You're going all out, not just pumping air from AC unit into case, a truly integrated AC case. You sir, are awesome smile.gif

Thanks mate, it's all worked out just as I hoped....I'm stoked thumbsupsmiley.png

mm!i meant todays cpu!but i dont see why bother to upgrade this!just keep it and oc the eck out of it ,i am pretty sure ocer here can help to properly set it for higher!the knowledge you will gain on this will be more valuable then on new i suspect!because a 65 nm temperature wise pretty much react like the new 22 nm i suspect!so if it work on this 65 nm it will defintly work on the 22 nm!if you break this 775 socket along the way i bet you wont shed a lot of tears on this 775

Yeah i could learn a lot about overclocking here I'm sure, I can get a decent overclock myself but sure could do much better.

I think the max overclock on the q6600 is about 4Ghz though...it is aging tech now.

In regards to your ram situation, certainly having all 4 slots populated in conjunction with running a high FSB setting, your going to stress out your NB/Memory controller much more than you would if you were running 2 sticks at the same settings.
If your not having issues with stability yet however, I wouldn't worry about it biggrin.gif. When you start becoming unstable, then start thinking about loosening ram timings and possible removing two modules. Cheers on your setup!

Thanks Matt, I'll give that a whirl.. cheers.

Wow.. that is one very well built chillbox! Fantastic job TG! thumb.gif

I had the same temp wrapping issue on my older abit ic7-max3. Once temps went sub 0c they would start reading at 248c or there abouts. The cpu thermal shutdown didn't activate with that reading either. The cpu was stable at high oc and that's all that matters.

The heatpipe is probably using water, you can read about that here. Definitely go with a high performance soild copper hs for sub 0c. Use a high cfm fan just as you would for max performance with ambient temps. Of course try and get a small liquid chilled circuit for the cpu. The gpu's can stay on air as they will most likely need vmods to take full advantage of chilled liquid anyways.

Great pics.. thanks! cool.gif

so basicly the problem of his temperature would be the sensor it self?at reaching 0 it would ground itself or put it self at max?how the eck do you mesure cpu temperature then ?
or does he ignore it and add a secondary sensor very close to the cpu that can read way in the minus and use the original only to see if when it heats up it stays lower then say 30 celcius etc?

The temp monitoring in the bios does something I understand is called binary wrapping, it counts down to zero deg C and then wraps around on itself and counts down from 255.

So once below zero temps are achieved you have to allow for this so a reported temp of say 248 would be :- 255 - 248 = 7 or 7 deg C below zero,

But that is just in the bios. Once booted to windows I use "CoreTemp" to monitor the cpu temp......I have no idea what is happening with that it seems to go down to individual core readings of 9,5,5,9 and stop there even though I know from the bios that the cpu temp is going lower than that. But once under load it does start to register correctly above those temps.

Thanks Drew and a special thanks for the help and advice you've given me on this here and elsewhere.

As regards the heat pipes I've email a number of companies requesting details of the evaporant they use.....should be interesting.

So it wouldn't be a benefit to water cool the gpus? In that case I may well consider a small water loop for just the cpu. I've got a black ice gtx 360 but that would be a litte excessive just for the cpu and I'd have difficulty in fitting that because of its size and would have to cut the box about which I don't want to now as its working so well.

I could easily accommodate a 120 even a 240 rad. But I'd have to use a fairly small pump possibly combined pump res unit and I guess as I'd be using a smaller pump would probably want to use a less viscous methanol based antifreeze.....any suggestions as to what smaller pumps /res combo's may be suitable to use with a methanol mix?

Actually had what I think is a great idea, instead of blowing air through the water cooling loop rad I was thinking I'd push the rad face up against the evap face and sandwich layers of this copper mesh all scrunched up and compressed as much as possible between the two to make direct thermal contact.

http://www.birdstop.co.uk/stuf-fit_copper_mesh_wire.asp

What do you think...a better way to transfer heat from the rad than air? It would be like a massive heat sink surface, could even use this silicon thermal compound within the copper mesh and forced into the rad and evap surface to make better contact.
