Cool, cool. I can't wait to see pics man! What you making me wait so long for? This is gonna be particularly sexy, and like waiting for this is like waiting for your girlfriend to finish deciding a dress for a date or something! XD

And I also can't wait to get my setup going. Waiting for money sucks :p

Imageshack is uploading them as I type! There is nothing to get excited about, just some shots. I also just got my compressions in yesterday!

I like this pic, took it by accident when the camera was dangling around my neck. Turned out pretty good.




First use of the Compression Fittings. Things to do at this point: Clean the exterior of the radiator.
Note: Use plyers or your finger will be raw, and bleed - for real.



From that 480 Radiator, it comes the Apogee XT, which will be meating some compressions once the 45-degree adapters come in. At the bottom, you see the North Bridge water block, which will have a 45-degree adapter compression corrasponding to one of the CPU ones. Cleans up that big curve!
Things to do at this point: Polish/ Clean the CPU block, and NB.



Next up (from the NB) is the 240 Radiator, which is blowing cool air from the front intake fans of the Antec 1200 into the radiaor, and than into the case following the Radiator fans. Almost like a push-pull.
Note: This radiator will not be seeing compression fitting. I made "dam" sure that the hose clamps are on there, and are "hidden". Those things are not coming off anytime soon!



Next up is the 4870X2, which is being cooled by a Koolance waterblock (or KoolKrap if you prefer). I will be replacing that standard barb with a compression fitting. This is the block that requires barbs with few threads. The BitsPowers ones seems to be short enough, a test will tell in the future.



A messy front shot...



And to end things off (for now) is just a shot of the 480 radiator. Thing is big!



Still need to clean the inside of my case, its been collecting dust for some time now with the pannel off and front intake fans going 24/7 (to dry any distilled water my towel missed). I also plan on giving the whole thing a good cleaning - Interior and Exterior! As well as buffing out any scratches, all of which are hidden/ un-noticed.

I think the greatest thing this thing will see is a dusting rage and some cleaner! It's filthy!
