Best not to say anything really - something I could learn

My laptop runs hot (thus the question) but isn't relevant to your thread so I'll not go on about it. Please excuse me.

I'm sure you'll enjoy that one: Make a removable laptop water cooler!

So, finally got the Reservoir Tank!

I deciced to go for a Koolance modular Reservoir body 60mm*80mm (shorter than the one on attached pic) and Koolance Pump Fitting & Reservoir Base.

The Res Base comes with a bracket which fit 120mm fan width , which is quite handy to make myself two holes that fit 120mm.

I choosed a modular ResTank because Koolance is the one who made a "Reservoir Coupler with Fitting Sockets x2 G1,4" (handy for a new loop) in case you want to expand the reservoir higher & fill it bigger, they've got Res Body from 30mm, 50mm to 80mm, shorts one.

I liked a lot this way of mounting yourself your own. Didn't went to a reservoir coupler yet, though!

Nor did take the Pump as i want to know before which DDC outflow ones i'll go.

Still some parts to grab...might have to sweat a little before!

I was a bit worry about that Alphacool xp3 Light Nickel/Acetal water block, then i made a Tim (zm-stg2) quick test over a hard surface.

Designed a "+" in center of the water block then pressed it by the four corners, on a thick plexiglas surface (15mm).

Here the result (attached pic)...Looks ok and spreading well rounded!?! what you guys think?

So back on that setup...

Finished with buying parts and now waiting for the compression fittings i last ordered to arrive next week.

Pretty happy of myself having step forward to watercool my rig.

One question...i saw some but not manies are washing/rinse their radiators with hot tap water in case residues remain inside, aswell wash all parts before mounting.

Also, are you using a little of tap water to wet the O-rings before tighten them onto their place?

Humm, looks some basic groundwork to do....

You can use what ever coolant you plan to use in the system to pre -dampen your " O " rings.
That way their won't be a cross contamination of fluids.
Washing your components before installing is always a good idea. You never know what was left from manufacturing process. I did this using a small amount of liquid dish soap and then rinse a lot. All done in the kitchen sink.
I use distilled water and a silver coil only in my system.
Because I'm paranoid I also ran my system 48 hours and then replace the distilled water again.
Probably not needed but distilled water is cheap. Now I know the system is as clean as I can get it.

Thanks for respond & suggestions...

I'll be using a "ready to use" coolant with an additive for the DDC pump mechanism and Corrosion inhibitor inside which i might be using only for tighten the O-rings.

As for washing parts, looks distilled water is the way to go.
