    Thanks for the link Nos :thumb: Quite entertaining.
    I doubt I'd take that much time, but an admirable job he did. Well, as soon as I can I'm gonna go water. Not sure what machine will be the vict...errr, subject, but it looks really fun to play around with.

    BTW here is someone who did watercool his PSU.
    I submerged the pump in an ice-cream container of distilled water, bled it for about 10 mins. Then connected the "out" end of the radiator, to the suction side of the pump while it was still submerged, then ran it from about 6pm yesterday, til around 2pm today (when i finished work).

    and OMG that link is insane!

    is that just normal distilled water? it will be cool if u get those UV reactive reactants that claims to help lower more temps.

    i am a newb to watercooling, but wer is the reservior?

    Nothing cools better than pure water. The other stuff like antifreeze is there to prevent rust.

    Its just normal distiled water. I don't have a window or anything to show it off so theres really no point in me adding UV reactive stuff.

    As weta has said, I'm not using a reservior, Mainly because of budget and space constraints

    If I was using a reservoir, there would be a few differences in that:
    1. There would be mroe water in the whole system, which may bring slightly lowe temps, but its most likely to be negligible.
    2. Bleeding the system would be a LOT easier because all the air gets trapped in the reservoir. It also makes it easier to add a UV die or whatever else I may want to add.

    Andy, one small question; How where you planning on cleaning the fluid after about 6 months time? The way you have it setup now I think you would have to take the entire system apart
