    Nice. Looks like the water only flows through the black part of the block? Who is it made by?

    Glad to see you're pressing ahead with a new project! You're gonna have to expedite the Expedit pictures before you do anything else though ;-)

    Yes! its the new EK block! It is their picture aswell. I have not had time to take some of my own. Exams and stuff are in the way.

    I will proabably do the final pictures of the "Expedit" at the same time. But I can tell you she is up and running like a charm! Very quiet and does not seem to have issues with heat or anything like that. I have also put in 6hhds as well.

    Thanks mate

    Yes. It is the new ek one.

    Hello everyone! Time to update the build! Installed the final piece a few weeks ago, I just have not had the time to post and fix with all the pictures until now!

    Anyway, here they are!

    [​IMG]
    The new components! The motherboard block and a few more fittings!

    [​IMG]

    Looks very clean and nice.

    [​IMG]
    Started taring down the loop and unplugging stuff.

    [​IMG]
    The fluid seems to have been working fine, no visible residue left in the pipes etc.

    [​IMG]
    Still a lot of fine dust particles even with fan filters on all intakes. Some cleaning up is in order.

    [​IMG]
    I found one place where it had been leaking. Not enough to even drop but still visible. Found the perpetrator, you see that nick in the O-ring? That was the source of the leak. Replaced it and threw the old one away!

    [​IMG]
    Time to remove the old heatsink!

    [​IMG]
    As simple as undoing a few screws.

    [​IMG]
    Cleaned all the chips and put on the thermal pads.

    [​IMG]
    Done! It was really easy to install and I think it looks really good!

    [​IMG]
    Time to start putting everything back in place.

    [​IMG]
    Everything back in place! Water still a bit foggy though, it had small micro-bubbles left in it. It is all clear now though. Though a shame for the photos.


    Also, I have taken new pictures of the chassis since I was not a 100% pleased with the old ones. They will be coming soon (ish) and also a video hopefully.
