Pics of my current set-up (see sig).

Basically its 2 loops crammed into an older case, the rads have been hooked to the back.

The black tubing supplies the cold water from the two rads to the 2 pumps. The res is in the drive bay area.

Its organized so that I can easily remove both the cards or cpu block for servicing or remove the MB. Need to get rid of the fan controller at the back to neaten it up.

Case doesn't have decent options for feeding the cables round the back unfortunately. Would love to get that new Mountain Mods tower!

Parallel WC of EK Blocks was copied from Vinister and Vortex (works great!), the idea for a side mount of the RAD was first posted by Franky
