Pipework Repairs
As I mentioned long ago in Part 2, one of the CoolerMaster pipes supplied with the Aquagate had begun to kink. In the end, the pipe kinked so badly that I had to resort to running the system with the side door down.

I finally found the time this afternoon to replace the pipe with Codan fuel hose instead. As you can imagine, fuel line pipework is much less prone to kinking and wear than the flexible pipe that came with the kit. It's been running for nearly an hour now; even with nap mode off it has only just struggled up to 54.06degC, with the fans turning up a single 'notch' once 54 degrees came around.

I have also wired a small PCI slot fan up to run in tandem with the main processor fan. This does very little unless things get hammered, at which point it can get rid of heat at the top of the case very effectively. Not that that has been necessary yet!
