Definitely a strong mounting bracket than 1/4" acrylic. Even if it doesn't break, the flex could be making the block put uneven pressure on the CPU. 1/8" steel sounds good.

Like Dazmode said, if you're going to take everything apart, it might not hurt to switch the CPU and T-line. It may bleed slower, but the main loop will appreciate the straighter flow path. But like you said, you've probably still got more than enough pumping power for your current loop.

Other than that, looking good!

Yeah I bought it used, just came with the the one block. I believe its just an apogee, no gt or nothing.

I think it'd be pretty easy to fab up another mount from aluminum or steel.

Isn't that orange stuff weird? Against black it's green, against natural light it's pink, under fluorescent lighting it's orange and in the bottle it's orange pink. And now I have 1 and 1/4 bottles of the stuff lol, gonna add it to my collection of Feser products:)

At any rate, great to see that you had no major issues with your first build, wouldn't want you getting scared off your first time taking a dip under water. +1 for the comments on the T, should see a large improvement in flow with them switched, so if it's the vario version you can turn that pump down to silent.

I find the best to use both tube and coolant same color, then it less prone to change in lightning. Perhaps you can add more Orange Feser Dye to darken it?

Nah, next loop is some nice Pro LRT red and distilled water.

Aviduser, when is the teardown scheduled for? I'm getting chills looking at that acrylic cover:)

Hopefully tonight, the acrylic doesn't seem too bad. But I'm definetly changing it within a day or two.
