    Looks nice. I never had the guts to try watercooling. Someday... someday...

    I had an external watercooling unit on my CPU for a while. It was very effective and extremely quiet. That said, I had to refill the damn thing every two weeks and it took up a ton of room.

    Never again.

    Excellent looking job Prisoner1138.

    Refilling every 2 weeks? That's not a good thing, as water shouldn't be able to just leave the cooling loop.

    Sure makes you go "hmmmmm" doesn't it?

    There were no leaks. And I don't even know how much evaporation, if any, is really supposed to be possible.

    When I rebuilt my system a year ago, the first thing to go was that damn watercooling unit.

    The water level is bound to drop over time just based on the fact that the hoses are porous(and even then it's negligible). The only systems that should need constant refilling are things like custom made bong coolers(and that's because of the open design).
