Just make sure everything is dry when you are ready to apply power, the distilled water or fluid will not harm the mother board in small amounts as long as you dry it off gently and reasonably quickly.
I have a nice pair for the job.

Damn I didn't even think of powering on the pump with everything mounted but no power to the PC. That is exactly what I will do.

I am going to forgo the bench setup and just make it work with my Antec 300. I will take out all the hardware and mount the block inside the case, then measure and make cuts and build it from there. Shouldn't be an issue at all.

I just couldn't invision building the loop on a bench. This way seems much better. Plus when I build it now I can bring my rig around instead of waiting for better case. Uhhh, anyone know a case that can fit a 480mm rad? I dont know of any other than DD or Mountain Mods..... those are way to big for what I am looking for.

All I need to do is Dremel out holes for my tubing if I wanted to put it in my case. Maybe I should just do it? What do you guys think?

I am thinking yes. Quick cut, will allow me to build it exactly to what I need. Instead of all this bench crap.
I did my build in this order:
Install PSU - rout wiring to where you think stuff is going to go
Install Blocks on components
Install MOBO with cpu and block on
Install everything as it would be finished minus tubing and coolant
Make sure everything fits as a "dry fit"
Then mark out holes on case for tubing if needed and cut them out
(You may need to remove stuff when cutting because of debris)
Put everything back
Measure out the tubing and install it

Make sure the tubing is on there good then start filling up, when you have as much coolant as you can get in there tilt the case while cycling the pump on/off in short bursts of about 10 seconds. Just keep doing that till its full. For the first 12-24 hours only have the pump running, nothing else incase a slow leak happens.

I use a pvc pipe cutter (inexpensive tool) to make clean cuts on the tube.

post #14 of 19
I used scissors, sharp ones.

Just cut quick and clean and you'll have a nice cut.

What wermad suggested are designed for such a thing though, so they're obviously better.

Looks like everyone here has you covered, if you have any more questions just clicky-click on the link in my sig

i just built my first watercooling setup a couple of days ago. All the parts came in the same day I and I got to it right away. I took my time and installed right in the pc and started running it.... no leaks, no testing been great since. Just take you time and don't overlook anything and you'll be fine.

One more.

Is your rad brand new? Flush it before install.

Alright guys.

With all the tips and taking my time. She's built. No leaks so far.

The only thing I need a bit of advice on is Air Bubbles/Bleeding. I need to shake my case to get the bubbles out? Like violently or gently?

I am assuming in between.

Let me know what your thoughts are. Last step.

She's up and running.

I get 58c loads @ 21x191 /w 1.3v. Very happy.

All I need now is a D5 Vario.
