Hi Yan! I'm overclocking it because I can, I certainly don't need to! ":O}

Danroks putting up an "Ergonomics" article for me to day, new monitor and servo arm for it...might be of interest to you. 1680X1050, a ticket to gaming Paradise! ":O}

You aim to where you are going then press the appropriate button, (can't remember of the top of my head) it will transport you to the panel, you have to act quick and go over to the panel and activate it. Then the lasers are off. After that is the guy I can't beat....

Looks like I will be joining the 8800 club early next week. I just sold one of my phase change units and picked up a GTS. I'll have to see when July 22nd rolls around if I am going to get a Q6600 or grab another GTS for SLI.

Must have been hard to get off that cooler, but the 8800's or Quad will do your heart good.... your a big hearted guy, you may need both!":O}

My theory is, if a little is good a lot is better and way too much is just right. I might have to do the Quad and another 8800. Kind of limits my upgrade path and doesn't give me anything else to shoot for though.

It didn't have a problem letting it go, it was a little difficult to sell though. Small market for an item that is somewhat loud, needs alot of attention and voids the warranty of your components.

The noise was my main gripe about that particular unit. My new setup uses a larger condensor with twin 140mm fans at 7volts instead of a single 120. Much better. I'll get the pics up in the phase change thread as soon as my panels come back from being powder coated.

For me it was the condensation, I just got tired of having to 'Dry" it out every 2 or 3 months. Also the attachments were always a pain in ass to get right, then only worked half assed. But maybe I just never got it right.":O}

Ok who else was blown away by the need of THREE slots if you use stock cooling? And Who among us knew it would be three slots rather than two before buying? Just curious, a wrong answer will not void your warranty...as such...

I couldn't afford to lose any of the poorly placed pci slots on my Asus so I had to make a stop at danger den. When/If I go SLI I will have to grab another but it's better than having the fan on the GPU cooler sucking dust off the floor of my case.

I will be in good shape when they start making sound cards with a PCI-E interface.

OOOOO....shiny. That is a nice looking block there. Full cover blocks usually dump a lot of heat in your loop. Care to throw a review together?

That was funny.

I'll do my best to spin up a review that doesn't require too much editing.

Not too worried about the extra heat. I gathered up enough parts from forums to build a separate loop for the GPU and Northbridge. Now all I need is a couple of hours to get everything done.
