Been up and running for about half a year now so I should be good. Also I use metal hose clamps on the tubes rather than the cheap plastic ones they normally sell at watercooling sites.

DD-WRT: Check
Boosted: Nope, didn't have time to do it the day I worked on it and the guy I did it for said he didn't really care about boosting it, he just wanted it to run cooler.

Nice setup! Though I have always been weary of liquid cooling because of possible leaks.

Now this type of cooling is expensive...

You didn't have 3 extra minutes? LOL.

Mines got the cooling fan on it BECAUSE it'* boosted. Just so everybody knows. Normal power output from a stock router is 28mW and my router is pushing 251mW. In my military career field we have certain LOS radio sets that only push 300mW.

I hooked the pump up to its own power supply and ran just the pump with the rest of the PC unplugged to leak test for about 2 hours. Not a drop of water was in the case at the end of the two hours so I called it safe to start up the entire system.

Had to leave for work and was already cutting it close. I personally wanted to see the difference but he doesn't seem to care. Too bad my Trendnet router doesn't support DDWRT.

Trust me, the boost in power is awesome. When I was in tech school for my military job, we had 6 of these routers with high gain antennas. Had them set-up in a link style network so the two buildings we were living in had a full scale wireless network. Brick buildings, filled with cinder blocks and re-bar. Not friendly for RF signals. Anyway, we had all of them boosted to 251mW. We could go about 3 blocks or so down the street and have about half signal.
