OK so there are fucking gremlins in my house ATM running through both rigs at the same time. OK so I was doing fresh install on the main WC rig and so I had both computers set up in my living room when the kids were asleep. The Water cooled rig... well in short even with a hose clamp it came off while it was running and of course the hose pointed at a fan and pissed blue fluid all over. OK a setback shirley, but wait if you call withing the next 10 min...
Literally 10 min later, just as I finish cleaning up the mess in my living room. the HTPC rig Ive been using for now started acting odd. It restarted out of nowhere and I was getting multiple Blue screens I figured a fluke or power surge or something. I was trying to burn a copy of Windows 7 beta. I kept getting error message during the install
"Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241"
I cant find any info really on it and Im too tired and frustrated to go looking now ARGH!! So I had to install vista 32(the only disk I had close by) to even get here to bitch. so here goes SONS OF BITCHES M)THER F*CK3RS! Ahh i feel better.
I did notice my rig seems really hot, not warm, but hot. The PSU is really warm (here is where I get yelled at) I had never gotten around to ordering another Corsair for the HTPC rig instead I used an old Rosewill 500 I had laying around I know I know. But the Ram seems warm as well and the NB is screaming hot!! I mean burn your finger hot. I plugged in a 80mm fan and have it leaning on it to cool it down for now.
Oh we're not done yet ladies and germs. I am feeling around for the hotspots and I have a scyth mini ninja cooler that I tried to feel behind and two of the crappy plastic pins popped out SON OF A BITCH. I litterally have the CPU cooler resting on the CPU ATM with only 2 pins pushed in. Im stunned to see that Speedfan shows the CPU temp between 38-43. Go mini Ninja
So looks like I'm going to have to do some unplanned shopping soon. On a budget since it's just aftre Xmas and Im outta work for about another 3 weeks I still don't know if anything is damaged from the water cooling accident but hopefully I can put some pieces together and get at least one decent rig working by tomorrow. I cant leave this one on too long for fear the temp will spike and ruin something here as well or catch fire and kill me in my sleep.
Another thing I just noticed is the CPU fan wasn't working anymore none of the fan headers are. hmmm maybe my board is partially fried?? What do you guys think???
