Thermaltake = No for water cooling, nothing but bad experiences and breaking parts.

Thats what I was told, anyway I recieved my MVR-40 so I figured Id look into it a bit and I found that the clamps wont fit. Do I NEED to use clamps?

If you're not going to leak, then no. But if your clamps and tubing are the same size, then you probably will.

Alright took me 2 days but I finally got it done. I had two leaks which were a pain to fix, a couple of screws broke on my MVR-40 which made me very upset. If someone could please recommend a program that will allow me to view the NB, SB, and mosfet temps I'll post those. I started with 3 blue LED Rosewill 200mm fans on my radiator but the LEDs were so bright they nullified the UV so I replaced them with 200mm black fans. I removed just about everything that emitted blue LED and it really brought out the UV reactive tubing. I made the tubing kind of long so I could squeeze a large video card underneath them I didn't want to lose that x16 slot.

if you're buying a new board, i recommend the 990fxa-gd80 (its basically a reboot of the 890fxa-gd70, but its new and shiny (and might get a waterblock in the future [fingers crossed])
