    Fully Submerged. Only thing left to do is to get that damn PSU shroud...and put the side cover on which will be a pain.

    Have you never heard of the 3-in-2 drive bays?

    Also, how would you go fitting a 140.2 down next to your psu?

    If you've seen what I have built and use at the moment you'd know anything is possible if you use your mind and tools to make things fit neatly and still look good. :)

    Finally got around to cable management.. you guys didn't see the other side of the case but it needed attention badly.

    The only things left to do are:
    - Make PSU shroud from aluminium - I have the measurements now
    - Sleeve 200mm fan cable
    - take outside pics because that's what everyone does 0.o

    I would also like to announce that I am the third AU/NZ player to get the 5 star gold Jet service star as of yesterday! - BATTLEFIELD 3

    Thought I may as well update this to show you whats happening.

    I think I will let the picture say the rest, But the loop has infested itself from the plasticizing crap from the tubing.

    I am doing a full rebuild to clear as much as I can and replacing the tubing with the Advanced primoflex tubing instead of the predecessor PRO tubing.

    Unless anyone has a better suggestion on the tubing(needs to be white).

    Ps this is nasty shit.

    Wow! That is the worst i have ever seen it. How long did it take to get that bad?

    I have been using the black version of the same tubing and when I have broken my loop down I always have small amounts of the same substance in the micro channels of my CPU block. I'll change to the new stuff soon I think.

    Edit: If ever there was a case that deserved to be given the new version of the tubing for free, this is it.

    Sounds like I have made the ocau record for the grossest loop ever.

    I sent I support ticket to primochill just to see what they have to say about these pics

    I ripped apart the cpu block:

    Updated primochill case.

    Finished retubing with ADVANCED.
    It is not as flexible but nothing hot water cant fix.

    Leak testing..

    PCCG & Primochill have agreed to replace my tube.

    My processor is running much cooler after I some how overlooked the IN Port and had them switched all this time /derp

    Remarks on this rebuild:
    loop is performing well again
    cards idle at 33 degrees
    minimal white shit still floats around but you cant do much about it
    I used exactly 2L of demin

    I also found that if you set the powertune feature in AMD CCC at +20% I gained about 20FPS more in furmark.
