Nice looking loop there Box, and yes, fast enough for me:).

Did your sudsy look wear off quickly? I'm itching to get a live run but atm mine has that suds-upped look to it and its ever so slowly lessening.

Most of the suds went away after 3 or 4 hours and almost fully after about 8. I dont know if it helped at all, but during the first few hours I would turn the pump off and let things sit for a while (30mins ish) then start things up again for an hour or so. It seemed to help things go faster, but that could be my wishful thinking...

On a side note, I've seen a fair bit of hype over diamond based thermal compound for a little while and was thinking of staging an experiment of my own to see if there was a large improvement over other compounds. I know ebay has some diamond powder for pretty good prices, but I still need to find some good silicon to hold the dust. Any ideas?

Looks great!!!!

I love the look of the side grill on that case. I also didn't realise that it was "backwards" with the access on the opposite side.

As far as the "foam" goes...... I've had a lot of luck getting rid of air bubbles/pockets by running 5 minutes, shutting down for one, then back up for 5. Usually takes about an hour for 95% of the bubbles to be gone, and those work themselves out over time.

Not sure if that would solve the foam issue with the water replacement you're using.
