Old setup


Tear down of the old setup.


Modding the top of the case to fit dual fans above the radiator.


That's a lot better.


I love this Res!


Pump Is in.


Radiator is in.


First tube in.


While Waiting on block, I tested for leaks.

Its distilled water with a little of swiftech's anti-algae and anti-corrosive.

The thing is up and running, prime 95 for 3 hours, at 39 degrees. So much win

That will gunk them up too.

I would recommend using PT Nuke and a killcoil
