Did all that crud come from a brand new rad?!?!?!?

I've rolled mine around on the floor and I never experienced any problems? I even built up my rig on the carpet.

Static is only an issue in certain areas. Here in Florida, only cold dry winter time and carpet is when you have to worry about it.

Honestly, you don't even need clamps if you run 7/16 ID tubing over 1/2 OD barbs. I installed my tubing and tried to pull it off the barb, and it would not budge. The tubing creates a tight seal around the barb.

Also, the AP-15's are much quieter than the stock fans. There is no other conclusion.

My Primochill clear tubing also discolored after a month of use. Replaced it with Primochill UV Blue. When I installed the blue tubing, I soaked it in hot water for 30 minutes to get rid of any contaminants, then flushed it with distilled water prior to install. Maybe this will prevent the discoloration that occurred with my clear tubing.

Clean out your rads with hot water and distilled water. Then flush them out with at least half a gallon of distilled water.

I wonder why most of you are installing the rad with the fittings toward the rear of the case? That makes for a longer run of tubing.

And as far as making my kit look "uber fancy" and the fittings not being for performance, I would just rather get everything all in one whack than get the kit installed.. tear it apart a couple weeks later, and again.. seems tedious to me when I could've gotten it all done at once. And yeah, I should just get some of these, eh?

Dang, I like the looks of that full chipset cooler. Not as much as the stock one but that tiny little fan is annoying as all hell and it doesnt seem to do much good. I might look into that since my NB is around 50c just at an idle

Ok... got bored. Looked at the color scheme of my Jeep. Gold & black. Decided it was time to test and I came up with this (which I like and will continue to finish!):

Thanks on both counts...

I did too. Didn't even think abut it until I was washing the Jeep and realized that Gold and black look nice together... so I took that front panel off to give it a whirl. Liked the results so I will take the top panel and paint it as well. Rest of case will remain black.

Interior will be all hammered black except for the mobo tray and the hdd rack which will be gold hammered. Then... I will be adding some accent lighting (red LED's or EL tape) under the outer edges of the mobo tray to see how that goes.

I installed my XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 into my sig rig but instead of using the 240mmrad i had to use a RS120 rad as i couldn't get the 240mm inside my case or work out the back mounting bracket (Lol).
I'm not overclock just running F@H Room temp is 26c my highest core temp is 48c-50c Is this normal?
As this is my first loop im not 100% sure.
Also how full should my Res be? i have around 1cm gap on the top where air is.
