Think you're PC is pretty sweet rig? Prove it on the PCSTATS Forums! AVID6EEK has posted pictures of his new total loss watercooling system he built together out of an ASUS RAMAGE X58 motherboard and Intel Core i7 920, with a pair of RADEON HD 4870 X2 videocards in Crossfire. The Core i7 is overclocked to a modest 4.61 GHz, and capable of a 145,000 3DMark 03 score!
AVID6GEEK mounted his PC's gear in a banchetto 101. Head on over the PCSTATS Forums and post your own system specs, or drool over AVID's..
Why total loss watercooling? Here's what AVID6EEK has to say; "I'm going to hook my PC up to the water supply in my house. To do this I'm going to have two hoses come up into my office through the floor from the basement. One is going to be the fresh water feed, and the other the drain."
According to AVID6EEK, this means the CPU and videocards will receive: "Stable incoming water temperatures. All
of our water mains are at least 8ft below the ground, which gives them a
relative stable cool temperature. The water comes in at around 65F this time of
the year, and cools to around 50F during the coldest part of the year. This will
give my system sub-ambient water temps all year round." Read his build blog right
