Tygon 1/2ID-3/4OD. Great stuff. Very flexible and does not kink easily. did not really need the coolsleeves except for on the one loop from chipset to vidcard. still gotta shorten some tubing, and hide some wires...

Dyelite automotive coolant dye...helps to spot leaks. I pulled all the blocks apart for cleaning, got a new SKT775 top for my A64 TDX, so was unsure of the reliability of the seals. I have ordered some red fans and red dye as well as a reservoir for the rig to finish it off...might take a week or so.

Nice Set-up!
I like how the blocks on the video card glow from the light behind them.
Is there a way to mount those cathode lights instead of just setting them there?

No, unfortunately. Rig looks quite different ATM...changed fans and coolant, and got rid of all teh blue/yellow/green and gone just red/black. I'll post more pics later.

Thats what I'm talking about!
Great job

I can't tell if those are hard-drives (w/ windows), optical drives (w/ windows), or just fans...

edit: ok I'm stupid, they are fans, look at the other picture Booman!
