My System Specs

Default Stage 2.5 [completing the loop with motherboard block and GPU]

The last picture above shows the EK waterblock attached to the mobo..

However the computer refused to post any time it was in place....
Some creative troubleshooting showed the block was shorting some connections, so try again....

And it works !

This pic shows the GPU: GTX 570 on another EK block.
All the fittings were custom built since nobody around here seemed to have the right ones....

FYI: I'll be removing the steel and brass soldered fittings ASAP to prevent the risk of GALVANIC CORROSION.....( Big green monster )

Temps are also a bit high for my taste now with everything at full blast due to all the heat off the motherboard PWM to run an OC of 4.2 stable. (3.2GHz stock)

With the fittings and an extra Rad on order, it's time to wait and see how this project will look ;-)

Stay Tuned.....
