In a past post i was having problems cooling my AMD 955 Phenom II with a custom water loop. I had came to the conclusion with the help of some of tom's members that it was the tight mesh that NZXT used in the case. Also the rad sat away from the mesh about an inch causing the hot air to recirculate in the case. So here are some pic's after i finished the mod to resolve these issues. By the way temps are GREAT!! :bounce: Thanks again to all who helped me in that post. ;)









Three more pic's lower in thread. :D

And Worse. My Technology school's desktop PCs are Crap when it comes to CPUs. A lot of Very old Pentium 4s. My A+ teacher has a hoard of Pentium 2's and 3s (If you ask him about Pentium 2s, he will tell you a long story about the slot processors). Even scarier, he keeps talking about ISA slots like it is a modern technology. Oh, and he doesn't seem to think PCIe exists.

Yeah, every student at our (Public!) High School is assigned laptops for a nominal fee (which can be waived depending on the financial situation of the student). Even so, they laptops are informally known as Craptops. The Freshmen and some Sophomores get D620s. The Other sophomores (Which annoyingly wasn't me), get D630s. The upperclassmen get the Latitudes. It is pretty nice, but damn- I can't do anything with the laptop. (And when I first got it, Windows Vista's Explorer process crashed- and I couldn't run Command Prompt)

I digress, but still- it's funny how our new technology and old technology mixes together at our School. It is also funny when you put a bunch of teenagers and advanced technology together. Once, my Cisco Networking Teacher freaked out because some student decided to change the MOTD to "3rd Period rules" on the lan server, then proceeded to flash the bios in the Router and scramble the password. Needless to say, she wasn't pleased.

I'll Pray that your dad is okay.
