Wiring wise its the best i could do the dam atx 4 pin was suuuch a pain i had to use 2 extentions thats how short the bloody thing was other then that the Ocz powersupply is pretty good so far quiet just installed it so lets see how long it will last but for 35 bucks i aint gonna complain. the 24 pin connector i wanna get a nice sleeved one but there is an extension to it a little 3 prong connector i think its for the front pannel so that didnt work out. Ill see what i can do i like the black tubing its sexy i wont lie.

I started this only wanting to change tubing and res as the res had a crack next thing i know after running leak test my block the Apogee gt started to leak i was like bloody hell all that work so had to wait a week and then start all over and re tube and recut the tubings as the Apogee xt sits lower then the gt but after some more tubing it worked out had a little leak at the bottom of the res i retighted the bolt and everything is fine finally. I thought it was already tightened from the factory guess not. i didnt notice it till like 2 days late cause there was little a little dried up smudge on top of the Dvd burner. lol i leave a tissue there to make sure but nothing for the past 3 days so were good.

Sorry im not a fan of those 800-1000 watt psu 600 is mooore then enough and i got the psu because it was Modular and before this i had the OCZ GameXtream its still working after 4 years i think.

And for the tubing for my case and for switching liquids u need to have long tubes and to be able to close the case these are thicker tubes so u cant bend them like the clear ones. Well you can but i prefer the way i did it from the cpu to the videocard.

Agreed. You could probably cut almost half of it out. Would make it look substantially cleaner.

i did have it shorter before but changing the water and all it was too much of a hassle the only tubes i made longer this time around are the tubes from the cpu to gpu and the tubes connected to the res. The rest is necessary because of obsticles in the way.
