Right, I got some snaps before I got to send my motherboard away, hope you enjoy the few there are 

So for my coolant, I will be using tap water. But not town water, since I live in the country I get proper rain water. But to ensure that there is no bacteria I boiled my water first with the jug

Water goes in this bowel, and sits in the fridge for half an hour to cool down

Time to mix my coolant! 750ml of water, 250ml of Concentrate Orange Pastel

Funnel it into my squeezy bottle for filling up my loop

Then fill the loop up, do some bleeding and think that I need to add some yellow dye next time around to give it a more richer orange look so it matches with the build more :)

Now lets hope that I get my motherboard back quickly so I can finish this damn project!

Is it wrong that I had a Nerdgasm to this?

This looks awesome, but I expected it to be a little bit more saturated/orange? Looks quite bland, but still freaking awesome stuff! :)

Is the fluid going through the graphics cards backwards or is that only a figment of my imagination?

I dont think it matters which way through it goes

I've heard it reduces water flow, but now that I thought through it, I don't think it matters.

The thing that will reduce flow in this build is where it splits into three
