    Yup sure is, still going strong despite several rebuilds. Currently keeping my i5@4.3 nice and cool, never see it hit 70 while gaming:D

    Double distilled water from Sortlifeout, bactericide, silver coils (home made coils using silver wire)

    I'm using clear EK coolant and white tubing from Masterkleer. Just installed my new Titan and and well happy with how it all looks. Tis a nice fit in my TJ08.

    Nice looking loop Chris - OT how do you like the all nickel Supremacy? I'm going to be in need of one soon to match a nickel full cover block if I can't find an EK block for my old X58 board. Also what did you think of the rotary monsoons? I might use those in my next loop too if the quality is high and they're as reliable as BP rotaries.

    I'm very pleased with the Supremacy but if you remove the top, getting the o-ring back in place is a bit fiddly. I previously had a Supreme (now gathering dust) and the supremacy appears to be a couple of degrees cooler.

    As for the Monsoons, I love them. I haven't had a problem at all with them. As long as you are careful with the tool for tightening them they work a treat - look great too.

    I heard that the Nickel Supremacy was just the Supreme HF Full Ni with a redesigned top.

    Not that it's a bad thing - the Supreme HF is a great block.

    Have you compared the insides of the two? I'd be interested to know if the rumour was true or not.

    New setup: Mayhems Ultra Pure H20, and 25ml of Feser One Corrosion blocker. Think I'm going to go back to premixed again when the window finally gets released for the DS1.

    Tom - that new build looks epic! Slightly OT - what made you choose the Deep Silence over the Fractal XL?

    I haven't to be honest, but as I only opened up the Supremacy last night I can remember what it looked like. I'll try and dig out the Supreme tonight and check out the difference.

    @Parge - Nice looking system, very neat and tidy.

    Thanks :thumbup: took me a while to find a yellow that was not either to translucent or a little greenish or orangish.

    Has a silver coil in the loop too. And matches my viper fans and replaced case LEDs exactly (all yellow).

    Well it was a tossup between the two. In the end I couldn't get my hands on the Fractal XL, but in hindsight that was probably a good thing as the DS1 really is a joy to build in, and does everything you could ask of a case. I took pics all the way through the build, so I'll have a full build log up soon!

    Buy the Carplan stuff from Asda/Sainsburys/Tesco etc for half the price! I use that and a spot of Redex - generally works alright, although I do get a bit of sludge.

    Excellent - looking forward to it! I'd like an XL to match my R4, but I do like the DS1!

    PS Thanks to whoever fixed up my mess...

    Got a picture of your old 1366 setup in the 800D. I've got a few others if you want them, including one with the fan just placed on top of the 8800's cooler :p
    (Terrible quality, I know)

    As for my own coolant, I'm in the deionized water group.

    Wow, just saw this, amazing yellow, it's so bright! Bet it would look ace in a res! Got any pics?

    Sweet setup CW. Is that a 180 in push then a 120 in pull? How are your titans temps?
