    i got side tracked and didnt innish this right away...

    so i put together a computer for $600 and then added better stuff and now its nice, it hasd a 2.8ghz prescott running at 3.6. the idle temp of the cpu is betwen 72 and 80 degrees F. and under load (prime95 + other stuff at the same time) i havnt seen it go over 100degrees. so im going to overclock it a litte more after i get better ram.

    i think those results are better than what the water cooling systems on the market can do. i spent about an hour total on a milling machine and soldering brass and copper tubing and fittings. im using a compressor from a water cooler to cool the water that is going through the computer

    im charging batteries for my digital camera (the crappy, only one i have left) now so ill put some pics in here later tonight if anyone wants to see it

    Man, people are getting crazy with computers. Now it even needs mechanical ways to cool it down. I wonder what's next..... build a fridge around it?

    You will be lucky to see it last three months, overclocked that much, even with good cooling.
