You could just clean your watercooling parts every so often.

too much work lol
i got everyhting done today installing vista 64 bit now
**** is taking long time but ohhwell

started it up today and it didnt want to turn on, started for 2 seconds than restarting and restarted, so i got the whole thing out and tested it on a cardboard and taook some ram out and what u know, the ram was not even in all the way, fixed that and fixed the problem

heres some pics, runs smooth, 27 C

i dont remember temps so i dont know if this is warm or cool lol, last time i was a on a pc was a year ago.

hopefully i get no leaks and i just mixed some liquid in the water, dont really care too much the whole water wetup cost me 40 bucks, but its very nice and quiet
other than that i can wait to get the q6600 rolling, im hoping for 4ghz 24/7 stable


ohh man that was actually fast, seems like it got done vista that is

heres some pics, no clear coat on case, too lazy lol but would have looked alot better






all that was done before i ripped it out and tested it, now looks alot better

I'm just wondering, isn't it a risk having the components on carpet? I thought that static electricity could potentially be harmful to parts. Either way, I'd be interested to know if that's the case or not.

I really like that color scheme, that seems like a magnificent build for $450, did you buy the parts off of ebay or what (sorry if I missed that part).

hmm, i really didnt put any parts on the carpet. i lay them on a cardboard, its still very unlikely a static charge would go off but it could and damage something, but like i said the case iis on the carpet but no bare metal, all painted lol

and i got the parts off craigslist, freinds, and ocn forums
bought the video card for 120, probaly my biggest spender. I still want a 4890 really bad

i try to saty away from ebay, but i haVE HAD GOOd luck with them too, and bad.

and about the color scheme, once the case is closed you cant see anything, it just looks like a standard pc but when it comes off it looks real nice
