Well folks, it is done... except for the fact that I ran out of tubing. Anyway, my Danger Den order came in and I got the system installed (to a point). I will be posting pictures on Wednesday night.

As far as I can see, my only complain is the GPU block. Heavy little bugger. Anyway, I expect to get the rest of the tubing from Home Depot and be done right after dinner. Thanks to all who gave encouragement, direction and/or just asked questions.

I have thought about that. I saw a very nice piece of aluminum at the hardware store... maybe a box is in order.

should work pretty well, just remember not to put the fan on, I doubt it'll move snow very well. And make sure your mobo is condensation proofed just in case


God, I havent gone to sleep yet, and Im sure people have gone to sleep and woken up by now! :-/

And my job is a student. And I couldnt sleep to save my life last night. Though on the bright side, I beat Halo 2 at about 8:45 this morning. The ending made me very angry, but I wont go any farther than that.

The WC setup is up and running now.. CPU Temp at the moment is 32C, mobo is 44C. Running only 1 fan in the case. Ran Falcon 4.0 with all the bells and whistles enabled, temps didn't flinch. CPU is overclocked, so is the GPU. I am happy.

Processing pics as we speak. Will post some in a few hours.

It was done after the picture.

Update, mobo temps went down to 27C. Yipee!
