    Very nice...
    I was thinking what in the world would you do with that....but then I thought....what in the world couldn't you do with that.

    Always been a big fan of Xeons. I've had several servers with those and they never let me down.

      Yeah, I setup Mac OS X to see if I could, but I'm liking it.

      I can't change the resolutions from 1024x768, and I have a 21" monitor. oh well.

      the dual processors help out a lot in the video work I do. HD editing in adobe premiere actually requires dual CPUs at 3ghz or better.

        Fixed the resolution now, too. I can set it to pretty much whatever, only crappy thing is I have to reboot.

                  Nice setup!

                  Did you think about maybe splitting the water into each cpu block instead of chaining them together like that? I bet that one CPU gets a good deal hotter than the other the way you have them now.

                        Nope, less than a degree of difference, and in parallel means lower flow velocity.

                        it has to do with the specific heat of water.
