    hey pete, very nice job on the build :thumb:

    any chance of a picture of the white acetal cover (both sides) before it was attached? mainly wondering if it is milled on the other side, or just smooth.

    so the gasket is on the block, not the acetal? sorry for the questions, just weighing the possibility of making my own block top when the time comes.

    great read :rock: , been looking into doing water-cooling when i build my rig in the next couple months. My thoughts keep coming back to the fittings. Do you have any insight on why the cost of compression fittings are so different between bits power fittings and ones like yours.

    The quality really, Bits power ones are of a much higher quality that the ones I have, not that the ones I have are bad at all. They do the job just fine :) So it all depends on your budget, if you can afford to blow money on the Bits Power fittings go for them, otherwise the ones that I used will be fine.
