    Be sure to read the eVGA forums about the quirks of the Classified. You have to give it some TLC to make it work it's hardest for you ;)

    Sweet mod so far, I'll definitely follow this one

    Ok a few little upadtes on my build.

    I thought i would test my rad to make sure i didnt puncture anything when i replaced the carbon panel rivets with screws and to test my fittings incase they leak and im very happy to say no leaks at all.

    Ive not bothered to braid the rad fans as im not sure if i will be keeping these,i have found some good sharkoon`s that i`ll need to try out.


    New Koolance 3.25 DDC fitted with XSPC res top

    Looking really good. :thumb:Those Bitspower fittings are lovely. Are you using white or black tubing - seems to have been swapped round?

    Only got the spare black hose on for now as the rads filled with water to test it working with the pump.

    Nice temps but I have to say that personally I am not happy with the plumbing, something about it just doesn't look right to me IMO. It's the lead going from the CPU block to the NB block, either face the fitting on the NB block towards the CPU block (not towards the PCI slots like you have done) or ditch those fittings and use normal compression fittings, it just looks abnormal. Just my 2 cents.
