Congrats man, and how are you liking the Raystorm? I finished my build a little over two weeks ago, and I'm about to purchase a WC set up. Was thinking about going with a EK Supreme but the Raystorm is a lot more affordable and the LED is slick. I heard it cools nicely too. Does the Waterblock come with different LEDS/ are they easily changeable?

umm mine only came with blue leds and very easy to change. only bad thing about raystorm is no instruction took me about 45mins to mount the dam thing i really wanted to make sure it was right.

Yea I liked the raystorm but was like *** when no instruction manual came with it.

Good job with the setup, just sucks that you are now infected with the itch.

Yeh, thats fine if you over do it you can strip them, the seal is made by the O right not the thread. I normally do it by hand and then nip it with a spanner (not much at all)

24 leak test is OTT, watch it for a few hours while removing air bubbles and if no leaks then, you wont get any. The pressure in the loop does not alter so X=Y in terms of how long you need to leave it leak testing for.
