My System Specs


Acrylic anything in a loop can be a pain. I learned from my first loop (TT Bigwater) that I didn't want any acrylic after going through two different acrylic top CPU heatsinks (lost a 1950pro to that).

It doesn't take much to overtorque the threads, and any hairline cracks which form are hard to see and can take months to get bad enough to start leaking.
