and a half to get it right.

The reservoir looks great. The quality is nice and it mounts just how i planed. I'm just crossing my fingers on the corrosion thing.

I'll post a pic or something soon

Hey, I'm glad you got this resolved to your satisfaction, better now than after you got it set up, that would of really tripped you out..It's a really nice looking res, can't blame you for wanting to use it, considered it myself at one time..I couldn't get back on last night either..Admin said they had a switching problem duriing a upgrade, or something to that effect, said it might go down tonight to, but just for a short time...Good Luck on your fine looking rig, let us know how it does Temp. wise when your done, already know it's going to look fine......P.S - Thanks I was glad to help...

Ok I've got everything other than the blocks installed. It was sorta a pain to mount the pump because of the location but should be worth it when i decide to go sli. As far as the mounting of the reservoir its in a odd place but I want to be able to see it and that’s the only place it would fit other than outside.. The only way to fill it is to remove the other side panel and remove the brace that its mounted to. If i leave slack I should be able to pull it out and upright it to fill it. If all else fails I would have to turn the PC on its face to fill it lol.

So far I think its looks sweet and I hope the temps are good. Once this thing runs on liquid my next problem is monitoring the temps again. MBM 5 doesn't read my CPU right. MBM5 says my cpu is like 180degrees C, lol. I had SensorView and it worked well but has expired. So are there any ideas out there? I'll look around some for other programs.

I took some pics of the progress, because we all like pics

Hey, That is already looking really fine..I like to be able to see my res to..Glad you got to use it..Have you tried to use Speed Fan to monitor your temp's I like better than MBM...D-Tek have T's with a tailed thermister mounted in them to measure your liquid temp. inline. I think they are compatible with the compu-nurse digital display...I'm going to try to seal my compu-nurse thermister with silicone in a T and see if it works, just leave a little bit of the tip in the fluid flow, if it doesn't work so well I'll buy one of D-Tek's...Have to make sure it work's with a compu-nurse first...You can't use a small tube and funnel to fill it?

Make sure that tube on the pump isn't kinking...it looks like it may be.
