nice. that 655 is pumping good hey?

i see some crooked fans, a tube reseivoir that cant be hidden away....and might not be high enough..

what else is wrong with the loop itself?

well, nothing is level, not even the picture

Aside from the crooked fans; I can see he has some cable management issues as well, this will no doubt affect the temperatures inside the case.

Looks to me like the cold cathode tube was installed into the case when it was upright; would have been easier (in the long run) to lay the case on it's side...the same goes for the w/c loop as well.

okay thanks :D i am planning to redo this build. any tips on where i can mount that 250 rez? besides where it is now? im thinking of placing it outside of the case.

I see what looks to be 2 fans missing screws and the others must be loose also getting ready to fall on the back of the GPU. [I love the smell of GPU's burning in the morning] just kidding
-res to pump tube has a kink also maybe ?
-I would mount the pump facing up under the res[move res up a bit] and the output of the pump facing to the rear should give you room to gently run the tube to the cpu.

wow, that's the first time I saw a reservoir mounted upside down.

Most people have the inlet and outlet at the bottom, and use the top for a fill port. The way you have it, when water starts to evaporate and there is space at the top.. you will get a "waterfall" effect, which will introduce more air in the water, and lead to stuck air bubbles in your rad and possibly your CPU waterblock over time.

Your fans aren't even mounted on the radiator correctly, and you need to spend a lot more time cabling.

Here are some example setups for the ATCS840:

if u look closely at the rez u can see that the inner tube is set similar to yours. that u posted.
yeah i gotta find time to do that cabling. so mounting the pump and rez in a line will fix the kink eh i'll try that :D thanks everyone for the feedback :D

as per above, you kind of need 'a place for bubbles to call home' :p

if you cut/remove lower hdd cage part thingie pump could go there.

and get a square rez to put in the 5.25" bay place to save some room.
