    Hey, I used the edges of the pcb for holding too. With 25% of their contestants not following that rule, I think they will have to make a concession.

    I think the project is so fantastic that it really doesn't matter, I'm guessing that like most it's not about the competition but just for the hell of it, I'm more worried about the deadline, you seriously need a good ass kicking if you don't complete this :hehe::hehe::hehe:

    ----------------------FILLING THE LOOP-------------------------

    Here is alittle video of me filling the loop with the pink coolant, I used a syringe to fill the loop through the filler port next to the pumps inlet feed.

    --------------------------------The Golden Watercooled Raspberry Pi--------------------------------

    Well here it is.
    This is sadly the end of Project 'The Wet Pi', it has be a fantastic opportunity for me to utilize the skills and machinery I luckily have at my disposal.
    I would like to thank you all for your encouragement and thoughts throughout this build.

    Here is the link to the video I quickly did filling the loop.

    I did the photoshoot after I had but filled the loop so its alittle hard to make out the engraving.
    Here is a photo after it was left for a few hours.

    I have to say I've been hugely impressed with all the projects - there's me thinking no one would enter! Very chuffed with the response and the dedication. Voting will begin in a couple of days!!!

    Nice work. I think a size reference photo next to a coke can or the like is required!

    Good job, buddy!
