    That is very sad though none the less.
    Ok Im back, unless there is another emergency that pops up which seems to becoming a norm around my house lol.

    Actually I did. I have sent 2 emails and left 2 reviews on their own site (and one accidental double post) on the block I bought and haven't heard a thing from them which is really disappointing. But chalking it off as a learning experience and unsure how much or if anything that I buy of theirs in the future, only time will tell but IMO its not worth getting worked up about it.

    Anyway on with the show...

    I got the block mounted after a little more frustration when realizing I couldn't use the factory ROG backplate and have to buy the Watercool one which I'm going to order soon hopefully as I need a number of other parts as well. Along with a G1/4-19 tap which is apparently not a very common one as I'm finding out and nobody local has anything like it

    Adding a couple pics of the GPU block install, along with the idea I'm attempting which may or may not work lol. I'm taking my Barrow distrobution block and making a new top for it so I have one continuous back plate and incorporating it in to the motherboard mount as well, replacing the stock backplate in the TT Level 20 GT. **fingers crossed** lol


    I took out the stock 12v RGB strip as I want to run DRGB in it, so I dropped in an Aquacomputer RGBpx strip, the one that has 30LED's in a strip about 27cm long and 5mm wide which fit pretty well in the channel that the original strip came out of. Since this thing has been such a pain in my butt, I might throw caution to the wind and router out the rest of the groove for the LED's and have the end of them come out the other side. Where IMO it should have come out in the first place

    New block is mounted, still debating if I want to polish it myself or cover it with a coloured vinyl or simulated metal vinyl or just paint it...

    So far so good, i drilled out all the holes for the main screws. I would take more pics but still have the masking tape on it and cant see the waterway mounted through it. Also this part is kinda on hold till I can get a Tap to make the holes for the fittings... Stay tuned...

        I am in Calgary, where did you get the tap from? Oh do you know what size drill bit do you need for it?

          I got it from KMS tools up near memory Express southeast.


          Mine is 18 NPT but I know it works with fittings as I've made water blocks and used it on them.

          7/16 drill.

            Oh cool beans! I just tried a tap I had here (had to pop out n buy a drill bit for it) and it seems to be working great. I drilled and tapped a small scrap piece of acrylic and then threaded an extension on to it and I can see the o-ring is sealing and pulled the fitting in all sorts of directions to see if it would budge and its holding tight My tap is a 1/2NF20 and a 29/64" drill bit lol

              Thanks for the info Kaidis86 ! I might still have a look at KMS though. I assume yours is a metric tap then?

                  Oh cool, I just found an 18NPT Tap and 7/16 drill bit at Lowe’s, going to see if I get a better seal on that one as it’s slightly smaller. Thanks a bunch for the help today, I always appreciate it

                    Just found out something interesting. I compared the original hole that i drilled with the 29/64 bit and tapped with the 1/2NF20 Tap and beside that I drilled a hole with the 7/16 drill bit and tapped with the 1/4-18NPT Tap and the first one is a fair bit smaller. I measured them with my caliper and the first is 11.5mm across and the second is 12.5mm across. I think Im going to keep moving forward with the original one as for me personally it seems to be working a little better. I took a quick photo to show the difference if anyone is curious
