Pleasure helping you guys ;)

I bought stainless allen-cap screws at Action Bolt & Nut in Springfieldpark Durban. You should get it from similar stores in Jozie/elsewhere. All Bolts & Nuts comes to mind......

Mmm...I am close to 39, so I could buy the beer...hehe

edit: Ok, I am off to bed now. Will see you tomorrow eve.

I see the res also has 3 holes! Thus I must get another Y-splitter, right? And how does this whole setup come to gether starting from the Pump? Where does it go from the pump and so forth! Thanks!

well to colour the water you could use food coloring - but that could start stuffing up the pump if it doesnt mix properly - so most of the time what the guys do is just buy antifreeze of the colour that they want and thats how the water looks coloured

there are also some of those UV reactive additives - but UV in your case isnt a great idea so i wouldnt use those - but if it floats your boat and you replace your ide cables regularly then by all means thats another option

personally id just use the antifreeze option - 10% of the liquid circulating should be antifreeze

shell makes blue - holts is green - and VW origional coolant is red .............. take your pic - im gonna use red cos my case is called "red hot chilli pepper"

@wki1d:

Like this: Pump -> Res -> Rad -> CPU Block -> GPU Block -> Back to pump

or

Like this: Res -> Pump -> Rad -> CPU Block -> GPU Block -> Back to pump

Make sure the rad is the LAST thing the water goes through before it gets to the blocks

be smart, replace the water with cooking oil, oil cooling is much better than water cooling, you'll need a strong pump though

:? Yeah, or maybe you could try engine oil, or how about some toothpaste or shaving cream? :wink: Cooking oil? Maybe i'm wrong, but that sounds insane. Just stick to 90% water and 10% anti-freeze.

@wikid: Anti freeze comes in many colours, just go to a petrol station and ask for it. I know that bp has blue.

This is bs, soz mate.

Very few, if anything, have the latent heat absorption capacity of water. Not alcohol, not oil, only water ;)

Go on, try it out yourself and see.

Your cheapest option would be Fedex Economy. Unless you have a friend in the US, who can send it via Air Parcel Post.

Otherwise you have to pay for the shipping. It is not always cheap if you want quality components.

Tubing only. Quite a while back.

Your shipping depends on quanties, and total weight of components ordered. You are taking quite a few things, so the shipping is fair.

I paid arounf US $75- for 2 Maze4 blocks, 1 DD5 pump, and something else I can't remember.
