Thanks! Yeah it's been coming together fast. Friday I'm away for a week, so I'm hoping to catch up on some sleep. I've only managed about 30 hours of sleep over the last two weeks, and I'm starting to feel the effects pretty bad.

Also got some new goodies coming in Friday right before I leave. Let's just say I need to get a flow sensor. That ought to be enough of a hint tongue.gif

Hope you have a good, restful week "off", so you can come back and finish this thing! I'm very excited about seeing the end result.

Me too, but I have a feeling I may not meet my 1 month deadline. It will be up and running, but I'm not sure if it will look the way I want it. Tonight I managed to get some work done on the power supply, and that's now mostly squared away. Did some work to the frame as well. Anyways, off to bed.

I need ideas. I've used towels, those eventually grew old. I used metal screen, it wasn't dense enough. I have a ton of packaging foam the is decently dense, but water tends to flow over it more than through it.

Overclock.net, what should I use for material for the top cooler?

Don't know if You've tried it all ready but would Stainless Steel Wool work? headscratch.gif

EDIT:

Or even (three different grades of) Aluminium Wool?

that's actually a really good idea

$19 for a roll of 1/4" thick x 4" wide fine stainless steel wool on ebay @ 18ft long. That would be perfect for my application.

stainless steel wool inside of a steel mesh screen would probably be the best

hmmmmmm the mesh would have to only go up to about a cm below the holes the water comes out, so that way the water will fully saturate into the wool and not just run down the sides of the mesh.

Thanks guys! I think I'm going this route.
