Looks great! Too bad about the pics- I know what you mean about the NB heatsinks- with that very small surface area, it's hard to know that the HS is sitting level. I suspect that it's safer that our instinct tell us though. I did notice that the lower right of your D-Tek looks tighter than the upper-left, but I'm sure you'll be fine-tuning the tensions some more.

Yeah and there was some pads included that which i had to put on the green area around the core. And that make sure i don't crush the NB core. I just hope it's making good contact!

How dirty were your old waterblocks inside? How long that they been used since they were last cleaned- are you going to flush your rad? You also mentioned that you were wondering if you should use it- why not?

Distilled water flushing for the rad and blocks is more than enough. Remember i told you sometime ago that i did about 5 watercooling build in a year and a half (And that include a month of an air cooling) ? Well, this one will be my 6th lol! So, i must say that my blocks were already pretty clean you know. Maybe like a few months of use ( 3 - 4 ) since my last cleaning. Yes, my rad was also flushed with distilled water as well. And what i said is that i was wondering if i should use the Thermochill 120.3 Rad grill over the separate 120mm fan grill i bought I decided to use the separate fan grills.

Now gotta get back to sleep!

Little update on why it's taking so long...lol

I bought a 8800GTX and am replacing my X19s for it. Also trying to put my hands on an EK 8800GTX WB... If i can't find one, ill get a DD 8800GTX WB.

Ill sell my X19s pretty soon. If anyone interested, just PM me. It's official that ill sell them just didn't had time to post take pics of the card with there stock coolers on. And i respect the rules. I won't sell the cards to someone in here until i posted them for sale in the appropriate forum section with the pics. Just letting you guys know...

So, am waiting for my 8800GTX to arrive as well as a 8800GTX WB before doing the loop. I might have to test run everything on air first so ill post pics for sure!
