    So here is a crude pic of the way I am thinking of doing my loop. Every tube connection except between the CPU and VRM blocks will have quick disconnects (the blue arrow and block) so I can easily change my loop up at anytime, anywhere in the loop. The dashed line is for when I just setup the CPU/VRM loop since my GPU blocks are not here.

    I do not think it matters because I cannot find any documentation but on that EK VRM cooler does it matter which port I use for the inlet? I know on the EK CPU block it does and it is the closest port to the center.

    OK wish me luck, my water cooling parts from performancepcs just showed up, 35 pound box, and my EK blocks showed up earlier, so going to start the build.

    Help! I do not get how to install the CPU and EK Velocity WS water block. In their instructions they just show the CPU sitting down on the socket. They say throw a line of TIM on it and then attach the water block. Every video including Intel's they show using the CPU caddy, attaching it to the block first, then attacking that whole thing to the CPU socket. The Asus Dominus Extreme came with that same CPU caddy I saw in the videos, but it seems like it A may get in the way (not 100% sure on that), and B not seat well with the TIM to spread evenly. I dunno what to do. I thought about using the caddy by itself to seat the CPU, trying to very carefully detach it and then add the block but that seems very scary and like I might bend pins in the process because the CPU could shift when the block is tightened down. Ugh. I wish their was a youtube video but none yet for this block. And EK's instructions blow and are very confusing. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    So I used the caddy. We will see when I fire it up how the TIM coverage is. I did a pea size line. That chip is huge. Here is a pic:

    They also say don't over tighten screws 3 and 4 geez. I hope I did it enough and not too much. This socket and CPU ain't for the feint of heart. And one pays more for these aggravations.

    So things are going slowly and I am taking my time.

    IMO this quick compression fitting blows Bitspower Premium G1/4" Carbon Black Quick Compression Fitting QCC5 For ID 1/2" OD 3/4". I could not get the clips to lock down.

    So I had a bunch of these left over from a previous sub zero build from way back in the day:
    Bitspower G1/4 Silver Shiny Dual Rotary 45-Degree Compression Fitting-ID 1/2" OD 3/4"

    They are working great. I had a few other types too I am using. Still doing fittings and tubing. Should finish these up in the next few hours. Then it will be time to add the RTV sealant and wait 24 hours before testing the loop. So looks like sometime Sunday before I can fire this thing up and see if it works at all and if so how the core and package temps are.

    Loop is finally assembled. Fans are on the Radiator tested and running (they do get loud on the highest setting given they get fed 45 watts each from the Lamptron FC2 fan controller and they are 48 watt fans. The Iwaki RD 30 pump didn't have a male molex on it just bare wire so I got a kit and started to build one, crimped the wires on the pins, just need to find a pair of needle nose to push the pins through the molex housing. Then I can add water and fire the loop up checking for leaks. Prolly do one more pass first checking/tightening the compression fittings and quick releases. Once the loop is tested at 12V I have to try to boot it up at that point and make sure it is good. Then I'll add in the 12V to 24V convertor so the pump will run like it was meant to and verify once again no leaks. Then I am going to do the RTV sealant like I mentioned before and let it dry 24 hours.

    Ran the loop a while with the Iwaki pump on 24V, a very very slight leak where one compression fitting goes into the bottom of the reservoir. My last EK 250 had the same issue on a different port, I ended up using RTV sealer on that and it stopped. I think it is time I try another reservoir brand. It was easy to pull the reservoir out of the loop with the quick disconnects they are working awesome. My first time using them and I will always use them from now on. I turned it on anyway since the leak was miniscule. It booted up yeah! I only put 2 sticks of memory (they came up at 3800 crazy they are rated like 3400+) in. Went to the BIOS fine. But I am tired so I will get back at it in the morning.

    I'll be following this. I really want to put together a custom loop for my own build so I'll replicate what I can. Good luck!

    OK so its fully up with both CPUs in SLI (no water blocks yet still waiting), all the memory 128GB, CPU/VRM with blocks in the loop, etc. Here is a pic, it ain't pretty yet:
