These holes are lined with rubber to prevent any sharp edges from damaging the tubing.
It's Coming Together
Once the radiator is mounted, it is a simple matter of hooking up all the tubing.
The motherboard at the heart of this beast is Tyan's Thunder n6550EX. Here we see it with processors and water blocks already installed. The tubing for Puget's water-cooling system is being run.
The Monster, With More Hardware Installed
Another shot of water cooling hoses being run. In this picture, you can see the machine's power supply, a Corsair HX 1000W PSU, and its graphics card, an Asus GeForce 8800 GTS 640 MB. Clearly, this particular customer isn't gunning for maximum graphics muscle and instead needs as much compute power as possible.
A Puget employee cuts the hose to the right length.
Here's an image of the chassis side panel attached and an employee hooking up hoses from inside case. Note that this mod was done to the right panel, which never really needs to be removed. The enclosure remains easily servicable in case it becomes necessary to swap hardware.
Keeping It Clean
Angled barbs on the radiator facilitate a lower profile with the tubing.

Everything is attached and running inside the chassis, now.
Getting Evertything Up And Running
The liquid cooling is now all set in place, and its time to fill the system and test it out.
Filling The Reservoir
Puget says, "We're running a Koolance combined pump and reservoir unit in one of the CD-ROM bays. We are very happy with this unit, as we can tune the pump speed up and down based on the performance and noise levels we want."
