    L :eek: :eek: K at that, Whoot. That looks really sweet man. I see your hose routing looks like it works much better than mine. This is something I want to change over the holidays as its a bit of a pain right now on my rig as the "T" line just gets in the way of everything. The rad you used looks kinda ghetto with the copper tubes visible which adds a lot to the look. Nice job!

    processor not recognized

    I belive you need to use the C19 beta bios when using Opteron on nF3 Ultra-D board. See Here: http://www.dfi.com.tw/Support/Download/bio..._FLAG=B&SITE=NA

    FYI, RAD works fine in the bottom of the case. Also being at the lowest point in the loop all the fluid drains into the rad, so it acts like a resevoir. The hose routing I have right now is not the best, as one of the hoses blocks off PCI slots, so getting a card in and out of the case is a bit of a pain, but I plan on fixing that very soon with new hose routing. I just need to find some time to pull everything apart, and cut some new hoses. If you try a triple rad this way I would really like to see some pic's. That would be really sweeeet!

    What Cpu waterblock do you use?

    Using AquaXtreme IceFloe with 1/2" all the way around. Very happy with this block, performs excellent. This block is bascally the same as the whitewater block, with two barbs instead of three. Very nice for the price.

    Cutting the hole for the rad was real interesting. I used an air tool with a cutting disk. Cuts through the sheet metal like butta, but man do you have to be careful. One slip and you could ruin the case. I eventually used the cutting wheel for the big cuts, and some tin snips to finish it off. The "T" line was interesting as there was not room with my current pump configuration, to eliminate the 90 degree bend. I have another configuration I want to try, to eliminate this and clean up some of the hose routing. I will do this when I go SLI in a few weeks. Hopefully it works out.

    WC TT Armor Jr. with mods

    I have been really pleased with my WC setup. Currently cooling the CPU and (1) GPU my temps hover around 40C-41C under full load. I have one core that runs hotter by about 4C, on my dual core opteron. Unfortuntately this chip maxes out at about 2.87Mhz with core0 failing, but temps have not really been a problem. It will be interesting to see what happens when I add a second GPU in a few weeks, but I think it should be OK. The wheels are just standard rolling coasters you could probably find at any good hardware store. I cleaned, primed, and painted them black to match the case, and then installed them with pop rivits and sheet metal screws. They work just fine, and I can roll my case from under my desk when I need to work on it. It was a bit of work to get everything to fit, and make sure their was enough clearance for the rad but I found if I took my time everything worked out. I would still like to see if its possible to mount a rad in the top of a Armor Jr. but thats another project for another day. I havin too much fun with my new rig :shake:

    I'll try a post some pics for you, but the problem with the Karajan module is that it interferes with the exhast fan. You will have to cut a big notch out of the side of the fan with a dremel, or hack saw, so that the fan will fit. The other option would be to use a smaller fan, or a PCI audio card. My dremel works real nice, and I like cutting :nod: so I just modded the fan.

    LithoTech, nice to see some other fans of this case. Its not exactly hardcore but if you are into mid towers, slightly more compact, Armor Jr. offers quite a lot at a resonable price <$100. I saw you post/pics a few days ago but just no time to properly respond as I have been away on a bus trip (yuck). No time to work on my puter, play games or anything, how boring. Back home tomorrow so I can get back to normal. Missed 2 days of the forum as well:( Mounting the hard drive in the side bay you will need a 5.25" to 3.25" drive bay adapter. A number of manufacturers make them. The one I had was easily modded with the addition of some slide on rails. The drive bay adapter I had also had to be slightly modded to allow the drive to be mounted so it was visible, by cutting off a metal edge at the back of the bay that interfered with the drive. You may not need to do this. Try the following links which will help you find one, where you buy your parts. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16841101025 http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/Sea...11119&CatId=965 You know I was so intent on getting my WC and everything else on this sorted, I completely missed this. I must be loosing it :confused: When I get a chance I'll update the post to show this. Its obvious that is what I should have done. Nice find, Cheers! Hey no worries, maybe this will become the unofficial Armor Jr. thread LOL. BTW thanks for the kudos its always nice to know that you helped someone with their rig Thats going to be some xmas gift!

    Question about memtest for windows

    memtest for windows is for testing the memory, right! So if you have errors in memtest, its a pretty good bet you have some work to do on your memory timings. Any memory errors will also show up as faults in SP2004, but until you fix the source of the memory errors, you cannot know if the CPU is causing SP2004 to fail.

    Guys, I added a few URL to the first post in this thread where you might be able to pick one of these up. They seem to be hard to find, so if you PM me or post a linky, I'll add it to the list:) Cheers!
