Gah... Camera broke down, sorry guys.

No pics of the building. All I can say it took a really long time, the tubing was pretty stiff, and I've learned my lesson with worm drive clamps. Use zipties or compression fittings instead.

Well, here are a few pictures of the finished project.

Thanks for the offer miggs, though I'm good.

Don't know if I said already, but I was supposed to get clear tube coils for the all blue look, the camera makes it looks purple-ish.

That being said, the green fit surprisingly well. I'll be keeping this set up until next summer at least.

Again, sorry for the lack of pictures and updates. Would've waited for the new camera, but with school back up, I doubt I would've had enough time.

As you can see also, I moved the triple rad up a spot. Charlie was right. My initial set up would've caused some kinks.

Also not sure if this is supposed to be good temps or not..

So far doing 4.0GHz 445x9 on the E8400 C0, 1.3475 BIOS, 1.280 CPU-Z after vdrop and vdroop. Still testing for prime stable. Temperatures seem to reside between 60-65C. IBT brings these up as high as 75C. Seems a bit high, though I am running the pump on speed 1.

Chipset usually has a steady 40C. couldn't expect much more.

Asus EAH 4870 Dark Knight is holding up well. CCC caused monitor flickers, so now using RivaTuner. No more flicker, but no more Power Play feature either.
Temps stay around 37-40C idle. Haven't tested load yet, but a short load shows around 45C. Will test some more after I'm done with finding the lowest CPU voltage for 4.0GHz. 4.2GHz requires too much juice.

Will keep you guys updated if interested.

Should also mention I picked up one of those Philips Brilliance P-Line H-IPS monitors. Simply a beauty. Doesn't even compare to my old Samsung 931C.

Minor update, looks like I'm stable.



Next up is the video card I guess. Will see how that goes.
