Prime stable 12 hours and Intel Burn Test stable as well. Updated with list of hardware and specs. Just upgraded to the blue and new blocks a few months ago. I will post pics of when it had black cooling here in a little. Going to be upgrading case and water cooling again as I can't seem to kick this computer bug I have.

Yup, I know what you mean

Best thing I ever did was to watercool my 4870x2 - So quiet.

But you'll need a separate pump and rad for that - secondary loop.

I need to get my cards wc as well but will probably wait until my next build. Here are some pics of when it was black fluid and Viper John SPP block as well as 9800 GTX's.






I kept the ViperJohn Mosfets but kicked his SPP to the curb for an EK block. I also kicked the Danger Den CPU block to the curb for the D-Tek v2.

Feser. Primochill sucks on bend radius. The Tygon wouldn't do it without springs. The Feser had no problem doing it. Wish they would come with some 7/16".

I've been using my own mixture for 2 years and never had a problem, it's just not a pretty blue:)
