Okay, so I actually more or less completed everything before I left for vacation several weeks ago. I wrote this on vacation but didn't have pictures but am adding them now, I just didn't have a chance to document and post it here. So without further ado, let's get started!

So my first build was quite a success in my opinion. No leaks and decent temps which came about as good as high end air or better... But I couldn't stop there and as many of you know water cooling and pc modding never ends.... And thus my very own Orange Box was born.
First I would like to thank ira-k for his continued support on anything and everything, martin for his help on my fuzion and the back plate, and POOK for the wonderful orange juice goodness!!
So let's start from the begining.
120mm Scythe Ultra Kaze Medium Speed
120mm Yate Loons
D-tek Nozzle Kit
Here is the order from jab-tech.
And the orange sharpie tank highlighters from Staples.
And my temporary brand new Cooler Master RC-690 which I probably spent a little longer than I wanted installing just to make it look tidy
And the big chunky behemoth of a heatsink the Cooler Master GeminII with a Yate Loon D12SL 120mm Fan (I forgot how massive these things had gotten when I switched to a fuzion).
Completed Transfer to the RC-690. Only ran the Geminii with 1 loon and it got kinda toasty.
Making the orange juice
That's one nasty bend on the pump.
Draining the old loop. Primochill Liquid Utopia really stains the tubing.
GTX360 Showing the Fans all connected
Connected Tubing (damn the mcp655 is still a pain to get on with 7/16" ID Tubing but, really really hot water, TONS of patience, and a few more than a few curse words later it's on.
Filling the Loop
At the time, and it still does even more so, it looks so tempting to drink. mmm but then I must resist other wise it'd be empty box.
Tidying up the cables took some time but I have to say it was QUITE worth it. This is THE cleanest build I have ever done and I pretty much sleeved/heatshrunk everything that shows. Somethings to note, for the SATA Power Cables on the HDD and 2 DVD Burners I used Molex to SATA Power Connectors because it saved me space and I could manage using just 1 Molex strand for my modular power supply.
Here is the final product:
