Yeah it is. There is pressure between the bottom of the rad and the heatsink though. Heatsink was bent downwards a tiny bit, but it's not really noticable. Still 100% intact with motherboard.


More pictures are up.

Couldn't find them. :( Checked many times! Well I'll be off to Rona or Home Hardware tomorrow to grab some. Hopefully they'll have it. Looks like NCIX has my tubing order ready, so I'll be picking that up too.

Yup that is where I get 99% of my mounting hardware. Well CT anyways not in Alberta. LOL

Looking good, though as others have stated I would worry about the contact with the HS after putting pressure on it, well you should know right away when you power it up and check temps.

Suggestions on how to set up my loop guys? I don't know if there will be enough space in the 5.25" bays to stuff my res and pump. Or if the tubing will move around nicely there without kinking. I'd like the avoid anything other than straight fittings if possible. Mostly because those special fittings seem expensive. That's right, I'm cheap and poor.
