  1. hmm yeah I did most of that stuff... my watercooling is positioned in such a way that it's highly unlikely for any fluid to get onto pc components so I don't think leaky coolant is the problem. I've led the components "dry out" for about 2 days before turning the computer on again and still the problem persists. I'm beginning to think the power supply might be the culprit here but then again it ran fine for a year and a half. technodanvan, thanks for the advice, now that you mention it i do recall reading that somewhere... will remember not to pull the battery anymore. unfortunately i dont have a DMM to test my psu with but i'll probably borrow a friend's this weekend. hmm who knows maybe its not worth replacing components anymore? maybe i should just do a new build...
  2. hmm no haven't tried that yet maybe i'll ask a friend to use his see if that changes anything... although i see power going to the motherboard, all the lights are lit, fans are spinning, etc. just no post and no beep
  3. Ok so here's the situation: I was fixing some watercooling stuff one day and I put my system back together, when I restarted the pc, all I get is NO VIDEO, fans spin, everything seems to be getting power, MOTHERBOARD IS STUCK ON 4 DIAGNOSTIC LEDS, and there's NO POST, NO POST BEEP, the screen is dark, and it has a amber stand-by light instead of the green when normally turned on. Things I've tried already: 1. 24, 48hours CMOS clear (the right way, removing and replacing the battery) 2. hotflashing BIOS chip in friend's computer and replacing it in mines 3. testing out friend's ram in my own board 4. doing a minimal build, same problem 5. running the board without a videocard, then without a cpu or videocard, all yielding same problem Guys if there's anyone that can help it's you all knowledgeable people. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is, I just got my motherboard back from DFI RMA process and I can't believe it's giving me problems again. Or maybe it's the cpu? videocard? power supply? PLEASE I NEED YOUR HELP, ANY BIT OF USEFUL INFO IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
  4. i've done a complete CMOS clear... meaning everything is back to optimal settings or whatever so i can't get into bios since the computer wont post. I've unhooked everything but the bare essentials: just put my motherboard, videocard, ram, and cpu and i always get the same thing. I have the same ram as you ganders, and I tested the board with different ram and I get the same problem.
  5. boooo nobody has any more insight into this? besides the old "did you 24h cmos clear?"
  6. i'm going to try with a different stick of memory maybe tomorrow or the day after to see if that helps
  7. tried that already... doesnt seem to help any. I thought i might've connected something incorrectly and that's why the front power led was flashing but i checked the connections and everything's right..... still can't fix this.
  8. Alright so i took out my mobo cuz i wanted to install the rest of my watercooling stuff, anyway after a few leaks, i got it up and running, but every time i turn on the computer it gets stuck on the 3 LED's... that tells me it's a memory issue... but I don't see how that's possible, it ran fine before I tinkered with it earlier today. also I noticed that the hard drive read led is constantly on and the Power Led keeps flashing on and off.... anyone have any ideas as to what might be the cause? any help is greatly appreciated! ~specs are in sig below
  9. just like you i didn't think it would make a difference once the flow started going. it makes sense to me that the temperatures would equalize eventually but i think what happened is that my radiator wasn't completely filled with coolant due to the awkward direction of flow and so the trapped air was probably heating up the coolant. once i changed it back to the right order of flow i saw a huge drop in temps
  10. hmm wouldn't that setup result in a flow water pressure drop as it goes into the cpu block since the radiator precedes it? anyway here's pictures of my rig: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02924.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02912.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02906.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02897.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02888.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02880.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02871.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/sac...s6/DSC02857.jpg
  11. hmm thanks for the advice guys! i went ahead and switched it so that the flow is the way it should be.... haha filling the system was MUCH easier this time around.... and temps dropped 4*C EDIT: i'll put up some pics later on!
  12. so I just got some new tubing as i started noticing some bacterial growth in my last watercooling system, and as I was putting everything back together I screwed up the order of the flow: instead of: pump-->cpu bloc-->240rad-->reservoir-->pump i did: pump-->reservoir-->240rad-->cpu bloc-->pump so my question is this: is there going to be a big difference in temperatures if i leave my system configured this way? i really don't feel like draining the system and taking everything out again, but if i need to i will. thanks for any feedback!
  13. I'm looking to buy a used (but working!) nvidia geforce 7800gtx the 256mb version. preferably XFX, but doesn't matter, as long as it works! don't need box or cables, or even the heatsink, just the card itself! looking to spend around 100-110$ USD PM me if interested!
  14. the loop you described is exactly what I wanted to do when i was installing the components but I just couldnt fit the tubing in a way that would accompany such a setup. The one I have now is the only one that made sense to me that I could actually make work... I love the lian li pcv1000b, but I'll admit, it definitely is a bit small to work with.
