Thats it I think......

The pics below show my computer, and all of my BAWLS! And Mints!! W00t!!
Before I built this computer, I purchased 400 Bottles of Bawls. I took pictures of most of them, and of the ones i've drank. I also had 15, 12 packs of Pop (variety, MT Dew, Code Red, A&W, Pepsi)

Ill tell ya what, I was kinda nervous modding my Video Card for water cooling...had to remove the heatsink/fan assembly, and EVERYTHING on it. I replaced the smaller chips heatsinks with Zalman ones, and threw the waterblock onto the VPU. This was my first watercooling experience, and I had NO problems with it! And my whole system is running at under 100F.

Anyways, im sure ur tired of reading, so HERES THE PICS! W00t!


The first image is my CPU waterblock installed. Very cool huh?

Another image of it, but without the lights on...

The one below is of my VGA waterblock...tried to get the best pic i could without removing the card.

Another....


AND THAT'S IT! I have more pics, but I think this is too many already...lol!!!

Maybe a better one?

Water Cooling Resovior

Inside watercooling Resovior

Inside my case, here i was formatting it, needed the SATA drivers, so I had to put in a floppy drive...but I refuse to keep it in my computer, so I didnt mount it..just left it during windows installation

Perhaps a better pic of inside my case.

My cupholder/cig lighter and Dvd drives

Cupholder IN ACTION! W00t!

Back of my PC before I attatched second monitor.
