Project: 101A

Well most of you saw my Project Watew form. Now it's time for my first high end air build. Seems like me & are on the same train of thought atm. Yearning for silence, sophistication, and some overclockin'.

So to start off the thread with a bang, you'll be happy to know everything has been ordered. No waiting FTW!

Code:
Cooling
CPU -> Thermaltake Big Typhoon - HAVE (Plan to lap!) GPU -> Arctic Cooling Accelero X2 - ORDERED (Might lap!?) Northbridge -> Zalman ZMNB32K w/Evercool Fan 40mm - ORDERED (Lap? :p) -2x Yate Loon D12SL-12 Black (Front + Rear Case) - ORDERED Computer Specs -Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (Lapped, L629A) - HAVE -ASUS P5B Deluxe WiFi/AP (BIOS 0610) - HAVE -G.Skill F2-5400CL3D-2GBGA (Micron D9) - HAVE -BBA ATi X1900GT Rev. 1 - HAVE -Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200.10 - HAVE -Lite On 16x SATA DVD+RW SH-16A7S-05 - HAVE -Lian Li PC-101A - ORDERED -Enermax Liberty 500w Modular - HAVE

I plan to just take off the whole north bridge / mosfet assembly and keep it around in case I need an RMA. The TT Big Typhoon will cool the mosfets enough. I also heard of a trick where you can heat the NB sink with a hair blow dryer, and remove the heatpipe without damaging anything.. so in case of needing an RMA you can slide it back in. If this is the case, I'll be replacing the stock SB sink with the stock NB sink for some beastly azz cooling.

Stay tuned for more updates as stuff starts arriving!

Nick

Yeah but this ones nice! Your old one had that ugly strip down the middle!

Why TTBT? Blows down on board, is fairly quiet, cheap, good mounting & proven.

Lapped my TTBT! 2000 Grit, just like my CPU. Applied an extremely (transparent) thin layer of Ceramique to both and mounted up.

Good temps thus far.
