    Default Going RED

    This could go in the cooling section or Modding....I will attemp to show how to set up for water cooling like I was shown by John...I am trying the monsoon compression fittings and a alphacool Radiator...Feser stopped making rads but both feser and alphacool are made in Germany and both use 90% copper guts....Here is the Radiator, reservoir, and pump with the Monsoon fittings attached..I also had all the wires from my PSU done in red..I have a friend thats getting ready to start his own custom PC shop and if I got the stuff he wanted to practice..it turned out pretty cool..I have never been one that really went into the looks that much...But red is what I have....Here goes

    I use a alphacool reservoir...I like a big case and everything inside...John ( norton) turned me on to water about 2 years ago..I always liked it and stuck with it...The alphacool res goes in a 5.25 slot..I keep it high up as I can get it..I will also be using Primochill tubing on this set up..Many of the tubes get a resin on them..Primochill says there's won't do that...we will see....Im also using the little wrench that comes with monsoon fittings....so, the water loop begins

    Im going to go in order of the loop as John showed me years ago...It has always worked well and kept my CPU much cooler...

    Now from the reservoir to the water pump and out the pump and to the CPU block

    Now to leave out of the CPU block and go into the Radiator...as you can see it is mounted with 3 RED fans in my case...
