How would you say the copper pipe compares to the traditional tubing as far as safety? What I mean by that is when you need to drain your system to take something apart, how well it drains, how it comes apart, etc.
I would imagine that taking the hard tubing apart may be a little bit tougher than if you went the more traditional route...
I am asking all these questions cause I am really interested in doing the copper tubbing in my next build but I dont know if I have the courage or the skill to do it.

Hey Madbravniak, I think the pipes are as save a using tubing. Once the pipe is placed correctly in the fitting U can not have any leaks. I have made 3 builds with copper pipes and one of them is running 24/7 for 20months now.

If U use pipes in your loop U will have a little trouble switching parts. If U want to change your CPU U will have to drain the system and pull out the pipes at the CPU block. Then U can remove the block and change the CPU. With tubing U can easily remove the water block without draining your system and removing the tubing from your CPU block.
If U would change your GPU U will probably have to bend new pipes if the connection holes do not match up.

I would just give it a try Madbrayniak if U don't try it U will never know if it will work out.

Thanks Stealthybox biggrin.gif

Update !
Havent really done very much because lak of time for this project. I am hoping to get back at it when the holiday is over.
But there are some little thing that I already have completed. The copper pipes are done between the radiators and pump. And installed 2 drains as well.

My first idea failed the curves in the pipe where to close on each other. So the pipe didn't line up with the fitting.

Next attempt I used a bend of 135° instate of 90°

SDC11384.jpg

SDC11386.jpg

SDC11387.jpg

After that was done I sanded and polished the pipes.

The 2 drainvalves.

Next step up is fixing the PSU mount. As U can see there is only a few mm space between the drains and the PSU.

SDC11404.jpg

Made a test plate out of carton to check if its fits.

SDC11400.jpg

SDC11401.jpg

Time for the real work.

SDC11407.jpg

SDC11409.jpg

SDC11410.jpg

SDC11411.jpg

SDC11412.jpg

Glued the piece with Bison metal metal glue.

SDC11413.jpg

Now it needs 24hours before the glue is ready. Then its time to sand the the rest of the glue away.

Till next Update.
