would need compression push-in fittings and some nice chromed pipe, or plated or something polished.
sounds like expensive sex with someone elses credit card. lets do this!
I just hope you know were going to need extra pipe for bad bends and such
I think you're going to have to help me figure out the fittings we will need. I say we get the rads first, and get those all fitted in. Then get the blocks, and fittings, and we'll get the pipe to work with all of that. Does that round about right to you?

Yes smile.gif I figured I'm sinking a lot of my money into it, and Bob is sinking so much time into it, we might as well do EVERYTHING as perfectly as possible. No sense in going halfway when Bob made the case look as amazing as he has, it would be unfair for me to just throw a few cheap parts into that and call it good. It would be like buying a Ferrari chassis and putting the engine of my Cooper in it.

I'm interested in using solid pipe, but with my knowledge in this area I'm hesitate because you have to flare the pipe or seat the pipe . I'm going to do some research.

As for push in fitting's I would be happy to set up some test scenarios to see how much pressure these fittings can deal with.

0 refrigeration copper pipe is where you should start looking for the pipe you need matching the OD measurement. Cost of the pipe is not expensive , if you were to go see your local air con mechanics chances are you could get all the off cut of pipe for a carton of beer.

Yeah, I can get all of the mats needed for dirt, if it costs me anything at all, and I have all of the tools needed already, I just have NO idea fittings and things for the sort. I know copper is going to be the cheapest and easiest method, I just question the color scheme when it's all said and done.

Once I get a few more links on fittings and things of the sort, I'll run by the jobsite and pick up what piping they have, and I've got some hookups (Dad's company account) at a few local hardware stores. I'm sure he'll be willing to sit in his garage for a few hours and dick around with fittings with me. Especially since I'm helping him with his first build ever.

Check out this MONSTER that I picked up last night . His new PC doesn't support dual monitors for him with it's onboard graphics, and I feel like that was one of the cheaper ways to fix that.

So once we get all the rads and waterblocks, then I'll take a look at what it's going to take to run custom piping through it. It'll be a fun experiment.

what information do you have for using metal tubing, sealing metal with metal fittings is a whole new game.

For inside a computer, little to no knowledge. I've done a lot of plumbing, using mostly copper and galvanized steel, that's why I wanted to see what all has to be done inside a computer

Edit: I accidentally a letter

I say the rads, res and pump, and a couple of these sli push-in fittings first. This way, I can mod the pump (thanks sil3nt!) and we can figure placement of the pump/res, and see if the pipe/fittings is going to work. We can pressure test using the pump/pipe/fittings.

Then get the blocks, a couple items are OOS anyway right now except for at the expensive sites.

Ahhaha thanks for the compliment bud cheers.gif

From the looks and the quote from the link that goodink passed our way, the person who made that rig used push-in sli-type fittings. Honestly, it makes me a bit nervous, ad there seems to be nothing locking the pipes in place. I guess it depends on how tightly they 'push in'. I think that the compression firrings in the pc market are made for squashing tubing, not metal pipe. More research is needed.

As to copper not matching the build, we could possibly get them electroplated or anodized. Thats if we get them looking superb like they will have to if I'm going to leave them in there haha. I'm thinking chrome or black chrome or anodized black. God damn this is going to be hot sh it if it works thumb.gif

It would take much to set up a test scenario, but it's going to change in a case to get those bends perfectly square at the fittings is going to be the trick. If they are push fitting it will not seal if the pipe is on an angle. It's a area worth following up and adapting fittings. Even re machining threads to suit water blocks, i did about hour research on it this morning it could be possible to devise a system that could be quite successful.

nice! any tips you can pass our way would obviously be apprieciated smile.gif

Yeah, the bends are going to have to be perfect so that the pipe is perfectly lined up with the fittings. It's going to be quite a bit of trial and error, and discarded pipe, I'm sure.

I saw this episode of cake boss (one of my daughters fav shows) where he wanted to use pipe to mimic the st. lewis arch, and it took him like 7 pipes and it still looked like crap.. rolleyes.gif
