    My board has a unique pin setup slot thingy for it, so I doubt it.

    In other news...I had teh leakzz!! I mounted the acrylic pieces on the GPU block upside down<<stupid, and the radiator fittings were leaking. In other, other news..the loop is being bled right now.

    Yea, letting my GPU dry for as long as I can stand without running the machine before putting power through it. I have a fan on it while the loop is being bled.

    I realized these aren't the correct ones...of course, after I opened every package. I'll contact Newegg and see if they'll do anything about it, if not, too bad. I did order 12 of the correct splitters from Mountain Mods, though

    No, I need the 2 connectors of the Y to be the pins sticking out head, and the 1 to be the same as what's on the fans. This way I can actually hook them up to my fan controller.

    Also found out that the pump outlet is what I was using as an inlet..so I have to drain yet again.

    I bought caulk today to seal the bottom 2 fittings on the radiator. You can't see it from the outside and I didn't wanna strip it down yet again.

    Good news, the 5870 is alive after taking on some water!! Posting this from the main rig now! It's not picture worthy yet, however, there's still a leak I need to fix and until I do, the power supply is sitting on the top of the case.

    A bad o-ring on a fitting on the radiator is most likely, I may end up having to drain the loop part way then roll it so it sits on the front panel and drys then put my caulk on.

    Thanks, got a PM from a dude on XS saying I have the CPU block mounted incorrectly so I'll get around to moving the springs to the top of the plate later.

    No, the leak is still pulling one on me I believe, either that or I'm still bleeding the loop. The res level hasn't dropped too much in a while, so we'll see after a 4 hour cod session I have coming up!

    >>>Heading to the WPrime thread now.

    Bitchin' job. Sorry to hear about your leak.

    What is the advantage of the D5 top for the 655, other than looks and being able to use different fittings? I have been looking at one of those, myself.

    It increases flow, but decreases head pressure. Obviously, I needed flow and different sized fittings.

    I can't find water, but I'm also scared to move the radiators around too much, and the level in the reservoir hasn't dropped in about 8 hours, so I think it sealed itself up! I'll be moving the power supply to the inside of the case now and start doing the finishing touches.

    You prolly won't be seeing any updates, I heard he was banned from things he said in a private argument with a moderator.

    That's a disappointment. I was enjoying this build log.
