    About time to upgrade

    yes the existing tubing runs are ghetto but they were quickly done meant only to run through PAX East (NVIDIA had me put in Titans for the show).

    I am swapping out all the tubing and fittings for Primochill acrylic hard-lines (blue) and fittings (chrome)

    Installing EK CSQ blocks on EVGA 780s.

    Need to make an SLI bridge cover and wire management stuff with my 3d printer as well.

    Hey there, C - all is good. Finally doing a little bit of PC modding (very little - as in putting water blocks on and hooking up tubing), after a couple of years of busily enjoying life.)

    Sorry, DB, for the threadjack. Hope you and your family are well!

    Darth do you like the primo fittings? Been reading a lot about how they arent very sturdy and pull right out.

    Leak test produced two leaks. First was oring problem around the Primochill indicator (my bad). I broke a tub getting it off so I just make a new run there without the indicator (will use it for another project). Second one was down at the radiators. I used an inline temp sensor which also had a bad oring. all the other connections running well!








    This shows what will visible with door closed (HDDS not visible)
