About the Mac.. I love the old ones. I just got rid of my last one of 13 years service. It did my billing for my Business it was the MAC II with the 512 Ram and lots of accounting and drawing programs. If you would like the old software, I could work out a trade with you.


On the LED lights in the case. I went to Advance Auto Parts and bought the 16 inch LED waterproof stick strip in Red. Really bright and no warm up time and no fading.. just low wattage 12 volt to light up the floor board of a car, but mine was for lighting up the inside of a case. I used two in this build. One up and one down but the lighting is very bright. Have a look.

What was the cost and do they have any smaller sizes?

Yea... They were about 19 dollars a strip and you can cut them to fit to any size. There are cut off points on every one so you can cut it with scissors and no rewireing required. They are not cheap but you get what you pay for and they did have smaller sizes. And some in blue white red purple and Green

Happy Monday gents. I've been a little preocc'd with the worst case of strep throat a throat could possibly be strepped, and all of my projects were sidelined. (and to make matters worse, I feel as if I'm relapsing.)

Well, I started sanding off the black paint on both side panels of the scout, the plastic fascia, and removed the metal 'mesh' fan covers. I'm probably going to leave the interior black, as well as the filter screens, with the rest going flat red.

I'll have pics posted as I progress. Also, I'll have a couple pics of the Fisher Koronette bar/stereo up when I get home...any info you (Bri) may have on it as far as a good restorer goes would be rad. I may just sell it tbqh.

Also, I'm still (reading back) a bit perturbed about the H50/70 hate. i7 @ 4ghz (3.990 or 190*21/HT on/turbo off/2:8/1.27vcore @ vdroop enabled) @ 65c under load with R4's in p/p in an 800D. I've since returned it to stock when a strange board issue reared it's head. (seemed as if my e770 started pumping voltage into its pcie lanes...idle 580's shot up to 65c for no apparent reason...my guess, I probably had %/v configured incorrectly somewhere. Strange though, I had that OC stable under prime for 2 hrs, and it ran on without issue for almost 10 days, then BAM! I rly need to find a stable bios template for this mobo.

Other than that, cheers!

the last light I bought was this and it works great. And since I haven't gotten even one bite on my system and seem to be stuck with it, oh darn, I want to get another. I can't hook it up to my led switch cuz it doesn't supply enough voltage, but it does look great!

My sympathies my friend. I hope you get to feeling better. Strep is a b***h.

Well I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one. It wasn't the hatin that got to me, everybody is entitled to whatever they want to feel, the problem I had was that when a, he who will not be named, poster chimed in, the tone was that of superior knowledge and everyone else was wrong no matter the proof being provided.

Other than that CHEERS right back at you!

Indeed.

I mean, it may not be as effective as a heatkiller, or other open loop wc solution, but it's great, and doesn't cause excessive board flexing like some of those beastly (500g and up) air coolers.

I mean, I was practically on par cooling-wise with that V-10 monstrosity. Well, to each their own, but I'm content until I go completely underwater...$$$ getting a little sparse. ($120/block for 580's, $80 HK, $130 NB, a 360 + a 240 + res + pump + compression fittings + tubing + etc etc etc = OUCH)

Are you saying my 750g megahalems will bend my mobo?
Should I brace it to the top fan by a wire so some weight is taken off it?

I hear ya. I decided I wanted to swimming as well and I'm up to $404 with just the cpu block, the vga block, fittings, pump and res in a wish list. That doesn't include the tubing because I want to do something different and use copper tubing for an industrial machine look. Ultimate cooling is not my goal. I want it to look kewl and if I can stay within my H50 temps with all the elbows and bends I'll have to do, then I'll be happy; but sheesh, the cost! I could build a whole tower for that much coin.

If you have a good backplate you shouldn't worry much about it.
