Looks seriously awesome though, nice work!
haha, I have to agree that I had used tons of fittings in this rig.
But in total I actually had used only around 28 - 32 compression fittings which leaves me around 12 more as spares. Last count, I had more than 170 fittings in my arsenal which I had utilized around 110 - 130 of them in this built.
Wanted to add in additional 680 to do Triple SLI and additional 360 Rad but scrape the idea when news of my wifey got pregnant held all plans back. Baby comes first
Anyway, reason why I used so many fittings is because I love the clean, straight look of the overall design. Not really a fan of tubings looping around the rig when I have a total of 7 different blocks in this tiny casing (800D is huge, but when u do custom watercooling with so many stuff in there its tiny LOL)
To be honest, this is my first ever attempt in custom water cooling. I did a lot of planning such as the functions of different fittings (D Plugs, QDC, Pressure valves). 6 months ago, I dont even know what are ID, OD or even what are the basic setup should consist of.
