    Obvious that you haven't read the rules etc, have a read here, it's all explained
    VIP by invitation of Admins/Mods, usually you would be helpful, level headed, give good advice and be a long serving member.
    Ranks increase by number of posts

    and to become a God member you have to create a miracle, plus don't hijack a thread. If you have a question, start your own.

    Please keep this on track, if you have a question read the stickies or post a thread in the related sub-section.

    Do you have any pics with everything hooked up? I notice you have no power to your mb or video cards.

    How is that possible? Fittings are usually under $5 a piece, and you only need 2 per component.

    i'll show you how i got $200(going to make a stupid crazy build, and wc stuff you can actually reuse to some extent):
    20 of these: compression fittings
    2 of these: 90 degree angle
    2 of these: rotary fittings
    4 of these: stopper fittings
    and 2 of these: ball valves

    I'd say that video pretty much sums this up, hey.

    Great informative guide, pictures and diagrams also really help paint the picture, piked up some points I never knew.

    Thanks,

    i say this video stands for nothing!

    ive had feser one leaking all over my graphicas card for a few hours, didnt notice until the res empty'd and there was no problem (gpu is still running in friends rig)

    the fan is low voltage and the internals are magnets!!

    prob right in thinking that non conductive coolant is just marketing but the video doesnt prove much really

    can someone do a test? pour feser one over motherboard then try with water lol

    Well, pure distilled water is actually non conductive, but the same as with a non conductive coolant if you have alot of dust in your computer and the coolant/water picks up the dust, it can become conductive.
