6 compression fittings come in each Monsoon kit, plus a wrench (specified to whichever diameter compression you're using). Pretty good deal. I've been a fan of Monsoon since they launched.

You gonna sleeve your wires, Pabz?

The packs come with 6 fittings in each for $36 from frozencpu. The angled fittings are a bit more expensive at ~$10 each but to me it's worth it. They also have 45 degree angled fittings but I am not sure I will need any. Thanks for the offer dude but I got the NZXT Hue RGB LED controller for the build. After second thoughts I could have easily went with a simple white strip as that is likely what I will run in there but I might toy with the yellow for a bit. :D

*actually maybe I could snag 2 of em from ya for the case power and hdd led. :) That might be a nice little touch. Are they 3 or 5mm?

Definitely. I am even taking it to the next step of doing fully custom length wires for awesome cable management. Going with MDPC Shade 19 and Yellow in this pattern with Shade19 as the primary color. I'm thinking of moving the yellow wires inwards 1 wire though. I am open to suggestions and would love to hear what you guys think about sleeving design.

Got my mobo and CPU a couple days a go just waiting on my mushkins from newegg. They will be here today as they just arrived at the edmonton depot :) Also please forgive the photo quality. I just learned about the iso setting and I am going to go over to my moms today and borrow her tripod. Good thing I moved 3 doors down from her. :)

Test fitted most of the hardware yesterday. More shots to come soon!





(trying to take some cool angled shots like I see most folks do)




reservoir test mounted with double sided tape. I thought I might be able to get away with just the tape but quickly found otherwise.


I can't figure out how to take a pic with the side panel on and noreflection for the life of me. THis is the best I could do.

I just wanna be like mike. U know who u are!


Installed this beauty today. Busted out the food handling gloves for this. I didn't wanna murk it up with fingerprints.



And ooh look what showed up not too long ago.

I'm toying with the idea of removing the sinks and alternating them up and down. Also might want to get some yellow on there.
