    vinegar works great for loosing the scale build up...... let it soak for an hour and just be sure to rinse it well b4 the re-install.
    I know from running a hard water salt water reef tank and the build up of calcium that builds up.... vin is the ticket :)

    Nice build, but I'M not to fond of Swiftech pump configuration with the inlet. it's not to friendly for clean lines. maybe they will get it right one day. Congrads on you new i7 build.

    You have to wash your radiator before you use it? Eh?

    Very nice water cooling setup Chicken. I love the Silver/Metal look with the case and those memory heatspreads. The lighting really makes the effect with the clear tubing. :toast:

    Agreed, I think the clear tubing makes it look even better. Who needs neon green coolant?! Of course like Fit said, it would have gotten icky quick if you didnt flush the rad. I dont know much about water cooling at all whatsoever, but I do know that you got to flush it immediately so that flux and crap doesnt build up in the tubes. :toast:

    Nice build ..I like it :)

    And the temps should be even better when you fix the block orientation.Yeah and I agree that sometimes the distilled water that you buy bottled is not the best anyway...makes me wonder is it just tap water anyway.

    yeah bro for having nothing UV it looks darn good I think :D. Any how, i already flushed the rad how FIT told me but it looks the same, this water is just I dont know, :confused:

    I already fixed the block orientation and the temps stayed the same idle and load. Guess the rad was taking care of the situation :D.

    Thanks dude :toast:

    thank you bro, it'll look better shortly, still need to order a few things, uv dye for example, and uv lights. Shorter tubing and re route my tubing a bit better. I'll keep you guys posted.

    What was the last time you built a water cooled rig? Got any pics you mind sharing?

    thats pretty good bro, thats a thermal take res right?

    Anyhow, I am ordering uv dye, but its going to blue, I had green before so want to try blue, should look very nice IMO. However if I dont like, I can always flush and use another color :D

    yep Thermaltake everything. Kandaulf case and Bigwater 745 Kit.
    back then I cannot get my hands on anything else unless i order from the states, which was way out of my budget.

    Blue is too overly done. Do up some red...

    Speaking of which, if I go watercooling I am going to have one hell of a time trying to find UV Orange.
