  1. It showed up (Replaced the cheap Amazon Special, Made in China desk fan that failed on me with one that's more than 100 years old):
  2. Congrats, E--glad you were able to take care of that relatively quickly.
  3. A proper antique made in 'merica worthy of my menagerie "collage" to replace the failed made in china cheap junk i bought less than two years ago. Just need to oil it once a year (no sealed bearings or bushings here; it has an oil wick). It's also almost as old as i am @The Pook: What it's replacing:
  4. flow dropped to about .8gpm with the reconfigured loop. we'll see if I can't bump that up once leak testing is done. pumps -> kpe hydrocopper block + backplate block -> rad1 -> cpu -> rad2 -> flowmeter -> res, through a gazillion convolutions. more eye candy while the leak test runs its course:
  5. if i told you, they'd have you vaporized. i like you too much to allow that to happen*. *note: in a platonic sort of way.
  6. they're not, it's a ruse. if you look closely, they don't stock the stuff.
  7. It's actually been fluctuating on Amazon since before COVID, at least the MG version has. I paid: $17.79 for a quart on June 12, 2017 $12.87 on June 11, 2018 $12.86 on February 19, 2019 $20.03 on July 15, 2020 $16.84 on May 14, 2021 $18.53 for the most recent order on August 30, 2021. Currently, you can order a quart sized six pack via Amazon, which reduces the price per to $10.29 each. It can be had for less elsewhere these days, but not much less if you factor in shipping to the total cost: I suspect the days of yours pricewise are gone forever though, at least at the spec'd qty. (Welcome to the new world order...)
  8. So I've been busy troubleshooting a flow problem that drove me up the wall for an hour or two. Everytime I'd start up the pumps, flow would peak at about 1gpm, then drop to a fraction of that, regardless of which flow meter i had hooked up. Turns out the bitspower inline filters i had left in the loop were clogging up the works. Took them out, and flow bypassing the rads was about 2.1gpm, which dropped to 1.8gpm when i added the rads in series into the equation: You can see the inline filter in that third pic. Mind you, that was running two Watercool pwm d5s in series without running a pwm signal to them. Didn't bother connecting the pwm lines to 5VDC (could be they were running at 60%, but I'd have to verify that to be sure). I'll split the rads apart now that i know flow is working properly and run the loop gpu block and rear block -> rad -> cpu -> rad. Once i power up the motherboard, i'll be able to verify if more can be squeezed out of the pump setup.
  9. now you're actually acting awfully orange. :::: woof, woof!!! :::: anyway, showed up today because i got tired of dustoff that works like shyte (my new anti-satanic (sp) blower, among a few other things):
