Well, here's the new setup.
Testing, and the leaking happened. As you would would expect, I forgot some o-rings:


And here's the final result (need a new camera BADLY. Canon Powershot A520, pretty old):



Oh, and a custom painted radiator. (Thanks Paul88. MCR220 I believe):


Let me know how I did for my first attempt. Watercooling was definitely a challenge for me, as I've never done anything like this before, but now I'm at 38-40C with load, about 8C cooler on a Q9400@3.36GHz. Sure as hell makes it look nicer. Just need some UV cathodes...Damn my $10 gift card from NCIX isn't coming fast enough.

Looks great Ipan!, Nice internal build, really like the black tubing too. Once you go this route there is no looking back

Thanks guys. Was a hard thing for sure, just like building my first computer. I think if I have to do it again it's going to be a hell of a lot easier.
I'm going to start overclocking again, but I have a feeling I've hit a point when I'm going to need crazy voltages to get any higher. This 8x multiplier is crap
Then again, I'm only at 1.275V right now. Ah well, I'll see if I want to push 1.35-4V on this thing, then I'll be able to get somewhere higher

Well Ipfan...congrats, looks like a sturdy loop. But that's ALL I'm gonna congratulate you on!

But wtf is up with the color scheme? You got green coolant with black tubes and pink tube coils, as well as the already messed up pot-pouri of colors from the Gigabyte board... it looks like puke!

But seriously, it's one thing if you have a 3-color loop, but it's a whole different story when you got a Gigabyte board =D

Well, the green is only because of the Hydrx. I wanted just plain distilled water but of course that wouldn't end up too well. I was also planning on hiding the res, but for filling annd seeing the fluid levels I figured I might as well have it visible. (Although, my red cathode makes it look like my res is completely empty and clear. It's weird.)

Run a 99.9% silver coil in your loop.
