Excuse the brain fart... LOL It all just clicked. I guess paranoia kicked in just before I'm about to fill her up. Honestly this wait is horrible. Stuck on an i3 Lenovo that doesn't have an ssd. #torture

All prepped up and ready for the coolant. Cables removed. 24 pin jumped etc etc

Yea my school has 100 down 50 up (rock on fibre in Albany!)... obviously capping our internet surprise surprise... hope the anticipation was worth it wink.gif

UPDATE!!

Okay there's a lot to talk about. It has been an eventful night to say the least.... Lets just say it got a bit wet and sticky *insert sex connated joke here*

I figured this would be enough tissues tongue.gif Glad I was over cautious as I goofed from my own stupidity #HUGESPILLAGE.




NOOOOOO. My school shirt is stained and spillage. Goof x 2




I guess I have some explaining to do... Well at the top of the reservoir I placed my compression fitting and the tubing that would go to my funnel except *stupidmoveincoming* I didnt put the screw of the compression fitting on the tubing so it was loose as...
Well I used the first litre and went to grab the second bottle, I accidentally knocked the tubing pulling it out of the fitting and the coolant started to dribble down the side of the motherboard tray and some went onto the front panel switch connectors on the motherboard. other than that everything was okay. Dried everything out and let it dry for 6 hours (work).




I am currently leak testing it overnight. Other than the spillage there was no leakage at all anywhere throughout the system (STOKED!) but better safe than sorry. Glamour shots will come tomorrow. Exhausted.

FINE... One to tempt you.


As usual, any feedback, improvements and comments are appreciated whatever you say. The build is 95% done at this stage with just some minor things that need doing. ENJOY!

Thankfully it came off my hands... not so much the sheets and shirt but they can always be replaced. Yea agreed, I was considering going for distilled but there was no Blood Red coloured tubing that was anything similar to this coolant so I was a bit forced into choosing coolant over distilled due to aesthetics.
