I'm guessing it's close to it now. It's surely becoming quite difficult to move!

Got everything up and running though and it's bleeding now. Seems to be taking quite some time though, but whatever.

I should of used a piece of orange tube to keep things consistent, but I had a perfect sized piece of blue just lying around so I used it instead. Still an extremely tight fit though.

I love the color choice of your tubing actually. I think it looks really good like that. I must say this case is THE MACK DADDY.

I wish all your pics were in full size.

I think I can consider it finally finished!

Sadly it looks like some of the UV LED's in my reservoir are burning out since they aren't very bright. At the same time though, Feser UV Orange fluid is rather disappointing. It's definitely not very orange at all. It's more of a yellow/green colour IMO. At least the orange tubing is more true-to-life.

As you may notice, I replaced that little piece of blue tube with orange. I ended up having to drain everything yet again since it wasn't bleeding. 3rd time was a charm.

Although having two loops, each with 360 radiators for a single CPU and GPU is absolute overkill, I think the end results look quite nice. I think next time though I might do the GPU loop in orange and the CPU loop in blue. I'm kind of tired of blue now and definitely prefer how orange looks under UV.

I'll likely swap out the bottom radiator (SR1-360) to a 240 variant in the future too so that I can fit a bigger PSU in there. I may end up going X79/SLI but I think I'll wait for Ivy-E.

It works but it's a bit hard to bleed. Have to put the case at obscure angles to do it.

Actually it still isn't fully bleed, but whatever. In time it'll clear up.

Great work JD. I really like the final tubing combination. You have a really clean build there.
