Cooler was pulled from a dead computer found in the trash (yes, I have no shame). The 2500+ it was on was also in working order!

Palomino 1700+ with L1 Bridge Mod
CPU Overclocked Clock Speed:
Kingston ValueRam PC3200
Besides connecting the L1 bridges with a conductive pen and upping the VCore, the overclock is pretty straight forward. The 1700+ Palomino won't clock much faster than 1.8 GHz. Additionally, the PCI and AGP busses are overclocked as well since my MB does not have a freq. lock for either; however, the system is stable and video is faster.
The case was made from three 10 ft. 1/2" copper pipes, 32 T connectors, 8 elbow connectors, and a butane torch (connectors had solder already applied which made connecting the beast much easier). All the cutting and grinding was performed with my cordless Dremel (if I only had a pipe cutter). The pic pretty much speaks for construction itself. The corners each have two horizontal bars for support and to act as handles. The hardest parts are making sure all the pipes for mounting the hardware were in the correct places since mounting on a 1/2" cylinder doesn't give you much leeway for errors. Additionally, a new top right mounting hole for the PSU had to be drilled so that the top left and right holes were both aligned rather than staggered as on most standard power supplies. When finally completed, the case is much lighter than one would expect and as strong as a tank.
LOVE the idea.PLEASE do send your dimensions....love to expand and replicate this CASE. Maybe in 3/4 ".Rather then using copper banding I would just frame and encase ALL snuggly in more tubing 1/2"..SURRONDING HD,DVD-RDROM,PSU and MoBo.
