So I am in the middle of my week long timing belt change project, I was convinced that I would be done today and up and running when this happened: :facepalm:



I ripped the gasket when trying to get the water pump back into its place. It is a really tight fit. Since no one stocks them I can't get a new one until saturday...

Good thing the local liquer store had my favorite beer....



Looks like I will be doing a lot of gaming until this weekend. Good thing I decided to tackle this during my break.

Nice rig liquid cooling and everything! Rig is looking good. I skimped on the case and went with Antec 902 so I dont really have room for liquid cooling. How do you like the Coolermaster Haf?
Btw.... have you ever heard of http://www.million-dollar-pc.com/?
They have some really nice rigs there.

I'd have gasgacinch'd that up and kept going. At least the delay isn't too bad.

To be completely honest, I have a OCz vertex 1 before the Vertex... and I really dont even see a difference. The only thing that is great about it, is the size.
