Not all the water right? Just enough so that I can reconnect it...? Bleeding took so long

Recconnect the barbs and add water as necessary.

Got more pics for ya guys, With the 90 degree barbs, enjoy!



Yummy! Yes those are AA's blocking up my tubes.

One 90 degree.....

One + One 90 degree barb....

Thre....jk, ok here it is

side

Quick 1 hour leak test to make sure nothing is loose... It should only be the radiator though cause i didn't touch nutin else.

Here is a cool bug!

My sister took the picture I think...


And belive it or not, I started actual work on monday and my bosses and collegus were talking to me about stuff at a mini meeting, and my superviosr asked me "What do you know about computer hardware?" Or something of that sort....

I thought about it for a moment... and then responded "I have a q6600 that is watercooled and overclocked to 3.6ghz for daily use, I used to run SLI 8800gt, and the majority of the money I spent in the past year has been on computer parts."

I hope it wasn't blunt or rude or watever, but it seemed the best way to describe my computer hardware knowledge. Ahh, felt good to get that off my chest at work, working with pentium 4's makes me a sad panda

Incase u read this bosses, I like my job, don't fire me

Read this. Then promptly remove the batteries from your watercooling loop. Don't make me come over there.
