Ah, lol- thanks. Suddenly I feel as if a wieght has been lifted off my shoulders.

I never did get into that stuff, and never played that game- probably why I didn't recognize it.

Back on topic- I've noticed that many of the water blocks at Frozen CPU have three outlets/inlets/whatever you call 'em. Like this one:

Don't you just need an inlet for the water to be fed to the block, and an outlet for the water to be carried away from the block? Why is there three?

Dont buy the DD RBX. For a quad core, get Apogee GTX Dtek Fuzion, or Aquaextreme MC-05 pro.

Right. They are called 'barbs' or 'fittings' and they must match the threadding of the block itself. You must have the same tubing ID throughout your loop, and each barb must match the threadding of each item in your loop. (threadding for each block/res/rad differs)

Thanks- but why are there three "barbs" on most blocks? Don't you just need two? If so what is the third one for? Extra? For whatever reason?

Okay, also- what do you think of this waterblock:

http://www.thermaltake.com/product/L...3/cl-w0043.asp

Notice that is JUST a water-block, not an "all-in-one" solution. According to their site I should be able to hook it up to any pump and radiator. Would that be overkill? Unnecessary?

most blocks actually have 2 barbs. go to www.petrastechshop.com and get all of your stuff there.

er. the other fitting on some of them you are supposed to block with a flow stopper. I think it just gives you more options in configuring the tubing

looks cheap and shoddy to me. how much are you looking to spend? it really all boils down to price limit.

Another Xenogears fan in the house. That game was so badass.

Okay, back on topic. I wish I had felt "l33tn3ss" the first time I hit the power switch on my 1st watercooled build. The only thing I felt was scared sh!tless. I kept imagining a geyser going off inside my case.

When it comes to watercooling, there are 3 rules to live by:

1) Plan on overclocking like a mutha#*@(!()!!
2) Invest in plenty of towels (kidding)
3) Never, ever, EVER buy Thermaltake anything (unless you want to take #2 seriously)


The blocks you want to look at are the Swiftech Apogee GT, D-tek Fuzion, or that one block Ben's mentioned before (MP-05)? I'd advise the Storm, but it's not as good for quad-cores. Thermaltake waterblocks are known to crack left and right. They're crap--just like most of their watercooling supplies are.

Ohhhh I haven't forgotten that. But he has it a little easier than you and I did. We both went extreme w/ custom parts and had to learn about barb sizes/thread sizes, corrosive properties of metals, anti-corrosive coolants, biocides, pump strength/flow restriction, tubing size, etc etc .. and a kit makes all that decision-making and assembly a lot easier. Not research-free, but easier.

I gave him the links. He knows what he needs to do now.

F*ck yeah dude! My only complaint in that game is how much of a pussy Fei is. (and this applies to all j-anime/manga Mech heroes i.e. gundam, n.g.e., zone of enders, etc..)

I mean, if you have a huge ass kicking robot (especially one as bad ass as Weltall: ) that responds to your mental waves, how could you not want to kick some ass with it?



anyways...

I tried to do a bit of research on the triple barbed blocks, but found nuthin. My first thought is that it allows flow to go to two different components, but then where would the other inlet on the Res be?

Ben, have you seen this guy's rig over on XS? I really love the way he did this:





Check out that 480 he has in the bottom and the dual-pumps in the drive bay.

My next rig will most definitely be dual-loops.

*LOL* Every lead character in those is a *****. Fei, Cloud, Squall, Claude (Star Ocean 2), etc.

What about Id, tho.. he was cool. Id kicked ass. So I guess Fei wasn't a total loser.

Yeah ID kicked ass. Especially in Weltall-ID.

have you plyed the Saga for PS2? There is a battle in XS3 in which you fight a gear VERY similar to Weltall ID, called Omega Universitas ID. (but its not sposed to be the same cuz they cancelled the series; they dont connect)

and... dont even get me started with squall. cloud was aight, claude - he was better than ratix and a godly mile ahead of fayt. GOD i hated SO3 so much its not even funny. (with the exception of the battle system)
just read the list of names from SO3 and you will crap yourself.
