    New tubing, some cleaning and it would be good as new.

    some cleaning would go a long way and pulling the tubes off and cleaning them would help too if you didn't get new.

    What are we using as coolant these days? That is just straight distilled water and has been in there for a long time so not surprised it is a bit on the green side.:laugh:

    Nope.... The black ones are black but the others are supposed to be clear. I guess if you neglect to change the water in your loop for a long time this happens......:)

    I figured as much. That's why I ran dexcool in mine. No discoloration after ignoring it for two years.

    My X58 is just a cruncher, but yes, it's still very solid. With a SSD, a modern GPU, and more than 2GB of RAM, it could run nearly anything :toast:

    I actually didn't end up sticking with the OC Formula. Ran into a couple of issues with my Xonar DX and Seagate Backup Plus 3TB. Returned it, and sticking with my Z68 gear for now. I'm unfortunately working too many hours per week to be able to play around with hardware that doesn't work flawlessly. Otherwise, I would highly consider grabbing it.

    Haven't touched her in a few months so I decided to give her some TLC. Switced to the raystorm block, dusted it out a little, changed from white to clear tubing and switched the 7950's to pcie slots 2 and 4 so they both run at x16.
