Default Captain v Charlie3.0 Revision 1

Ok i stumbled into HWC one day by surfing google .
Once i got to the forums i met Charlie3.0 (just a super great guy)
So i was asking him how do i get a water cooling system built.
Thats when Charlie introduced me to CaptVortex and the build began!!!

So i had the CaptVortex build my first ever watercooled system!! and heres what it looked like :

Now i have to say that this system was built with these specs :

The RAM is Gskill 4GB kit of 1000MHZ
Case is going into my Silverstone TJ09 with a MCR220 up top for CPU cooling
Shiny Apogee GT (bowed) block! (thanks to charlie3.0)
Xeon E3110
ATI 4870
Antec 850 PSU
Xonar DX Sound Card
MSI P35 Neo2 MB

see pic:

And the temps CaptVortex got at the time were :

At stock speeds, CPU idles at 31, Load 44
Also, I did a quick run of 3DMark06 with some Balistix 2GB 800MHZ kit, cause the Gskill isnt in yet. Pulled about 13k. Remeber this is in Vista 64 bit, so the numbers are actually pretty darn good.

A quick bump to 400fsb got me 3.6GHZ stable at 1.12V..... Not too shabby at all. Load temps stayed the same! Havent benched yet at 3.6, but will soon. The BIOS is pretty straight forward, and easy to overclock with. It's not as intense as my DFI board, but it is welcome to have such simplicity. (this was copy and pasted from captVortex)

Now the only bad !!! was and still is !!! (the mobo chose a silly place for the 8Pin EPS connector)

So advance time a year and a half later (sept.12,2009)
i am in the process of installing a:
XFX GTX275 vid card:

A Koolance waterblock;

A Swiftech MPC655 water pump:

Auzen X-plosion sound card:

Laser etched window pane:

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/7408/moose2.jpg

Now i am not to happy with the laser etching i had done , so in the future i am going to have it redone to a better 3d etching:)

A Razor Lachesis Mouse:

A Razor lycosa keyboard:
http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/7432/keyboardsx.jpg

I also want to thank Jackie leggs for selling me my Razor Lycossa keyboard





Now in the near future i am going to buy a new better Motherboard
don't know what yet ????
The last decision i will have is to what chip i should put in this sytem !!! Quad Core???

so Any advice?

BTW i named the system after CaptVortex and Charlie3.0
Hence Capt V Charlie:)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE NEW AND TRANSFORMED CVC(Capt V. Charlie3.0 )

Ok first and foremost!!!! I want to thank HWC for just a fantastic site !!!!!

Then I really want to thank:
Charlie3.0(Just a fantastic person in general and helped me so many times on here i can't count them all!! +100 (the GTX 275 Kicks Arse bud )
Next Cowboy (The Boreas )
Then Jay51 for the MM case!!!!
Then JMCD For the Water fittings etc etc :) Again just a super nice guy
Then jtf2 What a great guy he sold me a 655 pump with a ek for it as well as a 150 ek rez as well as many other items!!!!!

Ok Ok now with some quick pics , these arn't the best p[ics but Meh:)

That should do it for the time being :)


So again Welcome the new CVC3.0:)
