    Only thing i can pick on is that the second loop doesnt stand out much :< It just blends in, you can hardly notice it at first sight.

    other than that its ...

    Mike did the EK block come with the thermal pads or are they not needed.

    It comes with two long thermal pads for the VRMs (one set on each 'card').

    For the memory/GPU just use thermal paste. I use MX2, which does a great job :)

    I have a dumb question, why are two loops better than one loop with two radiators?

    @Funkmaster_A: Because a single loop will only work in sequence, which means first it takes up the heat from the CPU and North Bridge and then it continues on to the GPU(s). The water has already absorbed the heat from the first two sources and may become too hot for the radiator too handle. By splitting the system into two loops, you can solve this problem.

    @MK: F'ing awesome casemod. Truly beautiful!

    Dune 2 - Thanks mate... glad ya like it.

    Funkmaster_A - Exactly as Dune said. It means that u reduce the amount of heat having to be absorbed by a single loop. U also have much more restriction with one long loop (as there are more blocks/rads for the water to pass through) which can kill flowrate, and again, affect temps.

    Why is it a waste? If building and modding PCs is his hobby it up to him what he spends on it. There are many others who spend far more than mike does. Nothing more annoying than the envy of others. Its pathetic
