    Did a wrench come with those monsoon fittings? Maybe they only send them with the six pack. But its like a dollar for the little wrench by itself, maybe you can add it to be sent with ur other fitting or something, cuz it would be pretty tough to put those together without it. Unless you got some kinda crazy kung fu grip lol

    I love the color of that tubing, but you probably hear that from all sorts of fellas;)

    I may have to switch to that style next time I upgrade, damn I hope it's sooner than later.

    Nice job so far:toast:

    Thanks Alex. you are actually the first one to comment the tubing. I like it too, it is very clear. Not like my other tubing I had before.

    I use Primochill tubing in my system as well, but I think it's the older style. Yours does look pretty good though.

    Yep, just used my man hands!

    Yeah this is the Advanced LRT stuff. Tends to be harder, not as soft, as other tubing, but it looks nice, and still bends really well.

    It doesn't look brown unless there's a camera flash involved. Don't bother upgrading anything, wait for Haswell-E.

    Yeah I saw stuff on Haswell-E. I will probably just clock my 2500k as far as possible and wait it out. I won't be making enough money over the summer anyways anymore.

    But im basically done now. Just need to get that other fittings since it didn't come today like it was suppose to. Then I can get the other tubes connected, filler up, bleed, and play.

    Got bored, and didn't want to wait to do a bit more work with the tubing. so went ahead and did the T-line with the drain port. Decided id just have the drain port go straight down rather than behind the motherboard tray. Should still look good.

    [​IMG]

    Enzotech 3/8th ID drain plug. Yes the tubing for the drain line right off the T Line is 3/8th ID by 5/8OD. So same outside diameter as the tubing for the rest of the loop, but different inside, since Enzotech didn't have a 7/16" ID drain plug.

    Pretty much done now. Have all the cabling done, except for the pump so that I can do bleed tests with my test power supply I have. Unfortunately that other fitting I was waiting for didn't come yesterday. So I have to wait till Monday after I get home from work to finish up. I just have one more tube to connect.

    Waiting for some small part....the worst part of water cooling (I mean outside of the obvious-and uncommon-disasters like a huge leak).

    Looking good.

    Maybe, but probably not. I like the way the blue looks with all the chrome and nickel.

    Well obviously the side panels and front panel need to go back one which they already are.
