    nice work with the floppy drive, on mine ( http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14752 ) i stealthed it by using velcro to hold one of the bay overs over it, as i use it like twice a year :).

    I need to put a little nob of some kind on it to pull it out tho as i cant just keep using a small screwdriver lol :)

    Keep up the good work, this is gonna be one sweet case

    There's been a slight change in direction with the project. Due to the rad which I bought leaking and me feeling extra specially stupid today I decided to make a bong. Here are the results as pictures rather than text as I'm tired and everyone loves pictures :hehe:

    Water goes from the res (toy box) through the system's waterblocks then through a showerhead at the top of the pipe, then cold air blows in throught the hopper on the Y piece, then water goes back to the res. It's far from perfect but I've got 41 degrees constant full load (seti) right now :D

    I've seen wierd watercooling rigs... but I think this tops the lot....

    it looks like it would be effective.... i'd be rather worried about having that much water near electrical stuff... i mean a whole toy box full... that's a lorra lorra water!

    It's only a small leak, must have happened in transit. It was easily fixed but I wanted to try the bong. My rather bodged first attempt is still working great so when I perfect it I'm expecting great results :)

    You guys have 29 months over there in the UK? ;)

    Nice work on the bong. I've been a fan of these for awhile now, I believe I read it is the most efficient way of cooling.

    AHHHH! MY EYES! LoL. Resize the pics, they are a tad big, and some of them are a tad brighte, others are a tad dark... I like the word tad =).

    You stole my floppy drive idea! :p . Actually not quite, but pretty close, hehe. Oh well, I suppose that's what happens when you are poor and you can't afford parts to mod, hehe.

    I like what you've done so far, keep up the good work.

    /me is confused too



    Sorry about the brightness/darkness, it's my cheapo camera. It's great during the day, but after dark if you use the flash it's too bright and if you don't it's too dark. Not a lot I can do I'm afraid except mod during the day. As for the size does anyone else find them too large? I thought they were too small if anything!

    Update:

    I'm afraid it's a sad day for the bong :sigh: It was a great experiment, and I really enjoyed making it, but sadly it's just too loud to be inkeeping with the ethos of my project - besides I still couldn't sleep with it on.

    Anyway, today on the way back from college I decided to pay a visit to B&Q for some "christmas shopping". I came back with yet another bargain powertool and a rather large sheet of perspex. I'll be busy with these over the next few hours so expect to see an update very shortly...

    At the time the listed last update date as 29/11 (November 11) the way they do it in the UK.(and other places for all I know) I was making a smart remark becuase the way we list dates in the US it would have been 11/29. So I made the comment on 29 months, becuase in the US it would be the 29th month. I see my lame attempt at humor was lamer than I thought....

    I actually made the same comment in Linear's project log (except the opposite way round of course ;)). If I wasn't so damn tired I probably would have realised :sigh:

    that perspex i hav used before and it is much easier just to score it a few time then snap it over a sharp edge then it is to go at it with a jigsaw or dremel
