Although it's still best to not get it in your mouth...

I know dogs get killed by it. For some reason they like the way it tastes and will drink it if they find some that spilled or leaked. I think they add chemicals that taste bad to store bought antifreeze. I have heard that pure ethylene glycol actually tastes sort of sweet.

It's hard to read the print on that corrosion standard sheet but the ones on the right seem to say corrosion on them and not tarnish like the others. I'm not positive but it looks like it could be corrosion.

I know you can get small pieces of metal like your water block plated pretty cheaply by metal shops. You could always get it chrome or nickel plated and not have to worry about any further corrosion.
thanks for the help, but it seems alot of other people have the same thing happen and it does not affect anything. I am just gonna clean it off and roll with it.

I started to put things into the case to see how well my ideas and plans for everything are going to mesh with the reality of how much stuff will fit in a case.

Much of the stuff you see in this update will be further modded/painted/arranged before it is done, so don't look in these pics and wonder why i didn't paint that rad before installing it.

first up, the 120mm rear rad:



note the sexy black oxide button head screws:



This shot really excites me. sooooo much better looking than before:



and again with the black oxide button heads :





remember this ugly little leaking bastard?



well now it is being replaced by it's sexy younger cousin:







enermax magmas on the top rad held on with even more black oxide screws:





decided i didn't like the red top on the EK block:



i think this looks much classier:





got my CPU block all cleaned up and reinstalled:



note that even the motherboard screws have been replaced with black ones:





set the new stuff in the bottom compartment to confirm that it will all actually fit:



looks like everything will fit nicely, only issue may be that the tube going from the pump to the rad may be like 4cm long:



the EK 240mm rad is going up front:



will even be able to keep and internal optical drive:





seemed like a good time for an overview shot:



fitting spce is gonna be tight up front:



put in one of the GPUs real quick just to get an idea of how things will be going in here:



the block does bend the PCB a bit, but i think the SLI block will help that out:





started to work on making the backplates and the blocks play nice together:





and this is where i realized my drill is dead...

either the charger for the battery or the battery has given up on life and as such i cannot drill any holes until i get a new one.

that puts a serious damper on how much modding i can do...

but on a brighter note, I am in the home stretch!!!!

My (correct) res should be here tomorrow or monday, and then i will have everything. I am visiting home this weekend which means no mod work, but i may be able to score a new drill from the parentals.

so whatcha think?

man you're gonna have heaps of rads! looking good, i'm pretty sure that your copper has tarnished and gone off-colour but i could be wrong. good luck with the rest, it's looking great!
