I am about to begin phase 2 of painting, have the rest of the stuff ordered and shipped out but will not arrive for a few days. Wanted to get the painting done and let it dry all the way.

Just my opinion of course, but if I were you I would get a can or 2 of rustoleum clear coat. either glossy or matte or whatever you want, but it will help protect your paint from getting scratched when installing and removing fans for cleaning etc. thumb.gif

Okay one more question. I ordered the XSPC x20 750 pump but however this is what I got in place of it.


XSPC D5 Dual Bay Reservoir/Pump Combo

The price difference in these pumps are very different. The pump I received is better then the pump I ordered. So I had been studying up on the x20 but I guess I have to study on this one now. Should I keep the one I got which I only paid 49.00 for?

Well, hell, you got lucky then! I'd take the D5 pump anyday, it's newer, better, and more reliable. The pump alone is worth $70 at least.

Picture Update paint.

Phase 2 painting is done and drying.

I hope it is to every body's approval.
The pump and packing list. I scored and even have more room to upgrade.

Fitting and crossing fingers.


The radiators
My first time painting or modding so everyone knows how that is I guess. ph34r-smiley.gif




I am happy with the progress so far. You can look at the pic with packing slip and see what I had ordered and what arrived. I am lucky but now I have to order more clear and blue tubing.

Almost dry



In the morrow I will start installing these. Probably will be a couple of days before anymore pics. First they have to be clean but wanted to wait for at least 24 hours before wiping with any type solution.
