Well as i said in another thread it's long overdue but here we go <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">, pretty much covering this build from a closed loop CPU only to a complete custom loop.

This will be the most expensive and largest project/build i've ever attempted. And if my golf clubs sell i'll more than likely throw a second 780 classy in there <img alt="cheers.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/cheers.gif"><br><br>
It's to note this is my first build log as well, so it's not going to be as professional as some of the guys on here *cough* everyone *cough* lol It's also going to take me some time to get it together. It will be my next pay period before i can order the pump/res and maybe some cables and what i lack on my drainage valve.<br><br>
Here's what i have so far. Also have to complement Dragonhunter at EOCF on the sweet deal he gave me for his 780 classy with the block already installed. Thanks man :thumbup:

Just got done, thanks to waffles3680 for point out grabber green duplicolor. Could've done better at parts but overall i'm pleased, will on be able to see sections of the rings anyway.<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002071/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2002071" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002071/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002075/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2002075" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002075/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002082/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2002082" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2002082/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a>

That card/block combo is all kinds of sexy! Btw, I used that same exact paint on the calipers of my 1995 Ford Escort about 15 years ago haha. It lasted for 3 years in the notorious upstate New York tundra so it should definitely last on your fans! You'll have a sick build when it's all done.

Thanks man wish i would've actually put the block on the GPU, though i got it like that from a buddy on another forum. Gotta figure out how to clean it when everything comes in, guessing i'm just going to have to take it off and apart. Though i might just flush it.

I am by no means an expert but I bet you could just flush it, if you see anything after that, or it looks cloudy then disassemble it at that point. I'm amped to see how this build will turn out. I like green themes, especially when the green is contained and not too over done. I didn't want to do a black and red build but with my mobo having the red in it, I'll have to at least have touches of it here and there.

I'm amped as well. Apparently consulting with Mick and some others I can just flush with bicarb on the GPU block. And for the radiators vinegar + distilled, then bicarb mix, then distilled wash.<br><br><br>

Well apparently FedEx tried to deliver it at 9:30am this morning when i was asleep, so they're retrying tomorrow..who the heck delivers that early? Naturally i'm not going to be up considering i'm on 3-11pm all this week, but still i heard no doorbell or knock and i'm a light sleeper, this is annoying :/ should've went with UPS.

I am quite angry on your behalf! They probably wouldn't let you do a pickup until tomorrow even if you could get it today.

That sucks! 9:30 is pretty ridiculous.. <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif"> Hopefully you will get it tomorrow so we can all see <img alt="wheee.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies//wheee.gif">

Well it's a good thing my alarm was set because i had a knock on my door at 9:30 again. Here is most of it and a crap load of fittings hehe. I'm not sure i ever realized just how big a CPU block is..thing is huge.

Dude, the level of jealousy that I am feeling at this exact moment is quite painful. Listen, I'm coming over. It'll take me about 20 hours to get there but I think I can cut it down to 2 hours. <img alt="sonic.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/sonic.gif"><br><br>
Seriously though, congrats on the haul! I hope to follow suit soon. Take all of the pictures, Ron Swanson. In fact, you should hand carve your case. Really give it that Swanson feel.
