Feser is fine. Anyone who says otherwise has never used it. I have used many different colors on many systems without a single problem, and no buildup to speak of. rolleyes.gif

You could also take a small amount of grease and rub down the gasket with two fingers. Just take a small cloth and wipe it down before you reinstall it so nothing gets into your loop.wink.gif

Ask Fat_Italian_Stallion, he has used Feser UV Blue liquid and it did degrade (as every premixed stuff does).

Anomalies do happen. My 5+ systems using it tell a story...wink.gif

Well like most of us, I intended on playing some DC Universe but the bug has bitten me and bitten me good, I couldn't pull myself away from working on this so.....I started mounting waterblocks on the motherboard

AZZASolanoWCbuild001-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild002-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild003.jpg

Here is my first tube put in....but because of the bend I believe I'm going to have to go CPU -> SB ->NB....there's just no way to get this bend without hampering flow...
AZZASolanoWCbuild004.jpg
Thanks for pointing that out Mr. Raisin....I wouldn't have noticed it...

Well I'm going to bed finally....I'm seriously thinking about not watercooling the southbridge, problem is watercooling the southbridge makes me have to loop over the video card with a tube and makes things ugly for future video card upgrades etc....plus it will just look weird with a tube looping over a video card and with both video cards tied together and watercooled also....plus taking one block out of my loop will improve flow, and will also take out one heat source in my cpu loop.......

Well a few more pictures for today so far, and a couple of updates.

First off....I've decided no WC block on the South bridge....was going to make me have a really funky loop around my video card etc...and being the SB doesn't do much, and shouldn't heat up too much anyways it gets the factory heatsink back on it...
AZZASolanoWCbuild008-1.jpg
While trying to make this decision, I just kept thinking that making it simple was the best reasoning ever....one because I wouldn't have to worry about the tube going around the video card being long enough etc for future upgrades etc...secondly there's some nice fan coolers for the SB out there and when I have the extra money to throw at it.....I might get one....but still money probably wasted cus come on it's the SB.....probably end up spending that money on fans for my rads not on the SB fan....LOL
AZZASolanoWCbuild007.jpg

Next I tackled my first part of my loop from the CPU to the NB until I was happy with the bend of the tubing etc. I just didn't want the tube to flatten out so much as it was before, so I added a 45 angle to the CPU block and everything got cozy after that....
AZZASolanoWCbuild009-1.jpg

I also buttoned up my GPU waterblocks and mounted them correctly to my cards, new thermal paste, new thermal tape, lubed the rubber gasket etc...and now they look pretty snazzy....(ignore the finger smudges plz...lol)
AZZASolanoWCbuild010-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild011-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild013-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild014-1.jpg

Then also today I got my last box for the build (atleast I hope I don't have to get anything else), I received my other Swiftech dual 120mm rad. Was happy to see it, but after opening the box was kinda disappointed....who at swiftech decided to change over to matte finish, instead of the polished finish like my other rad....oh well chance I guess you take when you buy things a year or more apart....
AZZASolanoWCbuild015-1.jpg
AZZASolanoWCbuild016-1.jpg

So tonight not going to get to spend much time on it....tho I want to try to get the rad mounted in the front and get the motherboard in the case also....then I'll worry about the rest tomorrow...

I'm still considering running that Feser One coolant, but is there any algicide products you can run in your loop with it? Or do you not have to since it's a chemical coolant anyways? Also on my other loop I'm going to run just distilled water, and been reading that I need to put a biocide in with the distilled water...and was also reading on another thread that someone was using a pool additive, which I have some also, but mine is the BAQUACIL brand, going to go see what the active ingrediants are, but I wonder if this would be safe also to run in that pure distilled loop.....I won't add it to the Feser Loop, my luck it would turn into a volcano from a 4th grade science project....
