Default Mini project ATCS 840 thingy.

Decided to watercool my 6970's so I bought 3, Watercool Heatkiller GPU X3 blocks for them.

I also got another 120x3 swiftech radiator to add to my current swiftech 120x3 cpu loop with the gpus.

Anyways... Pic time.

Before:


The Blocks:








Some pads and paste on a naked GPU:


One GPU done.


Which spawned more:


Radiator mounted and some GPU's inserted(giggity):


I had to make a little order of some bitspower D fittings to connect the cards. I also got an EK V2 pump top for my 355.

Haven't decided yet. It will probably stay where it was, and I will just attach it to the top of the new pump top.

So, up and running... No leaks yet. "knock on wood"..

Ignore the Red tubing, I will switch it out for all red when I get the right size D-plug fittings. As you can see they don't really go over the second o-ring so I had to order longer ones. Oh well, seems 1 o-ring is working good for now. lol
