+1 to this.. looks really sleek, and I see lots of people buying those.. it'll match your case too, since it's black

You're better of going for the res/pump combo and a separate fan controller, and you will save money too.. the Koolance one is like $100+ I believe, this XSPC res is like $60, plus a fan controller, imo I don't think you'll need to spend $60, they are some really nice simple ones for $40.. and still have $20 in your pocket right?

Oh and +1 to the HWC community for convincing me to get a pump/res combo too

My System Specs


Well, much to my own surprise I stuck with the WC stuff I already had.

I am having one problem as I was bleeding the line. The paperclip method on the motherboard was working fine until the paperclip fell out and I went to put it back in. The #16 green wire sparked as I was putting it in the 24Pin connector. The power supply was unplugged.too.

Now my PSU makes this quiet high frequency intermittent beeping noise every 1.5 seconds and now my Corsair AX850 won't turn on.

Did I pooch it?

Update I got it working again. The paperclip just wasn't in far enough.

Now I want to start the computer without the paperclip. I plugged everything in and plugged the PSU in, but it didn't turn on. Is there something I'm missing?
