Yes I think I will be only using these and Monsson Fittings for now on. But i have had several guys tell me about swiftech and they have made some nice looking matte black fittings so i might try a few of these also..

Also, ewww to the cutting drinks with water. I haven't been to a bar in a while, but I would have walked out and gone somewhere else. Sounds like one of those bars on Bar Rescue.


I have not had a chance to test these fans yet but looking forward to it. I will be giving some more information later about testing the Artic 14 Fan which is the same fan as the Gelid 14. I was surprised. but you will have to wait for this information..

Later I have family weekend, birthday paries, and things like this....

I found a good new Small Store that sells Water Cooling Parts. They have an eBay and Amazon Store. I had a really god experience with them. I had ordered 1 set of EK Ram Heat spreaders and USPS said it was delivered on 29th of April and when I was reviewing the purchase like I always do when I buy something. I told that they had good prices and shipped fast but I guess either the office where I live or my wife had lost this shipment as it was 9 May or I could not find it. And Eric the owner emailed me back and offered to send me a new set with no questions asked. Just so happened I checked mail on 11 May yesterday and guess what they were there then. I had contacted USPS and all they would tell me was that they were delivered. LOL I have bought several things from them and always good service. What I like is on eBay you can find items on sale and also Make an offer and if you are reasonable with you offer you can get these items for 5 to 10 dollars less than other places..

Crimping 12 AWG wire into Molex Pins. I have tried it and it dose not look the best but it dose work see below pictures


.


I know it dose not look the best in the world but it will go in the connector and I was unable to pull the wire loose. The second one I did also looked like this but i also used solder on it to make sure I got good connection and it still went all the way into the connector and works fine.

So the question of if you can Use 12 AWG wire is answered. But now the question is Do you want to and I do because I like the stiffer wire and makes it easier to train the wires.

Doesn't look too bad, are all these wires going to be sleeved?

]Something I learned. I had what I thought was a good idea to show the efficiency of a Fan and Radiator by heating the water to 50 degrees C and logging the temps and time it took to bring water down to a stable level using a 100 watt immersion heater. And all I found out with a 140mm EK rad and a Arctic Cool 140mm Fan at 540 RPM was that it dose bring the temp down but OMG it takes so long atfter 3.5 hours I finally turned the fan on full speed to bring the temp down and stabilize it. The fan at 540 RPM will keep a i5 CPU that is not over clocked cool but it has a delta T of 15 degrees. still learning how to get the results that I want and that will help people make informed choices with cooling... But the fan is a good looking fan and very quiet. I made a mistake and the noise meter I ordered only goes down to 30db so it dose not hear the fan. see the pictures below...

These fans were ordered in bulk from ebay got 10 of them for 20 dollars plus shipping from Hong Kong..

I have read that most of the decibel meters only start at 30 so unless you buy something really expensive it won't detect less than that, but it may be helpful once you start cramming lots of fans into the case. On another note, are you using the heatshrinkless method for sleeving? I think you will have problems fitting heatshrink into the plugs with high weight wiring, it may even be difficult with the shrinkless method.
