So I had to redo the brackets since they were forcing the case apart....

TO make things easier...

Spoted a leak after 5 mins of getting the bubbles out... Now I get to refill the loop, yay lol

Success, she lives and she breathes fire! Its actually weird, when I was just switching the system on and off the PMW fans were on their lowest settings If I am correct and once I booted into bios they all ramped up to 100% and it has to be the coolest sound in I've ever heard, its like a whisper straight to a jet like whir. Just these six move a ton of air on lowest RPM and I still have to throw in 4 outlet fans XD

Yeah having all those fans are cool but just be on the lookout for dust, I have 11 High RPM fans in my system and within 2 days after I clean it it's all back in there again and this is with all of them set as low as they will go and some completely off. thumb.gif

Im going to buy one of those electric air can so I don't waste money on cans of air and its much stronger and more consistent and there is no chance of water coming out of it. I just have to be careful with the rad because the fins are very fragile.

Finally got windows 7 installed. Idle temps are 14 22 17 29. I think the settings aren't running as low as they should on idle. The bus seems to be tweaked as its reporting 100.52 in CPU Z. GPU temp is idle 22c.

Im still in the process of updating all the BIOS and drivers, once its all up to date I will start benching and overclocking. Ill probably have some good results by the end of the day. Wish me luck!

I have finally got a decent OC at 4.8ghz. Idle temps are 35-33-23-30. Max temps are all ~55-64.

CPU-Z validation of max OC: http://valid.canardpc.com/2695013

Haha thanks! I will be trying to do the sleeving for the build this coming weekend. I finally got my project at work finished so I just need the open weekend to do it.

Keep yourselves hungry.
