    Well, poor Sprocket has been reborn into her new ( for her at least) smaller case and in the process has been rechristened Sprockette.

    It's amazing how so much work can go into a project like this and yet visually things look just about the same.

    I still have some detail/finish work to do, but I want to confirm my fan layout before I finalize the wiring harness and I still have a few accessories I want to incorporate.

    With any luck though, the major modding is done and all the rest will not require a major stripdown.
    If it does, things will get a lot easier however, as I drilled out many of the riveted assemblies and they are now held by screws, so servicing this beast is a lot simpler.

    So far the cooling performance is exceptional...but I've said that before so the final verdict will have to wait. I still have some final tinkering to do with my fan placement/orientation and voltage (5v or7v?...hmmm?), but at least the majority of the hard, dirty work should be over.

    Right.

    When I go to your "Pictures in clocker2's "Sprockette" Album" I can see all the thumbnails but the larger pictures don't work when I click to zoom.

    but from what i can see i looks stunning

    That looks amazing! Very nice indeed
    What kind of temps are you hoping to get with that??

    I don't understand.
    I just went there and clicked on the thumbnails and they zoomed just fine.

    Poop.
    I spent a bunch of time writing the captions for them too....

    Thank you.

    The actual temps aren't as important to me as trying to keep the temp steady.
    Obviously, the lower the better, but all my previous setups have been extremely sensitive to room ambient.
    As soon as my furnace would kick on, the temps would creep up.

    That said, I would love to see my temps max out at 33-35C whilst Folding.
    So far, over the past few hours, she's been holding steady at 29C, but the heat hasn't come on for the evening yet so we'll have to wait and see.

    She is very quiet though, so I could probably kick up the rpm on my radiator fans if I had to...maybe it's time to make a fan control panel.

    what made you decide to return to watercooling clocker? and what is that video card you are cooling, didnt you say that you had to use some old pci piece card?
    oh and what did you put on your power supply cables to make them round and not "frincged" with all of those wires ? is it just black electrical tape or something? im thinking of putting on electrical tape to make it look neater and not have to buy anything, what do you think?

    I decided to retry the H2O because it seems to be less sensitive to changes in room ambient temp. There is a heat register right above my case and when the furnace kicked on I used to see my chip temp rise immediately.
    With the water rig this doesn't seem to happen as dramatically.

    My pals down at the comp shop loaned me a nVidia MX440 SE till I can get the bucks for a real card. I mounted the heatpipe on it cause the little fan was driving me crazy. When I return the card I'll just give them the heatpipe as rent. Those guys love nVidia cards and I can see their point...I just put it in and it worked right off the bat, no drivers, no set up, no nuthin...
    It probably benches poorly, but it's a world better than the PCI POS.

    I am just using a few zip-ties on my PSU cables.
    The wires aren't very visible and they stay nice and flexible if they are unwrapped.
    The wiring is definitely the biggest pain of the whole project.
    If you decide to wrap yours with electrical tape try to do as much as possible with the wires in the postion that they will end up. That way they should be bent the way they need to go. If you are lucky you can find some light guage tape...not so bulky as the typical stuff...that also helps.
