|Building new gaming system - AMD 2800 Barton - Watercooled|
|Got the "waterbox"/tank from Elfa|
|The goldish nut's came from a plumbershop|
|Started drilling small holes and the made the larger with a sandstone "drill" to make the holes prefect.|
|The white stuff on the "screw" is a tape that plumber use to tighten the threads.
Also put on a rubber gasket.
|To be extra safe, I put on some silicon.|
|Put on silicon here to.|
|Sprayed the inside and the lid with this plasticspray to prevent corotion of the box material.|
|Befor sealing the box, I put on alot of silicon on the edges.|
|And outside aswell.|
|Here is a hole going to be for the pump 220V cable.|
|Rubber gasket to prevent the cable to breake on the sharp edges.|
|Dont forget to vacume the inside of the case befor puting in the MB and shit.|
Asus A7N8X Deluxe
|Came with the MB.|
|Heatsinks on the nVidia chipset|
|It has to go, because I already got the waterblock for it...|
ATI Radeon 9700 PRO, 128MB DDR.
|Heatsinks with fan, have to go...|
|It was alittle bit shaky to remove this heatsinks, because even tought I had removed the plastic clips that hold it in place, the heatsinks was stuck to the CPU hard, and I dident know how much force I could put on it or if there was something else holding it together.|
|But it was the cooling paste that hold it so tight.|
AMD Barton 2800+ runs at 2.083GHz
|The hose I got was alittle to large so I had to use some tools to screw on the nipples that hold them in place. Thats why I conected everything first and then put them in place.|
|The waterblockes I got was:
CPU block: INNOVACOOL V3 WATERCOOLER
Chipset & Graphics card: INNOVAGRAPH-O-MATIC VGA/NB
|Removed the backplate of the Chieftec case and let the powersupply rest on the bottom plate inside the case. Then the radiator fits perfectly ontop, and I dont need to make some new holes in the case side.
Radiator: INNOVARADI SINGLE 120
Fan: PAPST FAN 120CM 26dB
|Put in staffthread to make a shelf for the watertank.|
|The hoses goes like this:
|Started filling the system with distilled water, but I ran out of it so I took normal tap water, and I also put in alittle of this antialgefluid.|
|To be extra safe I put silicon on the pump aswell.|
|More than I need of every thing.|
|Found the floppy from an old computer. Do people still use thos things?|
Seagate Barracuda V, 80 GB.
More than I need for a computer that only going to have Battlefield 1942 on it...
Also put a silent 80mm fan infront of the HD.
Fan: PAPST 80mm 1500rpm 12dB.
|To get the most out of the memory and the dual channels, I got 2x256MB PC 3200 memorys.|
|To prevent that the hot air that comes out of the powersupply going back in through the radiator. Im leading the hot air away from the computers.|
|This looks much better then what I resonly got.|
|What my old system did look like.|
