now how did my cat get in there :p 


the parts in the case :D 
( i havnt plugged in the PCI-e connecter to the GPU yet)

what it looks like on the back..


the res/pump in the case :) 


the CPU waterblock on the shiny new FX-8350 (no paste or water yet though, just planning the loop)

Thank you for the mention in OP!

someone here posted that getting the bay res into the drive bay was a stopped by the supports on the drive bays which would mean you may need to bend them flat or maybe angle grind them :lol:  as modo would put it :p 

* see if you can tweak the camera setting, nothing like a build log without pics man, so lets make your effort count :) 

move one ram to the black dimm and if you want get a slot protector for the green dimms otherwise they should go nicely with the theme of the case - maybe spray paint the GPU shell with army green or army sands?

edit: sorry, got the colors messed up , Google'd the board up, move dimms to the dark green slots, and have the sandy empty. Spray paint GPU shell in army sands.

i know i got the ram in the wrojnng slotsa, just that i was looking through the manual and it had A1,A2,B1,B2, so i assumed it went channel 1,1,2,2
ill fix it now. i might change the GPU colour, but q plan on replacing it some time, so i dont think ill do it now

Panzer - if you don't want your tube clouding instantly or in the very near future, might want to have the silver kill coil in your loop as far away from a power source as possible! Rubix conducted a test showing so.

Or if you have dead water, add two drops to the loop. The suggested dosage is 1 drop per liter but I added another in case. Also have a kill coil in my res but that's miles away from the pump at the bottom!

FYI - the tubing run can be reduced if you can get the rads port to face the front of the case instead of the back.

There's another misconception about leak testing and filling a loop. Have the parts connected to their respective sockets and ports and mount them firmly, not screw driver tight but finger tight, some additional tightening can be done with tubing on fitting and twisting in the direction of the lock. As what usually happens is the weight of the liquid and the movement of a block can unscrew a fitting ever so slightly to give a trickle effect. Down the road you can see the gpu or NB die(whichever comes first)

have only the 24 pin connector jumpered while the rest is unplugged from the core components and the mobo. Leave fans out of equation too. Modular connectors should also be as far away from the case as possible...or better yet, not have them connected at all until cable management can begin.

*You wash a car and then take it for a drive, not wash the car while driving it unless your driving in teh rain :p
