    That's such a sick setup. Big props go to you for creating something really unique.

    On the GPU? :D

    Run the GPU block as the last pass before the radiator? If Ive read up thoroughly enough in my time that might be correct. If not, I apologise and shal leave the H20 advice to the experts.

    Glad to hear it worked out for ya. the Barbs do look extra shiny. :toast:


    I think you should add that gpu line.. But, if you do.. is it going to be via one big loop, or will you add a rad in the mix to even out the cooling factor?

    make the GPU the very last thing in the loop because its the hottest, the water will eventually get to one temp and stay that way so everything will be within a few degrees from each other but it will be cooler if the hottest device is at the end of the loop closest to going into the rad

    Nice, did you tap those yourself? What about a top? I have the EK tops on mine and they are a bit blockly but still sexy.

    Might have been smart to take it off the bracket before shaving off the barbs, but it looks good! I think it would look even better if you painted the bracket silver to match the barbs!
