    its kinda hard to do wire management on an acyrlic case. Sleeving the PSU was enough for me :)

    The only thing really special about it is the motherboard (EPIA ME 6000) the slim DVD rom and the case that I build myself out of a metal parts sorting thing. Painted and drew the design with a sharpe. I've added some green 4 leaf clovers since the picture...

    But I'm about to upgrade it and add another hard drive and full size DVD-R drive. So its time to build a new case

    i could but dont want to. the cost isn't worth it IMO. they stay decently cool with the fan above them pulling the air out anyways.

    not to mention cooling your hdd would restrict cooling to the cpu.

    amd athlon xp-m 2500+ 1.575V 2.4GHz, 36C idle, 40C load. NB, VPU, and CPU on the same loop. I have a pretty shitty CPU block though, a D-Tek Spiral.

    MMM my ding ding dong
    I have no pics, it's just a plainjane looking computer. My specs however:

    AMD Athlon XP-M @ 2.5ghz (217 x 11.5)
    ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe rev 2
    1GB pc3200 RAM
    320GB RAID 0
    9700 Pro w/ Coolmaster heatpipe
    Liteon DVD burner


    uhh that's all I can think of right now.

    And a 2200 XP @ ~2ghz for a second system
     
  21. ahhh.
    but you would still make noise with those fans, as opposed to having them water cooled. fans cooling hhe hard drive kinda spolis it for me. IMHO. your setup is still dope.
    is the radiator silent?

    Watercooling is almost always *louder* than air cooling. There are a few exceptions, but remember how watercooling works...

    Watercooling uses liquid to transfer heat from vital components to the radiator. However, once a radiator gets hot, it looses effeciency exponentially until the system can no longer cool the vital components. So you need to pass air through the radiator so that heat is transfered to the air. This is the same exact principle used in your car. Coolant transfers heat from your engine to your radiator, and then a fan draws air through the radiator to cool the radiator. If your car has electric fans, they can shut off when you're driving because actually driving the car at speed will ram air through the radiator. However, I doubt you're running around fast enough with your case to do this passively -- thus you require fans to cool your radiator.

    In essence, water cooling is much like air cooling... However, you are not as limited because you can get a much greater surface area on a radiator than you could on a heatsink -- and you can get more airflow to transfer a greater amount of heat (this assumes you're not doing any thermoelectric cooling).

    And we don't want to forget the additional noise of a pump.

    So some w/c setups may be quieter than air-only rigs... But the majority are no-less noisy (if not more-noisy) than their air-only counterparts. Mainly because you still usually need some fans.

    my watercooling is definately not quieter than the average computer, but definately quieter than the POS thermaltake HSF i was using before.
