    a nice overview/tour of watercooling. Take the setup from begining to end with lota nice large pictures and explanations as to why thigs are setup the way they are. And if possible it would be nice if it was a totally DIY setup, like making the blocks, the tubing, even the res, finding a good radiator/pump and whatnot...

    I would like to see a way to go from IDE to USB. I know that they make external HD enclosures, but what about CD-RWs and Floppy drives. I would like a way to make my existing aparati portable. Can this be done?

    Heres a link for the adapter.
    For power you could hack up a 12v transformer and connect it to a molex plug; Zap might know how to do this. :D

    Hmm, I might buy that adapter, and RIP IT APART!!!!! Aha, sorry wanted to say it like that. I would rip it apart so that I could see what I needed to dupliacted it. I have to believe that I can make one for less that $40.

    2 power supplies

    Hi. I recently bought a new case with a 500W PSU, but i decided that i would

    like to have a second PSU just for lights,fans,etc. i was wondering, how i

    could wire the PSU's so when i turn on my computer, it would turn on both

    PSU's at the same time. I know this is possible to do because i once saw it, i

    just don't know how to do it. Thnx in advance. :confused:

    Hi, i also have a sencond question. I have recently bought a 6 port baybus

    switch (http://www.xoxide.com/6portbaybus.html) and i was wondering, if

    there is a way that i could wire it, so i would have to flick the switches in a

    pattern to be able to enable the power button to work.

    Simple version of what i mean.

    6 port baybus, flick siwtches in a secret sequence (kinda like a password) if i

    don't flick the right switches in the right order, power will not be sent to

    power button, rendering the button useless. This seems impossible for me,

    because i am unexperienced with electronics, But i know ZapWizard is like the

    king of wiring. So someone plz help me out.

    actually, unless you had the tools to duplicate IC's, it going to cost alot more than 40$. unfortunately, IDE>USB has a contoller chip that i doubt you could buy seperately.

    Here and here are two schematics that can be utilized for a project like this if anyone wants to make one. I'll make a guide for it if no one does it or when I have the time.

    I'd like to see a guide completely coving carputers: audio inputs, powering 500+watt psu's (mobile gaming rig once pcix is out.) and also covering air conditioning to help with the heat, so that you don't have your whole ac system blasting at once (only the feed to the pc.)

    Bits and speed tables for dremel users

    Would be grateful if someone could make a table of the recommended bits and rotation speed to use for different type of materials(plexi, steel, alu, etc). This can help the most stupid of us not to melt the plexi with a :dremel: :duh: :blush:

    jjsyht: Just search google for dremel manual, it should come up with results for the dremel manual in pdf format. Download it, in the manual there are 3 pages with the recommeded speeds for certain bits and materials. They use the dremel model numbers and the dremel speeds, like 1-5 on a certain dremel etc. But i just use the guide to get an estimate of the speed i have to put my cheap clone on, its not to hard to figure out the speed.

    What I think would make areally good mod guide for the few of us new to dremmels. How to use certain bits properly, how to make smooth edges, and most off all how to make fine detailed cut using certain bits like the cut off wheels and various other bits, and maybe a few tricks so as not to screw up on cutting edges,etc. I know I will proberly learn all these thing as i work with my dremmel more. All i can do now is make straight cuts and small curves. Enlighten me with all your great skillz. :dremel: :dremel: :dremel:
