    Thanks a lot for those piccs. Looks like you really are a Doc. Just hope it stays cooler than the boiler of your steam engine!

    In terms of quantity, how does the RS stuff do? Is it enough for two drives or just one ?

    I'll prolly spend some cash soon and quiten my pc with watercooling. Where did you get your soundproofing alu stuff from? Seems like a neat alternative to all the foamy / mat stuff you normally get from modder retail outlets...

    Keep up the good work

    the epoxy stuff does exactly wot it says on the tin.
    the only thing about it which is not ideal is it set very solid! so once applied there is no going back, the waterblocks could probly be levered off the bottom of the drives but there is a large damger of breaking the pcb on the bottom.

    if ur thinking of watercooling harddrives the koolance encapsulate is ideal, its just a shame its not readily avaliable in the uk (unless a new waterblock is bought!)

    the waterblocks do cool the sides of the harddrives supprsingly well, others have mentioned that cooling the sides is the most important bit and their are right but the koolance blocks do make good contact to the bottom of the sides so the harddrives stay cool.
    personally i wouldnt bother cooling your harddrives unless u intend to encase them in insulation too. My comp is watercooled for silent running with performance as a welcome addition.

    The foil covered foam is also from www.rswww.com,

    Sound, absorption, polyurethane foam, aluminised film faced, self adhesive backed .... £13 each sheet 1000 x 600 x 25mm

    its intended to sound proof industrial machinery, much cheaper than specific computer sound absorbsion kits and much more versatile!

    Roads?? Where we're goin we don't need roads!!

    Aha, I wondered about that foam. Looked like the Industrial Stuff I also thought it would be cheaper than the premium price you pay for "PC" sound absorption foam. I'll take a look at that stuff. I'll search around a bit on the rs website and see what I find.

    Edit: Is 370-5809 the stuff you got ?

    It sounds like you think the coolance encapsulate stays more rubbery than the rs stuff making it possible to take it off if ever you want to.

    I'm back in the UK now so I'll prolly spend some time soon changing my lill' rig.
