More parts

Got some more parts today:

3 ssds and a bunch of fittings:

This meant I could do some leak testing with the gpu/motherboard/ram loop.  Still missing the other gpu for now though, but the important thing was to see if the ram block connections were good:

You can see water on the bottom right of the board.  The GPU didnt' have it's spare ports sealed tightened down properly.  Didnt' see that leak for a few minutes as it was dripping down the back of the block and was mainly hidden by the card and the block.  You can see it coming out and filling up the pci-e socket:

The bitspower crystal linke sli fittings were part of the order too.  The closest one in this photo leaked initially as it had fallen out of the o-ring.  They're not that sturdy so it's a bit concerning that they might fall out.  We'll have to see how it goes.

The top view is much nicer now though:

With red dye the crystal links won't look so out of place.

That's all for now.  Case should be back from powder coating with another 14 gentle typhoons on tuesday, so expect a big update then :)  Until then the board can dry out a bit ;)
