Anyone from MASSACHUSETTS?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just dished out way more cash than I ever should on Newegg, FrozenCPU, PPC, and Jab-tech for my new build.

I have a buddy coming over in 2 weeks to help put together everything with me and make sure nothing goes wrong.

Unfortunately, he's never done watercooling before. Neither have I.

Is there anyone around here from Massachusetts that might wanna come pay us a visit and help us a long? I would certainly pay for gas to and from. I just want to make sure that nothing goes wrong.

I am more nervous than I ever have been but I'm so excited about it.

Anyone from around here?

Its as simple as connecting tubing to barbs, putting clams on the end of the tubes and then filling the res. Not hard at all, for my first ever loop that's what I did, took a little over 2 hours to install everything though... I didn't do any leak testing and its running fine.

Well I'm using compression fittings. But I've never taken apart a video card before, I'm not quite sure what it entails. Idk I was just looking for some friendly help sorry.

Just PM me if you're from Massachusetts or would like to help. I won't bother you all in this thread anymore.

Yeah same here. Sorry OP.

But, maybe if you try at the New England Overclockers Thread, you could find someone willing to drive out and help?

Hmmm.. I am from Mass too, but no W.C experince...

Anyways us Bostonians have no need for watercooling. Just shut your heat off during fall/winter/spring, ambient temps are so low all thats left is a good push pull..

that... and a blanket for yourself



The sad part is this isn't even sarcasim....
