Radiators are flushed. Dang! The XSPC EX series has a lot of crap in them. Took me a long while to get them done. I also configured the pump-res-drain combo, and it looks freaking awesome. Now that I see the build coming together, I'm reconsidering getting the rig up and running right now and wait to purchase some Mayhems Pastel Blue Berry from PPCS. Tell me what you guys think, Distilled or Coolant?

I'd go for blue coolant!

Can't wait for the pics!

Thanks for the input. Ordering it and some extra fittings I forgot right now. Also began to tube up today. Stay tuned.

Hello guys. I'm sure that you have been wondering where I've been. I'll give you the run down. I have been recording this whole log on my parents mac, and the other day the hard drive failed and it took the apple store guys 5 days and $200 to fix, because my mom didn't want me to build her a new one mad.gif Nevertheless, I filled the loop and I didn't attach the fittings quite right so it leaked everywhere and caused a big mess, so my new coolant should be here tomorrow. I'll have pics of the system by Wednesday- Thursday depending on when it gets here.

There you are!!!

Good luck cleaning up that mess. Coolant is quite sticky.

So I just recut some acrylic today and replanned the loop. Drainage will work a lot more effectively and it looks better as well. I can't upload the photos I took right now because the computer is re-downloading everything we backed up with Carbonite, so by tomorrow I should get the coolant, hopefully get the loop up, and here's hoping I can finally share some photos. Everyone comes for pics and I have none! (sigh) From what I saw before it exploded with coolant, it looked pretty cool. Keep in mind I still haven't started custom wiring, so this build log will be stretched out till almost February. I'm gonna hit the books tonight and knock out the Homework due for 2 days in advance so I can devote a solid 5-7 hours at home for filling and leak testing. Thanks for your patience and support guys.

Stuff didn't come. Tracking says its still in Florida. Not being on your PC for about a month really puts a downer on your spirits.

Hey guys. Stuff arrived. I've got pics of it coming, but I'm posting on it right now. I've been cleaning out my old 7850 drivers and installing new 580 drivers and am running on Intel graphics right now. I realized I had a driver problem because all of my games were crashing. Downloading as we speak and then I can get some good light and take some HIGH QUALITY photos. Also, just ordered cable extensions, so the whole thing should be complete within the week. Thanks for all the support, I know it hasn't been very entertaining at times, but it is almost complete. I have a sneaking suspicion that you guys will quite enjoy the final watercooling loop even without the cables.
