    You can wipe some of it off with a clean finger, then rub it on a plain white piece of paper. Should be able to tell at that point if it's watery or oil.

    Must not have been water, otherwise it would have evaporated by now. I just tried that. Turned the paper a bit clear, which proves it should be oil.

    Actually there are five different fans, there is one is the front also. I know they aren't perfect, but they get the job done.

    Fixed

    I used GC-extreme a few years ago and got excellent results when compared to AS5 and MX-2. Good stuff! :D


    I like the large res pics so I zoom in and check out the hidden details of other builds, especially cable management skills. Though I am usually browsing TPU at home on my 32" monitor. I could see big pic uploads being a pain when browsing from a phone or tablet.

    I have no complaints, although in my CoolerMaster Silencio 550 card with a blow out cooler would be a better choice. GPU and SSD are going to be my next upgrades. :toast:

    SSD is a legit choice for upgrades, I owned 2 GTX 570's (gainward) and they were pretty baller. They're still running like champs in my friends machine at 975mhz core.

    My XSPC RX240 kit got here today and I have a CM692 coming probably Wednesday or Thursday, so my 3930k rig is going to see a pretty big transformation come this weekend :toast:

    Pics or it didn't happen :p

    Did you go through NewEgg for the 20% discount on the case ;)

    P.S> Keep a close watch on all of the barb fittings.... from what I've heard they tend to loosen and leak fairly easily!

    Wait, like, just spontaneously loosen? I didn't see that anywhere :eek:
    Source? :eek:
    I'll make sure to get them extra-tight with pliers.

    Pics tomorrow--too busy tonight :(

    And yes, case is from Newegg, $80 including shipping :toast:

    I expect to have time on Thursday night to assemble the loop and do leak-testing, and then actually WC the system Friday afternoon.
