Update: 1/20/2013

I got a little mod work done on the case. So I needed to mod the top since I have decided to not use a fan controller and use a third outake fan on the top. Thus I needed to cut some plastic. I will do all the metal cutting next weekend hopefully.


Before


After

I also forgot to post pics of my ColdZero package.


This contains one LED Strip, 30 meters of 2mm sleeving, 30 meters of white 18g wire, and some pins biggrin.gif

I will tell you now without pictures of my own but the way the bridges work is actually quite simple.



This is proabably the best shot to help. The Blocks themselves come with the FC Link that ports the blocks inlets and outlets to the side and then you can either decide to put fittings on from there or you may choose to purchase a FC Bridge. You have many different bridges to chose from depending on the amount of graphics cards you are cooling. In my case I am using only one GPU so I am purchasing the Single FC Brigde. This has inlet/outlet wholes on the top, bottom, and one side. This allows me to port water in many combinations of directions from Top/Top, Top/Bottom, and to Bottom/Bottom. The larger bridges that support more than one GPU are cool because you can simply block off the outlets in case you plan on adding another GPU to the system or want a gap between the GPUs. This FC Bridge System was obviously designed to be fully customizable to the user but has its draw backs since you are being forced to buy extra adapters if you do not want your loop going straight out the bottom of the block.

Bah well that's not really what I wanted. I have a prodigy, so the block will be right against the side-panel and I was looking for a low-profile system to re-route the tubing in/outlets

Yea it does stick out about an inch more. I would just get an extended fitting with two 90 degree fittings and route it that way.

Up is better than towards the case haha. I'm looking for a solution that would enable me to have the fittings come out top instead of the site.

Wait ... you said the card comes with something that can make the fittings fit vertically?



So the acrylic rectangular prism fits on the side, and I can mount the fittings on-top?
