As far as sleeving/wiring, check out this thread by Lutro0: http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...tutorials.html. He does awesome work and is always willing to help.

Subbed!
thanks for the link, plus rep.

After saying that I bought extensions for the PSU main cables as I didn't want to risk cocking up the 24 pin, PCIE or 8 pin CPU cables.
Thats good to hear, I have very little experience with soldering and wiring (made a custom joystick once for my PS3, but that's it). I hear you with the PSU extensions, I don't to deal with more then 3 wires at at time.

Not so much discipline as my schedule not letting me do more then an hour or so a day.

so your saying if i buy one now, that i have a better chance of getting one that flakes?

Im just saying because you said only those bought much more recently

They did come around eventually, and offered to pay for shipping both ways for the exchange process. They also updated their nickle plating process (though these blocks cost more now).

Me personally, I haven't had any issues with EK, but I would avoid their nickle plated (with the older method of applying) blocks. The ram sink I have is one of the older style. No guarantee it will flake but since its hasn't, I cant RMA it yet. I could just buy another but the pile of shame (spare parts I am not using) is big enough. As far as the rest of the EK catalog, I like the look and the performance is good, so till I have a reason to stop using them I will continue to do so.

So if you had all the money in the world and could buy anything for your rig,
what would be your first best choice besides EK for your blocks?

For appearance. Dangerden or koolance. All the blocks perform similarly temperature wise. I personally love dangerdens black chrome 570/580 blocks and will be buying some for myself for christmas.

Koolance or Danger Den. XSPC is also good, but somewhat budget-oriented.

...and Bitspower for the fittings. I'm sad that my current loop is Bitspower-less.

Well, all the name brand water blocks are separated performance wise by slim margins. But if I were to start from scratch......hmmm. Not based on looks but whiz bang features I would go with aquacomputer. They have so many cool accessories to monitor and control your loop, and build quality looks great. If I were starting fresh and going for looks, I would build using Koolance parts. I like their style, though I am happy with what I have now.

It's a matter of taste, but I have never been a fan of danger dens style.

Bitspower is the darling of fittings, but the koolance compression fittings I use are great too.
