Ok, I'm just trying to see how long it actually has taken everyone to install their H2O.<br />
<br />
From the point of cracking open the case for the first time, until it's done...(maybe a little not of how long you leak tested as well).<br />
<br />
<br />
I figure maybe if someone is new to this water cooling idea, then it may help them to better prepare for the time it will take them..=)

your probably going to get a huge spectrum of times because every rig is different and some people took there time on it while others didn't..<br />
<br />
my rig is kinda standard with just a cpu RBX block, 2x 120 rad, D5 pump, reservoir and some new fans for the rad. I took me about 15 hours in the course of 2 and a half days from the second I picked up the screwdriver and drill to the point I turned the Rig on.

It took me about 3 hours to install everything. I didn't leak test. I don't like tests <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Keep it G-rated folks.<br />

Usually takes me well over 3 hours to set my stuff up- Especially with a T-line.

Since I have to remove the mobo for my Stinger WB's, around 2½ to 3 hours,<br />
not including the 72hr leak test.

A few hours depending on what needs to be done. Yesterday I cleaned out my dirty case with the air compressor, threw in a new CPU+mobo+RAM, remounted my side intake fan, reseated my CPU block, cut tubing & rearranged my res, and refilled my loop.... took maybe 2-3 hours.

I'd say 2-3 hours is about normal for a custom setup.
