Well heres a simple loop installed with the help of forum members- posts, and guides. First time for me!! This is based on the "Vortex solution" (see threads for components). Was not too bad setting it up, need to do some extra cable management middle right..Temperatures are 10oc down on the TRU-X at high oc's i.e. 3.8 with 1.42 vcore (~48oc in Orthos). The combination of powerful pump and NF P12 fans gives it a nice kick....plus the 7/16th tubing on half inch barbs gives a safe and snug seal after immersion in hot water.
BTW Do not use the apogee GT block+packaged mount screws with a TRU-X backplate---also it takes a lot of effort to get the air out when the "res" is level with the block, had to unmount the radiator/res turn the case onto its side and hold the res/radiator above it to get the final air pockets out...all the time while pumping.
