"AquaXtreme 50Z-DC12 - USD $75 - Can be used with different fittings with sized barbs from ” to ”. It is noisier than Laing D5, smaller size than D5, and similar performance as stock DDC 3.2. Uses about 8 watts so actually has performance better than Laing D5.

:: Laing D4/ MCP650 - Not a bad pump but is noisier/whinier version of D5 with lower flow rates. It’s like the uglier sister you have to date being a wingman.
"

Either you can't even read properly or have vision problems. There it is above for you to read.

You can't even read the biggest font in red and with double reminder twice not to comment in a section I was working on. Then you commented again and then you went running like a kid and complained about it instead of being mature and posting a separate thread elsewhere like I asked you too. I wasted like 2-3 hours because of that. I corrected you several times and still don't have any points to make. I PM'ed you and you didn't even read it and went and posted in here again.

You just got embarrassed the first time and continue to do it to yourself. I'll just kept correcting you and now your sore instead of realizing you had gaps of information. You just keep assuming stuff and haven't made one valid point. The only solution is I'm ignoring you because you don't anything relevant info to offer me and I don't associate myself with people who can't read properly.

The Odyssey Continues...

Man, I haven't been on here forever!

Nice guide! I eventually stopped updating my 'Before Asking Questions' guide and it fell into disuse (college'll do that to you...), but this is an excellent replacement to carry on the tradition.

Now that I have a have a lab to play in and I'm most of the way to a degree in chemical engineering, I've thought a little about getting back into things and carrying out my own equipment tests instead of just gathering other people's data. Stats such as pressure drop and flow rate would be incredibly easy to measure with the tools I've got now, so the only real issue is $$$. One can only justify spending so much on toys! Hahah, at least at the moment...

In any case, good luck with this project, and let me know if you'd like any specific help. Don't let the crazies get you down, either; you'll just be wasting your time if you stand and fight.

Cheers!
-BC

EDIT: You joined the site 15 days after my final edit... pretty funny stuff! :TIDE

Thank you for posting this thread. This will be my wcing bible!

I was originally going to buy a kit, but now I feel comfortable enough to build a system myself.

Thanks again!

Unhappy Heater Cores

I guess i've been away for a while, my water loop is still running great.
What changed, why are heatercores suddenly bad, It was this guide and others that recommended the HC for my buid circa nov 2006.
Do i need to pull it out of my loop?

Heatercores also include various hidden cost like modding, barbs, shrouds, and mounting gear. Pick the Swiftech MCR/RES if you want to save money and your time.

You can still use heatercores. They are no longer recommended to use for new builds.

The radiator section is still a mess so I apologize. It will be edited to focus more on products. Lots of new information and research I did for radiator performance. I'm removing that section into a separate thread in the future.

When you say 50/50 anti-freeze (Buy 50/50% AF($8)) are you talking about automotive anti-freeze?

NB/SB Waterblocks

I have been searching everywhere but i cannot find waterblocks that say they fit a MSI 790FX-GD70 MB. Is it to new or just not needed?

System.
AMD 955 - OCed to 3.8 at the moment
MSI 790FX-GD70
4gig Mushkin DDR3 RAM
CoolMaster ATCS 840 case
ATI 4850 (plan to get a 4890 2gig soon)
working on a custom WC set but stuck on the Block for the NB/SB

Thanks for any help I can get.

The guide has been an awesome help.

Additional Comment:

For measurements i got 53mm for my NB, 48mm for my SB and 88mm for my MOSFET.

NB the Koolance CHC-122.
SB the Koolance CHC-125.
MOSFET Coolance MVR-40 w/86mm plate.

I wanted the Enzotech WMST-88 for the MOSFET but cant find anyone that sells it.

Thanks for any input.

No need to water cool the mosfets and the southbridge. Northbridge just needs a fan.

My 2 cents

Thankyou so much for all that work you did on your water cooling guide. As a complete novice to water cooling I used it extensively and am about to assemble my first one. I was impressed with it's neutral tone, no ranting or condecesion, a very proffessional approach to dissemenating information, and so thorough. Thank you.

I am not sure if it is Pattas. There aren't TOO many things that would need to be changed though, just a few areas, most particularly some of the parts sections. It is still pretty accurate though overall.
