I apologize to the Moderators if I didn't do this correctly. Here is the continuation of photos.
You can see The Swiftech NB cooler was in the way of the GPU WB mounting bolts, so I had to shorten them.
I made the pump isolation mounting plate of various layers of Aluminum, steel, and different densities of foam.
All tubing is 1/2" ID with some 5/8" OD and some 3/4" OD.
Just a few rough reference measurements using built in Abit EQ and an external electronic temp gauge.
The Thermaltake water temp gauge was defective from the start( flashing all display, then backlight completely quit).

Nice handiwork!

I like the CoolSleeves, it still reminds me of something I had to do...

Thanks. Yes it is. This is my first attempt at WC, so I went with this rad hoping it would give enough cooling. I was surprised when running my hand along the sides the ends were only slightly warm, and the center was cool!

I myself am a little dissapointed with the Black Ice Xteme II. It doesn't cook me food or wash my clothes. I think it's defective.
