So if my count is right that's 26 fans and about $600. LOL

No, I have 41 fans, because I am using Push-Pull fans configurtation on all radiators)
I bought only 5 new fans. And... I don't care how much it cost) Maybe 800, maybe 1000) Who cares?)).
All others I have already, and it works very well.

Looking great. You have inspired me to build a custom loop system for my son. Obviously not nearly as beastly but for him one hell of an upgrade.

Hopefully your toshiba drives last longer than mine, one of mine is only 6 months old and has 12 reallocated sectors already -_-

So... I had MANY problems with this build since I posted my last log :(
It's always like that, when you building such huge progect...

There are some of problems, and how I solve them:
*I had leaks in few spots - I changed my tubes and some fittings
*Both my Lamptron FC5v2 fan controllers has been broken!!! - I repaired and modified them! They have power of 30W per chanell. But now they can work with 60W per chanell.
*The serial pump configuration in my Koolance RP452x2 top-reservoir was incorrect. It was very loud and had not enough flow rate! -
*ROG cable was too short for my connection - I modified it to 1.5m, and sleved it to black sleave. It had 16 wires!!! o_O
*EK-WB R6E Monoblock was factory broken - I returned it by warranty and recieve new!
...and other 10+ small problems.

And now I can continue my worklog. So let's do it:
*Koolance RP452x2 top-reservoir: how it was and how it is now!
