Well, now it's somewhat finished... still on a project stage but running stability tests (and testing the insulation ) at this moment.
Soon it's time to do some major OC'ing...

The setup:
Asus CUSL-2
P3 [email protected]
256 RAM PC-166 CAS2
Geforce 256 32Mb Deluxe
40Gb IBM
SB Live! Value
Realtek RTL8139 NIC

Waterblock S370 a la #Rotor, some pump from a place i can't remember and radiator from Tweety and ofcourse a ICE71 tec.
Temps running idle is 0C, when running "distributed.net" the temp stays nice at 13C and watertemp at 32C
Damn, i love to be back on watercooling again, once there you're hooked... the little pump makes that soothing humm-sound, radiator fan running smoothly on 7V... Mmmm... you gotta love it...

------------------
Honey, i'm so SORRY for spending that cash on my watercooling rig... so sorry... Ouch!!

I wish I had the guts...and the money to go water cooling. O degrees idle would be nice.

Go for it... watercooling has become pretty safe, many has experience and you'll have great support from here and other sites...
HWC got me going with this project on my previous mobos and i think i've had like 3 different mobos and all had a watercooling setup..

The previous mobos was slot1, but this CUSL2 has a S370 directly on mobo which makes it maybe a little harder... hehe, but i made this setup in maybe 2 hours..

I agree as to the water cooling being a viable option, I personally am on Air
.... don't drop dead yet, I am waiting for my swiftech water cooler too arrive, for Slot1, I always went water, but with the P4, I havn't yet, but heck, 1.66v and 29c on Air, @ 1770... aint too bad.

I am building one myself. I can get a free fridge for the water. I ordered blocks of cupper, so I'll make them myself. special hose for les dan half a dollar/meter. A pump for aquariums is gonna cost about 15 dollar or less. Guess thats nice huh? Why buy that expensive stuff......

Hey, be careful with a fridge. A watercooling loop puts out a constant amount of heat, and usually fridges can't get rid of all of it and will break. Remember, the inside of a normal fridge doesn't have any heat producing items. The refrigeration is to replace the cold that escaped... they usually can't handle a constant input of heat.

You could always set up an aquarium chiller and put it in the loop instead of a radiator. This would keep your temps at say 70F constantly. However their quite expensive. Also another cool new product in the latest petwarehouse catalogue. They had a waterproof tec shaped like a cylinder, you screwed it into a hole in the tank (or in this case you rez) and it dropped the temps of a 100 gallon tank 8 degrees Celcius. It had it's own heatsink and everything, quite nice.

Great stuff MBeach, now we're just waiting for the pictures to arrive


I've had a minor setback in my [email protected] plans. I suddenly realized my design was incredibly inefficient, so I've scrapped it for a while. Been thinking of lots of ways to use my Vapo compressor though. I might end up with something along the lines of a baby-CC

The plans involved a lot of bolts, I can send you my CAD sketches if you want to see them, but there's very little point seeing as the design is useless as it is.

That's the bad gnu's, now for the good gnu's. Microplex.no has started stocking up on Leufken 40x40mm 156W pelts
My original plans were slightly hampered by the fact that TEdist don't have any 156W tecs smaller than 48x48mm, so I'll get back to the drawing board to see what I can come up with. It would be too bad to drop my peltier plans when I've got the psu half-done already.
