  1. To all a very Merry Christmas!! ?????

     

     

  2. When your GPU has been stuck in PCI-E X2 mode for a whole 3 months.... ?‍♂️

  3. Back up in running order! :) This took way longer than it usually does with all the further cleaning needed from the extended test.

    Bonus shots of blocks and cleaning. Note this was an +18 month test of the same fluid. No real clogging or gunk build up but lots of copper deposits most likely transferred from my rads onto all the nickel components. The GPU block did have some yellowing and hard deposits from running pastel all it's life and never being opened until now for a real deep cleaning. The yellowing washed off and most of the deposits came out with a couple hours of polishing.

      @W-L Awesome, I've heard of it before but havent done a crap ton of research (the build isnt until at least 2019) so I'm taking it slow :P Browsing the different Exotic cooling pinned threads and all.

      @TVwazhere Just take your time doing research, and getting quality components. If you want you can always get a kit to build off of.

      Almost ready for the Pastel, leak testing.

      Kits are intriguing but in the end I really wanna go custom, at this point using mostly EK parts with Bitspower fittings (because people wont ever stop suggesting them)
