    Unplanned memory arrived. 2x2GB G.Skill DDR3 1600MHz CL6 1.65v :D
    [​IMG]

    Did more cable management, fixed kinked tube, leveled the res/pump, installed memory, and finally decided on loop path.
    Since temps don't change for crap when the routing is changed, I'm going with the simplest and cleanest route.
    [​IMG]

    Few more days to go and the loop will be running. Also, 24 pin PSU cable should be sleeved by then if everything arrives on time. :)

    looking good. Can't wait to see it all going!

    Plus, the pump/res combo is making me think of one myself. Hope it all works good for ya.

    I love to waste tubing figuring out a setup that works... lol
    [​IMG]

    This was the result, I call it.... the " HORSE SHOE ".
    [​IMG]
    Any other orientation caused kinks, bad ones. The " HORSE SHOE " was the best solution with what I had.

    I forgot to post a shot of the cable management on the backside, here it is.
    [​IMG]

    Waiting for the 8" 24 pin PSU cable extension to arrive so I can sleeve it up and make it pretty. Other than that, just the 5770 is the only thing I'm waiting on. Hopefully Kantastic got it mailed out today so maybe it might arrive before the weekend.

    When even the cable management is clean, it's pure win. Nice work. I likes the horseshoe; hope it's lucky for you. :p

    that southbridge is in an extremely inopportune spot if you ever go dual card.

    Sure is :(. But believe it or not, a second card would fit, routing tubing would require some angled fittings for sure.

    8 inch 24 pin cable arrived. Came with two white ends, replaced motherboard end with a black one. I was planning on sleeving it, but to my surprised it arrived in all black wiring. No sense in wasting sleeving...

    Thanks Cold, I can't wait to finish this damn build!!!! I'm so anxious I might hook up the GPU block and do leak testing now. It won't be too hard to put the block on the card since all the screws go on the top. Argh.... I hate waiting!

    nope.. got a i5 750 and evga p55 FTW for $300 shipped to me.. So, it was something I couldn't say no to.. lol.. Plus, I didn't like how the water loop looked with that board...

    Now, if they got a full block to the FTW, I'd do it again! :rockout:
