Default Water-Cooling Work in Progress

With the help and insight of aspire.comptech aka The Water Cooling Guru,and a little bit of my own creative ingenuity, I have made progress on my first water-cooling system. I got some pics here for ya guys.





Tell me what you guys think. Also, the tubing that leaves the case thats connected to the T is where i will be pumping the liquid in, so its out of the case and safe.

Why the rad on the side panel?

Could you not find a way of mounting it off the back?

Yea, you should of put it on the back panel. Would of made it alot easier to route your loop. Better looking also

I couldn't mount it on the back, that was the first thing i wanted 2 do. But, turns out putting it on the side was a lot easier to route the tubing through. And also, i thought it went well with my case :-) But i haven't finished so i don't know how the temps are gonna be
