    I received the CPU and finished the loop but discovered that the pump was vibrating too much and made too much noise and when I booted the SSD was fried... So now I have to buy a new SSD and a pump/res... A little bump in the road ;)

    If the SSD was fried when you got it, warranty should still apply unless you did something naughty....:nono: Hope you can get a new one.

    Looks good. The white coolant brings it together nicely.

    Sorry I haven't responded earlier. The fault was mine on frying that SSD and it was the one I used to begin with in my Autobot Skids rig but it was always making some problems so it's actually a kind of relief ;)

    I'm not gonna tell you how I fried it though so I won't look like a total noob LOL

    Well, i am just hoping my system survive my installment of my watercooling.. But yeah I think the work and mod are coming together very nicely:)

    What SSD are we talking about? And which pump??

    Oh, don't blame yourself, the OCZ vertrex 3 seems like one of the least reliable drives out there. Or OCZ in particular isn't the most reliable manufacturer ;)

    I have used a few OCZ products and I've only had bad experience with them :/ I hear their PSU's are pretty good but I have never tried one... I am gonna try the Samsung 840 SSD and I've been looking at some new manufacturer for my next project...

    Just luck of the draw it seems. My OCZ Agility 3 had been going strong for over a year, died the day before I was due to replace it. The worst part is that the Samsung 840 pro which I ordered was DoA too! The odds of those two events occurring at the same time must have been pretty low to say the least.

    The Vertex 4 marks OCZ's SSD quality turning around.
    The Vertex 4 is currently the best SSD in the lower price bracket, with the 840 Pro being the best before shelling out obscene amounts of money on a PCI-e SSD.

    OCZ has ruined their reputation for me personally... Not gonna use their products in any near future :)
