Drilling and bleeding!

Here's a quick update - time to start drilling!

Adding some fill ports:

2 done:

All done:

Not as messy now:

Time to get the workstation up and running so I can get back to work (once I've cleaned up of course).  I'll be using the Koolance dual bay dual D5 reservoir for now.  It's a real pain to use because it doesn't bleed well, however if you add on some tube from the fill ports on the res up to the fill ports on the case you can keep the water level above the reservoir and it really helps.

Now we've freed up a 360 rad for the workstation gpu/motherboard/ram loop, we can put the loop together:

I'm using AP15's temporarily until I'm done painting the low speed yates.  Also that one barb is temporary too:

The wiring is temporary too.  So for loop testing, I disconnected the QDC's pulled the motherboard tray out of the case and the 360 out seperately, then I reconnected and filled the loop and left it to bleed/leak test on the counter for a few hours.
