  The instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired.  If there weren't any diagrams, most people would be guessing left and right what to do and where things go.  Loads of spelling errors also...

   For installation purposes, the manual does have a perfect diagram of the overall design to follow:

   So the idea is pump to waterblock to radiator and back to the res/pump.  Now before you jump for joy and decide to throw this into your case, conduct a full day's run through.  This means, construct the whole setup outside of the case and run water through for a full day.  Let's get started and grab yourself a small basin or container for water in case it spills:

   Familiarize yourself with the connectors and how it bites down onto the tubing:

   On the previous page, we described how the radiator uses a different way of securing the tubing.  Crossover included another tiny set of tubing to act as an attachment.  At first, I thought this was insane, water is going to kill everything in my box the minute I turn this thing on.  But upon second observation, this method surprisingly locks the two tubes together without any leaks.  Again, without any aid from additional clamps or whatnot.

   Once those tubes are secured on the radiator, the next step was to put together the water block and res/pump connection.

   Next, connect the waterblock and res/pump to the radiator:

   The kit does not come with any kind of water additive, so if you are interested in this kit, make sure you pick some up.  You can find them at your auto part store.  I will be using some distilled water for our setup:

   Grab a funnel and place it over the reservoir.  The kit does not come with one, so if you are really desperate, make one out of a sheet of paper.

   Plug the pump in to power it up, continue adding water until the reservoir itself is full.  Place the top cap on and close off the system.

   You also want to check at the tubing connections to make sure there aren't any bubbles forming.  If there are, just tap it a few times with your finger to get them out.

   Let this setup run for about a day to ensure nothing will leak.  Next up, installing it into the box.
