Last of the parts for the build is one the way. I ended up getting a wd blue hdd cause it was 15 bucks cheaper, a mx 500 250gb ssd, coolmoon fans x10, then of course the pteg tubing and black fittings. Also ordered a flow meter/digital temp gauge.

Did you purchase a SSD for a OS drive? I just finished using my laptop for a week and it has HDD OS that is so slow when using everyday programs and web surfing with many tabs, what a nightmare to use. SSD is so-much better for everything moving along quickly on the PC. With a HDD the active time is at 100% anytime something needs to read or write and the hole PC grinds to a halt sometimes and that does not happen for me with a SSD.

The petg tubing, fittings, flow meter, and 240mm radiator came in, still can't put anymore together really till fans come in.

If anyone knows someone with a old maelstom v2 dual bay laying around no longer used, i need a cap fo mine. Swiftech is checking with their manufacturer but unit has reached end of life cycle and they have no spare parts
