    And here is the long awaited Part 2 of the Watercooling build.



    Today we are going to be sleeving the EKWB D5 Pump.



    We start by pulling it all apart and taking off the Reservoir.



    Disconnecting the Fan plug.



    Threading on the sleeving and heat shrink.



    Now getting a flame and letting the heat shrink do its thing.



    Sleeving the Molex cable.



    And getting a better result every time



    And there we have it! 100x betting than stock and really no that hard to do.




    Be sure to check out the video for the full sleeving experience and leave a like if you enjoyed it

    Many more parts to come. Stay tuned.
