    Left one end off to fill res to let air drain out, then attached before turning on.

    Finished Product




    In the dark it looks amazing.

    I had a leak on one of the upgraded compression fittings on the rad. The o-rings given with bitspower really are to small in thinkness for a good seal. I took fatter ones of the supplied barbs and they worked perfect. I will change the other later on.

    Other then that, there was no leaks or problems. The Tygon 7/16 ID//// 5/8 OD tubing is great for bending, performance and looks. Came in one solid piece no problem. Also very easy to cut.

    I will get some night time shots up later. And I cleaned up my wiring better. Pain in the ass to hook up the fans I bought with the 4 pin connectors on my motherboard but I made it work. Cables could have been longer considering I was running it from outside the case. But for the average fan it is plenty.

    I must say the swift tech resivor is amazing. It takes out bubbles very well for you. Lines were good in minutes and virtually no bubbles after 20minutes. I recommend it to any else who is planning on building new.

    I will also get some screens up soon with my overclocks. CPU idles at 18 degrees running a Q6600 @ 2.4

    That is a godlike cooling system. Looks damn complicated. Wish I could have a set up like that but I'm to scared to get water near my computer. Water + Electronics don't seem to work for me, ask my old labtop which is toast from water!

    running 3.0 Ghz steady @ 1.36 vcore on a 1.325 VID chip. I was unlucky with my processor but its running great so far and I hit the low 20's idle mark now that the AS5 has settled in and it doesnt hit over 48 on load.

    I wanna do liquid cooling with my next rig, but is it worth it if you're not over clocking ?

    Its worth it, def works better than air, and its always a good cooling solution.

    Not according to HardOCP. The gains from water over a GOOD air cooler are around 1-2 degrees c at idle, 2-3 at full load. I've got my 920 i7 @ 3.8ghz STABLE on air. I would say that the biggest gain would be noise, but my Noctua isn't all that loud.

    Anything short of Phase Change systems and there isn't much gain. That is comparing apples to apples, of course. By that I mean quality Air vs. quality water systems.
