Decided to do a bit of work. I really hate cleaning things and I don't want to waste time doing it while I'm building the actual desk. So I went to Walmart, picked up some cleaning stuff and took apart the one Koolance GPU block that I have with me (the other one is in Florida, I'll have to clean it when I get back in August).
With the block as old as it is, and who knows how long the dude before me was running his loop. I polished it as much as I could and cleaned off any gunk. Letting it all dry before I reapply it to the GPU (also removed the old TIM from the GPU and applied some new stuff). Unfortunately, the o-ring has expanded and is impossible to get back in, regardless of how I tried to shrink it. Kinda annoying. I emailed Koolance 5 days ago regarding extra o-rings anyways, so hopefully they'll order some. I'm not 100% satisfied with the cleaning on the other side (not pictured). I wish I had a way to get in between all the crevices. Might try again later
Also, since the front panel I/O thing I got has the typical ugly rainbow colored cables, I'm quickly spraying them black. I stuck the actual panel itself in a box and covered it well so it won't get sprayed. Yes, I operate in a ghetto fashion.
Used some heat shrink to make it easier to handle
