Ok Guys for those of you that dont know I found an amazing deal online<br><br><a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413396&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2FnVentiv-Mach-II-Prometeia-Vapor-Computer-Cooling-System_W0QQitemZ160037972454QQihZ006QQcategoryZ80150QQcmdZViewItem%3Fhash%3Ditem160037972454" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/nVentiv-Mach-II-...em160037972454</a><br><br>
$255 for a mach II<br><br>
I Picked it up locally so there was no shipping fee<br><br>
I Broke the flex line and it needed to be repaired<br><br>
Paid $145 for the repair including shipping both ways and a recharge of r507 (I think)<br><br>
The total for this was $400 (how convinient) for a practically brand new Mach II<br><br>
anyway this is the worklog since I will be setting it up in the next few days <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> or whenever it gets shipped<br><br>
Ill start off with a pic of the damage<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/636/1001892ty7.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><img alt="" src="http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/2946/2500171204qc8.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
The Evap head was extremely tarneshed and concave, Ill give it a good lapping before I mount it<br><img alt="" src="http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/7697/2500171207oo0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>

the reason you havent seen it is because I only added the pics now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
anyway my load temp is -15c<br><br>
I still need to put it in a case - I will buy something relatively cheap (CM Centurion or something)<br><br>
anyway I think my temps will improve once I set my proper clocks and everything (not sure what they are at now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> voltage is really high though)
