Looking good @White Wyvern! I don't use anything but EK hard tubing anymore from those kinds of issues... they're just frustrating.
Speaking of which: I upgraded my 3570k (the mobo went tits up) to a 4790k on an mITX Asus Impact VII.
-Added feet to make it easier to grab at the bottom for moving around
-Painted grills to match cables inside
-new mobo, mobo block, cpu
-used my 3M PCIe riser card to move the 295x2 over a few slots to fit in...
-a dual-pass Black Ice 160 rad over the mobo. I put it in the loop after the CPU and before the GPU with two 80mm fans in pull out the back. Awesome!
-re-arranged the internal routing, cabling, and fan configuration.
Here she is:
On the PSU i mounted a 4-pin fan distributor rail for power, and I soldered a jumper to the bottom of the circuit board so all 8 lanes now share the same PWM signal line, giving me an additional header to use.
