Description

Just wanted to show off my recent yet fiddly build. This was my first attempt with hard tubing, didnt like the aesthetic of bends so went all in with fittings. I think this was a real sexy result. Please let me know what you think.

This machine is for casual use mostly, can handle all the games i have thrown at it so far.

Very nice, i bet it was a pain in the *** doing this custom loop in such tight spaces. +1

You have no idea! The top of the Res/Pump was especially difficult, I could not physically separate the glass tube from the bottom to try and move the location of the top ports (Injured my hands in the process) so I had to make do with the fittings I had. Really pleased with the results though :)

Lol I feel you. I've gotten my hands cut several times on my cooler, trying to plug my 8pin CPU into the motherboard. I ended up having to get chopsticks to push them in cause the gap was too small.

I have the same case and have been considering doing a similar loop. How are your temps? Also I absolutely love the red, black sand silver look. I love the hard-line with fittings for bends look. Your build turned out great.

Heya, glad you like it. Temps seem pretty good, I have the fans on low rpm so the temperature could be a little better if I cranked them up a bit. Idle and low resource use temps stay around the mid to high 30s. Under load they are around 65 degrees, based on playing Deus ex for around 2 hours at a time.

Be careful with your Radiator choices, I had to switch to a thin 240 EK one as bottom fan on it was obstructing the ports on the bottom radiator.

In addition I used thicker tubing with Barrow fittings which seemed quite thick, your results may differ depending on radiator choice and fittings.
