Update for everyone. It's getting tight in here. I've had to rethink a few plans thanks to getting some measurements wrong. Configuring this res to work with a passthrough fitting directly below it might be difficult, it looks like there's enough clearance to pull it off.. just
. I'll have to remove the top cap to fill up and the main concern is getting it back on again after.
I did about 75% of the tubing today. I can't do the rest until I drill out the midplate for the pass throughs anyway. Here's some pics:
Here's the main problem area. Where the fitting meets the midplate is where the passthrough will be. This clearance leaves about 5mm between the top of the res and the radiator... it's gonna be a really tight fit. Let's hope I don't have to order a smaller res QQ.
Edit: ah, I decided not to go with the matte black Tygon. I thought the primochill stuff matched up with the fittings and gave the whole thing a cleaner feel.Edited by Glancey - 7/19/11 at 9:23am
