    That's the small metal 'peg' motor that is brushing against things, like dustfilters and such.

    I think I have to get just a few very small LEDs to put in the case. Blue and red ones that is. The light belong to my Level 10 GT's fan controller...

    I hate those tiny air bubbles. No way to get rid of them manually other than to just let it bleed out of your system for a couple hours.

    My photo was apparently posted to BitFenix's facebook /selfpat.

    I actually considered the Apogee HD for its multiple inlets/outlets, but in the end I chose to get a reservoir with multiple inlets/outlets instead.

    Alright cheers.

    Quick other question, if my PSU only comes with 3x 4pin cables, what do I do if I want to put 4 CM fans in a case?

    Get a 4-pin molex Y-splitter or get some 3->4-pin molex adapter and use them with your motherboard headers.

    Like this?


    EDIT: No wait, it has to be the other way around, doesn't it?

    I like the bubbles :> Almost like you had soda in your loop.

    By the way, looks magnificent already Drunken! And will be even better as you get your new(?) card in it. Am I picturing things though or do I see a slight tint on that hose coming from the reservoir?

    It's clear/UV blue hose. It also appears to show off its color quite nicely when exposed to a certain amount of sunlight.

    Hmm, wrong selection of words. I meant kink, not tint Like when you bend the hose at a slightly too rough angle and it loses it's shape.

    And now that you mentioned the tint, the colour looks slightly blueish which adds some nice contrast I think.

    There aren't any kinks. But the hose you're mentioning is as short as it would allow me. It would continuously kink when I tried to do a shorter one...

    Yeah, there's no kinks...just a little bit of warping...Not a big deal and only amounts to a fraction of a degree difference in a loop. What kind of hose are you using...PrimoFlex seems to have the lowest bend radius without kinking. Is that also 3/8" ID 5/8" OD tubing? I know the thicker 3/4" tubing tends to kink more.

    I'm surprised your bubbles haven't disappeared after 24 hours. Is your loop filled to the brim with liquid?

    Warping? o.o Dem tubes aren't warped...
    And it's filled as far as the res would allow. Tried adding a wii bit more, but the res wouldn't come back on without basically overflowing those few drops off the side. -.-

    Beyond that, I think they'll disappear over time as I let the system rock about. The rest of the system is free of bubbles, far as I'm aware, but those bastards in the res just won't go anywhere, for better or worse.

    Cooler: Zalman 9700

    GPU: MSI Twin Frozer 560ti 2GB
    PSU: Corsair TX650 V2
    HDD: 1TB WD Caviar Black + 128GB Crucial M4

    as I was coming from a mac I did need some new peripherals:

    Monitor: Dell ?? (Gave wife the Dell ST2320L and stole her old one will probably be getting my own 2320L soon)
    Keyboard: Logitech K360
    Mouse: Steelseries MMO Cata mouse
    Speakers: Logitech S220 2.1
    Headset: JVC HA-RX700 (thank you Marest for the cheap recomendation, Amazon was also having a sale) + Zalman Clip on mic
