Moving on to the pictures we all want to see: the kit in action! For the review I made sure to use all components, including the bay fitting.
Ready, check! Everything is in place and all fittings are screwed tight.
My only point of concern until now: Larkooler supplied a nice option to have the tubes led through a spare PCI mounting slot. Although this is a nice option on itself, the supplied holder isn’t very practical; the tubes barely fit through and the holes aren’t rounded but have sharp edges, which isn’t good for the tubes themselves. That said, pushing and pulling tubes in and out to get the right angle on the radiator is quite annoying work and very often causes the tubes to bend too far, which results in a bent tube.
Mounting the radiator on the back gives your system a very cool look and also a very shiny by-night performance.
Warning! Leak test!
Luckily nothing went wrong. I used the screw fittings because I’m used to them. Some people prefer push fittings because these don’t mess up the ends of your tubing; in the worst case I’ll just cut a small part off the tube.
Excuse me for the bad picture quality; the camera isn’t made for pictures by night. Then again, even here you can still see the white shine, which is brighter and clearer in reality, with a blue reflection from the blue LED way in front of the case, in the reservoir. Admirable, to say the least!
