    So The Baby Grand is almost complete.
    Still have a few bits to do:
    1) Replace mobo block with an EK one.
    2) Clean out loop and re-fill
    3) Different fan controller
    4) Other bits and pieces

    So got a few good pics done for now :)
    Warning pic HEAVY!

    Then because of adding in an extra card, we needed to re-do some of the loop.

    So nice long run that looks a little nicer and tucked further to the back of the desk.

    Replacing the Mobo block that came with the VI Formula as it was causing corruption.

    So it will be like this for the next 24 hours.

    So after doing a thorough cleaning.
    Drained original pastel out.
    Pushed some DI water through.
    Ran Blitz cleaning for 14 hours or so.
    Took off CPU block, cleaned with toothbrush.
    Ran new pipework.
    Cleaned with Blitz again for another 24 hours.
    Ran DI water through for about an hour.
    Drained and repeated for 3 times total.
    Then filled up and ready to go! (There goes the weekend!)

    Filled up with DI, now adding in dye

    I use a mouse pad for the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless.

    But the Logitech MX works fine on glass, but I dont really use that one.
    That mouse was for my laptop.

    The SteelSeries is ace tho.

    So 20/10/2015 I've done a whole refresh of just about everything :D

    Basically what happened was my PSU died so at first I wasn't sure what it was.
    I managed to get hold of some DDR4 from Corsair, and a new PSU.

    So I decided to take the time to re-do some of the pipes and include a drainage port, as the one at the top was obviously too high up.

    So got a new mobo (VIII Hero Z170) new cpu (i7 6700K) and new GPU's (2x Titan X's).

    So its time to go to work and re-build!
