Hard fittings

After buying a bunch of hard fittings, extensions, snakes, 90s, 60s, etc, I think I have everything figured out. I only need to order one more snake and the motherboard should be pretty cleanly adorned with chrome fittings. The blue tape pictured below is just to prevent scratching. The CPU to mobo connection was a huge pain, and I'm a bit worried about it and leak testing, but we'll see. On the boundaries of the motherboard, there will be quick disconnects so it remains fairly easily removable:

Before someone comments on the fittings on the SLI bridge, I had some extras so I figured I might as well use them if I could:

While waiting for my order, I'm using the blue tape trick to draw lines for drilling my through-panel quick disconnect connections:

I'm still working tonight, drilling holes, hopefully I can be ready for the last parts to come in, but I'm not sure I'll get all I can done tonight...

I got a bunch of my through-panel fittings drilled and mounted. With the fittings I just ordered, perhaps I'll be ready for pressure/leak testing this weekend.

I'm actually doing something a bit different with my radiator. First, it is a MO-RA3, and wouldn't fit well in any variation of the M10. Second, my sim rig and case sit right under an HVAC air return. The return happens to be quite a large OSB box on the inside, so I'm going to place my radiator inside the air return. It will be both out of sight, and no heat in the room! I get hot enough when racing, so it will be a slight extra bonus to never feel any heat. Also, even though my 4 x 180 Silverstone fans are quiet, they will be totally inaudible inside the air return.

I was actually considering attempting it entirely passive without fans, considering the existing airflow through the return, but wasn't sure so I figured in addition to the air return flow I would force air through the rad.

Any thoughts on that?

It will be both out of sight, and no heat in the room! I get hot enough when racing, so it will be a slight extra bonus to never feel any heat. Also, even though my 4 x 180 Silverstone fans are quiet, they will be totally inaudible inside the air return.
I was actually considering attempting it entirely passive without fans, considering the existing airflow through the return, but wasn't sure so I figured in addition to the air return flow I would force air through the rad.
Any thoughts on that?

Sounds interesting. Makes me remember a picture I saw in one of the forums where a guy had tubing running into his basement and had a whole slew of car radiators hooked up to it, and I believe it was entirely passive cooled.

So if you do the air return idea, it seems like it would work well in the summer when you have cool air blowing through the vents. But do you think it would still work during winter with hot air blowing? You'll have to keep us posted. Very intriguing.
