Here's a few more pictures of my build.

Newly added items:
TMS-200
INS-FM17
PAIR of GTX 285s with Koolance VID-NX285N's
Window Panel (still workin on the acyclic panel)

Believe it or not this is actually clear UV tubing with BLACK coolant:

I decided to go with black tubing on my VGA loop. It looks a lot better than I thought it would:

Thanks to all the forum members that helped me out on this project. I was refurbishing a portable WC system built a few years ago for engineering field use. Field use does not imply oil rigs or plantations, it implies convention centers, customer sites and semiconductor foundries. I'm basically done with the refurb and figured I'd post some pics. This system won't win any beauty or speed awards against current hardware, but it should get the 10lbs of s**t in a 5 lb bag award. ;) Actually, it tips the scales at an honest 50 lbs including the Aluminum briefcase. Thank goodness it has wheels! The purpose of this system is to run engineering tools that have a large memory footprint. The software distributes large jobs to 4 CPUs across 2 MBs via the embedded router/switch. The router has a WAP, so all this thing needs to be functional is a power cord and the antenna. We ran 4 demo stations at a convention one year using this as the compute server. It's affectionately known as The Football. :twisted:

Specs:
Tyan S2882 server MBs (2x)
AMD Opteron 250 CPUs (4x)
24GB ECC REG SDRAM (2GBx8 + 1GBx8)
1.2 TB HDD (4x SATA 300 GB)
DLink DI-524 Router (bare board)

Koolance CPU-300-H06 (4x)
Koolance GPU-180-H06 (2x)
Koolance fittings (various: splitter, nozzles, elbows, fill port)
ST MCP655 pump (modded to screw right onto tank)
HWL Black Ice Micro 80mm rad with 2 fans push/pull
Custom lower rad, reservoir, case
Rimowa Pilot Trolley Aluminum briefcase (has been flown all around the globe)

The last photo shows how tight a fit everything is. The MBs are 12x13" (EATX), and the case outer dimensions are only 17x14" That leaves 5" for the cooling subsystem with 80MM fans. Photo 5 shows the lower rad next to the pump. It sits at case bottom, with air from the HDD cabinet flowing over it. The green board upper left is the DLink router. The main rad with the 2 orange fans is upper right, and the pump is bottom right. The long tube passing across the top has to go that way because the lower MB has no room for tubes to cross over anything, and the top has to be the same as the bottom for a balanced flow. See 2nd to last photo; there's only 40mm between the MBs. The other half of the cabinet has the two 1U power supplies and the 4 HDDs. No photo of that other than the six 40mm fans you can see at the top in the control panel photo. Cheers!

For some reason I never could get the above pictures to display like I wanted so I linked them to an album with several more pictures of the build.

I Will have to say for my first water-cooling experience I am totally sold on Koolance’s products. The parts that I ordered for my loop worked flawlessly and needless to say do exactly what they are built to do! Initially did my test bed for this setup on a Cooler Master NV690 case, but the fans I order AeroCool Streamliner-Black 140mm Blue LED Case Fans are terrible, they cannot be reversed without bottoming out on the mounted surface and don’t move near the air that's advertised. So I picked-up a Cooler Master HAF 932 and packed this bad-boy with older MASSCOOL FD12025S1L3/4 120mm Case Fans and these babies kick some series airflow a**! The heart of it all took some pondering on how I was going to route all the tubing to maximize turn radius and heat transfer. I went with my proposed battle plan and that was pump/res - GPU/GTX480 - 120 radiator - CPU 17-980X - 240 radiator and back to the pump/res. What this did was allowed me to use the natural flow of heat up through the case, the tubing essentially does the same it chases the heat up and it works wonderfully!

Components used:

Antec P193 case
Gigabyte x58a-UD7 motherboard
Intel 980-x CPU
2 x Sapphire 5970 OC
Creative X-Fi Titanium Champion
Killer 2100
6 x 2GB Kingston RAM (@ 1600 MHz / 8-8-8-24-2T)
1200W Thermaltake Toughpower PSU
3 x 160 GB Intel X-25 SSDs
1TB WD Caviar Black HD
Blu-ray RW

Cooling:
EK x58a-UD7 full-cover block
Koolance VID-597 v2 GPU blocks
Koolance CPU-360 v1.1 block
Koolance RP-1000
Koolance TMS-200 Control Board
Koolance EHX-1320 4 x 120mm radiator & shroud (fans replaced)
Thermaltake TMG-1 120mm radiator & shroud
5 x Koolance 12025HBK 120mm fans (on the radiators)
Gelid Wing PL12 120mm fan (rear exhaust)
Notcua NF-P12 120mm fan (PSU / HD compartment intake)
200mm Antec (side intake)

I have the front 120mm fans and 200mm side fan as intake, with the top-mounted EHX-1320 in a pull configuration exhausting air, along with the rear exhaust fan. I changed the EHX-1320 to pull air out of the case because a lot of cat hair was getting sucked into the radiator, and it was causing quite a mess. Much less trouble with that now that I changed the fans' directions. My cat loves to sit on top of my computer, unfortunately.

I spent my Friday evening last week installing a small loop for my Radeon HD 3870. Not bad for my first loop I think. My video card is nice and cool now! :D

CH4 Extreme is now in place. Had to replace another leaking 90' fitting. There are only 2 angle fittings left in the case 1 is brand new 45' and the other is a 90' that i plan on replacing. Every 10mm 90' fitting I have installed to date has now leaked with exception to the one still in the case.

Bit of clean up to do still. Figured i'd tweak it a bit before i do a cable clean up again. The chipset fan people complained about isn't audible to me over the other fans even with the side panel off.

Very nice, your rads venting outside?
