My Water Cooling Project!

Started this moring finished about 8! Sorry for the lack of pictures i got carried away and totaly forgot to take them!



^^^^ Taking it apart... always the easybit lol



^^^^ I sealed each barb with sealing tape and an Oring



^^^^ CPU cooler on!



^^^^ Nice snug fit!



^^^^ I lost track straight after putting the CPU cooler on so BOOM done lol



^^^^ Nice blue glow

Hope u like it sadly the rad was full of dust so the liquid doesnt glow as it would I will change the fluid soon

Oh dear, someone didn't do their homework! You needed to soak your rad in vinegar and flush it out... It's not dust in there. YOu need to empty your loop and clean everything, flush the rad properly mate.

Very nice case, quality gfx too, tidy loop too

I saw alot of dirty liquid when i first started the loop its cleared now tho, not glowing as much as it should under UV tho. Will it damage anything? and do i have to take it allll apart clean everything and start again?

For the UV fluid I'd just add some more

You should flush the RAD out, but only for the reason that it may have had a few spare bits of copper from the manufacturing process still in it which could damage the pump. No Vinegar required, just use de-ionised water

If it's a RoSH Compliant rad it should hopefully be manufactured using water soluble flux, which means all you need to flush it with is hot water. I strongly advise against using vinegar to clean radiators with. Contact the manufacturer of your radiator and find out...

Watch me get angry about it...!

As you know, when I joined this time last year I knew nothing. At that time I used the stickies on this forum and others. Here it clearly states to use vinegar, which I did on my BI. For some reason or other that has always stuck in my head. I stand corrected.

Perhaps that guide should be re-written/edited, I'm sure Marci can add some of his wealth of knowledge?
