Type my location into google, i'm in one of the largest ski resorts in Colorado. Those mountains are part of 10 mile range in the central Colorado rockies about 2 hour drive west of Denver.

Hadn't looked through this build log yet, just had a good read through now.
Very well documented and written, and I think many of us can relate to a lot of it.

To quote your introduction from page 1:

"This build log will be a timeline of the trials and errors that i go through while attempting to build my first high end watercooled PC. I learn fast and have ambitious plans but there will be plenty of pain along the way as it is a learning experience. The build is more about the experience of getting to the end than the finished product. One day it'll be finished and i'll be itching to build something new."

Very true. And how a simple upgrade can mushroom into a major build.

Enjoyed following the build, and looking forward to the updates.
Excellent job.

Thanks. Its funny how that happens. I was looking for a new hobby to sink time into and after i discovered OCN last year i was pretty much sold on doing something like this. Had no idea that watercooling and PC building had advanced so much. I love building and modding things so it seemed the perfect thing for me to do.

Near the end of this month i'm going to get this build back underway. I've ordered everything i need to wire and sleeve everything and i'll have time to redo all the tubing.

Also for anyone who has read the previous OP i've streamlined it significantly to get only relevant information in there and fully updated it to the builds current status. Only thing lacking right now is the pics section.

Not bad for a city of 80-90K people. There are more in the towns around here too, Redmond 20 miles away has almost as many. The only city in the state that beats us per capita is Portland. Those hipster douchebags.

I cross posted this in the mayhems club thread but figured i'd post it here too.
Quote:
So i got home earlier this week after being out of town for nearly a month. To my surprise my loop looked like this after sitting for a month.





Is this UV damage, life, or both? One side of my rig was exposed to indirect sunlight during this time after someone stopped by and decided to open up the blinds after i left. I'm using mayhems pastel extreme mixed with 2.5L of distilled water and 2 bottles of mayhems non stain blue dye. It appears to be damaged pastel that fell out of suspension during that time and was exposed to sunlight. However in the bottom left corner of the gpu block it looks like algae. Its much greener than the picture shows and it seems to be spreading. I find that a bit odd since the pastel extreme has growth inhibitors in it. The rest of the loop that was not exposed to sunlight is fine. Everything works great and cools great. Obviously i need to clean it and change the fluid, i'm just curious if that is life growing in there or not? If so, why is it there? Does UV exposure break down the growth inhibitors?

Btw, i know the block(s) needs cleaning. Those are fibers from paper towels which were used around fittings to soak up excess fluid while i was dismantling the loop a couple months ago. Those paper towels were particularly bad with shedding fibers and i didn't clean out the fittings.

Looks like i'll be making those changes to the tubing and lower pump this week now. Ugh, i just wanted to play TW3 Blood and Wine first.
