    Yep....
    Vapo(CPU), Pelt(GPU) & H20(GPU)
    Now heres the hard part...
    Its all has to fit inside an Antec Lanboy case...

    Here are my current system specs
    2.8ghz p4 "C'
    1024mb Corsair TwinX PRO
    Pwoercolour X800XT PE
    2x120gb IDE
    2x200gb SATA
    Abit IS7 (cheap but good)

    New components
    DD Maze4 GPU Pelt kit
    BIX2
    HYDOR L30 II

    Change of plan no more vapo...
    heres the finished product

    All installed... running nicely
    tooook absolutely forvever to fill... due to position of everything being out of wack, had to remove pump and lower it to get it working

    cpu temps (stock 2.8ghz, northy)
    idle 30C
    load 35C

    x800xt (630mhz core) is this ok for a 80w peltier?
    idle -10c
    load 25c

    It makes me cringe when my ati goes below 0 (even though it is completly sealed and condensation proof

    is there a program that I can use to keep my ati above 0??
    first 3dmark run 14,561 (its on dezza...)

    I wouldn't even think about keeping the Vapochill filled and in tact while doing this.. the tubes are very thin and you get a 'knik' (dunno the english word, like a dent on the place where you bend it) very easily.

    Why not empty the system, make your mod in all peace and then, when you're ready, let the system be refilled? If you refill it with the correct stuff (like R507) you'll even get better performance.

    The way to bend these thin copper tubes is by filling them with beach-sand, and then bend them.

    Moved to Modding in accordance with forum rules.

    no pics = no log. When you have done some modding work on your case and the pics are up, let a moderator or admin know and we'll move it to Project Logs.

    Good luck with it :dremel: :)

    Ok... found a good imagehost
    Could an admin move this back to project logs? ta

    Today I mounted a five bay 3 1/2 in the top four 5 1/4 bays
    This signifigantly increased my internal space, which will be needed for the watercooling

    onto the piccies

    Starting off...

    you may want to think about either swapping the vapo for a prommie or a vapo LS or figuring out somewhere else to put it because the orig vapochills dont like being any place other than just above the cpu, they dont cool properly if you try to place them somewhere else.

    looks ace so far. However, i'd consider cutting the bottom off of that hdd cage so you can stuff a optical drive in under it.
