Yup. Works well until the cooler isn't cold anymore.

On topic:
With the heat and humidity here in NJ, I'll have to come up with something to fix that. As far as I know, electronics don't like the humidity (or heat, but I know that). There was a school I was working at where there were Dell Precision desktops that would have RAM issues whenever it was really humid and they were off overnight.
Maybe I could see about using coke cans and a mini fridge, and make water condense on the sides of the cans, but that would probably do little to nothing.
I need ideas here, since I'm not digging the conditions, along with my dog (the darn thing is like Doge, but with a coat of fur that's like a collie).
Also, I need to rig a room air filter so that I don't have what happened last summer. What happened was that there was a small fruit fly issue in my house, and by the end of the summer, when I went to clean my fan filters, there were clusters of dead fruit flies in hexagonal groups where the holes in the front grill were. At least they were dead, and not in the computer.

So have an upcoming mod you might be interested in, I have an old H80 and I'm looking for an asetek unit on ebay to mod onto my GPU to make a loop that goes res > CPU > Rad1 > GPU > Rad2 >Res or something like that. My case doesn’t had the mounts for 2 rads but ill make it work, failing that i can switch it. This will be first time custom water cooling, so any tips would be much appreciated!

Best tip is to take your time, do not rush anything.

Also, I know that the old Antec Kuhler series (620 & 920) were made in cooperation with Asetek. Antec just made the cover for the block, and the did the aesthetics and marketing. The fans for the 920 are even the same as the ones on the R9 295x2 cooler.

So today my ghetto-nis-nes is more how im working on things over the work im doing.
and hay if you dont got some tools it helps and dont wana spend anything my way works.

So this is my soldering/glueing/general electrical working desk.
im using a dell 755 mini pc as a metal frame to magnet my 3$ flashlight to, and using a lense i cant rember were it came from to get a closer look at boards. if you want a free lense with some power look for a older vhs cam with a viewfinder. they got decent lenses in them and a half inch crt tube than runs on a composite ntsc video signal. also i think this big lens actually came from the camera in the last vhs came i gutted. the cardboard and papertowl is my make shift cleaning sponge for soldering iron. and that yoohoo can is something i rense out and i use it for dropping globs of solder and other small scraps in like a little trash can.


Here is were i need that lens and light. my dull shock 3 was a newer cheeper one with mini usb port surface mount solderd. controller fell off my desk and ripped mini usb port off of board contacts and all. so im looking at the board and finding alternative places to solder new leads to.


Got my new leads on now and i figured since its open im gonna replace the leds, USA CONTROLLER FTW


so my cable is not removable anymore, but i don't have to spend 50$ on a new controller.


BTW got really pissed at one of my friends in between opening and closing the controller, i kinda punched my main desk enough to destroy a few hard drives, shut off the computers on it, crack the fram on one of my monitors, move the desk buy about 2" break my Ethernet switch, unplug my router, and phase my ds3 screws out of existence, i found 2 of them and tightly wraped elatric tape around the handles.



i really like posting here and watching what you guys post, im working on a ghetto overclocking project on the side should be done in a few days.
