Here's a loop setup preview:



The shelf/shroud/rad/shroud/fan unit at 1ft. is 1" taller than the AC
Just gotta love overkill Running with AC on and ambient room temp of 21ºc the blocks are hitting a whoppin' 4ºc

*Note* Chrome paint ain't made for polyvinyl coffee cans

Man, i admire you. I love reading logs and stuff.
Great setup you got going there.
The only suggestions i can give you is to take your time.
I've had to do my setup over 2 times. It's not fun.
I rushed my first attempt and it looked crappy.
My second attempt was my fault ((Fried mobo do to lack of wire maintenance)) One of my fan harnesses ((sleeved)) touched the ram sink on mobo and melted on to mobo.
If you take your time and do it the way you want. It will look and preform the way you want it to.
If you want you can look at the pic in my Sig for suggestions. Not that you need any.
But here to help any way that i can.

PS:
Sorry for posting in your log, But everyone needs alittle encouragement to strive for perfection.
A MOD can delete this post if you want them to.

Thanks lohoutlaw! I ain't that way and this is my first log, as I stated in the first post I've become uninspired and your comments are just what the doctor odered. And in a hurry I ain't. Actually learned a few valuable lessons already by taking my time. This thing weeped like a whore in church once i sweated the brass/copper fittings on the heater core. Drove me nuts till i figured that heat shrink worked better on metal barbs than nylon tape.......thank the gawds i rebuild guitars as input jacks use the right size heat shrink for ½" barbs It took me repositioning everything in the loop for best temps to figure that one out though

All that and it's Blue too. So, untill my Cosworth performance engineered coolant arrives I'm going with Swiftechs' HydrX at $1.99x3(Zerox remixed with only god knows what). I'll get some new pics up shortly.

hey, everything looks good so far! I'm interested in this coolant. I've never heard of it, but where do you get it and how much does it cost? I like blue uv reactive fluids I do have some MCT40 coming today, but I'm not sure if I"ll use it as I realized that it is green and I'd really like blue... idk.

Well, I posted that in The what's in your loop thread. But if ya Google....oh hell here it goes..........Here and although it's free shipping they actually want like $8.00 handling so it's $17.45 all told. But it is shipped out New England so that's in your favor

that looks interesting. I'll have to look at it some more when I have more time. I like that idea, but being my first wc build I'm thinking I want some non-conductive stuff.

keep up the good work.

Yeah, I've got like 4 cooling options already purchased that haven't left the bottle, so, I'll let ya all know what makes me giggle the most. And you might ask CyberDruid if he used the Cosworth he bought before ya decide, as my system has yet to be connected.
