You need to splice your fan cables and sleeve them.

The project has several sponsors which has kept my costs low. I only had to buy the fittings, tubes, sleeving, fans, rads, and coolant - the rest was part of sponsorship deals.

The watercooling loop is regulated, controlled and automated by a secondary computer system that monitors the temps over a firewalled network. This secondary system is also watercooled and exists in the form of a Pico-ITX unit w/ 120GB HDD and 1GB RAM and it lives in a 5.25" dive bay. The cooling statistics are displayed on the front mounted 7" touch screen and also on the Aquaero display. This system also controls the ligting system that consists of 100white LEDs, and 12 RGB BlinkM LEDs that change colour based on coolant temps. This unit is also the worlds first watercooled Via C7 processor, and the first watercooled Pico-ITX platform.


That said... the 'value' of the loop is listed below:
Primary System:
2x AquaComputer AquaStream Ultra XT pumps - 169.99 USD ea = 432.536 CAD
AquaComputer Aquaero USB White display/controller - 99.90 EUR = 161.581 CAD
AquaComputer G1/4 flow sensor - 24.89EUR = 40.306 CAD
AquaComputer Multiswitch USB switching controller - 79.90 EUR = 129.394 CAD
Custom PrometheusCU edition MIPs Computer nickel mainboard set - 159.90 EUR = 258.568 CAD**
2x Custom PrometheusCU edition AquaComputer GTX280 waterblocks - 89.90 EUR ea = 290.60CAD**
Custom PrometheusCU edition Watercool Heatkiller rev3.0 #001 - 69.95 EUR = 104.956 CAD**
Mips RAM FREEZER 4 Dominator edition #001 - 149.90 EUR = 242.530 CAD***
10x Aquacomputer G1/4 Swivel elbows - 3.99 EUR ea = 64.489 CAD
14x Bitspower G1/4 1/2" High flow dark nickel hose barbs - 3.49 USD ea = 62.154 CAD
8x Bitspower G1/4 3/8" High flow dark nickel hose barbs - 3.49 USD ea = 35.512 CAD
1x Bitspower G1/4" Rotary "Q" - 13.50 USD = 17.173 CAD
1x Bitspower G1/4" Rotary "T" - 12.99 USD = 16.525 CAD
4x Bitspower G1/4 stop fittings - 3.49 USD ea = 17.762 CAD
1x Bitspower male to male G1/4 fitting - 3.99 USD = 5.072 CAD
20' Primochill Primoflex Pro 1/2" ID black tubing - 2.25 USD ft = 57.203 CAD
20' Primochill Primoflex Pro 1/2" ID clear tubing - 2.25 USD ft = 57.203 CAD
20' Primochill Primoflex Pro 3/8" ID black tubing - 2.00 USD ft = 50.852 CAD
20' Primochill Primoflex Pro 3/8" ID clear tubing - 2.00 USD ft = 50.852 CAD
7x SCYTHE Ultra Kaze 120x38mm 133CFM fans - 12.95 USD ea = 115.208 CAD
Feser X-Changer 360mm Xtreme Performance Radiator - 139.95 USD = 177.888 CAD
Black IceŽ GT Stealth 120 Radiator - 44.95 USD = 57.141 CAD
SUB TOTAL = 2,445.119 CAD

Watercooling control system:
Artigo Pico-ITX builder kit - $378.00 CAD
OCZ PC2-5400 1GB DDR2-667 CL5-5-5-15 200PIN SODIMM Memory - $131.10 CAD
Western Digital 120GB 2.5IN IDE Notebook Hard Drive - $67.73 CAD
Cooler Master Aquagate Duo kit - 25.00 USD = 31.784 CAD
Magicool Extreme Slim Profile 40mm Radiator = 29.95 USD = 38.077 CAD
7" 1024x600 LCD display modded to touch panel - 169.84 USD = 215.923 CAD
SUB TOTAL = 862.614 CAD

TOTAL = 3307.773 CAD +TAX+Shipping+Duty/Brokerage fees

**This is the cost of stock coolers, where mine were made custom for this project
***Mips designed this product especially to be compatible with my Dominator RAM, and it now commercially available.

Because of the custom blocks I'm labeling it at Priceless.

...luckily I got sponsors... or I'd be in a world of hurt.
