Can't wait, the more people we can suck into WC, the better . I'm actually quite astonished I missed this thread when you were looking for help. That said, seems you picked out some great parts and can't wait to see your build .

The bulk of it is done today. More sleeving once the kit is in stock

Looks good! Seems you went a bit overboard on the tubing thou . Have you filled it yet? If not I'd see if you can't "flip" the radiators so the barbs are facing your computer, this should reduce tubing length by a decent amount. Damn, just noticed the reservoir, loops filled?

Another issue, you installed the reservoir inlet/outlet tubing backwards. The "hot"(inlet) water is suppose to connect to the top barb, and the outlet to the pump is suppose to be connected to the bottom barb. That being said its not gonna hurt your flow rates in any discernible amount. For sure not enough to worry about or worth taking apart you loop to fix it. Something to keep in mind next time you drain it thou.

Not bad as it is your first loop, keep this up and you'll be a pro in no time.

Thanks for the advice man

The reason I couldn't turn the barbs facing towards the PCI slots is because I don't have a dremel to create the slot big enough, so I had to do it to prevent kinking.

Just a thought... Not sure if it would work out, you'd have to lay it out and see what's what, but maybe configure the rads side by side and put them on the mobo side of the case. Put the barbs at the bottom so you can stick the hoses in at the bottom near the pumps. I bet you don't have temp probs now, but IMHO a triple is HUGE over kill for a CPU. Certainly nothing wrong with using a triple, but if you wan't to get away with a smaller rad or less fans for noise issues you have that option. BTW you really don't want to make holes for hoses with a dremel, they make straight cuts sorta OK depending on how steady your hand is. Use a hole saw or a punch like above, it will be much cleaner and easier and faster and cheaper. A punch will do lots of holes before the die wears out so it would probably a lifetime tool if this is just a hobby for you but those fiber disks for the dremel get costly quickly.... and they don't like turning corners.

BTW.. put your location in you profile or sig!!! If people know you're local you might get an offer or two to borrow a tool... (just an example in this particular case)

Sorry if that sounded like a lecture! Wasn't meant to.

Thanks Biff. No worries, I learned a lot from it.
I could've borrowed Vortex's dremel and tools, but I didn't really want to hassle him that much.

Anywhoo, I guess that'll be the next project I do. Invert the RAD
