    Subbed. Looks really good so far. Do you know how that old Cuplex block performs?

    Thank you Nutman. It's nice to hear that you like it.

    Well,I only run WC system on teble to test for leaks,but I belive it will provide decent cooling to my 2500k. Since I run it on 4,9 GHz with CM Hyper EVO with 68 C under load,I was hoping for at least 55 C under load at 5 GHz. :D

    That would be good for such an old block. But, of course, it also depends on the rest of the cooling system. If the radiator is good and paired with the right kind of fans, I think it should be possible. Let's see! :)

    I would agree with others, if that's the prototype... DANG, I can't wait to see this thing actually complete. Keep up the great work :thumb:

    Thank you. Your comments entertain me. :clap:

    Silicon is cool. :thumb:

    Yes,just a prototype-real thing will be slightli more better looking and more agressive.:D

    I plan to put metal tubes instead those nuts-I only have to find correct ID tube. ;)




    Thanky you very much,Abbas. :D

    Don't worry, update is comming in next days. It is not about case itself,but it is related to the project. :hip:

    Here is the promised update. ;)

    Fittings for raservoir finally came from ebay so I was able to assemble the whole thing for leak test and tmperature measuring-4 deegres bellow room temperature. But,unfortunately-I had to return to student home as my holidays were over and I wasn't been able to test system on components.

    Here you can see how pump is small-I compered it with plexi cover of reservoir.

    Enermax has become my new sponsor. I am very grateful on TB Vegas Trio fans for Scorpio and PSU Modu87+ for my next project. Special thanks to Benjamin S. for his effort.
