MKG Cosmos II case mod - Page 72

post #711 of 794
sorry if i make a *dumb* question
but what kind (brand and type) of fitting are you using with copper tubes?
are they compression fittings? bittspower?
isnt any "incompatibility" as they are from other metal rather than copper?

Hey bob, I have to say I absolutely love the build. I've been reading through the whole log. I just scored a good deal on a CaseLabs M8 and I plan on doing the copper tubing for my build. It looks so clean! I have plumbers in the family so hopefully things will run smoothly when I attempt this, but I want to know, the 3/8" tubing you bought, was that soft copper or hard copper?

Anyways, excellent build and congrats on motm!

Those are Bitspower G1/4 thread "Multi-Link adaptors." They are compression fittings for short tubing to use with SLI/xfire instead of purchasing a bridge. Sidewinder sells them. http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/big1sishmuad1.html

I think the only metal issue is if you mix aluminum and copper. That's why you can't use a car radiator in a PC build. Most waterblocks are copper anyways, so it doesn't matter.

I may try that, now that I have won motm, I can post on other forums. I want to send some to CoolerMaster and ask them if they want to donate a cosmos 2 case as I have some different Ideas that I would like to try if I could do it all again smile.gif

haha! not going to happen my friend- I score on these sticks. I used to use 6 sticks of 1866 MHz dominators (2 sets). One of the sticks failed and Corsair sent me these as replacements. I sold the other set and kept these. They are very fast thumb.gif

I agree with the comment someone made about the orange lighting washing everything out.

haha! I'm pretty sure I didn't make the side panel window cut-out look easy as it was alot of work.. Thanks for the comment! It must be the pictures I took, because when looking at it, the lighting is pretty subtle, with most of it coming from the onyx floor. The orange cathode up top doesn't put out much light at all, just enough to get some light on the copper and mobo. I like how it turned out (lighting wise)

Thanks for the comment eovnu87435ds. I used 1/2" outer diameter straight pipe, but I had to sand down all the ends to fit into the fittings. What you want is 12mm OD tubing to prevent alot of frusterating sanding. It's pretty hard to track down but there are links to places to purchase it online. I think there is a link somewhere in the latter part of this thread. Here is a link to some places to purchase tubing in the 12mm size which is what will work prerfectly with the bitspower fittings.

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so thank you, I am truly flattered redface.gif
Well I used some runny epoxy, and a couple little cracks did appear when I was sanding it, but I just re-filled them and then bondo'd it a couple times and it was good.

Your paint job turned out beautiful! I like the orange bars too- thumb.gif
