Everything laid out, gasket installed on Rad and Fan grill.

The gasket didnt quit fit on the fan grill with out a few modifications, the top, middle, and bottom portions of the gasket hung over the grill so snip, snip.

Grill, fans installed they are pulling because I will be adding 2x120mm TT led fans to push so the light will still be visible threw the front of my case. Zip tied the tails they are going to be run via a Coolermaster Cooldrive6 fan controller.

Another shot with the Barbs installed

The front gasket installed , the led fans are still attached to my case right now but @ least the gasket is on.
And yes thats my hand, you finally get to see it Bab's ( Inside Joke )

Quick shot of the Waterblock before it is taken apart to replace the O-ring.

Apogee GT ready to switch out the O-ring.

Apogee with the larger O-ring installed. I wanted to get more shots of this but it was a trying to get the bigger O-ring installed, when it finally did stay in the channel for longer than 2 seconds I rushed to get it put back together.
Miso you did say it was a pain to get it to stay and you were 100% right.

Thats about it for tonight, most of the work will be done this weekend. Friday strip the case, Saturday get it installed and leak test overnight, Sunday put it all back together and check temps.

On a side note, I usually use AS5 for all my TIM purposes but with water do I want to use AS5 or AC? Or does it matter?
