Default *56kbegone* *largepicz* Leak tests are not fun. But pics are...

(I didn't have a leak, you leak test for a few hours -24 hours to make sure that your loop doesn't leak when your in the middle of a game or something. I leak tested for a little under 12 hours)

I just installed my new 120.3 rad and gpu block.

First pic and 2nd pic are useless 90 degree barbs for me because the spacing of the barb holes on the radiator don't allow both to be installed. They are so pretty it is a shame.

Fear not, I had my old trusty plastic barbs. But I ordered some rotary barbs and I'll install them when they get here and try not to spill all the distilled water out.

3rd pic was a photography experiment. It's my rad/reservoir :P

4th is the leak test....

I'll post some moar when It's beautified.



But gpu was an epic win so far... I currently have it @ 760/1000 and it is under 41c's 100% load. I'm going to play around with it and get it back up to 800 core. (It's a single 4850, sold my other one).

Looks great DPG.

Too bad you cannot use those sweet barbs.

I got sweeter ones otw.



I'll take my own picz when they get here I wanna install them without draining the whole loop.
I've taken out the quad insert before for my dtek fuzion v2 without draining the loop so this shouldn't be that much harder.

K, they finally got here. It's a nice day so I took pics on my deck. I'll install them soon and clean up my case to make it look pretty
