My System Specs

Default Yay, completed my first loop.

I don't know if it's just me, but there's a huge sense of accomplishment now that it's done. I had two leaks in the first couple minutes, but those were quick fixes and now it's running leak free. Hopefully it'll bleed itself out when I get up in the morning (afternoon, ) and I'll get some pics, temps, and maybe if I'm feeling not lazy enough, a pseudo-worklog from the pictures I took throughout the process - it was a semi case mod/wc project I wanted to do with some spare parts...and a lot of new parts.


Also, I think I just wasted a bunch of money.

Well, I'm just joking a bit, but I didn't need to spend any of that cash. I'm happy with what I did regardless. Unfortunately though, from the point where I tested all my components after getting them all and now, I seemed to have damaged my motherboard somehow...argh.

How often do we upgrade because we really 'need' to? Hell, I'd still be running S939 if I only upgraded if I needed to.

Keep in mind that this cooling will help protect your investment and that is reason enough that it isn't a waste. It will also be more adaptable to future upgrades than a standard cooler. :)

Damaged your motherboard? Uh oh. What's up!?
