@ Hephasteus. Man you are really going to depress the people over at Rustoleum because they have this product line see and it, well, here: http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=119

Also the folks at wikipedia are going to be bummed too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primer_(paint

However, to be really really fair, the guys at Doctor Fausts Paint Clinic agree with you: http://www.paintingclinic.com/clinic/primer.htm

Maybe it's just Rustoleum trying to sell something but I like to give these guys the info instead of just saying don't do it. Let them decide, it builds brain cells.

Its puts less stress on your stiff h50 lines if you mount it with the corsair logo upside down.

Your build is so clean and tidy; I love it!

Edit** I keep looking at the picture of your rig, and then looking back at mine (repeat). I need to sleeve my cables & continue additional cable management. Compared to yours, mines u-g-l-y.

Oh yee of little faith. Out way before the projected release date CoolIT Systems has the ECO.

Not much better but a little better. Looks like the tubing is longer. Here's the chart: Attachment 153963
I mean, guys do push/pull to gain 3c right, why not get a better cooler?
Here's the link to thier site: http://www.coolitsystems.com/

The Egg has it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...TabStoreType=1

Performance Pc's has it: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27628

Google it guys, get some reviews don't just jump on it.

Oh yeah, there is already an owners club: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ners-club.html

As for Corsair, another message. They don't e-mail you, they e-mail you a link and you go to the link to see what they say. They again said they don't RMA parts unless they're defective. When I stated I don't care if it's defective, I wanted to give them a chance to own up to thier mistake, they replied by saying they will refer my case to a supervisor.

As for my rig. Know the fable "for the want of a nail"? Here's Todd singing it: film_go.pngYouTube- Todd Rundgren - Want of a Nail
In my case it's for the want of some bolts and nuts. I have one of these: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/unde3gunpubr.html No, actually I don't, mine has two holes on each side instead of those nice slots. What I needed was this: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/uinbrvebl.html

But I got what I got and it would be at least another week to fix it. However when you buy this: http://www.koolertek.com/computer-pa...p-224p1456.htm They give you nuts bolts & washers to fasten it to something like that bracket above. However, these guys: http://www.undesignsbrackets.com/products/ Who show great pictures on how to do it, Attachment 153969 don't give you the right screws. Or maybe it was Sidewinder that left them out of the bag, seeing as they sent me the wrong bracket in the first place. So, I need 3 of these: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/ststma05in6t.html and 3 of these: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/stst6nyinlo.html

If I knew they came like this, I would have got this instead: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25588

So, we had to go to the doctor today, I have a massive sinus infection (steroids anti-biotics), then we went to dinner, then there was no time to drill holes or mount anything, much less drain res, unscrew all comp fittings, put in new comp fittings, put in new res, take out old res (other way), put in LED's in res & pump top, wait for glue to dry, put in new tubing, cramp down on comp fittings until my fingers bleed, fill new res, use old PSU to power pump and test for leaks. No leaks (there won't be), fill res, put in silver kills coils, turn on pump, put sides back on computer.

Of course, having this time made me wonder about a few different places to mount the pump.
It can mount to the grill next to the vid card, turn the rad around and the loop is cleaner. Never seen this done before, it will take 1" extra tubing, I have 10ft extra. Distance from pump, rad, cpu would be very short, to res, back to pump will be long. With the pump on the back wall or the floor things get a little tight, especially if I add a new video card or two.

For the want of a bolt, the water cooling loop was delayed. Hmm, not very catchy. Oh, I can run it all anyway, zip tie it and bolt it later. I have to take the boys in for thier bath in the morning, then I'll take apart the loop.

Oh man, I really like the look of those video cards. I hope they go back to it. I do not like the look of the Evga 470 & 480's.

Triple agreed, Mindy's logo is upside down.

Gotta get up early, night all!!
