Not bad at all, but why is the tube going from the res to the pump so long?


The reason for that is that I'd like to able to take the res out when bleeding the loop.

Ok guys ... it's time for another update here. I installed the Alchemy sleeved cables from BitFenix as well as the fans. While installing the fans I unfortunately noticed, that there wasn't enough space anymore to install two 140 millimeter fans So I ended up installing three 120 mill fans in the front, one 140 mill in the top and another 140 mill in the back. Initially I wanted two 140 mill fans in the top but it looks like I will have to order another 120 mm fan, since there is enough space for one of these.

When it comes to sleeved cables, I'm always surprised by how much they can improve looks. At first I'm always thinking, well ... it's a detail and a small upgrade, but damn ... when it comes to looks ... it's definitely not just a small upgrade.

What remains to be done now is putting the Scythe Himuro's either in the 5.25'' inch bays or at the bottom, where there are the spots for the hard drives.

On another note: the color of the BitFenix fans is nice, but I have to say, I would like them to be brigther. I also noticed that the bearing of the 140 millimeter fans appears to be of higher quality than the 120 mill fans. With the 120 mill fans there is an audible bearing noise. With the 140 mill fans that particular aspect is better but the bearings are also not completely inaudible.

Ok ... it's about time now ... pictures

Ah true ... something else I forgot ... I need to put some additive to the water. I'm not really sure, whether I want yellow or orange water and I'm also not sure, if it should be pastel color or not ... Also I don't know if I should be putting in more lighting. Atm I have the feeling, that the lights inside are not bright enough.

Maybe you guys have some thoughts on this
