Is anyone here running an XSPC cpu block with the Maximus Formula VI or VII mobo? I want to use 90 degree compression fittings to make a straight line with no bends in the hose between the Cross-Chill on the mobo with the cpu block. Wanted to see if the 90 degree in the cpu block lines up pretty much the same height as the 90 degree on the mobo?

I just received my XSPC EX water cooling kit in the mail with the EX 420 radiator and upon unpacking it I'm a bit worried about the paint job on the radiator. This is my first true water cooling setup, so I am not sure if this is typical or not but neither of my all in one rads look like this. If you look at the radiator from straight on 90 degree angle with the fins it looks okay but if you tilt it in any direction you can clearly see that the fins have not been painted very well. Should I request an RMA for the rad? I purchased the $189 kit from frozencpu with a 750 x20 bay res pump/resovoir and the ex 420 radiator. Should I go ahead and spend $100 more to get the RX radiator and D5 pump while I'm at it? I plan to water cool the CPU, 1 GPU, and the motherboard when I upgrade to x97 here in a few months.

It's supposed to look like that. A very thin coat is applied to the fins as to not detract from the cooling potential of them.

Okay, I kind of though that might be the case but neither of my all in one coolers look like that so I was a bit surprised. I already put in the RMA though, lol, asking if I could return the kit and upgrade to the D5, RX version, which I would like to do either way, I just don't want to pay a %20 restocking fee. redface.gif But if there is truly nothing wrong with the rad then I guess it just my own indecisiveness and penny pinching to blame.

I want to replace my LED's for the water block and reservoir with some red one's. Anybody know where to find a LED led that will fit that isn't too expensive?

3mm twin leds needed for the block.

i believe the reservoir is a 5mm led.
sorry could not find a link for the reservoir led...

EDIT: here ya go.

please note i have not fitted the reservoir led so i can't guarantee you 5mm will work but i am pretty sure it will
