KcVRYuc.jpgThere we go.

The 655 pump was in the front under the drive cages. pulled from the res, pumped up to the waterblock which emptied into the radiator windowside and then put the other side back to the res. It all dodged the X1900xt card nicely, which was loud as hell....the only thing that made noise here. I had the 2 disk raid in heat pipe drive coolers (cause really there was nowhere else to put them with the pump taking their space) up in the 5.25 drive bays with a fan flowing on them from the front. I cut the bottom out of the case for the radiator to sit in with a draw through red led fan system. 


I realize this is on the back of your time frame window, but period correct. I did post a pic of it on and running, reg glow everywhere when all other builds were blue leds, in this forum back in the day but it looks like that thread has been purged. My notes of the time showed something about my socket 939 opteron [email protected] daily. I think the temps maxed at 56?

I JUST combined all my old files into one drive and went through pictures. Umm, I might have erased quite a few images including some build photos. I'll see what I might be able to find, there's a lot. But what I did have was from probably 2005 when I went water cooled in a Cooler Master CM5 case using a pvc pipe resivoir on an AMD XPm thunderbird chip. got 2.6ghz on that. Had red LED fans as well. I then rebuilt it with the 939 opteron chip.


I'll look for it and post something.


Bought a 90 deg. 24pin adapter a while back. Workin great. Ill try to post a pic of that in play too. REALLY keeps things slim inside.

Oh, man if you caught me a month ago I would have fixed you up. I think. I'm not sure. I just put the old rig in another case and built a new one. Otherwise I would have parted it all out, chip to you, etc.


I'm in a quandary about it though. Cause I just scratched the back of the board my 965 is on while doing a heatsink change and now lost memory slots 2 and 4....however that happens. so i'm down to half a 16gig kit on what is destined to be the basement fitness/MAME computer. Should you be looking for a 16gig set or 770 card or something like that I can do a package deal. prices on everything are falling out of the sky this season. message me off topic with the needs.
