    Despite having no RAM, I'm not letting that deter me from posting pics.

    First up, the kink of fail :(

    Next, a few choice tools that came in handy :D

    Next, a bit of leaktesting, plenty of paper towels (Tesco value so poor absorptive quality unfortunately, but thankfully there were no leaks :))

    Filling the loop and trying (failing) to debubble it with a tub of distilled water, picked up a 6L container of the stuff from the Dialysis department at the hospital when I first set up the loop :D

    The whole loop set up:

    PERC 5/i in:

    Unfortunately, the bubble proliferation made the loop fairly useless, able to maintain idle temps within safe limits but rapidly overheating on load. So I used the alternative outlet on the pump to stick in a T-line with a bit of left-over hose and half of a quick disconnect (to seal it), filled it most of the way up with water and have been trying to get rid of bubbles since, there's quite a few I've got rid of now and it appears to be working a bit better but I haven't been able to test it properly with no RAM.

    T-line:

    Hopefully I'll get some RAM and back up and folding in no time :D

    Looks interesting but could you make the images slightly smaller? Takes an age to load!

    Ah, the antithesis to cable tidying. :p

    That'll be just like me then. Spaghetti junction? Ha! :D

    In my defense, pretty much all I could do with that is stick a cable tie around each bundle of SATA cables :p
    Unless of course you mean the cables behind the computer, in which case yeah okay :o
