On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.

Right, this is what to look for in the store. The sides of the package show small photographs of the main system components and list the detailed technical specifications of Aquagate Max.

BTW - ESA requires an ESA compatible motherboard, which is the nVIDIA nForce 780 or 790 series. With ESA compatibility I was allowed to see multiple pieces of information about the system including temperature of the liquid on the inlet and outlet side of the water circuit, fan speed, pump speed and water level. Pretty cool really.

Opening up the packaging here. Components inside are securely packed inside three separate Styrofoam compartments for protection. What's with the unboxing trend on YouTUBE by the way ?

Good, very good actually ... as you can see everything needed is supplied. The one thing you'll need to purchase though is a liter of distilled water. If you are incapable of getting that, bring water to the boil for 15 minutes assuring most algae is dead and calcium gone (obviously allow it to cool down before using). Now do you see that green bottle ?

Provided with the kit is a small bottle of coolant which needs to be diluted before it can be used inside the system. The concentrated coolant requires a 1:3 dilution with distilled water for maximum cooling capacity.

The kit uses 3/8" tubing and connection.
