    I think so too ahfoo !

    The Hardware Labs SR2 560 MP are multiport radiators, 8 ports total. I would have liked to have seen them use metal stop fittings for the unused ports but they used POM or plastic ones. I'm going to install a temp sensor below the outlet port of each radiator, install an EK Quantum Torque drain valve in each, then install some metal stop fittings.

    This worked out pretty good, I really like these EK Quantum Torque drain valves. With a test fit, the drain valves are short enough to not hit the dust cover.

    Would I need two drains in each radiator or is one sufficient?

    Swiftech decided to use their own 3-pin ARGB connector. To connect the pump/res combos to the motherboard and control them with Amoury Crate, I need the Swiftech Iris MB Link which will be here today.

    Since most of the wiring will be done, I'll install the radiators and Thermaltake fans. The fans will be controlled with the Lamptron FC5-V3 fan controller, the temp sensors will also connect to the fan controller.

    Up until now things were going pretty smooth but I have a gripe and is worth mentioning again.

    I don't know who is at fault, either Hardware Labs put 4x28mm screws in their 4x30mm packages or Performance Pc's grabbed the wrong ones off their shelf but the 4x30mm screws I purchased are the same exact size that came with the radiators which are 4x28mm. So these screws are also too short. I don't know how else they would expect us to use their radiators other than mounting them into a case with a mounting bracket.

    According to reviews, Hardware Labs radiators are up there near the top as far as build quality and cooling performance goes. But, the too short of screws and plastic stop plugs makes me give two little strikes against them.

    Ok, gripe over as I was able to mount the radiators, I had to remove the blue antivibration tabs, this then made the screws long enough. There was some white glue left behind I painted over black.

    So all in all, all black fans doesn't look too bad. After getting the radiators in there, the EK Quantum Torque 90 degree rotary fittings worked well, I'll need two more.

    The coolant is uv blue, the tubing is clear/uv blue so I'll need uv lighting.

    I got four Darkside dimmable 12" uv led strips, two are extensions. I'll shorten the distance between the two connections with a loop or two and a zip tie, at least that's my plan as they have to be no longer than 26".

    I added a Darkside 3-pin fan cable (Type 1s) to connect and control them with the Lamptron fan controller. I could get a splitter to control both strips with one channel but there's enough channels to give them each a channel.

    I wish they were magnetic.

    I was able to shorten them up and install them in the front part of the case frame, there is a strip on each side.

    For the best results the led's should be hidden.

    Cpu loop is done

    Sometimes things don't always go as planned. After seeing the tubing from the cpu water block through the cutouts, it was too loopy. I added two EK Quantum Torque 90 degree rotary fittings, this looks better.

    I wanted a drain valve at the pump/res's too. What I did was used a male to male extender, a T and a Quantum Torque fitting on the end. I put a Quantum Torque 90 degree rotary at the T and connected the drain valve to it. Because it's rotary I can swivel it a little if I need too. These EK Quantum Torque drain valves are nice, they're compact and can be used pretty much anywhere, they also have the G1/4 male threaded end and a screw cap.

    The drain valves are black nickel, they look more nickel than black.

    Unscrew the cap, connect your drain hose with a G/14 fitting, pull the drain valve to open and drain, when drained push to close, unscrew your fitting and hose, screw the cap back on and you're done. It doesn't get much easier than that for draining your loop.

    Camera says I need to dust.

    While it looks pretty good in front, around back there are 0 places for cable management, nowhere to really hide the cables. So the best I can do is try to keep from blocking the radiators and psu fan as much as possible.

    I had to get an argb extension cable for the Swiftech Iris MB Link.

    The ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming Wifi has three argb headers and one rgb header, this worked out perfect.

    ARGB Header 1 - Velocity2 cpu water block
    ARGB Header 2 - Both pump/res combos
    ARGB Header 3 - Vector2 gpu water block

    RGB header - Thermaltake rgb plate

    Today I'll install the Lamptron FC5-V3 fan controller and connect everything to it, it has 6 channels, 30 watts per channel.

    It will go like this:

    Channel 1 - Left side radiator fans and temp sensor (outflow gpu side)
    Channel 2 - Right side radiator fans and temp sensor (outflow cpu side)
    Channel 3 - The two uv blue case fans in the front
    Channel 4 - The two back panel exhaust fans
    Channel 5 - Left side uv led's
    Channel 6 - Right side uv led's
