Finished this build a few months ago. This is my first water cooling build, the pictures were taken pretty recently, I want to make some changed like add the GTX480 to the loop but just going to put that on hold for a little bit.
Something I have changed now looking at the photo is the way the hose connects to the pump I now have these better looking black hose clamps on it instead of the zip ties.
Had been running a Hyper 212+ on that, but wanted something that would easily switch between platforms when/if I decide to swap out motherboards. This seemed to fit the bill and offers similar cooling to the hyper 212+. (Zap straps = the new Duct Tape.......).
