So I have been waiting to do a few things over, I need to get rid of the tube that goes down after the pump so I stop trapping all the magic swirly bits in my fluid as well as redo all my bends and tubing. I have also been debating moving the vid card out of the vertical mount and I finally have a reason to do so. Last week, I ordered a res from Radikult - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3M...hnh9CJUh-TzNRw

Radikult makes reservoirs and other bits with his homebuilt CNC machine, I know a few around here have used them in the past. A little while ago, he started selling non-custom ones in standard sizes. I picked up one of his 280 size units with the integrated D5 mount. I was going to custom order a res and maybe more, but I left my job in September and am taking some time for myself before I start looking again. The res will be mounted in the top of the case.

Now the only thing I am waiting on is for Performance PCS to get the fluid I want back in again. Hopefully that won't be long.

I am also going to be picking up what I need to do some acrylic polishing as both the water blocks I have could use a bit of polishing and this Radikult res is unpolished inside.
I still have a bunch of painting I want to do as well, hopefully sometime this spring. Maybe by then I will be able to tackle the sleeving I want to do as well.

Seven months later, and I finally installed the Radikult res.



Oh, and I switched the light strip on the EK block, the white only one was in there originally and it never did work. I put in the RGB one and it runs off of the MB header just fine. Now just to do some tweaking of the wires for the Phanteks Halos and get them synced up with the other header that the EK block lights are hooked up to. Gigabyte ties the two headers together and you can't configure one and have the other one do anything correctly. Shouldn't be too hard to swap some pins around. Everything except the 12V, of course.

The bends were much improved this time around, I was more patient.
