I DL from Giganews using their accelerator software and 10 concurrent connections, it stays pinned at 23mbit, 2.8 mbytes/sec

Brain&Sqee, speed is one thing, reliability, customer service, monthly bw caps, over usage charge rates, etc are another. Just look at how much you pay for those connections and how what you are paying for stacks up against other areas of the world. Canada is in the toilet when it comes to telecommunication and such in general.

I didn't know this! Kinda neat when you think about it. I might have to do the same.

I'm going to build one of these this week and will post a couple of pics.

Always liked Eldonko's builds' but that just couldn't happen in my room....

Personally the radiator in the esky of ice and water was my favourite, have you tried adding salt, it will lower the freezing point (and thus melting point) of ice and give you another 4-5C I would guess. The copper radiator and the hose clamps should all be corrosive free, just need a good rinse afterwards.

Well that was an excellent observation but that is why he commented to give the bolts 1mm of play. I built one and could only get 2 of the bolts in but it is mounted very firmly and the other bolts are acting like posts. Overall my cooling project lowered my load temps by 10C so far;

Air Cooling Project: 101. Lowered CPU load by 9-10C

Yes the cable management sucks but the rest is going fine.
