Been posted in the computer pics, but I might as post it in here as well for a focus on the water portion.





and then the internal view



Gonna have to figure something out, since as soon as they are available I am replacing my ultra with 1 or possibly 2 4870's, anyone know if the 3870 blocks fit?

I used the Feser one UV Black / Blue in my build as well. After filling the system I read that it does not change under UV. I contacted Feser, the rep there told me that people have to use very powerful UV lamp to get it to change. However, I was supprised to see it change blue from dark black when I installed the cathodes.

I'm going to get two UV leds to put in to the the resevoirs, as the liquid is more concentrated here, hopefully it will change to blue. At the moment I only have a blue led fitted

Duckshot,

What is the thing sticking out the front of your case? The one with fins on it?

HD cooler Scythe Himuro, I'm planning on taking it out, and going external. Bad planning on my part.

Which case is this? Did the LCD come with it? Nice job on the cable management with an acrylic case - that can be painful.

It's the KXNG, I had to make some modifications to it for the radiator on the side, and the pumps in the front.

The LCD is from Alpha Cool, pretty good, quite old now so you can get hold of one quite cheaply.

I had to hide most of the cables down the side of the PSU, notice I did not have a photo from the other side, lol, it's messy.
