Keeping the watercooling hobby under control
 
After setting up my custom loop, there is nothing left to do regarding watercooling and it's agonizing. I already poured too much money into this, but I continue to have the urge to spend more.

I am considering squeezing in another 120mm rad into the rear exhaust port by getting the slimmest and and pair it up with a Scythe slip kaze. But it's kinda pointless since my current radiators are more than enough.

You guys ever have this problem???:sad:

Yes, yes I do.

BTW I can't wait to post pictures of this. It's my first real Custom loop and I think I did a pretty damn good job of keeping it tight and tidy.

What you need to do, is spend so much money on it, that it truly disgusts and scares you to ever do it again. That did it for me >.<

you've seen the movie money pit right????? ;)

Honestly though, I'm not sure there's any cure outside of having your tri-sli'd 580 cards take an accidental bath.... :)

Ha ha I loled at that yes been there but TBH thinking of coming back.
Thats is the thing for me I find the building and designing the fun part once it is together you start looking at the next loop and that my friend is where the wife usually steps in.

I haven't found a solution yet.

The way I see it: I could get some quick disconnects. I could start a new loop. I could change my tubing. I could get an external rad.

Or I could get a car next year.
