Here's a couple of pics that I took of my computer and parts. The picture quality is really crappy because I don't have the best lighting, but it should at least be enough to see the size of my radiator. I'll get a pic of my fan in a few minutes.<br><br>
Edit: Got the pic of the fan. Note the power strip on the very left of the picture. That should give you a reference to compare its size. You can also see the 120mm exhaust fan on the back of my tower to the right. The fan is a radiator fan off of a '74 Subaru. It is running on 5 volts and moves plenty of air to keep my 437W TEC nice and chilly while also being completely silent.<br><br>
Double Edit: I'm running a Winstch Labs 437w Arctic Web TEC, SeltzL35 (modified with 1/2" ID barbs), and 2 automotive heatercores. The pics show the size of the heatercores and the fan. -25°C idle and -5°C full load on an X2 3800+ at 2.6Ghz and 1.55v.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/b/bc/bc44b591_vbattach32971.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/bc/525x525px-LL-bc44b591_vbattach32971.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:394px;"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/0/0b/0b4d14bc_vbattach32972.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/0/0b/525x525px-LL-0b4d14bc_vbattach32972.jpeg" style="width:394px;height:525px;"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/9/99/9919de11_vbattach32974.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/9/99/525x525px-LL-9919de11_vbattach32974.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:394px;"></a>

That's an impressively old looking case.

Yeah, the case had a PII in it when I got it. I modded the back panel for the 120mm fan, put a 120mm intake in the front on the bottom, and modded the side panel to have a Lexan window. Right now it's kind of messy inside becaues I've been doing experimenting with hard drives, moving stuff around, but you usually can't see more than a few wires.

It's a cheap 6.1 Mp "Digital Concepts" camera from Walmart.<br><br>
If you want to see a closeup of any of my components, just ask and I'll try to get more detailed pictures.

What is your loop like? I see you have 4 ports on your block, where do they go? Maybe just sketch a diagram in MSpaint?

What exactly do you want to see? The base? The CPU? Or just closer up in my case?<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

OK, I got it. Thanks. So no reservoir and a 4 port block, with dual radiators. Very unique setup! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

I'm going to take it all apart tonight and reapply AS Ceramiq and do some cable organizing. I'll get more detailed pics up later on.

I like it mate<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I am getting my water block modded like yours for the 2 in 2 out so with some luck performance will be similar to match the almighty block you have<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Looking good mate.

I would really like to see how you have it all insulated... im wondering for my setup

Nice! <br />

Just curious did you use acrylic conformal spray on the board, or maybe something else?

Conformal coating between the sheets of insulation (can't think of what the stuff is called right now...) and dielectric grease between the board and the insulation. The socket is thoroughly filled with dielectric grease, and the bottom layer of insulation is covered with grease. I haven't had <i>any</i> condensation as of yet.<br />
<br />
Edit: My girlfriend <i>borrowed</i> my new digital camera and left it at her house so I won't be getting pics up tonight. Hopefully tomorrow after work I'll get them up.

Nice rig! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> What coolant temps are you getting?

I don't have any temp sensors in the coolant, but it can't be any more than a couple of degrees above room temp. The tubing and radiator always feel cold to the touch. Combining the huge fan with the dual radiators makes for an extremely capable watercooling system. If I had to venture a guess by comparing my 120mm fans to my rad fan, the big fan pushes somewhere around 600cfm at 5 volts.<br />
<br />
I got a new digital multimeter that has a temperature function with a remote probe, so I'm testing right now. At idle my water is right at 25°C. I'll run Prime95 for a bit to find my load water temp.<br />
<br />
Edit: Room temperature is 23°C.<br />
<br />
After running two instances of Prime95 for about 10 minutes, the water temperature rose to 26°C. CPU temp with TEC running on about 9v is 28°C. This is after taking the TEC off the processor multiple times without reapplying thermal paste.

I know, the digital camera I use isn't the best... It's a Walmart "Digital Concepts" camera. Plus the lighting in my room is horrible. I had to get way back, turn the flash on, and use the digital zoom to get pics that weren't either entirely too bright (from the flash) or too small from being so far away.
