Looks like you are going to have an awesome build there, I can see that my Baby went to a good home. As far as keeping the finish, you could shine it up with some Brasso right before you install it then try not to touch the top. I tried using Krylon clear coat on the first copper top and on #2 which I ended up removing, it does keep the shine and stops oxidation but it crystalizes after a while and then doesen't look so good. Maybe someone has an idea of a clear protective coating that will hold up.

I have Brasso here in the cupboard. Also, I have a set of cloth gloves for handling stuff I want to keep clean. Just before final install, I'll polish it up. One of the other things I'll be doing is sleeving the PSU wire harness and getting rounded drive cables. In addition, I plan on installing 2 12" UV lights to make the hoses glow. I've been thinking of how I want to run the hoses out of the case. As this case isn't that old, I don't want to go hacking it up, so I'll be using the top 80mm fan opening as the rad will be above the PC anyways. I am also wondering if the rad I am getting will be enough for the CPU, 2 GPUs, and the NF4 Chip. I have a 120mm opening in the back of the case and could install a single rad there if needed I guess. I'll see what I get with one first.

If you are going to use the bonnie heater core that should be enough.

OK, so while at work today, I noticed a server in the recycling bin for disposal. I opened the 'ol Proliant up and lo and behold, I found my new Rad fans. Notice the "Q" written on them. I found a total of 3 of these, but 1 is REALLY loud even though is has the same model number. The "Q" denotes that these are quiet even at full speed during testing.







Please forgive the quality as the flash on my camera is a lil strong for close ups. They are Nidec Beta V's with the model #TA450DC. I don't know what the CFM is on these, but if someone gets bored and looks it up, that would be cool. I do know they feel like the push a large amount of air though. I love free things...

EDIT: Here's the specs...

D, if those are not quiet enough for you the TT smart fans are really quiet on low and I never turn them up, if I remember correctly they were about $12. each and come with speed controls.

Ordered my Bonnie heater core today with 1/2" fittings from Danger Den.

Also ordered from VoyeurMods:

--------------------------
Purchase Summary
--------------------------
Product: PrimoFlex Clear Tubing - 1/2 inch
Quantity: 10
Price: $1.29

Product: Typhoon - Dual Bay Reservoir
Options: (1/2 OD for 1/2 ID Tubing)
Quantity: 1
Price: $31.95

Product: Large Reservoir Cap
Quantity: 1
Price: $2.00

Product: Dual 12 inch Cold Cathode Kit - UV
Quantity: 1
Price: $4.99

Now I have to wait till I get paid next (2 weeks) and I can order the pump and buy my clamps and fittings. I'll also be getting the Zerex Super Coolant and distilled water, and possibly some Water Wetter. So close now, so close.

I am also going to need a rheobus to control the fans. The fans I have work from 7V-14V. Any suggestions?

OK, so my VoyeurMods order came today (USPS Priority mail pwns FedEx).

So, here's the Res:


They even included all required hardware and a roll of Teflon!


I have an idea going and that's why I got the 4 In 2 Out Res.

And the Primoflex tubing:


I ordered 10' and they shipped me 12'! Not to mention this stuff does not kink easily.

And finally the UV lights:


Notice the PSU tester. The BEST $9 I ever spent, this thing is handy.


Please excuse the fuzz, I need to vacuum.

Now I am just waiting on the Rad and to order the pump. Also, I still need suggestions for a fan speed controller!

Ok so the rad came from DD on Friday. But due to the Big East tournament, I was not able to assemble it until today (Go SU!!).

We've all seen a '77 Bonnie HC so I'll just post a couple of pics.





I'll be getting a "Stinger" version Via Aqua pump on Friday from fstfrddy and will begin the assembly shortly after that.

One last thing, I still need sugesstions for a fan speed controller!

Is that DD's acrylic dual heatercore shroud? (they don't have photos up).
