Random Noobie Tip

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
When finding the proper length for your tubes, make sure to leave enough to slide out your bay res for filling! redface.gif


I was reading through some guides and FAQs and came across this, something I would have completely overlooked ninja.gif I honestly would have screwed the thing in and made the tubing as short as possible...so...I thought I would post something here just in case others may not have thought twice when installing their bay res. Hope it helps!

nice tip. I thought about that after the fact, thank god I had enough tubing to get my res out.

I ended up just sliding my rom drives out and then sticking a house in the hole with a funnel on the end to fill my res up. smile.gif

Isn't it great when you look over your new creation, a feeling of completeness washing over you, sitting back in your arm chair to relax for the first time in 7 hours.. then noticing you've missed something that needs a complete tear down. RAGE.

Like when you have one of those evenings where you are going to chill out, you cook yourself dinner, open a bottle of cold beer, go upstairs, spend 5 minutes getting the most comfortable position on your bed, put a film on loud, start eating your food, and... then realise your left the beer downstairs

That, is a serious rage scenario

Hahaha, I do this almost every week.

By time you've done everything over again the beer is warm. Good lord is that a serious rage out scenario.

The badly timed landline call is a killer too.

A water cooling related tip: don't buy non-rotary directional adapters/fittings, no matter what angle you need them to point they will always tighten up pointing the exact opposite direction.
