Ok, I think I figured out how many fittings and what types I'll need for My next PC known as the Pegasus, this will use an unknown amount of Black Tygon 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD tubing(I'm looking at buying 20', hopefully that will be enough), 2-Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 480x120x80mm radiators and 1-Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 240x120x80mm radiators, an XSPC Dualbay Pump/Reservoir(I have the Pump/Reservoir already), the cost for the fittings alone is looking like a total of $302.78(+$7.00 for 2 extra plugs, or about $309.78 total) and that includes shipping of $16.61. So that means I'll need to remove the 4 fittings on the motherboard and cpu after I've rinsed both blocks out, I'll have to rinse out all My blocks before use to check or remove old dye or bits left over from the machining process, only the fittings, tubing and pump/reservoir shouldn't need this to be done before everything is assembled and leak tested. All of this in one case too, now if only Phantek will have these cases at FrozenCPU in a few months(at Comdex 2013 they mentioned maybe July for about $250.00USD).

@ ML1: The area has had gusts up to 75mph and the mobile home has earthquake bracing as required by county code, the mobile home been through wind, snow, rain, hail and quakes since 2006 with no damage, so I'm not worried or concerned.

Vic ML wasnt talking about your mobile home he was pointing out your computer being on the edge of the counter why Grace could easily push it over the EDGE.

It was hard to tell, Grace once got some dry food under the present case, but She never pushed on the case, not even once and She still doesn't, so no worries.

That might be true, But an earthquake looks like it would send that thing over the edge. That one wheel is mighty close to the edge. But its your money.

Possibly, but that's a temporary location, since that part of the counter isn't braced much, once I get a stand for My printer, that case will go on the bottom shelf of this desk, since I doubt that ledge will support a lot more, the HAF-X is now about as heavy as My current PC and the HAF-X is short by 3 video cards, the 3 blocks, plus fittings and water, instead of having the printer sit on the box of fan fold paper. The last time this area experienced a quake, it was a 3.0 nearer to Barstow CA than here, nothing happened outside of a small jerk, but I didn't have the case on the counter then and that case even without any wheels is too tall to be under the upper cabinet. Before that there was a 5.0 quake in Big Bear CA that shook the house and made the place sway a bit, but that was it, Big Bear to Yermo is 44.68 miles in a straight line, by highway it's 65.0 miles or 1 hour and 15 minutes driving time, that info I found at DistancesCalculator.com.

Ok I won an EVGA GTX570 1570 video card on ebay for $143.91 with shipping. I can't get the pads yet since I need to buy a can of eggs, but as long as I can buy the 5 thermal pads for $32.34 w/shipping being included in September I'll be ok. I had to take out a small loan to do this, that on August 1st I'll be paying back. The 570 will for a short stint be here for testing until I can get the pads, then be converted to water and installed in the Pegasus(the newer PC that I'm slowly building).

The 5 thermal pads are enough to equip 4 gpus with fresh thermal pads, but then I have plenty of AS5 for the 4 gpus that I now have, slowly things are falling into place, as I have planned...

It's an EVGA GTX 570 1570 card, I won the card on ebay for $138.00, the shipping was $15.25 for a total of $153.25, I saw an opportunity and took it, the earlier bidder didn't stand a ghost of a chance, victory was mine. It's not a supercharged version at 732MHz, but it will do, it's going into the new PC once it's been tested for a bit and then rebuilt with fresh Koolance 0.7mm thick thermal pads and AS5 on the gpu.

Ok I went to USPS and I brought home the newest card that I have(I thought for sure It would take until Thursday to get here, as the 570 came from CT), before running it for testing, I'll have to take the cover off and give it a good dusting and maybe some AS5 on the gpu only(which I have plenty of), then when I get some Koolance 0.7mm thermal pads I can put this card in a 480 water block, the two together make 1050, ;) like where have I seen that number before? IRATA...

Ok I got the EVGA GTX570 in the HAF-932 case that I'm using for testing, the bios on the card only goes to 85% for the fan, I think I can solve that later on if needed, the card is plugged in to power and has downloaded 93 wu's since Boinc recognizes the card as does Windows 7, the temp at idle is 1C higher than the 580(32C @ idle) and the exclude statement for the 580 is in place and working, the reason for the exclude statement is cause the 580 needs new thermal pads as does the 570, though the 570 will or at least should do as it is for testing purposes, though when I put the 570 and the 480 block together they will have new thermal pads and AS5 heatsink compound.
