    Awesome! :rockout:

    I wish I had the funds and the time necessary to do something similar. I'm sure that with the hardware you have you'll be able to oc further and get some impressive benching and gaming fps results!:toast:

    [Btw your title was a bit misleading, for me at least, lol at first I thought you had set up a rig in your bathroom..... lol sorry I couldn't help it!]:p

    Gaming in the water closet, the toilet tank is your resovoir, the flush changes your coolant.

    I take it that's sneeky's old setup, right? Glad to have you join the ranks of Water Cooled rigs. I did a couple of weeks ago, and I'll never look back. My advice though is to really take your time when you set it up the first time, and triple check for leaks for like an hour after you set it up, with paper towels in hand.

    Good decision on the tape. I'm using teflon tape on all of my barbs.

    Blow it all out with canned air, then clean with rubbing alcohol.

    To clean old dirty fans,, I scrub them with soap or toothpaste using an old toothbrush,, then rinse them off in the shower, Blow then off with air & WOW there new again. No joke
