Patience, my Young apprentice. Patience... ROFL

Did you give shoprbc.com a call, about the Koolance parts availability? They're located in Nepean (next to Ottawa); been a few times from Montreal, to buy my Koolance parts. They just may have the blocks faster.

I've never dealt with Koolance directly.

I have not a clue how im gonna mount that rad up inside the case under the fan. I took the fan grills off and it sits pretty good, but holding it up there is gonna be a whole other ball game.... Two -way tape??

That's a 200mm fan, right? You'll have to create a shoud to structurally attach the fan to the rad. And then add support brackets for the other end of the rad.

One aspect of water-cooling is to be creative. And double-sided tape is not a good idea.

I ripped the top of the case off tonight and tried to fend my 2yr old off in the process.... I can mount the rad to the case using the screw holes in the rad, but Ill need to drill some clearnace holes in the case. The only PROBLEM i can see is the end of the rad being to close to the reservoir if i put it on the top bay. im gonna have to spend some time and rearrange everyting... move the hard drives down, remove the HD fan and see whats what.....

What I will do is rip off the top again next week (the kids and momma are on vacation eleswheres) and fire the rad in, and put the res in and take some photos for you too see......

OKay,,, since I cant really do anything until I get the GPU blocks..... I think I am going to try and get the rad installed and pump, and figure out where everyhting is gonna go.

I had some spare time so I think I have my fittings all ready to go... I have some 90 degrees if I need them, and also 2 quick disconnects for the fill tube and drain...

Yup, good thing to start the lay-out physically.
You bought which GPU blocks?
