    The old girl is still running after Over TEN Years!
    Built back in the day when Sandy bridge died - I still have original ROG motherboard never bothered to return for swap.
    Coolent has had 1 flush in 10 years, was demineralised water and pure silver wire until recently I just put in some green anti bac for a fresh flush.
    Otherwise this old girl, my Chevy V8 just keeps on Powering on!

    Wow you have a keen eye!
    I haven't actually changed the coolant yet...

    It had 1 flush of the original start up loop, other than that just a top up now and then, maybe a few mils each year and graphics card upgrade top up.
    So its run on pure demineralised water with silver wire (wound inside the pump hosing inlet and outlet) for 10 years...

    I only just put in the green to begin its once a decade flush, soon

    Guys thats a D5 vario and Primochill hosing, Koolance & EK blocks, Bits power & Koolance fittings all under a TT 1200ww - it just fkn astounds me that it just keeps runnning. I feels like an 'ol faithfull V8

    Anyone else running an 'ol rig?

    Been listening to some Jacob Banks and the sub vibes the wooden floor boards :leet:, beautiful sound. The case has taken "blood for the blood GOD" many times (heavy beast)
    Yer man, so much old tech I had too, wish i didn't sell or give away...

    I am trying my hardest to see how long I can keep this running (without getting in there and building a hard tube funpark) anyway the new fluid change was breeze with the QD's and it has popped all the micro bubbles out after about 5hrs and just a 10m top up, gr8 loop o7
