    Not a radiator, but a heater core. From a Chevette, for example.

    [IMG]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Ben!/Desktop/screenshot.bmp[/IMG] How do I post an image from my comp?
    I herd a guy who had it at <35C w/ stock cooler. This is really odd, I had to move a fan directly over the CPU to keep mine from crashing, its blowing at <3000RPM and its loud and annoying!
    Thanks homies!
    P.S. do you buy 2 water coolers (1 for GPU and 1 for CPU) or 1 combo, which is better for budget?

    Nevermind the hi temps!!! I installed Asus Probe and the temp is actually 30c!
    I am so embarrassed my mobo is 27C.
    How do I overclock without changing the voltages, or are they supposed to go over the normal voltage?

    if you are doing watercooling, i imagine its cheaper and more effective to buy everything seperately. unless you see a good deal. if youve got plenty of tubing then you can go ahead and buy a gpu waterblock seperately.

    AMD athlon 64 3200 venice @ 2.4ghz
    Asrock Dual-939SATA2
    Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 chip r430 @ 480mhz core/540mhz mem with 1.6v vcore
    1gb Corsair XMS TwinX PC3200 timings 2-3-3-6 at 400mhz
    250gb Hitatchi deskstar T7K500 SATAII disk
    160gb samsung spinpoint PATA disk
    Asus 1608P2 DVD+/-RW Dual Layer
    Unbranded 500W PSU single 17A rail
    Innovatek and Asetek Watercooling (triple fan radiator)

    I will buy the tubing with teh rest of teh stuff, I have none now.
    I overclocked a little and my CPU is at 31C idle, whats a good way of knowing when to stop ocing?

    the best way to know when to stop overclocking is when it starts to crash. you then run it at these settings all the time

    really though, make sure the temps are good (under 50deg is my rule) and test it with prime95 and occt. if it passes occt and runs prime95 for a few hours, then its fine.
    oh, and i wouldnt go crazy on the voltage.

    Well, I overclocked to 2.10 ghz and it froze at random times, from in the BIOS
    to just after logging in. The stock cooler might not be the best but I would expect it to keep it cool. ohh well.
    Mobo...............Asus P5N-SLI (NF570)
    RAM................2 GB Kingston DDR2/667 CL5
    GPU................Evga e-GeForce 7900GTO 512MB
    CPU................Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 2MB L2
    HDD................Hitachi 160 GB IDE
    Disk Drive.........Sony DVD+-RW 16x IDE
    PSU................BFG 650W (on sale for 80$, 80$off!!)
    OS..................Windows XP Home SP2
    Sound card......Sound Blaster x-FI xtreme music
    Overclocked somewhat w/Arctic cooler freezer 7 pro
    other info: saitek eclipse red backlit keyboard
    cheap micro innovations wireless optical mouse
    logitech x-530 speakers (5.1)
    18" viewable KDS CRT monitor (I'll upgrade when it dies)
    about 8 80MM fans and I sleeved most of the cables
    It would be quiet but I have 1 noisy Vantek that blows like a turbine. A crappy generic case which with cammo paint and holes all over.
