    I bought something which is red coloured and I had to put it inside the fusion block . Is that the thing?

    News to me. I assume this done to pre-stress the base so that it becomes flat when installed?

    No, to bulge out the base so that it makes better contact with Intel's concave IHSes.

    Great job, I hope it runs nice and cool. That's quite a setup you have there and I find it quite funny that it says "What's a dremol" under your avatar lol. I think it should say "What a dremel to my uber mega shop of modding goodness?" Keep up the good work my friend.

    Shouldn't each of the three rads get their own air intake so that they aren't heating each other up?

    After I finished doing all the piping and installing of the hardware I decided to finally bang some lights in .I realised I still need to play around a little and get the right lights in order to get the right finish. Also I purchased a meter of the coloured tubing too and never used it but in the end it came to good use.

    As you can see I have too much lighting in there and some of it is the wrong kind. So I plan to order some small ones which are £2.99 or something more a less them lines.

    Temps on the CPU is 47c core temp. I remember before it was bout 60c on coretemp. I havent overclocked it yet will do tomorrow or so.

    I was going to use all three rads just for the CPu first and later buy blocks as I can afford it but then I breaked in to my piggy banfk and killed it all.
