give it a light sanding and paint it with some enamel clear coat, silicon caulk or liquid electrical tape... corrosion is not your friend...

I have an old Maze 4 in my loop. Bought it well used a year ago. Haven't changed the water in like ~6 months.... I thought the top was plastic.

lol thats funny, I thought mine was acetal, its whatever though I traded it off

Just spent 4+ hours running through all the GPU benchys w/ my 8800gtx's (2x) at stock voltages and managed to score 1 or 2 medals and 65 points give or take. THen while I was at it tweaking my bios for aquamark I decided to do some superpi runs and pifast, set PRs in both and gained another 15 points

I managed to double up on my hwbot points and knock ocn up from 34 to 33 overall lol, we actually managed to move up 9 slots in the last month!

hmm, i have a silverprop waterblock here, i think its 939, reckon i should give it a go on my 8800? im meant to be getting a eheim pump and a 120 rad in the mail soon, so if i put togethor that loop, do you reckon it would be any better than running an HR03 GT?

1) hwbot changed so that each person is rewarded as an individual with only one set of global points for each bench. So the most global points with whatever hardware configuration you submit that scores highest will be the only global points you will earn as an individual for that specific benchmark, be it with 1, 2, 3 or four cards. Apparently, you can still earn more global points for your team using different hardware combinations....

2) Remember, you get scores based on who you are competing against. Multi-gpu setups are worth much less because the number of people who submit scores get exponentially fewer as you add more cards. A massive raw score still won't be worth much if only 10 other people submit scores with a particular quadfire configuration. Especially if you already have gained your top global point run as described above.

Example: My top single card 3Dmark06 score of 30531 is worth 36.7 global points for being the 22nd highest single card score overall out of thousands of entries. While my much higher score of 35634 with quadfire 4890's would only earn 3.2 global points for being 48th out of 443 submissions - and I didn't even get those points (that's why they're greyed out) because my single gpu score gave me a higher global point score as an individual. But they do count towards our team points.

Same concept applies to hardware points. But, unlike global points, all of your hardware points are applied to your individual score up to the maximum of 300.
Well i get what u say,but DUAL 4850s were like having single card config half a year ago so that why i got raised points!!!!!!!!

I thought it was plastic or acetal as well. I know the new maze5 blocks are. The old maze4 are apparently not lol. I took it apart and saw some silver stuff so I decided to try and clean it then I realized hey thats not stuff that is the water block. So I scratched the side of it and sure enough aluminum.

I may hit it up with some coats of enamel. I know I wont or shouldnt get any corrosion since I run di water and some antifreeze which usually prevents any corrosion still I just dont like the idea of aluminum being in there.

It's not loading for me and it was rather slow last night. All my status bar say is "upgrading server" this is probably because they are dropping the hardware points awarded from the top 50% of entrants in a given category to 33%

Hwbot server maintenance.
The new database server is giving us headaches. We will be done for a few more hours. Our applogies.

The hwbot crew.
I guess more time for me to test out/bench the new GTX 285 2gb I got before I ship it right back out monday to complete the WCed 8800GTX volt modded trifecta

yo vmod squad, just thought i should share this with you for anyone who wants:

http://www.overclock.net/full-system...ables-etc.html

BFG 8800 GTS 320 mb w/ DuOrb - $55

thats cheap, but what is even better, is i PMd him asking how much without the durorb, and he said he would sell it for $30 without the duorb. $30 for an 8800gts 320mb :O

I didnt take it because international shipping was too much and i dont have any spare PCIE slots.

but maybe one of you would be keen? i would if international shipping wasnt more than the card itself
