    I was always told, never put things where they dont belong, but this rad placement is an exception i think.

    Thanks Pete, I tried to get it in the case and is just wasn't going to happen so it went under it. Keeps it all nice and discrete as well.

    Just about to put it all together and I can't find any fittings

    Got loads of 1/2 compresions, no 3/8 and 7/16 tubing. All non compatible. I think the route I'll have to go is ti squash the 7/16 tube on to some 1/2 inch barbs.
    Oh well at lest I'll know that once that tubing goes on it ain't coming off ...lol

    Got all the barbs now, Just tested one they have some serious grip. Won't let go unless I slice the tubing.

    Looks like it's time to build a computer:dremel::dremel::dremel::dremel::dremel:

    I've been really busy lately but I have found some time to get started on the inside, mainly routing all the water cooling ..

    To start with I have a matching pair of these...Although the blocks have different logo's on them, they are identicle, both GPU's are factory over clocked, but I'll be giving them a bit more.

    So there you have it. A nice bit of progress.

    I just need to braid a few cables, get it all wired up and leak tested and I'm done.

    Probably be all finished with in the next few days.

    Thanks for looking :thumb:

    Well it's been leak tested now for a few hours and all seems ok, so it's time to start putting it all together.
