I've looked through BigJimmy's tutorial and haven't noticed any major issues with tube routing. However, I'm concerned about the size of the CPU and GPU chips. I'd rather not have custom water blocks made, so I'm hoping I'll be able to use normal CPU blocks. (i.e. blocks from swiftech, danger den, etc.)
My questions are:
- What are the dimensions for each chip?
- What are the diagonal distances between the mounting holes for each chip?
- With the heatsink/fan block removed, will the PS3 still function? i.e. is there an RPM monitor that will shut down the PS3 if no activity is detected?
- With the heatsink/fan block removed are there supports to keep the rest of the innards elevated to the same height?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm especially curious to hear if anyone else has investigated this previously.
