Thanks guys,
ok, small update time,
I mostly finished with the cork tape insulating around the motherboard. Takes quite a bit of time around those MOSFET's, attention to detail here can save your board. Next, I need to work my way around the power MOSFET's, the more difficult part, they are currently being covered by a stock heatsink. I'll probably take that off and order some new ones, and use some sticky thermal tape to attach it. That's still in the books, but next up, I will be using silicone for an airtight seal around some of the capacitators near the CPU, seal off the northbridge and seal off the ram sockets and the PCI-E socket.

Does that look like oatmeal to anyone else in here?


-10 for the prettyness factor

but I guess when you computer run at sub-zero temperatures you can show off with that

lol I know, it actually feels a lot like gum, and works like gum. It really isn't to difficult, just time consuming, and sometimes anoying when it comes to those small cracks. Just wait till we get to the CPU socket, then the delecate/hard part comes, expecially for my board, with the pins in the motherboard

That prettyness factor will jump when you see the temps

I'll see If I can get the silicone on before too long so I can give you guys another update, unfortunatly, I'm in the middle of reading Ken Kesey's Cuckoo's nest for school.

Ok, so tonight I compleated the front side of insulating my motherboard (- CPU)... I had to use silicone on the capacitators to give them a watertight seal, this protects the connectors from condensation and possible corrosion. It's messy stuff, but it's much faster, and better than using the cork tape, expecially in those small, hard to reach areas. Boy, I'm burned, I got a lot to tackle comming up.

What's next?
1. Insulate back side of board using more cork tape, and foam tape for added protection
2. Order a Heater for added security
3. Work on the CPU (dielectric grease + airtight seal) and fitting in the waterblock.
4. Sleep until my pump arrives (thanks lando )

I'm open to any questions you may have.

lol good question..
Well, I still have to do the following
1. Order the condensation heater (maybe by the end of the week because I am ordering some custom ones)
2. Wait for my water pump to arrive
3. Insulate my waterblock
4. Install the heater and inulate the back of my motherboard
5. Insulate my accumulator so it doesn't crack
6. Insulate my waterpump from frost buildup
7. Insulate all my tubing using the stiff celled tubing insulation and pipe wrap
8. Get the right ratio of de-icer and watterwetter correct.
9. Pressure and leak test the system
10. Post a lot of pics on my backup 700MHz mac w/64 megs of ram and intagrated gfx. (the longest part)
11. Start to OC and get some 5GHz results....

So for time estimations, Mid next week, you will see my waterblock covered in ice, by the next weekend, I hope to have my Heater in, and back of the board inulated, and by 2 weeks from now, pressure and leak tested to profection. Not to mention I still am looking to buy a raptor..

for temps, a safe guess on temps would be -20c idle and -10c load, mabye lower if I decide to mod the setup. My goal is to get better temps than the OCZ phase change system when it comes out

Dude, don't insulate the pump.

If you insualte the pump it'll melt because it can't dissipate any heat.

I hope you get temps like that, what are you using for thermal paste? the arctic ceramique.
